If you've been wondering why I seemed to have fallen off the side of the Earth..... I had a short business trip, and have just returned. As always, I need to thank Cathy for taking the reigns while I was away. And though this was a business trip, I was able to squeeze a few meals in.... and you know I like to tease you all, so here are a couple of photos with what's coming up..... I'm sure that you'll be able to figure things out by the photos.
And since there was a strong craft brewing scene in one of the cities, I sent out a quick email to FOY Josh Sibelman, who provided me with some recommendations. And it just so happens that the store I went to for bottled water sold beer by the bottle, so each night I was able to purchase a bottle (or two) of local beers.....
On my last evening, I dropped by to buy some water, and decided to get one bottle for the road. This time, I asked the gentleman working there what he'd recommend..... he picked out Lake Louie Brewing Company's Tommy's Porter for me. A customer concurred telling me that an ex-girlfriend of his loved Lake Louie's brew so much that, and I quote, "got the Lake Louie emblem tattooed on her..." (fill in the blanks).
Speaking of Beer:
Well, we were speaking of beer, right? Man, time sure does fly...... it seems that San Diego Beer Week is upon us again. Josh, Andy, and Candice, organized a wonderful dinner at Ba Ren last year. This year, we selected Sab E Lee in Santee as the sight for the spicy Beer Week dinner.
Last I heard there were a few tickets still available. You can get more info, and purchase tickets here.
You can see the menu, and the beer paired with the food at that link. So don't be an ogre....or whatever it was that I took a photo of!
