What you said about what we said last week
We couldn’t provide alcohol to the people who picked up last week’s Beer Issue, but we hope it at least held them over until they could reach their nearest bar. As @nathasha tweeted, “saving for the commute home, which will be long b/c… metro.” Food Editor Jessica Sidman wrote about navigating the world of beer name trademarks, which the @BeerLawCenter called a “Good write up on a growing issue.” Attorney Kevin M. Goldberg was similarly pleased: “#Trademark & #beer? Yes please! (Really useful look at how any TM disputes really arise & play out) Well done @wcp.” Fluxgirl was amused by Aaron Morrissey’s piece on local alternatives to macro brews, especially his suggestion that Bud Light Platinum drinkers “procure a bag of Swedish Fish and a bottle of rubbing alcohol at the nearby pharmacy.” She commented, “Made me LOL!” The Beer Issue may have a “born on” date of last week, but it has no expiration, so check out the whole package here.
Ticket to Chide
The amount of disdain toward the subjects of Will Sommer’s column on the bigwigs who score sports tickets from Mayor Muriel Bowser’s office could fill a stadium. Typical DC BS commented, “Love how scumbags like Phinis Jones and David Jannarone still hang in there with this Bowwowzer crowd.” Daddy Grace Fish Sandwich agreed: “Many are ass kissers too. I am surprised I didn’t see Joshua Lopez on the list to get free tickets. He’s in both Fenty and Bowser inner circles.” Sommer’s piece was actually a come-together moment for Typical DC BS (“Nice we agree on this”) and DGSS (“Believe it or not, we agree on a lot of issues, Typical DC BS. hehe.”) Maybe they’ll take in a game together some time soon.
