Nuts

Nuts... in my beer. When did my glass become a target? Last night, that's when.

Reed Pub has a nummy oatmeal stout on tap right now. Which means that right now Reed Pub is one of my favorite places. Last night the String Rats played there so of course we had to go support Elise, and meet up with several friends (Missy-plus-one, Kate-plus-one, Shannon-plus-one, Deanna)... and our next-door neighbor friends were there as well. Before the show we had a delicious (and very filling) dinner with Missy & Co so we didn't really need any food but our table had a bowl of peanuts for snacking. And some time during the latter part of the first set Scott shot a peanut into my beer.

I fished it out. Had we not been in a public place I probably would have chucked it at him. Mr. LT thought that was one of the funniest things he had seen in a long time, so eventually he shot a peanut into my beer, too. Yeah, you guys are just hilarious. In the interest of full disclosure no, I was probably not completely innocent and did some flinging of my own... but not in the direction of anyone's drink. That's just wrong.

The show was great! The Pub isn't the greatest music venue in town - it's kind of a cave. Usually they have hard rock or heavy metal and it's so loud that you can't talk with friends, and it's tough to enjoy. I think the 'Rats were a better fit because they still sounded good but didn't blast the place wide open. Ya know?

String Rats

They have two shows coming up next month - at Winestyles on April 11th and downtown at 28, April 19th. Hope to see you there!

You are now officially our publicist and band photographer - you're awesome, Jen! So, how did the beer taste with a little salt in it? It actually looks really goooood. Dang, that is some happening beer, isn't it? Peanut or no peanut...

Awww... thanks! You know, the flavor of that beer is so good that I really didn't notice the salt. Of course by then I had already had a glass of wine (with dinner) and a beer... so who really knows? ;)

Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout is my 2nd favorite beer of all time --

Now I'll have to try it with peanuts.
