  1. my kid called me and told me that it was very strong at her school (a few blocks from my place) and there was no way the books hadn’t destroyed my amp.
  2. seems to have broken the resy link

    was the steak from ends meat?
  8. the gowanus whole foods has veal occasionally. union market too I think.
  9. apparently one of their neighbors has it out for them. they did change a bunch of stuff during the pandemic. the stuff in that complaint won’t get fixed easily. really hope they pull through, I love that place and the people who work there are mostly nice. on a more selfish note I really hope next week’s tomb mold shows happen. sumac was so good tonight.
  10. at 8pm on a friday. really maddening.
  11. trillium fort point pale ale - 6.6% abv. trillium, as we all know, is one of the original north east ipa makers that's gone from being trade bait to legal distribution over the last ten years. I haven't had enough of their beer to get a real handle on it, the stuff I had on tap at their boston location wasn't great but I've enjoyed some of the cans I've had over the years. this is one of their early beers and I remember enjoying this last time I had it. it was also the freshest can at the place I picked this up. this one has citra and columbus and tastes mostly like the former - this is a really nice version of the really familiar mix of grapefruit, mango, and pineapple you get with citra that has the right amount of bitterness in the finish along with a hint of some vegetal stuff that's not great. middle recommended.
  12. that article is amazing. I just realized I’ve seen the more woman a couple hundred times.

    David Bouley

    my ex and I went on an early date there too.
  14. some truly amazing stuff on facebook about her life in the 80s.
  15. abomination brewing co love letters from hell milkshake style triple India pale ale with candy hearts, sprinkles, marshmallows, milk sugar, vanilla bean, strawberry, ice cream & artificial colors - brewed at the 12% brewing project in north haven, ct, 9.7% abv. I don’t know what the artificial colors are about, this looks like a typical hazy ne ipa. you wouldn’t really expect it to taste like one, but this more or less works like a triple ipa despite all of the adjuncts. there’s an artificial set of sweet vanilla and strawberry notes, followed by a little bit of hop burn and some lactose. this isn’t as well put together as the omnipollo or mortalis stuff but it’s more or less what I hoped it would be.

    The Seneca

    my local has a basically identical proffer and while good is clearly worse than the seneca.
  17. the willaimsburg one is very good. there’s a few places that I think are better.
  18. Where should I go in Clinton Hill? Sailor is closed today.
  19. omnipollo eliphas double india pale ale - 8.1% abv, brewed at the 12% brewing project in north haven. this is a relatively new omnipollo recipe that uses a mix of "the juiciest hops they could find" that can't be googled. this is pretty solid - there's a slightly thicker than average mouthfeel, more bitterness than usual, and the hop profile is something like tangerine pith and mango creamsicle. this is better than the last couple things I had at finback and so on. mildly recommended.
  20. fat orange cat less more new england style double india pale ale - 8.4% abv, brewed at the 12% beer project in north haven. 12 percent llc has a lot of brands I don't really keep up with, the key food has a bunch of their stuff at the moment, this is the second freshest one after the omnipollo beer I had last time, and I didn't remember that the last thing I had from this one was terrible until I left the store. this is a straight up the middle north east ipa. it was made with citra and ahtamun hops, which is a combination you don't see much although I think ahtamun is used in beers like jai alai. this is pretty bitter with a simple citrus hop profile underneath - I would have have guessed this was mostly mandarina bavaria or one of those german hops that's never that interesting. meh.
  21. the seneca is good too. better beer than rolo’s.
  22. no, the franny’s of ridgewood is rolo’s. it’s worth going to if you’re in the area.
  23. franny’s wasn’t a pizzeria. didn’t I learn that from you? I’m kinda shocked you haven’t been. the first time I went I overheard the one of owners interviewing a potential cook and he said they were trying to be franny’s. I think it’s one of the better nbc places I’ve been to, and the multiple vernaculars thing kinda works.
  24. wine goes better with most food. would have a beer with their burger I guess.
