So Pokémon Go happened this week. I still have no idea what’s going on, but what’s new. I’m trying to equate it to Untappd. Looks like in Pokémon Go, people run around catching imaginary creatures. With Untappd, people run around chasing #waelzbro. Got it. From there, you collect and train your creatures to obtain bragging rights for your team at the gym. With Untappd, you collect merit badges, ticks and check-ins for bragging rights to your beer friends. Am I off? Help me out here so I can play with my kids.
At any rate, good luck out there. Have fun and be safe.
In other news, it’s hot and getting hotter, but we’ve got some great happenings to get you hydrated and cool you down for the weekend.
Let’s do this.
