365/8 Behold ... BEER!

365/8 Behold ... BEER!

This is grain, which any fool can eat, but for which the Lord intended a more divine means of consumption. Let us give praise to our maker and glory to his bounty by learning about... BEER.

Friar Tuck, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

It's Friday. Thank the heavens, the lords, the gods, the flying spaghetti monsters ... whomever makes you happy. It's been one of those weeks that I don't relish reliving, ever. EVER. And tomorrow? It will be 11 degrees in Austin.

Yes, you read that correctly. ELEVEN. This is what we have to look forward to tomorrow morning.

Tonight, though ... spent the evening having dinner and guinness with friends. A welcome and comforting end to the week. Laughter and catching up did abound. Good to see them. It doesn't happen often enough, unfortunately.

The bar was filled with color. Reds and oranges were abundant. We sat next to a shuttered window so we had a blue, diffuse light coming in from the sky as it filtered in through the shades. Mostly, I just like how blackhole of Guinness slapped right up front in the frame.

The beer, of course was delicious. As was the pizza. If you ever get a chance, check it out ... The Parlor on Guadalupe. Get one of the specialty pizzas. You won't regret it.
