|We met TC and Kaoru at the 21st Amendment in San Francisco for dinner
before the second Phil show. TC picked the pub because he knows the bartender.
Of course, that is not too surprising! TC knows the bartender is the most
important person in a pub to befriend. TC is a beer connoisseur. At the
very least, he is an overt beer lover. I believe one of his goals in life
is to try as many different types of beers and visit as many pubs as he
can before he dies. Once when a group of us were walking around Portland
in search of the famed 24-Hour Church of Elvis, we lost TC. He turned up
later claiming that he spotted a pub across the road and just had to go
have a beer. Well, the 24-Hour Church was closed anyhow (it turned out
that it was 24 hours a month, not 24 hours a day when it is supposed to
be opened), but he was going to pass up on Elvis for a beer! Oy!
Randy said that the beer was good, but not awesome. Since I don't
drink, I can't give a personal opinion. However, I have the same opinion
about the food - good but not awesome. The presentation was spectacular
though, but the portions were small. I tend to like big portions. Despite
my small size, I tend to eat much more than Randy. The location was within
walking distance to the Maritime Hall, so very likely we will be back again.
