What is the Spring Beer Fling? It is a nostalgic day of seasonal beers, live music, games, and a lighted beach ball drop spectacular at Curtis Hixon Park. When I first read about this event, I knew we had to go. My fiance Gabe was an avid surfer when we lived on the east coast. He doesn't get to surf as much these days but does go on international surfing trips to countries such as Costa Rica and Nicaragua. When we saw that this event featured surf rock and a mechanical surf board challenge, there was no question if we were going or not.
