Anyone who has turned on cable news recently has heard a variety of scenarios for the upcoming Rapture that will start May 21. We even wrote a story about it back in April when billboards started popping up around town announcing that it is coming.  

My Twitter and Facebook feeds have been filled with references, and comedians/news outlets are having field days talking about the correct way to observe the end of the world. 

So here is what I will be doing. Sports reporter Joelle Milholm and I plan to head to the West Coast Beer Fest on Saturday to find some new beers that we can enjoy as the world ends over the next five months. 

On Sunday (on the assumption I will not be one of the 144,000 to be raptured on the first round), I plan to head to Ironstone Vineyards for some wine tasting, and then to the Calaveras County Fair to watch frog jumping. 

Now I want to hear from you. What are plans? Are you using the end of the world as an excuse to throw a party? Are you hiding in your bunker with a year supply of food? Are you celebrating a major life milestone that happened to be scheduled on the same day? 

Comment or e-mail me at maggiec@lodinews.com, and maybe I'll post some of the best answers this weekend or Monday. 

Hope everyone has a good weekend, Rapture or no Rapture.
