OBAMAGANG!!


Philly's City Paper's Meal Ticket had this item today, and I couldn't resist. One of the most romantic beer bar/restaurants on earth, Bridgid's, (24th & Meredith Sts.) has what they believe to be the last known keg of Brewery Ommegang's 2009 Inauguration Ale, otherwise popularly known as "Obamagang", and they'll be tapping the stuff tomorrow, August 4, on the occasion of the Prez's 48th birthday.


With hints of chocolate and kriek (cherries), this ale surely sounds delicious, and I've got to figure a way to wangle myself out of the house to grab a pint or two. Bridgid's will even be serving a slice of birthday cake to anyone who orders a pint. Woo-hoo!


Any clever ideas on how I can talk my way out of the house tomorrow night for a few hours at Bridgid's? Winner gets a pint or two on me!

Hmm, I don't understand why they didn't put it in cans. After all, nobody ever said "YES WE BOTTLE."

Start talking about how you believe that Howard Eskin is one of America's great journalists. If that doesn't get you thrown out of the house, nothing will.

Fortunately (or unfortunately) Eskin is a good friend of mine from our days in radio, and that opinion would be seconded in my house. Try again (please!).

A steady diet of garlic omelets should get you thrown out of the house.

Just tell her I'm in town and you are meeting me at Bridgid's! Have fun!
