In Which Baseball is Replaced by Beer

beer.jpgWhen it comes to the this here Biz Blog, I am still having some trouble establishing an offseason groove. After five months of relentless activity, it is tough to adjust to the somewhat slackened pace.

But one club who is not having this trouble is the Charleston RiverDogs, who will be using their promotional savvy and impeccable facilities in order to put on a first-class event this Saturday.

Instead of sulking about the end of the season, the RiverDogs are instead devoting an evening to an activity that can be enjoyed year-round — beer drinking! Check out the following info, which, like so much other info contained on this blog, was obtained from a press release:

“On Saturday, September 20, more than 100 different types of beer will quench the
taste
profriverdogs.jpg buds of every die-hard beer drinker.  From 7:00 – 10:00 pm patrons will
receive sampling tickets, each good for a taste of their favorite beer, and the
first 1,000 people will receive a commemorative sampling glass.
 
Along
with great beer, the entertainment is sure to bring the house down with the
sounds of the band Spunjwurthi. Mellow Mushroom and Home Team BBQ will have
food for purchase as well as ballpark fare offered up at The Joe concession
stands.”

And regular readers of this blog will remember that the concession stand offerings at Charleston’s Joseph P. Riley Stadium are anything but ordinary. Regular readers will also be aware that this is the first time that immortal rock gods Spunjwurthi have ever been mentioned.

into the facility”. This allows me to borrow a line I used in a post last year, about a similar beer fest staged by the Fort Myers Miracle:

“So, please, don’t even attempt your usual scheme of dressing up like a baby in order to get free admission.”

In an attempt to be more environmentally friendly, Ben’s Biz Blog will rely more and more on recycled content throughout the offseason. Get used to it!
