Beer Tasting/Game night.

  • January 25, 2014 · 3:00 PM
  • Andrew's House

Sorry, unfortunately the weather makes it unsafe to plunge for tomorrow.  We're adjusting this to a Michigan Craft Beer Tasting.  Bring your favorite 6 pack of craft beer (or two large beers if they don't come in a 6 pack).  We'll open two or three and sample them and vote.  The beer that wins will win a bunch of beer, the beer that comes in 2nd will win a bunch of beer, and the person that comes in 3rd will win some beer.

**YOUR PROFILE MUST BE FILLED OUT TO ATTEND THIS EVENT.  BY ATTENDING THIS EVENT, YOU ASSUME ALL RISK IN JUMPING INTO A FROZEN LAKE AND ARE AWARE THAT IT IS DANGEROUS AND COULD CAUSE INJURY, DEATH, FROSTBITE, OR YOUR VOICE PITCH TO INCREASE BY A LARGE MARGIN.  YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK AND TAKE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANYTHING GOOD OR BAD THAT MAY HAPPEN TO YOU.

Guests are not permitted, if you'd like to bring someone, they must join the adventure club and sign up on their own with their own account.

See you there!

After the plunge will either play games or put a movie on.  Which could then lead to a night plunge!

    Jim and I are probably the only people happy that this will be rescheduled! Looks like I'm not going to be able to make it after all. Looking forward to seeing a make up date though!

    No polar bear plunge?! Darn. Please reschedule one soon.

  • Randy K.

    I take it the potluck is still on thou? Ill make cheesy potatoes and arrive later in the afternoon then.

    January 24, 2014

    • Andrew

      Potluck is still on, please bring a dish to pass

    I've just checked the weather, and unfortunately with 20 mph winds, and wind chill at -4, I don't think it is safe to plunge, so I won't be cutting a hole in the ice. I'll reschedule this for another time. This is now converted to a Michigan Beer Tasting Party.

    • Dylan C.

      Why don't we ever have wind chill in the summer? I'll still make Mattar Paneer.

      January 24, 2014

    • Brian N

      I understand. Kind of bummed though. Still good times to be had.

      January 24, 2014

  • Dylan C.

    So everyone doesn't bring the same thing, I'm making delicious Mattar Paneer (Indian peas and cheese).

    January 24, 2014

  • Andrew

    Please post if you can bring an outdoor extension cord, the longer the better

    January 24, 2014

    • Dylan C.

      I'll bring one, and a 20" chainsaw.

      January 24, 2014

  • Joshua D R.

    Is this the type of event that you stay over for the night. Only reason i ask is due to the two hour drive for me to get there.

    January 24, 2014

    • Lois

      I could bring some alcohol to facilitate this, lol.....

      January 24, 2014

    • Andrew

      The house is full unfortunately but The Colony Inn is at the end of the road and fairly cheap, as is the travel Lodge a couple miles away

    January 22, 2014

    • Andrew

      I would guess we will start around 6ish for games and movies.

      January 24, 2014

  • Lois

    How are we going to do the plunge if the water is all frozen? Is it frozen?

    January 24, 2014

    • Andrew

      It is frozen... Chainsaw **ARGH ARGH ARH (That was a Tim Allen Manly Grunt)

    January 22, 2014

    • Li

      I'll have my hockey gear in my car and two extra sticks if anyone else wants to play

      January 22, 2014

      January 22, 2014

    January 22, 2014

  • James S.

    Hopefully I can tick this off my bucket list! May need to chicken out if I've been up all night Friday (work, nothing fun)

    January 22, 2014

  • Jim S

    January 21, 2014

  • Brian C.

    I'll try to make it after the beer expo.

    January 15, 2014

  • AJ W.

    Never done one if these, but am stoked about it!!

    January 15, 2014

  • Brian C.

    How long will you be making the plunge? I've always wanted to do this, but i have tix for a beer expo at corner brewery at the same time. :-/

  • Robin T.

    Would you like me to bring your poker table back to use that night? Also, have you located your poker chips?

    January 13, 2014

    • Andrew

      Sure, and I found the chips.

      January 13, 2014

  • Lauren

    Since I've already plunged, I may not do it again. Looking forward to watching other folks though. :)

    January 13, 2014

  • Li

    What are the ramifications of starting a fire on the ice?
    Also, can we play broomball?

    January 12, 2014

    • Andrew

      If you have brooms and a ball, sure. The fire makes us warm after the plunge, it is elevated off the ice

      January 12, 2014

  • Colleen

    I'm a maybe for later on...school :(

    January 11, 2014

  • Brian N

    The 25th works much better. :)

    January 11, 2014

  • Andrew

    Shoot, I mistakenly posted this for the 18th, it's actually the 25th, just updated the date, please update your RSVP if you can't make it, sorry

      An entire bottle of wine was my courage.

      January 11, 2014

  • Brian N

    I'm going to try for that day if I'm still in town. Might be an in and out. :)
