I mean, if this isn't a sign that we are in for great weekend I don't know what is.

If you enjoy the malt and hop goodness of the world's most popular adult beverage then I am assuming that you probably don't really need an excuse to enjoy a frosty cold one. However, sometimes you know, you have to be responsible and do adult things that don't involve some delicious libations.

Today is not one of those times. Seriously, it's Friday afternoon, we have just about made it to quitting time, and it's National Drink Beer Day. Quite frankly today you should need an excuse not to crack open a beer.

Apparently there are a few National and International Days that celebrate the malt and hops but today, National Drink Beer Day, is a reminder to enjoy your favorite brew at your favorite pub before the Oktoberfest season comes to an end.

I feel like since this fabulous holiday falls on Friday we actually have the whole weekend to celebrate and there are no shortage of places to do so. There are quite a few shows this weekend where you can enjoy a tasty brew and listen to some live tunes and in fact there is even an Oktoberfest happening on Broadway in the Warehouse District of Albany tomorrow!

So today make sure to crack open a cold one and celebrate accordingly.
