Thursday before Great Taste 2018 - Batavia drinking
« on: July 19, 2018, 12:57:12 PM »
The time is upon us again.  I would like to open the porch at my folks house to festivities of drinking.  This is not exclusive for those going to Great Taste, but we do need to make sure that the entire suburbs don't show up.  If you are interested in joining in and sharing some good times and good beers, please let me know as a response in this thread.  My folks live near-enough to the High School in Batavia you can use it as a reference point to see if it would work for you and your travels.

Anyone ever heard of/been to Lodi Tap House in Maple Park, IL?

Appears to be 20ish minutes west of Batavia, just past Ream's in Elburn. Hmmm...

Reuben looks legit.

Heard of it. Never went. Seemed like a nice option for those that live out that way, but never enticed me enough to take the extra time to drive there.

Yeah, seems just a little too far out there. Figured I might swing by on the way to Brac's, or just forget about it.

Gammon Coach House in Batavia would scratch that itch if you've never been.  Pretty similar I'm guessing, and saves you the extra driving.  Unless you were planning on going to Ream's.

I am sure we will be stopping at Burger Antics on the way into town Thursday pre-BJC. Mrs OHL will be very happy when she sees their new Burger of the Month.

Yes, it's in a bigger spot that is further south from the old one. Just an FYI, they close at 6pm.

Looks like we're coming up Wednesday next week.  Not sure of stops on the way but likely Hailstormand Open Bottle since they are spitting distance from the highway.  We have all day Thursday as well, so might do a little brewery hopping...maybe even jump into the city.  I'm bringing a virgin sacrifice, so he will need proper treatment.

I'd be down for this, let me know :thumbup:

Just the usual deflowering, or ritual heart extraction? :mellow:

I think I'm going to come up for this.  What's the plan for first stop on Thursday?  Might meet up there or at your parent's place.  I'll be sober so I can drive.

As long as I wind up near the CTA or a Metra stop, i'd be down for whatever that day. :unsure:

There is no plan yet.  I wanted to give things a little time to see if folks had suggestions on what to do or where to meet.  As of now this is a pretty relaxed and easy day of going where the wind takes us.  I'm happy to plan more solid stuff if that is needed.

What time would you be able to be at my folks on Thursday, if you're still thinking about coming up.

Tell me when and I'll make it happen.  Something like 8 am would be doable for me, I'm an early riser.

If you’re looking for city ideas, Maplewood is releasing Roger’s first beer since he moved from Corridor. Arguably makes the city’s best hazys :ale:
