Just a real quick C(learing) O(ut the) M(emory) C(ard) post on this very warm Friday.......couldn't you use a cold one to start off the weekend? Isn't it Happy Hour time yet?
As with all my COMC posts...keeping the verbiage to a minimum. Have a great weekend!
Blind Lady Ale House:
To make it short and sweet, we enjoy the food at Tiger! Tiger!, We prefer the beer selection at BLAH.
The folks at both places have always been great.
Our favorite item on the menu is the Charcuterie Plate......we're fond of the Country Style Pate's
Once one of the kitchen staff came out to talk about making sauerkraut with the Missus. They chatted for like 15 minutes about it! You gotta love that.
The Missus is now hooked on Craft Beer and it basically started here with a glass of Three Philosophers. Crazy.....
The folks here know their beer, know how to pour it, and they seem to take really good care of it. Drop by and you'll see.

Ballast Point Tasting Room and Kitchen:
Met my good buddy Candice here.
I was shocked at how busy the place was..on a weekday!
Specialty Brewer Colby Chandler is here, so you'll always find something interesting.
When I visited, it was Brewpub area that was really busy.
The pretty straight-forward pub grub was pretty good.
As we were finishing up, Colby, who I know from our Beer Week dinners at Ba Ren and Sab E Lee Santee, came over and said someone wanted to meet us. This is where I get really uncomfortable....I like to keep a very, very, low profile. Anyway, that handsome dude manning the kitchen here is Travis Clifford, whom you might know from his blog Travis Like Food. No wonder we haven't had a post in forever! Like most of the food bloggers I've met, Travis is a very nice, down to earth guy, even though he likes those JIB stoner tacos! (JJK) So if you drop by, make sure you say hello. I gotta get back here again soon.
