You know, I'm sitting here, beginning another double-venue entry, and I just don't see the point. This will be very brief and it will still be too long.
Yesterday afternoon we had lunch at The Red Star. I had a Goose Island Honker's Ale (84). Seemed a little more bitter than it was in Chicago, but that may have just been my mood.
Next I had a draft Bluegrass Dark Star Porter (110). Pretty good I guess, but I'm starting to think that this beer is nothing but burnt malt, with a little burnt chocolate in it.
Last night, Rich O's was completely full of idiots. I grabbed a seat on the sofa where I was treated to some words of wisdom from this old lady who was there with her grandkids or great great great grandkids or something.
I bet that 90% of the people that stayed in New Orleans only stayed so they could rob the houses of the people that had evacuated.You racist bitch.
I almost spit out some of my precious Delirium Tremens (337) when I heard that one.
The next vomit to leave this woman's mouth was this, about 'blogging:
What happens is, these 'bloggers get a consensus about some current event, then they write about it, and there's a discussion about it.You utter moron.
This is pretty much the exact opposite of what 'bloggers do.
At about this time I got shit from one of my friends for not wanting to drive eleven zillion miles to sit around and do nothing but drink. I can sit around and do nothing but drink at Rich O's (much closer to my home) and there's always a chance that somebody that's not retarded may come in and make an interesting evening of it.
Also at about this time I ordered a Baltika "6" Porter (142). Yummy.
But my favorite idiocy of the night came from one of the great great great great grandkids. He was sitting on the loveseat, reading a food menu, and he stopped the bartender and asked:
Hey, Chief, can we get food here?I so wanted the bartender to tell him that sorry, the menus are for decoration only. But he didn't.
When these people finally left (off to a Mensa meeting no doubt) the old lady dug out some Mardi Gras necklaces for me. That was nice of her, but she's still not getting any. I gave the red necklace to TallLady, and after a while Bubbles came in so she got the purple necklace. I'm saving the green one for VigilanteGirl.
The Tremens had, as I'd known it would, screwed up my drinking schedule, so I only had the two beers. I got home a little after 10:00 and watched The Blues Brothers.
Wow, this entry turned out to be a lot longer than I'd expected. Still boring though.
