Hoover – Alabama Craft Beer Festival – 21st September, 2019

If you’re a lover of quality craft beer, you need to get along to the Alabama Craft Beer Festival, to be held in Hoover on the 21st of September, 2019. A showcase for Alabama breweries, the Festival also includes the 2019 Alabama Craft Beer State Championship, a prestigious award that is coveted by all entrants. Craft beer is big business these days and Alabama is home to some of the finest breweries of all, so this is certainly an event that should be in your calendar.

What can you expect to see and do at the Alabama Craft Beer Festival? Well, drink beer of course! There will be other drinks available too – water will be on tap if you don’t want to drink also – but mainly the idea is to sample the craft beers from some of Alabama’s best breweries. There is no other opportunity to sample so many different brews in one place in Alabama, so don’t miss this chance.

Penny Beer Garden

One of the highlights of the Alabama Craft Beer Festival is the ‘Penny Beer Garden’. This is open to general admission ticket holders from 2 pm to 5 pm on Saturday afternoon. As Alabama state law does not permit the giving away of free samples, you pay one cent per sample when you are inside the Garden. In fact, the Festival invites you to deposit a quarter, and help yourself to 25 samples, so you don’t need to carry a lot of cash! Just remember to be honest!

The many breweries entering the Festival will be aiming to win the grand prize at the State Championship, too. Best of show last year went to Folklore Shadow Caster, and the local brewery also took second prize as well as being awarded Brewmaster of the Year. There are several categories, including American Pale Ales, Ambers, Belgian Beers, Sours and more, so there is plenty for you to sample no matter what your personal taste may be.

Entertainment for All

We should remind you that must be 21 years old or more to attend this event, and the organizers advise that you have you ID ready to prove it in order that they can process the line at the entry point efficiently. This is a popular event, so expect a short wait when you get to enter.

In addition to the craft beer tasting, you will also be able to meet many of the brewers and learn about their craft, which is an interesting introduction to brewing. You will find crowds at the beer tents, but be patient and you’ll enjoy the day.

In fact, you can also enjoy live music at the Alabama Craft Beer Festival, so there is something to enjoy while you wait! You can choose between standard entry and a VIP entry ticket – the latter of which comes with a grab bag including a t-shirt and a invitation to the VIP Lunch – and whichever you choose, be sure to book early to avoid disappointment!

Sugaring Self-Care

Sugaring Self-Care When was the last time you did something for yourself? If you’re like many busy ladies, it’s probably been awhile. Still, self-care is important not only for your physical health, but for your mental and emotional well-being. An act of self-care can be something as simple as taking the time to trim and file your nails, or it can be as extravagant as going to get your hair done at your favorite salon. Now, think about how much time you spend shaving on a weekly basis. Wouldn’t it be nice to get some of that time back while still being able to enjoy silky smooth skin? With sugaring, you can say “goodbye” to shaving for good; sugaring hair removal involves the use of a gentle and exfoliating sugar-based paste that not only removes hair, but cleans the follicle of debris while conditioning and exfoliating the skin. The end result is smooth, radiant skin with minimal discomfort or risk of ingrown hair. If you’re looking for a new way to practice self-care, consider giving sugaring hair removal a try for yourself. Frequent sugaring weakens the hair follicle and reduces hair growth, keeping that skin glowing for days! Think of how much time you’ll save in your daily routine. That’s time you can use to do things you truly enjoy, like getting ready for your next vacation or hitting the gym.   Stop sacrificing your time for traditional shaving! Get sugared and see the difference for yourself. We’re sure you’ll never want to go back to your razor! And of course, pampering yourself with a sugaring appointment is a great way to exercise some much deserved self-care.

Here Comes the Downtown Plano August Art and Wine Walk : Sideshow

The city of Plano, Texas is one that keeps a low profile, yet it’s also one you should definitely visit – especially if you enjoy art and wine! For many people, art and wine go together well, and they certainly do in Plano. Here, a local magazine – Plano! – came up with an idea a few years ago of organising an ‘art and wine walk’ on a regular basis through the city. The Downtown Plano Art and Wine Walk is now a well-subscribed event that is in its 4th year. You can enjoy a guided walk every month from April to December. If you want to get on board for the August event, you can book tickets online at this link, and we recommend you do so quickly as these excellent events may sell out fast. What can you expect when you take part in the Plano Art and Wine Walk? Put simply, good fun, good company, good wine and enjoyable art!

Various Locations

The walks are planned to take in the very best of Plano’s social scene, as well as the best of its wine, and you can expect a thoroughly enjoyable, entertaining and informative evening. Each month’s walk has a theme, and the upcoming walk – which takes place on the 8th of August – has the theme ‘Sideshow’; you’ll need to dig deeper to find out more! The evening begins at 5pm at a well-known Plano venue event 1013, where you will be given a commemorative glass, plus your tasting card and wine guide. When they say ‘walk’ do bear in mind that while there is some walking from venue to venue involved, there are also around 20 stops each month to sample different wines! While on the walk, participants fill in their tasting cards as they go, which is a great way of remembering the wines you appreciated, and you’ll also enjoy some venues with live music, fine local art, and if you wish, some shopping along the way. It’s a great evening out, and you’ll surely make new wine and art-loving friends!

Evening Raffle and After-Party

The walk finishes officially at 9.15pm when walkers gather in the McCall Plaza. Here, you hand in your card to enter a raffle, which features some great prizes! Once the raffle has been drawn, you are free to join the after-party at Hub Street, a popular sports bar and restaurant, where the fun continues with good wine and other drinks available at sensible prices, as well as Plano Art and Wine Walk merchandise. The Art and Wine Walk is, as we have said, not only a great way of meeting new like-minded people – so excellent if you’re new to the area – but is also an educational walk around the city, taking in some of the best bars and entertainment in Plano. Remember to get in early for your tickets, it’s really not expensive at $15 dollars for an evening out if you book in advance!

Running in the Porters Half Marathon in Draper City Park This Year? Don’t Forget to Sugar First!

Running a half-marathon takes a lot of preparation, but it is also an achievement that will give you great pride and satisfaction when completed. The clock may be timing you but for most competitors in these fun events, the thrill is in completing the course. There are many half-marathons run in various cities across the USA – and indeed the world – but one of the most popular in our area is the Porter’s Half Marathon. porters half marathon at the historic draper city park Taking place annually in Draper Park, the Porter’s Half Marathon attracts a healthy entry across all levels of experience each year, and is also well-attended  by spectators. The 2019 event takes place on August 17th, and you still have time to get an entry in if you’re quick.

What’s Sugaring Got to Do With a Half-Marathon?

It’s a good question, but bear with us and you might get the idea! First, what is sugaring? Sugaring – or sugar waxing – is fast becoming the most popular method for removing body hair. It’s not new though. Sugar waxing has been around since 1900BC, so it’s a proven method! What makes it special? Sugaring uses a paste that is applied to the area where the unwanted hair is. The paste, when ready, is removed and the hair comes with it. Unlike waxing, none of your living skin cells will come off – just the hair and dead skin cells – so you will hopefully feel less pain while benefiting from exfoliation. That’s sugaring in a nutshell, but again, what has that got to do with the Porter’s Half Marathon? Many runners – both men and women – shave their legs and perhaps arms before they set out on a run. We looked into whether this gave them a competitive advantage. It would appear that it may do so, but perhaps only psychologically! Many men, when asked why the shave their legs before a race, said that it was more comfortable. Others said gravel wounds heal quicker without hair – this is actually true – and bandages and compression  garments are easier to get on and off. Others were honest enough to admit they simply wanted to show off their legs, and attract a potential partner! Whatever your reasons, we are suggesting sugaring as the best, quickest and least painful method of removing that hair that you don’t want on display for the half marathon. So, check out local sugaring salons and they’ll be happy to help.

The Fun of the Run

Apart from all the above, do remember that a half-marathon – while not a simple event – is meant to be fun. You don’t have to be an expert or even experienced runner to attempt the distance if you train correctly. Just find someone who can help you put a good training regime into place and stick with it. Of course, if you’re just thinking about this now you’re too late for the Porter’s Half Marathon in Draper Park, but for those who are running, good luck, and have fun!
