The room was packed, as usual. The only free tables were outside. It was a perfect evening, but in LA everyone breaks out their heavy parkas and mittens whenever the temperature dips below 64 degrees, so we practically had the patio to ourselves.

While Domino dished up his weekly dose of Life Lessons, I took a sip of his EAGLE ROCK BREWERY POPULIST IPA - Beer #9. Sweet Jesus, what a great IPA. The last few times I've had it, I didn't want anything else. One of the best in LA. Mildly skunky, definitely a brew for Real Men... like guys who work with machinery. Men like Joe Denunzio, who then made his appearance. This silverback gorilla of a human always meets up with us, but usually doesn't drink before practice, but tonight was the exception.
I helped myself to a taste of Joe's GOLDEN ROAD BREWING GET UP OFFA THAT BROWN - Beer #11. This is his go-to beer at Tony's. In general, I don't love brown ales, but this one has made me a believer in recent years.
