    You can make a reasonable not-puke beer ice cream float with a nice porter.  For real.

     

    You gotta admire that kind of out of the box thinking.

    The process is the goal.

      The Maui Brewing Company makes a yummy coconut porter that is so damn sweet it can only be consumed in tiny quantities or as part of something like an ice cream dish.

         Thanks for the tip!  I'm going to give it a shot, but maybe not tonight.  I've got a 5k race in the morning.  Sure, it's called the Dino Dash, and I'm running it with my 5 year old daughter and it'll take about an hour and half to complete...  but I better wait till later anyway.   

        Cool thing is that my daughter really really wanted to run a race after seeing me do my Little Rock half marathon so I entered us in this 5k tomorrow.  She's super excited.  Even better, I've never ran a 5k before, so my PR will end up being the same as hers!

          Q: Anyone here do tai chi?

          A: Beer and ice cream!

           

          And yes, can't wait to try a porter float.

          “I used to be a runner. Uh-huh. Not a marathoner. A runner. Marathons are bullshit. They’re all hype. Some official picks a random day, and rain or cold, you’re out there pounding the pavement alongside 50,000 other dumbfucks. No. There’s some things it’s better to do all by yourself.” Augustus Hill, Oz

             That's really neat Smile

            It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

              To clarify, I called it "reasonable not-puke".

               

              I didn't say "good dessert".

               

              If you like it, cool, but don't expect that.

                  Fantastic!  We did it in 57:13.  Miri loved every bit of it, but three quarters of the way through she said matter of factly "Daddy, I think next time I just want to do the 1k.".
