OK, I know it's Sunday evening, and this is supposed to be a Friday thread. But the State of RI has pretty much opened up and we're supporting our favorite restaurants:

This was our esteemed RI Gov Friday night with the protesters in Providence, not long after her daily briefing where she said we must wear masks, maintain social distancing, and limit gatherings to something like 10 people in our "close community." So here she is, no mask and no social distancing and no limited gathering. Behind her, RI State Police Colonel (supremo leader). No mask, no social distancing, no limit on gatherings. In front of her, RI Nat'l Guard 2-star General (supremo leader). No mask, no social distancing no limit on gatherings. So, as far as I'm concerned, we're back in business as usual regardless of what she tells us we must do. It's a farce.

Happy Friday, folks. I just finished mowing the lawn in 82 degree sunny weather and worked up quite a thirst. This Long Trail IPA "hit the spot." ABV 6.5%. No mention on the can of bitterness, but I estimate 40-50 IBUs, just about at my limit. In a normal world I'd be at Thompson today for the vintage weekend. But it was cancelled.

Its not Friday. But our local bar Bill's just re-opened. They re-modeled the bar and this is our first night. It's nice. We can't sit at the bar (for some dumb reason), but Kim the bartender took our pic at the side bar, where we can sit (for some dumb reason).

IMO, it must be Beefeater gin. Straight up. Dry. Ice on the side. Couple olives. I'd prefer the olives to be larger. 

(And the reason for the hat? My hair is too damn long to do anything with it. I tried the DeNiro look with goop gel. I hated it. My haircut appt. is Thursday, so then I'll be back to normal).

OK. Today is Thursday. I'm prepping for Friday. I'm hoping we get some forum support on this thread for Friday Happy Hour.

Salute! Polski beer ("pivo" pronounced pee-vo)

"Beer" in English = "pivo" in Polish. Also, the English word "good" is "dobry" in Polish language. And you should roll the tongue with the letter "r" in the word dobry. So "dobry pivo" = good beer.

laugh

I'm half Polish, Annie is full Polish. We both appreciate Polish heritage and food. And we're not offended by Polish jokes.

Semi-relevant:

Friend: "Hey I found this immaculately preserved E36 M3box, might buy it and send it up to Timmins."

Everyone: "No, don't let it rot."

Me, a pitcher of jello shots later: "E36 M3, I'll buy it."

I picked it up today. Pics soon, but it may be Cars & Bids material, if not BAT-worthy.

Well, it's Friday, and E36 M3 happens.

Post Shift: "There will be no working on drinking time."

Sorry, but I don't have a pils glass. I always loved ordering a pilsner draft in Wetzler, "Chermany" which I had to visit often for business. It took about ten minutes for the bartender to pour it because of  the fantastic head.

Yesterday I learned about Rabbit Hole.  Gin aged in "Kentucky rye whiskey" barrels.

 

Good stuff

Well, Cheers to you all. (Y'all).

It's not Friday, but we we were at Fresco's West Warwick last night (Saturday). Is that close a damn nuff? I had a Beefeater martini and Annie had a California Chardonnay. Nice color to that chardonnay. Audra the bartender makes a great martini. Our silver 2018 Sonata Sport in the backdrop. I love the styling. Thank you Peter Schreyer. (Peter)

Peter has stepped down as Styling Guy at Hyundai/Kia due to age. He has a replacement who has different ideas. From what I've seen so far, he's not as good. (My opinon of course).
