Main Line: Revenge of the Candied Bacon
posted November 18, 2013 11:44 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Wed December 4 at 6:00 PM, Tired Hands
16 Ardmore Avenue, Ardmore, PA, USA (Map & Directions)
It has been quite a while since our last adventure to Tired Hands in Ardmore. The candied bacon is still on the menu and the beers are still weird and wonderful (I loved recent brews: Professor Caterpillar and Dr. Grasshopper). The only thing missing is us (I actually had one of the bartenders ask about us).
Tired Hands is a very cool little microbrewery in the heart of the Main Line, an easy 18 minute train trip from 30th St/20 minutes from Center City. Local cheeses and salads, many types of meat, and exciting beer options. Plus don't forget the candied bacon!

Confirmed for Wednesday December 4th.

Oh god I feel ashamed every time I walk past TH for ignoring meetups (which is, like, every day) so thank you for doing this! I can attest that the bread is delicious, the pickles are killer, and the beers extremely interesting.

I am very pro-Wednesday nights, though I am more pro-Wednesday/Thursday nights in December and not next week because that is the time of pies.

I want to go, but coming from the other side of the city doesn't make it certain.

I'm free any day except Nov 28-Dec 2 and Dec 5.

Hooray! I agree with jetlagaddict that we should wait till December because next week is Thanksgiving already, but I'm free any evening the first week in December (2-5), Monday through Wednesday of the second week (9-11), and Tuesday and Thursday of the following week (17 and 19). Any later than that would start to get tricky for me.

My running group has been running the Haverford Nature Trail on Wednesdays, and a few of us head over to Tired Hands afterwards.

I'm busy the 5th and 11th, but so far it looks like December 4th might be a good day.

4th is great for me!

I'm busy the 10th, otherwise pretty free

Just wanted to chime in and say that unless a work emergency comes up, I'll be there, growler in tow!

This is tonight! I'm planning on taking the 5:44 out of Suburban Station.

I will likely be on that same train, but will be getting on at Market East.

Aaaand I just realized I'm wearing a MeFi shirt today. Not intentionally.

Way to show up at the concert wearing the band's t-shirt, Rob.

Woof. Things aren't particularly rosy at work at the moment. Hopefully I'm just being paranoid, but I have a nasty feeling I might not be able to catch that first train. Fingers crossed I'm wrong.

We'll make sure that we don't drink ALL the beer, and I'm sure someone will keep an update on bacon sightings.

Ugh, this isn't looking good. Have an all hands on deck meeting scheduled at 5, which will likely be at least an hour. Best case scenario I could catch the 6:40, which would have me there a bit after 7, but if I miss that, looks like it'd be closer to 7:45-8:00 when I'd actually be there.

I may not be able to make it. This sucks.

Looks like I will be too late for the 544 out of suburban. I'll be on the next though, I'll be late but there closer to 7.

I'm here and upstairs. I've grabbed a table

Welp, I obviously didn't make it. Boo to that, man. Hope you guys had fun. Next time!
