A few weeks ago “I Know Jax” ran an episode that looked back at as well as poked fun at the first year of the show’s existence. Here I have included the blooper reel of my segment. I hope you enjoy.

Join the Springfield Brew Crew and The Jax Beer guy at the inaugural Community First Saturday Downtown October 6. Join us for some traditional Oktoberfest games and contests like pretzel tossing, stein racing, and yodeling. There will also be a best lederhosen and dirndl contest. So dress the part of a German and get on downtown for some German-style fun!
The event’s press release reads:
Community First Saturday is a new monthly project to activate our beautiful River and Riverwalk, tie into events and activities Downtown, create family and fitness content that compels our community to gather on the St. Johns River, and simply enjoy our sometimes underrated quality of life in Jacksonville.
There are two central locations of Community First Saturdays.
One is on the Riverwalk behind the Times Union Center (between the two green gazebos at the south ends of Hogan and Pearl Sts). This space, dubbed Community West, will feature family friendly interactive activities, fitness classes, and excursion ideas and tours of our vibrant Downtown. Linking the biggest weekly outdoor cultural event in Florida (Riverside Arts Market) with the Riverwalk and Downtown is a priority of CFS so you’ll see many linkages both physical and programmatic. There is too much to mention in this space but there will be things like free Wi-Fi, bike valet, and we’ve got the JTA Skyway running! Kids can now enjoy our special Community First Saturday Skyway service! It’s free and connects to awesome Downtown destinations like Friendship Fountain, MOSH, MOCA Jax, and our excellent Downtown library!
The other Community First Saturdays location is Community East, which will be in the old courthouse parking lot. This space will be where we feature Food vendors/Trucks, a bar, DJs, and café tables and chairs and umbrellas on the Riverwalk. Community East is a natural cap to the east end of the Riverwalk, and will be more about lounging, socializing, and gathering and making/meeting friends.
Community First Saturdays is expected to be robust with good crowds each month that will grow as the event becomes more mature. Please join the event’s Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/communityfirstsaturdays and follow us at www.twitter.com/community1stsat.
Activities and schedules will be announced on the group’s blog www.communityfirstsaturdays.com.

It is harvest season and that means fresh hops. And that in turn means brewers are adding fresh hops to brews. And that means fresh hopped beer will soon be pouring from taps everywhere! Here is a discussion Joe Talentino and I had on the subject from “I Know Jax.”
