Weekend Stuff: 3/10- 3/11

This weekend was The Boy's birthday weekend, so I'd like to give an extra special shout out to The Boy!

In honor or The Boy's birthday, we went to our local IMAX  3D theater to see the newly released film, John Carter. The Boy was a huge fan of the 1912 Edgar Rice Burroughs novel that the movie is based on, "A Princess of Mars," and he's been showing me the movie trailer almost daily ever since the movie trailer was release. I'd warned The Boy that perhaps he was setting his movie expectations too high, but the movie was action packed an pretty gosh darn entertaining. I even took back my initial comments that I thought this movie might be as disappointing as Avatar (it's not). If you have an IMAX 3D theater in your town, I recommend that you check out this movie...and then start crafting your John Carter themed Halloween costumes. I call dibs on Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium!

Immediately following the film, the Boy and I met up with his co-workers at a local Old Chicago where I discovered my new love for Schlafly Biere De Garde (if my love for Schlafly continues, I may consider moving to St. Louis just for the beer. The menu described the flavor as malty, caramel-y and nutty) and I fell into like with Buster Nut Brown Ale (which had some awesome label art and was described as extra nutty and caramel-y).

What did you do this weekend? Let me know in the comments below.
