I just love that word.

Gaaaaaaal-ahhhhhh-vannnnnnn-ting. It rolls off the tongue nicely, doesn't it?

Galavanting is the perfect word to describe what John and I did yesterday. He loves a quest, and so do I. Here's his latest.

You may recall that the Bearded Dog Pub, formerly known as that big room over the garage previously used as Son's bedroom, sports a kegerator. What's a kegerator, you ask? Here's the definition as described by Wikipedia:

Kegerator is a residential draft (draught) beer dispensing device. A keg, typically of beer, is stored in a refrigerated container in order to keep the keg chilled. The user is able to maintain a tapped keg in such a device for extended periods of time, usually a couple of months, without losing any quality in the taste of the beer. A kegerator may be purchased in its finished form or built from a re-purposed refrigerator or a freezer with special equipment. A Kegerator is sometimes used in a Man cave, or more rarely, a woman cave.

I like the woman cave part. .::snort::.

Hell will freeze over before I devote any time or effort to an appliance dedicated to beer.

But it's a fun project for John. We put a sixth of a barrel in ours, which lasts for varying amounts of time depending on how often Greg and John host dart tournaments up in the pub. John takes an enormous amount of time debating the merits of various local craft breweries, and once selected, purchases a tap handle from the brewery as well.

Because the tap handle should match the keg, for cryin' out loud.

This particular keg contains Pelican Brewery Surfer's Summer Ale. Our search for the Pelican Brewery's tap conveniently shaped like a pelican was successful thanks to the obliging staff. We took the scenic route home feeling quite smug.

Overall a very relaxing day spent leisurely driving with the hubs. Brilliant.
