And something on waiters from Houston..

Pine-Sol?

I had a glass of BLUE MOUNTAIN’S  Über-Pilsner Sunday and was quite disappointed.  The first couple of tastes were fine, the maltiness and mouthfeel right, but as I drank it, the hoppiness became quite coniferous. Like chewing on a pinecone.

Show some restraint!

A real beer festival..

From deepest Bavaria! With an ox, too! That might cheer up the wingeing chaps..

Don't worry, be happy.

It's the Weihenstephan ox!! Much better than Spuds Mckenzie!

More Baron Ambrosia

This bourgeois eating stuff has to stop!

Come on.. I wish CHETTI’S COW AND CLAM was still around. Everything’s getting so hoity-toity;  por ejemplo, a craft beer joint in this burg called SEDONA. That’s the Sausalito of the desert southwest.Think New Hope, PA. Too cute for words. And alien power loci, too. Go to Roswell if you want *aliens*..

Where can a normal person get a dozen steamers  like you could at CHETTI’S these days? Yeah, the VFWs around Bawlmer have ’em, but that’s one heck of a drive for bivalves. And no local seafood dealers want to carry steamers. And I hardly want to give John Mackey at WHOLE PAYCHECK any of my $$ if I can help it!

KC Kiełbasa

Whilst in KCMO, I found this place..
Peter May House of Keilbasa
1654 Bristol Avenue,
Kansas City, MO 64126
(816) 231-9850
Good stuff.. about 3/4″ in diameter and better than the kielbasa at European Market out on Broad..

Sorry, this is a generic photo..

a local review from Yelp:

So I was browsing through random reviews and the word “kielbasa” pops up on my screen. That’s about all you need to get my attention; for 4 whole days I had kielbasa on my mind and yesterday had to talk myself out of driving 30 miles one way just to get my hands on some smoked sausage. It’s not surprising that I’ve never heard of this place before – it’s in the middle of a neighborhood and you have to be looking for it in order to find it. The sign says “since 1929” and inside it looks like they haven’t thrown anything away since then – toys, tchotchkes, photos, golf clubs – for the lovers of places with atmosphere it doesn’t get any more unique. Breakfast and lunch menus (see photos) list some super cheap items. I haven’t tried any since I had to run back to work, but I knew what I was there for, so I asked for kielbasa. I paid $8.25 for about 1.5 lbs. which ended up to be about 3 kielbasa-feet.I have to say this was easily the best kielbasa outside of the farmers market in my hometown of Odessa, Ukraine. It was smoky, slightly spicy, a little sweet, overall delicious, addictive kielbasa. I ate probably a third of it on the way to work.
If you are looking for a quirky place, with cheap food and awesome kielbasa, find this place and try it out.
P.S. I’ve tried Krizman’s but it was a long time ago and now I think this one is better.

It should be noted that RVA needs more Eastern Europeans and Mexicans.
