Living the High Life

How many special people change?
How many lives are living strange?
Where were you while we were drinking High Life?
Someday you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a champagne of beers supernova in the sky

That’s an old bocce drinking song from back in the day. We used to sing it at Quigleys (a bar that no longer exists) while drinking one dollar “grenades” or 8 oz beers of High Life.

2 Kegs

Tomorrow marks a new beginning in bocce history. For the very first time we will have not one, but two kegs of beer. That’s right, we’ve gone through the looking glass and everything on the other side is doubled.

So put on some 2 Pac music, learn the two step, and make sweet love to the Doublemint Twins because we are celebrating two kegs on Tuesday!
