Although Jose hates his job, he was actually rewarded for his hard work with something very unexpected. He won a Wii :)
Needless to say, this weekend we have been having quite a good time partaking in our new favorite past time -- we have been amused with everything from "designing" our Wii versions of ourselves to being told what our Wii fitness level is (Wii told Jose that he has the speed, strength, and stamina of a 57 year old - ouch). I destroy Jose in bowling while he kills me in tennis. We both kinda suck at golf and can barely hit the ball in baseball-- however, sometimes Jose lucks out and hits a random home run.
Throughout this particular Wii session, we are thoroughly enjoying the flavors of Goose Island's Harvest Ale (thank you, Erin and Todd!). We were given this 6-pack in exchange for our dog sitting services -- yes, we can be bought that easily. As a matter of fact, we can be bribed to do just about anything in exchange for alcohol ;)
Speaking of good beers, we went to an Oktoberfest Beer & Wine Tasting on Friday where we especially loved the Brooklyn Local 1 Ale (buying a bottle immediately after the tasting), as well as the Post Road Pumpkin Ale and Sam Adams Octoberfest. If you have any good seasonal beer recommendations, definitely let us know*
