Chicago Mardi Gras/Valentine's Beer Events, February 12-15
A beer-centric Valentine from The Craft Beer Girl.

So what's going on this week in the beer world?

Tuesday is Shrove Tuesday, also known as Mardi Gras, Panckae Day and Pączki Day. For some of us, a last chance to indulge, or to pair beer with sugary pastries.

Wednesday is Valentine's Day, so we have plenty of romantic beer dinners, or at least Valentine's specials at places known for good beer.

Saturday is the Cider Summit at Navy Pier, so several cider makers are already in town for what they're calling Chicago Cider Week.

Geek Stuff: Google just pushed an "update" to their Calendar feature which affected my ability to work with it. No longer can I use the FoxReplace AddOn for Firefox to wrap web addresses around brewer names. Now the Calendar event window has an Editing toolbar which I hve to use "by hand" to add links. Well, we should be able to work this one out.
