One More Week
I still have a few things to do to get ready, but I’m definitely on track for leaving next Friday. Of course, nothing was going to keep me from the opening night of the new brewpub, Wild Wolf. What better way to prepare for visits to other breweries?
I must admit to some concern about visiting a brewpub on opening night – most new restaurants have bugs to work out (figuratively speaking, of course – the literal ones tend to plague older eateries). But apart from the service being a bit on the slow side, which was understandable, it was as if they’d been in business for weeks: quick refills on the water glasses, for example.
The beer (I only had one, a smoked Scottish ale, the same as my friend ordered) was tasty, which was the important part, and the food was deliciously what you’d expect from a brew pub – though I saw some unique menu items I might try after I get back from my trip.
Speaking of the trip, today I saw something that I desperately want to put on my car.
Looking on the internet, though, apparently those things sell for about $80. I’ll pay $80 for a hood ornament when… well, when hell freezes over. And I’m way too classy to even hint that I might want something like that for Christmas. Yep. I’d never do anything like that.
