But first, I was starving and I was in a pub, so what else was I going to do but drink some brews? Kim (the bartender) gave me a sampling of the bar's favorites, and I had a few pints of the delishesness and ordered the hummus plate & homemade chicken fingers. I laughed because I thought this pile of (scrumptious, homemade) hummus looked like a muppet with black olive eyes. No? Well, then it was just because I had spent the entire day looking at Muppets. I thought the parking meter resembled Beeker.
We stopped at a little Irish Pub on our way back into town for a couple of beers. I chose 'Mama's Little Yellow Pill'- a Czech brew that was on special. Dee-lish! And, note the awesome fingerless gloves, or 'sloves' as I call them which are right beside that tasty brew. Polly made those for me and I wore them every day on my travels. They fit just right, but I had to take them off so I wouldn't get sausage grease on them:
I included this picture because most of you know how I feel about meat product in a casing. But hey, when in Rome... Laura ordered this meat plate, which featured everything from the pub's home smoked apple sausage, to prosciutto (or was it ham? or are those the same thing?), to pate (which tasted a lot like a tuna fish/butter combination). I wouldn't go so far as to say that I would order it again, but I gave it a try and it meshed well with the beer flavor.
Thanks, Laura Fries for a fun afternoon! It was nice to finally meet you!
