Sunday Night Pic Post

A great week. We had a wonderful four previews of End Days at Williamston Theatre. The shows were terrific (and very well sold!), and we got really good feedback from four excellent audiences.

Also, my son had his first Solo and Ensemble competition, where he got a 1 and 2!

20130127-215345.jpgIt’s that time of year again! My friend Duncan is the Head Brewmaster at Grizzly Peak BrewPub in Ann Arbor, and since 2005 he’s brewed a seasonal beer named after me, Bitter Tony’s Rye Bitter!

So, tonight a bunch of us went and enjoyed some good food and my eponymous drink!

One of the wonderful people involved in End Days cleaned the snow and ice off my car after the show the other night before I got outside… and if that wasn’t enough, they left me a note on my trunk! 🙂

Thanks anonymous snow scraper!

Last pic of the night:
We had a great morning on Saturday, playing a bunch of Get Bit!

What’s Get Bit, you ask? A fun silly family game where you’re all a bunch of robots, swimming away from a shark… And to win, you have to be the last one to lose your limbs! Check it out here!

Tomorrow is Monday – have a productive, fun-filled week everyone!

Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.

Birthday Beer: Bitter Tony’s Rye Bitter!

I’ve talked in the past about how awesome my friend Duncan Williams is – Duncan is the Brewmaster at Grizzly Peak Brewing Company in Ann Arbor.

Well, after I teased him about it, (as reported here), Duncan started brewing a beer named after me for the Winter season! The good news is, it’s back right now, on tap at Grizzly Peak. The whole family visited last night, for my “Birthday Eve” as Max kept calling it, and we had a great time. So – if you’re near Ann Arbor, get yourself to Grizzly Peak quick and drink it!!

The beer

Me, enjoying my son AND the beer!
