What’s Up Peekskill? Green Beer is Gross.

You might have thought it was cool when you were a teenager, but really, green beer is and always will be gross. Even more so when you’re a teenager, and you drink too much, and it all comes back up. Now that I’ve planted that lovely image in your minds, please enjoy some pie on Pi day today — you know that universal constant? Tomorrow, watch your backs! Et tu, Brute! Celebrate Pandas on Saturday, and finally, Sunday is St. Paddy’s day. It’s a great celebratory stretch starting today, so get out there my fellow P-Rockers, and shake it! I know you got it!

Just remember: please drink green beer responsibly by not drinking it.

What’s Up Peekskill?

So the icy cold don’t stick your tongue on the metal pipe weather is gone, and this spring-like warmth will be gone shortly too. Back to typical cold but not too cold weather. So whether (see what I did there?) you’re bummed out or happy about it, get downtown and wave your hands in the air like you just don’t care. Go build some Lego or play some board games at the library, or sing a ballad to winter at karaoke night, or just enjoy some live music at your favorite watering hole. What ever you do, P-rock it.
