Just curious, why is this not held on the three day weekend we have right before?

Iím guessing itís because the people planning the event are neither government employees nor employees of government contractors, so Presidentís Day is kind of just a myth. Itís a day when most people run their American flags up the pole (if they remember) before heading off to work.

Thatís just a guess from a guy who works in the service industry and doesnít have kids who will be missing school the previous Monday... and had nothing to do with the proposal.

Well I just spent 2 hours entering all the craft beer bars that are now in Jax that werenít in the database. That one area around King St is a beast. Holy cow- I hope they have a bit of variety when we get there.

One brewery usually has 6+ the other 8+. Both are probably going to do a special release for RBWG-JAX.

For those interested in spending more time at one or the other they are less than 1/4 mile apart, less than a 5 minute walk or for people that can do a 4.0 40...
