fix the beer taxJust a short post on this rainy Thursday, but it’s great to be able to say that Tennessee’s 1950s beer tax has been fixed! The final votes for the Beer Tax Reform Act of 2013 took place on Monday in the Senate (30-1) and on Wednesday in the House (87-2). Now all it awaits is signature from Governor Haslam! Co-sponsors of the bill, Rep. Sexton (R-Crossville) and Rep. Kelsey (R-Germantown), and the folks behind Fix the Beer Tax have worked tirelessly the past couple of months and it’s great to see all that hard work and campaigning pay off on the first go around. So, cheers to that!

If you don’t have plans for the night of April 23rd, Bosco’s announced its annual Brewmasters Dinner the other day and the menu looks delicious! Nick and I went last year and we’ll be going again this year. I’m especially excited about the Wasabi shrimp entrée, and what do you know, it’s served with my favorite type of beer! Seats will fill up fast if they haven’t already, so call and reserve your spot now!

And lastly, in house news, Nick and I will start moving boxes in the last week of April and we’ll move our furniture in May 1st! I’ve got big plans for decorating our new place and Nick has already made a big purchase which will be put to good use when we have a housewarming party —  so stay tuned! Cheers!
