BEER NEWS

Not local news but important Wold Cup news for all my footie fans out there.

DC Council approves measure allowing bars to stay open 24 hours during World Cup – WTOP

D.C. Council passed an emergency measure to allow bars, restaurants and breweries in the District to stay open 24 hours a day during the World Cup, which will take place from Nov. 20 to Dec. 18 in Qatar.

Places that sell alcohol normally would close at 2 a.m. on weekdays and at 3 a.m. on weekends.

Now they will be able to sell booze until 4 a.m. and remain open 24 hours, but they would have to pause their alcohol service between 4 a.m. and 6 a.m.

COTU Gingerbread House Contest
December 2-4th

I have memories of building gingerbread houses that were complete nightmare fuel. Slanted walls, coated in frosting with random half-eaten candy dispersed throughout. Do better than me and you could win an evening at King’s Dominion.

Time: During regular taproom Hours
Cost: $20 and includes a pre-assembled gingerbread house and access to additional candy decorations. Houses can be purchased upon arrival, while supplies last.

Gilles Creek Goat Was Goatnapped

Currently there is a fundraiser to fund will help recover Mary, a goat stolen from the park recently, and install a security system to protect the remaining community goats.

Details from the GoFundMe

Thank you for considering donating to our cause! This fund will help recover Mary, a goat stolen from the park recently, and install a security system to protect the remaining community goats. The details of Mary’s abduction are below:

Mary was seen tied up in the back of the suspect’s white/silver lifted Chevy truck on November 22, 2022, at approximately 8:30 pm by a bystander leaving the Gillies Creek Disc Golf Course. Two men, over 30, were in the pens kidnapping Anne, another one of the goats. The good samaritan spooked the suspects, and they abandoned their efforts to steal Anne, escaping with Mary in the bed of their truck. Two men were in the truck, ready to drive the suspects away, for a total of 4 men perpetrating this crime. We hope to recover her safely and unharmed.

Gillies Creek Park is a community park run by a non-profit. The goats are on this property for community engagement and enjoyment; it saddens us that a situation like this has happened.
