It’s another busy Halloween weekend. I will try to push the following calendar for the week with Halloween itself a little earlier. I am having issues (enumerated below) that keep me from having access to all the events I’ve saved, so keep watching here for updates.

And by now you’ve surely heard about Noon Whistle Brewing’s collaboration with Planters Peanuts, to brew a beer with peanuts as an ingredient. The result, “Mr. IPA-Nut”, goes on sale this weekend at Noon Whistle and then around the area (Chicago Tribune article). Now beers have been made with peanut butter before, so this is not totally unprecedented. By not trying to mix the flavor with a strong stout, maybe it won’t come out like Canfield’s Diet Peanut Fudge soda. But that used artificial flavors, not real peanuts.

In my rush to get as many interesting Halloween type events listed, I am being stymied by some glitch among the biggest “we don’t care” websites: I now find most of my events among my Facebook-friended establishment. When I “save” the event, it’s linked to a Google Calendar where I can copy and edit it to the calendar below. But half the events I “save” don’t show up on GCal. And the ones I “unsave” are still stuck to my calendar. Finding someone at either online behemoth who might actually be able explain something may take a while, considering the number of support requests still awaiting resolution on the “upgrade” to GCal from this spring.
