Chicago Craft Beer Weekend, September 28-30
1953 German Oktoberfest Postcard

Another busy weekend in beer coming up. I've to pare down slightly by dropping a few events that were sold out. But I've still got a lot of local Oktoberfest and other events.

Block Club Chicago is reporting that Empirical Brewing's brewpub on Morse Avenue is in need of outside investment, or it may face closure. However, Empirical's original brewery and tap room in Ravenswood would not be affected. This comes, though, after Two Brothers closed their tap room in Oak Park.

Geekage: I finally took care of a small issue that annoyed me at a typesetter: seeing phone number break across lines in the event's locations. It was a matter of breaking up the address into two part so I could put a "<nowrap>" tag around the phone number and the globe icon that lets you go to a Google Map of the location. And I also got to rewrite the code to better handle events at different locations, putting a "globe" at each. Makes me feel like a real coder!
