Last night was just strange.
The parking lot was full. The lot across the street was full. The lot at Kroger was pretty fucking full.
Not a good sign.
So I walked into Rich O's. The loser area was completely packed. The front area was completely packed. Rich O's proper was...
surprisingly, not packed.
So I sat in the throne and wondered what was going on with the crowd. There wasn't a single familiar face in the entire establishment except for the bartenders and the two people sitting on the sofa. It was like I'd walked into the wrong bar or something.
Pretty damn weird.
My first beer was an Upland Winter Warmer (180). This beer would later prove to be my downfall.
I talked with the couple on the sofa about nothing much. SassyGirl called to let me know that she'd be in later. WomanRepellant showed up, as did a few of the PBDs.
But mostly the place was full of strangers and assorted idiots. I ended up theorizing that these were people that had come to the area for the big Thunder Over Louisville air and fireworks show. At least that's one possible explanation. Another might be that the universe hates me.
My second beer was a yummy BBC Jefferson's Reserve Bourbon Barrel Stout (184).
By the time SassyGirl showed up, I was already starting to regret drinking the Upland. Not that it's not a great beer - it just seemed to hit me harder than it ever had before.
So I ordered a Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier but I only drank a little bit of it (856). I ended up coming home a little after 11:00.
Now tonight the place will be closed because it's always so dead in there when they have the stupid Thunder show. So I don't know what, if anything, I'll do tonight.
