A New Red Dead Gameplay Trailer Today!

Drink Beer, Do Good.
…three very interesting beer tweets the showed up on my Twitter timeline yesterday. First, an alternate take on Ontario’s Buck A Beer program.
My ode to #BuckABeer, a thread: If you want to understand the divide between the “elite” and the “folks,” look no further than to the responses to today’s announcement (or since the election, you choose). #onpoli— Chris Chapin (@thechrischapin) August 7, 2018

And finally, my buddy Don Tse, who’s about to drink his 20,000th beer, and has found a way to turn that into a charitable endeavour, too. What a beaut. You should drink a beer with Don.
Do you like beer? Do you like food? Do you like supporting charity? Come to my 20,000th beer celebration @PigandDuke on August 18! All proceeds to Providence Children's Centres, a preschool for children with special needs. Plus, beer! And food! https://t.co/wrBzJdpDTW— Don Tse (@TheDonOfBeer) August 2, 2018
For all of August, $1 from every pint @PigandDuke Downtown from @villagebrewery, @annexales, @BandedPeak_Brew, @lastbestbrew and @ToolShedBeer will go to Providence Children's Centre as part of my "20,000 Beers Into the Tse" event. With matching donation, that's $2 to charity! pic.twitter.com/eFwT41cWpa— Don Tse (@TheDonOfBeer) August 8, 2018
