OBrien's: fine beer, tasty food, and good company

OBrien's is my father-in-law's favorite haunt. He's there every day. OBrien's pours great local beers, prepares some outstanding pub fare (burgers, hot sandwiches, and salads) and is filled with what can only be described as a warm, neighborly crowd.

Evie and Mom graciously allowed me to accompany them to OBriens today for lunch with Tom, the previously mentioned father-in-law. We were joined by our friend Jason (one of the only people about whom Michelle actually speaks kindly) and a few of Tom's friends.

Tom extolling the virtues of one of the many exquisite beers poured at OBrien's, likely Pliny the Elder. I admit, I am a convert. The Elder is an out-of-this-world double IPA with a full-course meal in taste.

Jason showing Mom his cool Amazon Kindle.

Here is Evie delivering a look to yours truly stating very clearly: Get your own damned lemonade!

That's it for now. Off to the Plunge!

Ah yes, she'll steal everything off of your plate but her things are not to be touched! Such a girl, always razzing her daddy. Dad looks just as I expected him too, lounging at his fav haunt. Every day of the week. Doesn't that remind you of his sister. How Auntie Claire is at Gregorios every single day. I have such an odd family...
