Ho-lee Heck-balls, folks, we unexpectedly got a wee bit tanked on this episode, thanks first to over-strong pours of a mixed drink we’d never had before, and then doubly again due to DXG’s surprise addition of some soon-to-be-gone-forever Bridgeport beers. It’s a bit of a wild ride! We had a lot of fun with this one, and despite some meandering along tangents at times, it was a joyous occasion, and we hope you enjoy listening.
In our Bike Talk segment, we talk about a number of big rides coming up this month and the following, as the PNW thaw sets in and a lot of us roll out bikes back out of the garage. In our Game Talk segment, we take a deeper look at what you can expect from the upcoming Gamestorm convention here in Portland, OR. In our Bar Talk segment, we discuss the great rash of recent brewery closures here in Portland and the surrounding area, and lament the loss of some of our favorites. Finally, Xander and Linsel chime in with some additional commentary on two-player gaming, from our previous episode.
And stick around for bonus silliness after the outro!
