The Iron Hill Shuffle Kerfuffle
One thing I'll miss after the upcoming Iron Hill Shuffle is the occasional crossing of paths that I would have with Chris LaPierre. It's more than just a happy consolation that West Chester now gets Larry Horwitz from the North Wales location (and Vince Desrosiers is getting the bump at North Wales from Media), but the chance to share beers with Chris at IH West Chester, or Flying Pig in Malvern, or The Drafting Room in Exton, or TJs in Paoli, or Teresa's Next Door in Wayne, or, or, or anywhere else along the line home to Philadelphia just won't be the same once he crosses the river to the Jersey side (apologies to The Boss). Jean Broillet will still be wielding a mash paddle in West Chester alongside Larry...which reminds me of a special beer from Jean that I must consume very soon. Anyways, there's a little going away slash welcoming party for Chris and Larry, respectively, tomorrow night and it would behoove all better beer lovers to be in attendance for what should be a smashing night, yes smashing. If you miss it, you'll just need to listen to me retell it in all my intricately woven verbosity.
