Beer fest in flagstaff and the regular domestic disaster before moving

N got tickets to beer fest through his work and was super excited to go. He is afterall a beer lover/ homebrewer so this event was right up his alley. Me, I am not a fan of beer but I figured getting out of the house and having some alcohol might not be a bad idea. We headed to beer fest at about 4pm yesterday after a super productive morning and afternoon.

The thing about this town is that people are just "different" here. At bars and similar community events people just dress up like it is halloween, maybe I am just out of the loop or something but I think dressing up randomly is kind of odd.

Anyway, people were out dispite the rain. They were dressed in their oddest outfits and ready for some free booze. I figured I would have a little beer and some fun people watching. Here is what I saw:

As you can see, the people watching was very entertaining. We had all sorts of fashion statements going on and I had my trusty camera ready for it all!

I even found a beer I liked at Flagstaff’s made in the shade beer fest 2008! It was Lindeman’s Apple beer, yum! It tasted just like ripe green apples! I need to get me some of this beer for home!

Now, here comes the domestic disaster part of the post. Before I go on I want to point out that we seem to have these disasters before moving… It is like the house is already in chaios so what they heck? Last time we were preparing for a move our stove caught fire, go read it about it…

Are you back now? So our stove didn’t catch fire this time, our kitchen flooded! On friday a contractor came out and worked under our craw space, I guess during the home inspection (remember our rental house sold) they spotted some issue with the plumming or drain that needed to be fixed before the house could close.

So the guy came out to work under the house, there was much banging and then he left. The next day we are showering and then we go out to run errands. Late Saturday night while we are watching p.s. I love you N notices that the kitchen is flooded… He thinks something they worked on is backed up. We still have no idea why or how it flooded, the pipes under the sink are oozing water from the joints- that is all I know. We called the rental office and apparently their emergency maitnence is not as quick or helpful as previous places we have rented, since they still have not returned our call.

  1. The guy in the third pic with the red shorts/suspenders was in costume for a german beerfest.. kudos to him – but the guy in that last pic should have thrown those pants away!! I saw the same “halloween” clothes at the Guitar Hero Tournament and kept asking myself – “what WERE they thinking!!?!”

    Sorry about the flooding and no emergency response from the rental office……… I hope the water didn’t reach any of your boxes.

  2. The beer fest looks like it was fun – for people watching and for drinking! LOL. As for the flooding, that is odd but seems like the guy in the crawlspace may have banged something loose? I hope that rental office gets back to you before too much damage is done. Sheesh.

    Yesterday we called the landlords cell phone about the flooding and someone was sent out to have a look at it. They said the joints in the kitchen sink area were banged loose… Strange.
