I know, I know! Drinking alcohol while studying is not something I should necessarily be promoting, and before your get the impression that I'm one of those lightning-liquid-learning lushes, I rarely do this. I am, however, in my last Undergraduate semester at UC Berkeley, writing and shooting for TWO Senior film theses, and in general need to reduce my stress. So...here goes: I will have a Happy Hour beverage at a favorite local cafe Local 123 AND do some homework AND be productive darn it! I wrote this blog after all didn't I? In order to compensate for my digression, as soon as I publish this post I will be researching scholarly articles on the effect that social media has had on human interactions, especially regarding food consumption and restaurants (think "pop-up" restaurants, food trucks, the resurgence of farmers markets, etc.). But for now, I just want to share with you all the tasty beer that I sampled: Drake's 1500 Pale Ale. Clean, not too hoppy, medium alcohol (5.5%), and perfect for an early evening of putting my nose to the grind stone. Happy homeworking!
