Euro Beer #26: Continental

In the fall of 2007 my wife and I traveled through Europe for 10 weeks. We ate a lot of food and drank of a lot of beer (and wine). Not enough food, not enough beer. In Paris:

We were frustrated and a bit tired (too much touristing). We did not want to go back to our host’s apartment yet. We decided to get a drink before heading back. Easier said than done. I hate looking for a bar in an unfamiliar country . . . it’s the worst. We settled at the Continental and in the end it was ok, I guess. I have no idea where it is, but don’t worry, there are better places in Paris to get a beer. I had a Kronenburg, which was refreshing. Sofia had a red wine, not a good choice. Always get bottled beer in weird bars.

We left happier.

Sightseeing, look at that bird. What a capture!

Ahhhhh Shit

An abysmal failure:

I was able to snag a bottle of Abyss at the downtown Whole Foods during my lunch break. Dropped my bag and BOOM! Shit. There were only four left, it would have been wrong to go in and try to buy another bottle. Idiot.

There still might be some stout pouring down the Austin streets. Bring a sponge.

Ok, you have until Sunday to turn in your photos. Get on it. Actually don't, we want to win the kegerator. So don't go around drinking good beers and taking photos of yourself and get invited to a party with a chance to win a kegerator—let us handle it. More info here.
