Anyone interested in the secret to happiness? Follow the link below to my new blog at Blue Ridge Outdoors magazine, where I discuss that beautiful intersection between booze and outdoor adventure. This week, I detail the recipe for true happiness (hint: the recipe includes six beers and one bicycle). Next week, I might talk about making bloody mary’s while backpacking, or doing a keg stand between laps at a mountain bike race, or doing a pub crawl on a standup paddle board, or…you get the picture. Adventure+booze=awesome.
Check out this week’s goodness here. But don’t forget to keep checking back at Daddy Drinks, where I continue to discuss that even more precarious intersection where booze and parenthood meet. Booze+parenthood=judgmental glances from the other parents at the park.
Your so funny.
And everyone knows booze = adventure (or misadventures?)
Do you think it is more acceptable for moms to drink in the park with their kids than dads? When my kids were at that age, I started to notice the trend – that wasn’t coffee in those fancy Starbucks beverage holders.
Good question, twistnpout. I was in the park recently when the local city schools were out and a bunch of moms with older kids were there and I think I was the only one without a beer. but it’s also standard operating procedure to have a couple of beers whenever I get together with another stay at home dad for a play date with the kids. whether that behavior is “acceptable” is a question for my wife, and I can usually tell by her facial expression when she gets home and sees the empties whether or not I’ve had too many.
Yeah that is a pretty good gage.
Oh my god, what a great idea. Just stumbled across your blog, and I love it so far! Now I’m going to have to check out your other one, too. Great, more procrastination material.
