Skipped the Santa Cruz clam chowder festival this afternoon because, though I like chowder, I didn't wish to face the heavy crowds, or to devote that much time.
Skipped one celebratory party this evening in favor of another to which we'd already accepted the invitation. Celebrated host likes unusual beers. All right, so I brought him a six-pack of bottles of assorted beers, one each from Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. Unusual enough for you? Shared out in sips among the party-goers, the Polish beer went well, or so much I gathered.
