News Report…

by agirlandhermutt on October 6, 2011

Ok, so I have some good news and some not so good news. Lets start with the good news. Everyone always wants to hear positive things first, right?

Good news: I saw The League LIVE last night at The Wilbur Theatre.

 Not familiar with The League? It’s a tv show about a group of friends who are in a fantasy football league together. Its on FX and has the whole Its Always Sunny in Philly vibe. I love this show and it literally makes my sides hurt from laughing on each episode.

One of my favorites, Nick Kroll, is part of the show and he was part of the live show last night too. Nick=Hilarious and oh so cute.

The show last night started with four of the stars coming out to chat and just get the show going. Clips from the new season were next (premiers tonight!) and then each of the guys came out to do his own comedy set. They were all great, but Nick was a standout for me.

Before the show The Scientist and I met up to grab some dinnah and drinks. We met up at Rock Bottom Brewery, a place we tried when we first met.

I did a little investigation of the nutritional value of the menu before I went and eek…there were few things I was craving after that. Wowzas. I decided the best bet was to drink most of my meal. Rock Bottom makes their own beers and I was happy to judge them.


Chicken & Artichoke Soup w/ a nice side salad and a crap load of beer tasters.


The beers I tried included a Kolsch, Belgian White Ale, Red Ale, IPA, Special Dark, Rocktoberfest, and a Saison.

The winners for the night were the IPA and Saison. Both were refreshing with a  slight floral taste. Two thumbs up.

 The whole night was a blast and a great evening out in the middle of the week. Definitely give the show a try tonight and be prepared to laugh!

In other good news: I am down 5.2 lbs more this week. I know, right?! The past few weeks I have been really diligent about tracking what I’m eating and drinking TONS of water. The exercise hasn’t been as frequent as I would like, but it will come.  I’ve also managed to really balance my diligent tracking with some fun. I’ve enjoyed a few beer tastings (tastings instead of gulpings?!) and indulged in some great food. No guilty conscience here. 🙂

Ok, now for the not so good news…

There is no bad news! I’m down 5.2 lbs, I saw The League last night and its Thursday! How could I complain about any of that?! I just always wanted to say I have Good News and Bad News.

Have a great day kids!

What is your favorite tv show of all time?

Hi Erin- I just found your blog and can’t wait to read it! I married a Boston guy- so I’m a Boston lover by default.
Congrats on the weight loss- especially when beer was involved!

And I’m going to answer the question you posted: I don’t know if I can pick one fave show of all time, but my top 3 would be Six Feet Under, My So-Called Life and Felicity. 🙂

You stinker! I was worried you had to sleep with a contraption on your head now! CONGRATS on the 5 lbs. That is awesome! I hope to share that story soon myself! I went to the Dr. yesterday and she actually wrote me a prescription for a appetite suppressant sp? So hopefully that will help! My goal, more exercise, less beer! 🙂
