'Merica.

I discovered I was getting room temp beer at the locally owned pubs--not the old pubs that were bought up/saved by that one corporation that serves the same beer and menu at all the pubs they own. I avoided those even though the pubs themselves were really cool.
And yeah, it seems like the beer is much less carbonated than here, which means you can drink a lot more and not feel like crap the next morning. Same with wine, too.
If you wander into Bag o' Nails Pub, let me know how it looks inside. It was one of those bought out/preserved by that one company. It's behind Buckingham Palace. I wanted to go in but ran out of time. Just the name of it is cool.

Enjoy. Sounds fun either way. How about some native teeth pics?

Been sampling all the different beers, getting better.  Our IPAs have more bite though.  Still found a few tasty ones... Curious IPA and Speckled Hen.

Bump because the gray, wet weather in EL reminds me of the number one Big Ben city.

Bump in memory of the late Turtleneck. He was a good sweater, a fine sweater, and we just didn't appreciate his superior construction.

If turtleneck doesn't post soon then we're gonna take away his geisha status. He better do that soon.
