I'm trying the local brewery tonight. It's in a crowded downtown area, which is scary for me. The beer is good, my favorite local band is playing...we'll see. The crowd's way too young...meh.

What I'm trying to say is...you can do this

After enough beer you won't even notice the crowd.

Excited for you. Also, there are some really great breweries near you, so I'm jealous!

Don’t get to the end of your life and find that you lived only the length of it; live the width of it as well.
