As if you haven't already, it's time to forget about all that "new year, new me" stuff — who are we kidding anyways?
The best excuse to put it off for another year is Wednesday, Jan. 17: Ditch Your New Year's Resolutions Day.
To no surprise, this "holiday" is as old as New Year's resolutions are, according to daysoftheyear.com
, which also points out what a shame it is that this annual self-accountability tactic usually proves to be as effective as "a hole-ridden umbrella is at keeping the rain out."
Given our propensity for vices, our minds immediately thought of all the pleasure-inducing events we'd be missing had we actually stuck to our stated goals. Cerberus Brewing Company
's Firkin Wednesdays seemed one of the greatest sacrifices. If craft beer is wrong, we don't want to be right.

Celebrate Ditch your New Year's Resolution Day and get $1 off a pint of Elysium IPA w/Experimental hops Wednesday, Jan 17.
The brewery, voted 2017's Best New Brewery
(as well as winning/placing in 11 other Best Of categories) by Indy
readers, is known to test the boundaries of beer and the palates of customers with its weekly tappings — among 30+ local breweries satiating the Springs thirst for craft beer. It'd be downright irresponsible for us to resolve not to support them. But if one-of-a-kind small batches (and the economy of the Springs) aren't enough to coax you out of #dryanuary, more power to you. We all know it's just a matter of time.
Perhaps your grade school gym coach didn't tell you, but sometimes it's OK to be a quitter. So throw in the towel on this resolution business all together, or at least consider a more sensical, moderate approach to your 2018 personal goals. At least you won't be completely miserable for the next 11 months.
2019 is our year for sure.
Who's your 2018 spirit animal?
