Any suggestions for a spot for great Draft Ale and lunch for Saturday?
Anyone want to join me for such?

Is BJ's any good?

We might stop there Fri-night as they have a gluten free menu for wifey.
Tilted Kilt

The beer is good also.

No bullshit, I give it another week or I am going back to my DR and asking for some meds to level me out.

Sorry you had to deal with this from others. I hate myself several times a day.
Oh, you poor bastard!!! I think you just need to ride more.......

I don't blame you for the action of others, even if you act like them. At least you are aware!
Remember, part of the burden lies with the person interprecting your actions/behaviors, so don't just blame yourself. Part of my challenge is to get the scab picker to acknowledge this behavior and part of my challenge is to educate my staff on how to receive feedback from her (They perceive it as negative, but that's certainly not her intent)

Damn optimist in me

I absolutely cannot believe I replied to that post, without seeing the comedic nature of either the original post, nor my reply.

I have failed.

I saw "is BJs any good" upon opening the window......my pervy, gutter dwelling mind pulled that phrase right out of the txt.

The part that sucks is, at this point in my life I wish my mind could pick out winning stocks like that.

There is seldom a prize for having a dirty mind.

Barleys Smokehouse is very good, and you're hitting it at the right time to get the extremely exclusive (like 2 weeks a year) beer whose name I can't recall at the moment. http://barleysbrewing.com/smokehouse/

I was impressed by Gordon Biersch too. But I didn't eat there, just stopped by for a drink. I'd imagine the food is pricier than the previous two. http://www.gordonbiersch.com/locations/columbus-oh
FWIW, I dont belive that they brew at the BJs on Polaris, if you want to get all snobby about it. That said, thier Nutty Brewnette may be my favorite brown ale anywhere...

No I was always going to make one. The bike took 1 trip to land between the lakes when the boys were little,the rest of its life has been in the yard. Most people have 50cc pit bikes we have a 125. My youngest boy is now 6'3" and 260, and signed last week to play football at Harvard.

Central Ohio beer/food establishments of note:

The Pub or BJ's at Polaris. Both good food, but the pub has the edge on brew, IMO.

Downtown has The Elevator brewing co. and Barley's. Both do their own brew and have good food.

Another option is Fado Irish pub that's literally straight out the front door of the Easton Hilton.

I want to make one also and having one to copy would make it alot easier. I will keep looking. Sounds like your son is off to a good start in life.
