It’s been a while since I posted a roundup of my favorites, so I hope you’ll indulge me for a moment. Better yet, I hope you find something here to like too!
When I saw New Belgium’s Coconut Curry Hefeweizen on the menu at a bar/restaurant the crowd I run with frequents, I just about had an excitement attack. I love coconut- curry anything and I love beer, so I was smitten at first sight. Not so sure about the combo in a beverage? Try this recipe for coconut curry popcorn seasoning instead.
I would have liked to offer you a picture of the actual beverage (instead of its label), but I thought it unwise to open a bottle when taking photos at 10 a.m. They may be lax, but even I have standards (

Last but not least, this song. A few months ago, my friend Melina posted this video on her Facebook page. I listened to the song, thought it was catchy, and moved on. Then I read this interview and heard it on the radio within a 24-hour time span, so I thought it was time to share.
The tune is not only catchy, but the lyrics make me laugh a little. I’d take the tiger on a gold leash. How about you?
