Spring House Sticker Bomb

Someone decided to stick these Springhouse Brewery stickers all over Lancaster. I spent a cloudy spring afternoon walking around capturing the damage.  The route appeared to begin somewhere Springhouse Brewing’s Taproom and span out to Annie Baileys.  There were also stickers posted along Queen Street and the Central Market up to Spyro Gyro on Queen St.

Judging by the spattering of stickers I can only assume that this was the work of an unruly bunch of hoodlums wasting their time wandering the streets of Lancaster.  Most likely unemployed, non-contributing members to society, the hoodlums’  shenanigans must stop, eventually. Until then, I am cool with capturing the terror.

Cheers.

The KG, Sucka.

Who else could they get to make the party bump?

Happy Birthday America

Happy 235th Birthday America.  To celebrate, I drank beer from ”America’s Oldest Brewery’ and celebrated my grandmother’s 90th birthday party.

Even though this is a day late, there is also a nice little playlist I created to celebrate America.  Each song references our great country in its own way: some unique, others patriotic, some traditional and some actually make a mockery of America, f-ck yeah. Listen to America’s Birthday here:
