Yep same stuff but the food menu isn't as diverse as I would like it.

Since I'm in San Diego I head over to Stone Brewing Co. for the occasional lunch and to pick up growlers of Stone Smoked Porter and the Special Release Double Bastard when it's available (Nov 3rd!).

Werd. That's where I've had most of mine save the Rochefort which we can't get in Texas anymore. I'm 22 beers away from my plate.

Sadly that's about 40 miles from here down the Garden State Parkway. Not worth the trip but I will make sure to swing by if I'm ever going down to the beach... and probably again on the way home.

I was thinking about it, they only give you like a shot glass to drink out of. My parents are members so its only like $25 to go. You going?

My friend's parents put one on at the Orlando Zoo that is pretty sweet. They bring us down and have bigger glasses that we get and all that. If anyone is in the Orlando area you should definitely check it out. She was talking about them doing a wine tasting there as well.

Saucer is AMAZING! Some of the girls were a little less attractive last time I was in there, but the beer selection is truly amazing. Wednesday, Pint Night, $2.75, and all the time $5 car bombs. Doesn't get much better.

^^^^^yea i heard two years ago it was full glasses not small shot glasses, probably because fewer people were there that year!!!(those lucky bastards) I missed the wine tasting at the zoo earlier this year. I most likely am going with some peeps from work I think it's at 7 pm on saturday right?

Funny thing was on vacation in orlando and lido key recently and didn't know they even had a zoo there what with all the theme parks and all. Place called Jeremiah's had the best Italian ice though something called a gelati which they layered vanilla icecream(made with a richer heavy cream base) and your choice of gelato. Ohhhhhhh so good. Craving one right now

Wednesday night is glass night. I've got 52 glasses at present. I've got an entire kitchen cabinet just for them. I've had to start in on another cabinet, but my wife said I can only use the top shelf and after that I'm gonna have to start storing them elsewhere.

Now that is some good stuff! In fact, the liquor store up the street from me rates beer like wine. This is the only one they have stocked that scored 100.
