    I miss having a kegorator.  Don't drink enough beer to have one, now.

    Went to the Christmas Village this evening with the family.  Not nearly as crowded as when we go on weekends, much better.  Always like that spot.
    Was going to go to the one in FDR Park this year but they rip you all around for pricing.  Anyone checked that place out?

    Have been to Xmas village a couple times this year, including this last Saturday which was a terrible decision. They do a good job these days.

    Heard good things about FDR Tinseltown but the cost is ridiculous. 

    Shadybrook is our spot for light shows and such

    My wife wanted to go Friday and I am so glad we went tonight.  Different experience when mobbed. 
    Yeah, we were set to go until we pulled up the pricing for FDR.  We just did an Eagles ticketholder event at Penns Landing and everything was free.  The idea of paying a shitton for much of the same stuff as those other two places didn't add up.  (But, it does look like good family fun.)

    Haven't checked Shadybrook - will look that up.

    Yeah, Wob, it is mostly for the kid, although we enjoy it also.

    I love the winterfest at Penns landing. We have a tradition of skating and hanging out there every Black Friday (or Saturday) and usually go back once or twice over the winter. Having our daughter’s bday in February there though. 

    Shadybrook is also expensive these days, but also a tradition we’ve been doing for years. It’s become a much bigger set up too

    I am pleased to announce Tired Hands now sells sixtels of their beers. Apparently they've been doing this for about six months now. Picked  up Alien Church for the ol' kegerator this afternoon. Giddy the fuck up. 
    had to google a “sixtel.” good little size….(55) 12 oz beers, but I’m sure our juggler drinks pints, like a real man. if I may ask, what’s a sixtel of good beer cost?
    $130 for this one. Feel like most others are closer to $100.

    We were told this is last year for the Penns Landing one.  Developers are taking over.

    Yeah the 95 capping and park project. Not sure I realized this was the last year though. Am sure there will be something similar when it’s all done, which will probably be a decade from now

    so, at that rate, a sixtel would be 13 bucks!

    Back in the late 90's (god bless 'em) I feel like Natty Light 1/2 kegs (that's probably what you mean by full) were about 60 bucks maybe? Could've been less-- I was hammered back then and don't remember much.

    A sixtel is 1/3 of a half keg or 1/6 of a half keg?

    A sixth of a full keg.
    Here is a handy chart. Honestly, I had no idea what a sixtel was until I got the kegerator and only wanted to have it stocked with quality beer

    We payed $50 or so for a keg of light beer back in the day.

    I just remember the old Yuengling kegs were rounded and had no handles. Basically impossible to pick up.

    That would made grabbing the kegs from parties, late, much tougher.
    Who knows how many times we carried back a keg with little left to finish at the house and then used the keg for the deposit next time.
    College daze

    yep….and they’d give you the pumper thing and you’d pray you wouldn’t get 10x foam per actual beer.

    hey, philly guys….who is the number one most revered guy in philly sports history?

    or break it down by sport, if you must. I might be able to guess basketball (or not) but there seem to be many candidates in baseball and football.

    New Pearl Jam music on the horizon, eh gents?

    Also--Nike has ruined jerseys across all sports. They should go back to mostly just sneakers. Horrid.
