Charleston, SC.
Food, Booze, and the path of totality.  Or, you know, rain.

I was dating a young lady from Roanoke a few years back and we did a beer bus thing that was kind of fun. None of the breweries were fantastic but Flying Mouse was definitely the best. Very family friendly too, roasting marshmallows and whatnot outside. It's probably 25 minutes outside of Roanoke proper, though.

The downtown brewery we started at was pretty Ok but I'd have to research the name for you tomorrow.

...my wife got me some leftovers from her company party :(

So thinking of making a overnight in Roanoke ...what's the beer scene there
I know Deschutes and Ballast Point are close...but would rather find a cool local brewery

Or is there a better beer related pit stop on the way to Asheville.

and on the asheville topic...I know wicked weed is all corp now, I still am going to check it out
any recommendations on 2 other breweries to hit
Burial was on the list, but looking for suggestions (also, kid friendly would help)

We overnighted in Roanoke when we did Asheville for Spring Break. Didn't hit any breweries, though Parkway in Salem was on the radar. Depending on your route, Appalachian Mountain Brewing in Boone and Fonta Flora in Morganton are highly recommended.

If you go to Wicked Weed, Funkatorium has a much cooler vibe than the main Wicked Weed. But if you insist on going to the main Wicked Weed, the basement (I think it opens after 2 or 3 or something) is the place to go for the best beer.

My favorite kid-friendly brewery we went to in Asheville was actually New Belgium. They have a slide on the tour, just like in Ft Collins. They have a huge lawn where the kids can roam, play frisbee, or whatever. Good food trucks. Dogs everywhere. Free craft soda (or was it juice?) on tap for the kids. Generous samples, including La Folie, on the free tour (and unlike Sierra Nevada, you don't have to sign up months in advance to score a spot on the tour). Pleasant river view. Also, check out White Duck Taco for casual eats and Curate for a more fancy meal.

pro-Trmp MOTHER OF ALL RALLIES on the Natl Mall on same day as ICP's Juggalos gathering!
That's a real Sophie's Choice for shitheads.
Sounds like we need to send Julian then!

Most of you, are forgetting, that when this was organized, ICP stated that they were also going to do a free concert at Nissan on the same day. That's, where you send Julian.

Since Smackie doesn't seem interested in playing principal donor again, it could be difficult.
well it's free...we'd cover the intoxicants...

and last I checked you weren't the chief of communications for the Empire Du Smack
I require money going to charity if I'm going to do these things.

Not speaking for Smackie, just reiterating what he said the last time something wasn't proposed.

Thanks GGW, but all the libraries are out and A&S is quite difficult
haven't tried the zoo...but kind of a PIA to deal with

I'd be willing to pay, but no one has them in stock

need to follow up on Warby Parker
