Day two of the Pacific Northwest Round Up began with a few of us girls heading out Saturday morning to downtown Albany for a little bead, produce & antique shopping. Funny how things go from one thing to another and we end up somewhere
else..... Like the LOCAL BREWERY! What? How'd that happen?
And where oh where is Magnolia Blossom and Cookin' Cyn. We lost them on the way somewhere.....
Me, Biker Family & Debi do a little Beer Sampling at Calapooia Brewery,
our local Beer Making Establishment and Public House.
We needed some Growlers for our Party.
Raspberry Beer anyone? It was actually very good!
Meanwhile.... back at The Grill Station
Peeps begin to arrive and Orange & Brian gear up!
MauiGirl looks at phone pics with Orange
But, wait..... we need something to drink, right?
Beer? Sangria! Wine - any kind, any flavor! Blue Meanies?
At one point MauiGirl commented that we didn't have enough alcohol!
Is that a shot of Blue Meanie in your hand Mags?
Are Avon & Magnolia Blossom drinking BM Shots. What? The?.....
Yes! I think they are! And, Sangria!
LOL! Phones! Look at everyone checking out their phone pics. Hilarious!
