Beer, Bourbon and BBQ Oh My



This weekend join cool dads at the Beer, Bourbon  & BBQ Festival in Tysons Corner, VA.  Get your daddy fill of 60 beers, 40 bourbons and loads of bbq from the last stop on this traveling festival that has already made eight previous stops along the East Coast.

Unlimited beer and bourbon tastings so don’t be shy.  You can Uber home, take the public Metro train or bring a designated driver.  Kids are free but my suggestion is to keep them home.  NOTE: This isn’t a timid wine festival … Pig and booze on tap!

Jungle Book Movie Trailer Sent Chills Up My Spine

WOW!  Live action retelling of Disney classic from the director of Iron Man. Jon Favreau will bring to life one of my favorite books in April 15, 2016 and it looks awesome.  Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson and more help raise the ante on this classic story and smash what we remember from the sweet little cartoon movie. Can’t wait to take the kids.  You must watch.

Virginia Wine Festival Turns 40

Screen Shot 2015-09-13 at 8.38.16 AM

The weather yesterday in the DC area was suspect at best. Today, if you are in the area, don’t miss the 40th Annual Virginia Wine Festival sponsored by Across The Way Productions.  Stock up, sip and have an all around good time at the longest running wine festival on the east coast. If you have never been get ready to be impressed by 30+ wineries and their offerings.

Tickets are still available; $35 gets you in the gate and all the wine tastings you can stand … literally. There is food but normally nothing not as impressive as the wine.  Bring your blankets and dress for the cool breeze.  #VAWine  11am-5pm  The Plains, VAScreen Shot 2015-09-13 at 8.26.44 AM
