The calendar thins out a bit here at the end of May. That's easily explained, though, by the impending Philly Beer Week, which begins May 31. I won't be listing any of the scheduled events here from May 31-June 9 since there's way too many, not too mention they have a website, and an app I believe, that does its job in gathering them all together in one place. Might I put a spreadsheet together again this year, many of you have asked? Well, don't count on it, but do stay tuned just in case.
Check out the entire May 2013 calendar over here. If I'm missing any that you feel should be on here, don't hesitate to let me know.
