Happy Hour

Forums:

I am sick of reading the Stein MT thread, so lets argue about when and where for a while.

My vote is the Interstate Patio on one of the weeknights where they have select $3 drafts.

That works.

Which nights would those be, since my lovely work firewall will not let me open their website.

This is my new favorite place since I can bring my dog.

Isn't it just Tuesday?

I'd like to know what these select drafts are as well first.

Not sure if thats possible? In my experience its been one or two things that are definitely a good deal/somewhat unique and then things like Philly Pale Ale and Sly Fox 113. Nothing to hit it out of the park, but it is a $3 craft draft on a nice patio.

sdm's picture

Ok. Well then pick a date and time and when people try to change it just ignore them. Otherwise we'll be here still trying to plan this come the Fall.

yeah, we did the $3 beer thing one night back in the fall. i think it was kenzinger, sly fox pale ale, a wheat i can't remember and i want to say the great lakes porter, but that might be because i see that beer everywhere anymore.

Also, be honest, will you people hold it against me if I wear the cheesesteak hat out again?

newcomer almost got killed for holding down a table of four with only two people until we got there. i would recommend against loco pez.

i do like egg's happy hour. it's 4-7 and they have a range of $3, $4 & $5 beers. you can also get a ton of mussels for $5. the outdoor picnic tables have a pretty solid amount of seating for bigger groups.

Anyway, we could do next Tuesday. If yous want to get started 7ish, we can meet you after the Loco Pez meeting of insanity.

None of these have come to zoning since I started working with the zoning committee (so, for at least a year now). I remember there being some buzz about the tables at EGG when it was Fathom, mostly from the nearby neighbors. I can do some digging if people are interested.

Let's leave Sketch's tables alone. I like being able to enjoy by burger and beer outside in peace.

Recap:

Jordan: April 1st is a Sunday. And if you ever wear that hat again, i'll be forced to kick the tacos out of you.

JBette: Isn't the 3rd some big time zoning meeting for the IceHouse and LocoPez' Outdoor seating? (irony?)

Other than that, I'm completely down.

I will answer the middle part since I am still in zoning mode. Yes, Loco Pez meeting at 7:30. We are screening Ice House that night, so the community meeting will be at a later date.

Perhaps bring happy hour to the Loco Pez meeting (oh, I totally didn't just suggest that as a member of the zoning committee).

o'r's, but i don't think they'd let me bring the dog. i never asked, though. shelley didn't seem to think it was a likely possibility.

if loco pez gets outdoor seating that'll be closer.

I'd find that very odd if you weren't allowed to bring your dog to the patio outside there. Actually, maybe I wouldn't.

Yeah I was thinking about that too. I don't think I've been there for a month. But the last time I was there i kind of swore off having draft beer there again since it was so bad.

So I just looked at their site, and they don't mention $1 oysters under Specials. Just $5 fried oysters. Have you ACTUALLY seen these $1 oysters, or is this just something you made up?

i personally have not ordered them. i am pretty sure they said $1 oysters when they were running down the happy hour for me. they do have oysters, and they are cheaper than the $2 or whatever they are full price.

I used to work at the Sansom Street Oyster House and we had oysters all year. One thing you might want to keep in mind is where the oysters come from. The owner would not buy oysters that came from any further south than Virginia. The warmer the water the greater chance of a problem

My daughter made me eat one, once. I really like veal.
(But I have to admit, I have eaten, while intoxicated, frog legs, smoked octopus, and a variety of things that we would have killed, not eaten, if they found thier way into my house when I was a kid. You must remember, I grew up without garlic or onions. Spectacularly deprived, gastronomically, anyway.)

i can't imagine going even one week without garlic or onions. that must have been a sad childhood. i guess you didn't know what you were missing, though.

Once, the old Polish guy who lived down the street, named Poppy, came to our door and asked if he could borrow an onion. When I told him we didn't have one, he didn't believe me. He always looked at me funny after that. I knew what I was missing, because my maternal grandmom lived down the next block, and everytime I went there she was cooking with onions. My dad just wouldn't have any of it. "They stink", he would say. Dig this, he's 82 years old, will be 83 in July, and has NEVER eaten pizza. Ever. Or a cheese steak. Really, I kid you not.

that seems completely out of tune with the board.

What can I say, I dance to a different drummer. I don't mind rambling on about things, but when it comes to booze, all I need is where and when. Then I'll either go or not.
I blame it all on th, with his whining about oysters and such.

Plan something for Friday again then.

He doesn't drink, and he doesn't smoke. He's the reason why everyone else in the family does.

He was force fed oatmeal as a child, and will never eat that either.
or eggs, absolutely not.
Chinese food, never.
Melted cheese, no...cheeseburgers have to have a cold slice of cheese added to them.
Almost forgot, no pasta, ever.
And yet he eats kippered snacks and canned sardines.
He's an enigma.

I'm the exact opposite. The idea of a cold slice of cheese disgusts me.

I'm out for next Tuesday. And also totally not in favor being clear and concise. I like my threads about happy hour to descend into chaos along with the rest of the universe.

That is exactly why I never make it to HH, the discussion gets too convoluted.

From now on we'll just plan these things small via the twitter with exact times and places.

Yeah, I was pretty disappointed. I rarely get the opportunity to go out now. Not saying I don't love my kids, but I like to get out every now and then.
