Spring 2006 sports ‘n’ beer events from Rick and Jeff tours: Horses, golf and the Cubbies.
Jeff “Professor” Gesser’s namesake BBC (St. Matthews) strong ale ran out on Friday, and coincidentally, the man himself stopped in shortly thereafter to make us aware of the spring slate of activities offered by his Rick and Jeff Tours.
Ask anyone who’s gone along for the ride, the Curmudgeon included, and you’ll be told that these sports-themed excursions are well-organized, great fun, and always incorporate craft beer from Louisville-area breweries.
We have some spring and summer events that may interest you:
April 23 (Sunday) … Spring Keeneland Trip.
Includes barbecue, beer, reserved seats, fun, and transportation. This the seventh year in a row and it’s always a great time. Cost is $55.
June 4 (Sunday) … Pubfest Golf Scramble.
12:00 noon at the Old Capitol Golf Club in Corydon, Indiana. It is a great course! The cost is $65 includes prizes, beverages & cookout.
July 14, 15, and 16 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) … Weekend at Wrigley Field and Chicago.
We have been trying for four years to get tickets, and finally we succeeded. It’ll be the Cubs vs. the New York Mets:
Tickets for the Friday game (1:20 pm) are in section 211.
Take Saturday off to enjoy Chicago.
Sunday tickets (5:05 pm) are in section 229.
This trip includes two nights in downtown Chicago at the Homewood Hilton Suite. The bus leaves Friday morning at 6:00 a.m. Lunch is provided on the way, and of course beer and soft drinks will be provided for the entire weekend.
Cost is $425 per person based on double occupancy. Rates drop for three and four to a room.
We have received tremendous interest in this trip, so reservations are a must! $150 Deposits are due by May 15.
