BeerTech Spring Cook-Out
So by now you've got a pretty good idea that BeerTech is about some guys who are car nuts. And being nuts doesn't make us great drivers. But it's something we are passionate about.
But there's more to BeerTech than cars. There's also Go Karts... and food... and Beer.
A few weeks ago we had our 1st Annual Spring BeerTech Cook-Out.
We wanted to do something to celebrate my 40th and the fact that Rob and Brook had just run off and gotten married.
It was a full day of fun. We started the day with the Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez double feature... GRIND HOUSE. Sure it won't win any academy awards but it was an all out perfect guys flick. Fast cars, girls with guns, pocket bikes and lots of explosions. Quentin's move could have been 15 minutes shorter... But I digress.
If you want a review of the movie? Google "Grind House, review"... but I wouldn't trust anything you read on the internet.
Promptly following the movie, we headed to Greensboro's finest new attraction... the indoor Go Cart track (Greensboro Grand Prix). We didn't set any track records... but we had fun and gave the guys in the supposedly faster super carts a run for their money.
By know your asking... where's the cook-out? Well that's what we did after the go carting.
We headed to my house, where we met up with our better halves.
While we were doing our thing... the girls had been off getting manicures and stuff.
While the food cooked on the grill, the guys spent the evening out the garage talking cars and stuff. We all had just the right amount of food and adult beverage. At some point however, we decided to pay a quick visit to our favorite bar, Fishbones.
Rob and Brook left the group at this point to go and enjoy there BeerTech Honeymoon at the O'Henry. While the rest of us head back to my place to catch the late night viewing of the F1 race live from somewhere halfway around the world. I think some red car won?
So there's more to BeerTech than Cars, Go Karts, Food, and Beer... there's good times and good friends.
