New Good People brew debuts at Harvest Brew

The post title pretty much tells the story. 9 Numbers is reporting that Good People Brewing Company will be introducing an Oatmeal Stout tomorrow evening at Homewood’s Harvest Brew event. Tria Market’s blog has all of the pertinent information on this Oktoberfest celebration beginning at 5 p.m.According to the 9 Numbers post, it’s a limited release, so if you don’t get it tomorrow, you’ll want to get on over to the J. Clyde and Five Points Grill next week.

While we’re at it, the folks at Good People are asking folks to become fans of their page on Facebook instead of becoming friends with their profile.

Lights dim on The Anchorage

Full house at the Anchorage on it's last day in business on TwitPicJust a reminder that today’s the last day for The Anchorage in downtown Homewood. While it has been reported that the restaurant was closing at the end of October, the lease expired on September 1. Rumors of a relocation to Edgewood are said to be not true, so if you want to enjoy it one last time, today’s apparently the day. Some folks are sharing their feelings about the decsion in their own way

We headed over to Homewood’s Central Park early this morning (approximately 7 a.m.) to get this photo – probably one of the last of the skate park ramps before they were disassembled today (al.com video) following last night’s vote by the city’s Parks and Recreation Board to take them down because of increased issues.

What do you think?
