Celebrating Gord's birthday

Gord and I celebrated his birthday today by going to the Elmwood Spa.

We hung out in the hot tub ... then the pool ... then the hot tub ... then had a couples massage (Rich focused on my back and arms) ... then went back to the hot tub. Yes!

We ended up at Smokeless Joe's and I treated Gord to some Deus Brut des Flandres ... a champagne-style beer that was $51.25 for a 750ml bottle and is 11.5% (it's the second on this list).

Here's Eddie, our bartender, getting ready to pour it for us.

It's poured into a champagne flute.

It was tasty. Had I been blindfolded, I never would have known that it was beer. It felt like champagne but didn't taste like it. It was a different taste ... but good.

Chia Kitty liked it too!
