|Avoid eye contact with the Brew Jawa|
Wednesday night after work, I was without a car and needed to wait for a ride from The Mrs. There's only one bar within a block of my work, and that's THE OFFICE. I've frequented this room a million times, not so much because I'm such a huge fan, but because it's within walking distance. Any going away party or other co-worker milestone is celebrated at this establishment. The Office is also the standard Infest pre-practice watering hole. The bartender knows us and occasionally hooks us up. And its less than a mile from where we practice. The Office has decent taps (although they rotate infrequently), uncomfortable chairs, but nice bartenders. The more I come here, the more I recognize the regulars. There's a few guys I see every time, no matter what day of the week. Gotta love local drunks.

The Wife scooped me up, and we wrapped up the evening at home with a SIERRA NEVADA OLD CHICO CRYSTAL WHEAT - Beer #43. I've never seen this beer in SoCal, but my Mom lives in Chico, home of Sierra Nevada, and on her last visit brought me four cases of different Sierra Nevada brews. That's true love, right there. Old Chico is a perfect everyday beer. Not overwhelming, but superior to any other mainstream beer you'd pick up on Game Day. It's light, refreshing, but with distinct, gritty malt and barley flavor. I've got another 10 or so stockpiled if you want to try it.
And to top off the evening, the Clippers win again. Further proof that someone up there does love me!
