Wed August 15 at 7:15 PM, 4th Ave Pub
76 4th Ave, Brooklyn, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Besides that nasty olive flavored beer, everything about the 4th Ave Pub is amazing and wonderful and superlative. Even the popcorn. Especially the popcorn.

See, if you went to an "authentic" "beer garden," you wouldn't have this olive-flavored problem(!)

Heh. I think the problem was that the beer was too authentic. It was some sort of sour on tap, and it was fizzy, and...I can't really talk about it anymore. It was a harrowing time. But I survived, to drink many a large, dull hefeweizen.

Great! I like the bartenders there too but I'm not on a first-name basis yet!

I MIGHT be getting dinner with someone, but otherwise I'm there.

I have rage and I need to climb at least 2x this week, so I'll try to get in for this meetup.

I can't make it this time, but I will be at the Sycamore meetup.

I'm going to watch Empire Records in McCarren Park, like the Millenial Hipster Asshole that I am. Maybe somebody will write something in the Awl about me.

Let the record show, though, that I will drink pretty much anything. If you fill a glass with chocolate syrup and black pepper and tell me it's beer, I will likely roll it around my mouth thoughtfully before declaring that has a really interesting chocolatey taste, with an undertone of -- pepper? Am I getting pepper? Mm. Hmmm. Yes. Very unorthodox, yes.

I once had a beer at the Brooklyn Inn that tasted like old cheddar. Just saying.

Beer, what beer? I just remember lots of popcorn! So much popcorn! Poooopcooooorn!!!!

I'm coming with my couchsurfer from Sweden, see you soon!

Yay! It was this horrid "sour" beer! I can show you which tap it is, I ordered by pointing at something. Not wise, but exciting!

"'That beer was truly awful.'

Greg Nog liked it!"


But to be fair, Greg Nog is truly awful.

If the rain doesn't strand me on LI, I might just make it.

Y'all are welcome to make your cases for/against me attending. I'll honor the will of the people.

I am already regretting not typing "fer or agin." As if I don't spend enough time talking like an old-timey miner as is!

If I didn't know that you were joking, these would be fighting words!

Also, everyone is totally welcome.

Hm, it looks like Empire Records is going to be rained out, at least for jerks like who don't feel like sitting in mud to watch a movie that is currently available on Netflix Instant.

I might stop by, if the weather lets up.

Looks like the trains are out between Jamaica and Atlantic Terminal. Another time, perhaps!
posted by Eideteker at 1:24 PM on August 15, 2012


Too bad! Hope to see you, Sara C. This weather is horrid.
posted by the young rope-rider at 1:31 PM on August 15, 2012


Oh shit, fingers crossed there's a train.

THE DRAMA!! THE DRAMA OF IT ALL!!!

OK so guess who got himself on one of the few trains to Brooklyn. This guy! Also, he has two thumbs. I probably should've led with that.

I should be there in 15-23 minutes. I'm risking life and limb for y'all, you better come and hang out with me!
