"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard."
Say hello to Politenessman for me.
Back when my first name was Elder a group of us whiteshirts were in a restaurant in Texas when a lady came up and asked us if we were all brothers. We asked why and she replied, "because you all have the same first name" The look on her face told us that her logic circuits fired a split second too late. She was a good sport about it and we all had a good laugh.Corey (a few miles south of Tam right now)
Welcome to Salt Lake! Lots of good places to eat while you're here: The Atlantic Cafe, Moochie's Meatballs, Crown Burger, The Greek Souvlaki, etc. If I weren't one week removed from knee surgery, and as such useless, I'd take you on a tour (if there was time and interest).
I never laughed so hard as the first time I saw an Elder Beerman store.Made me wonder if there was a Teenaged Lightbeerman store. Or, hmm, maybe a Middle-Aged Bourbonman store.
Muaha. Muahaha. MUAHAHAHAHA!
If you get the chance, drive up to Odgen for the JMB firearms museum.http://theunionstation.org/index.php/museums-2/john-m-browning-firearms-museum/Where else can you see JMB's actual prototypes?
You'd make a fine junior wife.Gerry
There used to be a brew pub in downtown Salt Lake that offered a "Latter Day Stout".
How long you going to be in SLC? I recommend "Piper Down" for beer and food.
Oh yes, and if you're interested, there's a free CFP class with your name on it. Gives you everything you need in an envelope so you only need to mail it in. Let me know!
If you get the chance, drive up to Odgen for the JMB firearms museum.For some reason I can't quite put my finger on, I suspect that's already part of Tam's itinerary.
Ah the pilgrimage to great uncle JMB's hometown and my hometown. Enjoy the smokey air brought to you by the Summit County fire.
If you see any place serving Sasquatch Polygamy Nitro Porter, you are in the wrong place. That is not the brew you are looking for.
Sadly, SLC is but a one-hour layover each way.
Polygamy Nitro Porter is not bad, not bad at all.
Ah yes, Polygamy Porter. Pretty good. BTDT, got the Tee-shirt (Bring some home for the wives."
I was pleased that the snack stand inside security at the rather small Kansas City, Kansas (I think) airport served to-go beers to be opened and enjoyed whenever you saw fit. It was rather civilized to drink beer and enjoy free wifi while I waited for my connecting flight.
I second DuckGuard's suggestion. The JMB - PBUH - museum is epic. I believe the 1911 prototype is the Holy Grail. There was a WW2 vet who showed me around when I was there. He was great.
Polygamy Porter. Meh. I mean, it's not bad for being brewed in a state where the folks who don't drink tell the people who do what they're allowed to brew, but... That's a pretty heavy handicap to be playing under.
>> I am in an airport surrounded by guys in coats and ties ...>> ... I really want a beer all of a sudden.Some of them want a beer, too, but they'll never admit it.
I remember one advertisement in that airport - "Polygamy Porter. When you feel like more than one."
"Polygamy Porter. When you feel like more than one."There you go; it's a session beer, so if a group of friends each buys a round they go home happy rather than via the station house.
I got knocked off my motorcycle once by a coupla guys in a car wearing white shirts, black ties, and "Elder" nametags. The Dekalb County Mounty who answered the call seemed to take their side, so no ticket was issued. Fortunately, it happened at low speed and I was dressed properly, so didn't lose any skin, just had soreness and a bent shock on the bike. I rode it home.
P.s. Why, yes, I did have a beer(s) as soon as I got home.Repartee above reminds me:Q. What's the difference between a Methodist and a Baptist?A. A Methodist will speak to you if he meets you in the likker store. Hey, I'm Anglican. Knock yerselves out. It's no mystery why the canonical recipe for Chatham Artillery Punch is in the recipe book assembled by the ladies of Christ Episcopal Church in Savannah.
