Categories: Weekend Guide

Ommegang Brewery
Drink in the fire and blood.
On Sunday, Game of Thrones returns. After last season's bloodbath, frankly we'll need a little liquid courage before we turn on the telly. Thankfully, Ommegang Brewery has timed the release of its newest Game of Thrones-inspired creation with the season premiere.

It's the new Fire and Blood Red Ale and you have to try it before it's all gone. Luckily there's a release party this weekend.

In case you're wondering how the one percent live, you can sample caviar or dine on gold-plated confections -- or just run for the bacon.

Lots to do... party starts now!

Obsessed with Lannisters and dragons? Come out to OTC tonight, April 4 for the official release of the newest Game of Thrones craft beer. Ommegang's Fire and Blood Red Ale will be tapped at 6 p.m. and chef Jacob Anaya will pair the brew with some worthy happy hour snacks.

Run for the Bacon
We know the feeling. You keep saying you need to get out and exercise, maybe go for a run, but then something compelling a Two and a Half Men Marathon on TV and you just get sidetracked. What would get you out of the house and into the fresh air? How about the scent of bacon?

Then you need to look into the Great American Bacon Race, taking place Saturday, April 5 at Oleta River State Park. At 8 a.m., you'll run a 5K. With bacon on the course. When you're done, you'll get a bacon-themed medal -- and bacon beer. Sound awesome? You bet your sweet sausage, it is! Race entry is $35 bucks and there's a bacon-themed food truck roundup at the finish line.Register at
