    You said it! If we ever get out that way I am going to make it a point to stay in that room. Too cool. I don't know how I'm going to keep my wife from trying to take that couch though...she'll love that.

    Mike, thanks!

    Roger, I just finished Casablanca...wow...after the umpteenth time watching it...it just doesn't get any better than that movie.

    If you get a chance, that hotel is really worth your trouble, just for the ambience. The service leaves a lot to be desired, but I'm not sorry I have used that hotel twice, now. My wife...could be happier, service-wise. Let me know if you need details.

    Excellent, Hatophile!
     
  11. The Whippet Beer is from a local brewer, Thirsty Dog. When I saw it at the market, I had to get some, then thought this would make a good picture. The beer tastes pretty good, too.

    Perry that's great! About fifteen years ago I remember seeing something in a small market that was produced by Thirsty Dog, but it wasn't intended for human consumption-- it was beef flavored water for dogs. I wonder if it's the same company?

    Yeps, nice shot of what looks like a good atmosphere.
     
  18. It tastes pretty good for beef-flavored water.

    Last week I celebrated with a Deschutes Abyss. It is dark Russan Imperial Stout. "Hints of molasses, licorice and other alluring flavors make it something not just to quaff, but contemplate." I sipped and enjoyed the stout with cheese, venison and Finn Crisps (hard crisp bread). More about the beer here; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJIu0xr5l-Q#t=0 .

    Sharing the pic is my vtg. Stetson Stetsonian.
