Euro Beer #63: Dinner in Bed


By now you are used to me calling wines beer, right? Just get over it. On this trip, if it's alcoholic it's beer. We were wiped out and kind of tired of Genoa, so we decided to get some wine and grub and eat in our shitty hotel room. We bought drinks from supermarket up the street. Cheap chianti, pretty good, solid. Moretti. Then we stopped into La Focacceria di Teobaldo (Via Balbi 115r) for some pizzas and whatnot: Focaccia w/ tomato, cheese, mushroom, prosciutto. Spinach and cheese calzone. White focaccia with cheese and mushrooms. We scarfed all this down sitting in our bed watching Italian MTV and listening to the prostitutes outside our window. Romantic.

Euro Beer #62: Cafe Barbarossa


 Seemed like a local spot. Lots of students. Two glasses of red wine. I had a panini dragone (spicy salami, spicy sauce, spicy something). Sofia had pasta of course: Tortellini with meat in it and cream sauce and ham bits. I feel like I need to say something clever about this meal . . .

Euro Beer #61: Pizzeria di Vico dei Biscotti


The atmosphere pretty much sucked at this joint. Large windows. Busy. Soccer game (Roma) was on, that helped. We ended up here as it was across the piazza from 28 Erbe and it was rated ok in our guide book.
We had a Cuatro Estacion pizza and a half litre of wine. Whilst watching the game I forced Sofia into letting me order a London Pride, a welcome brew, bit of hops and home.
Wow, now that is a beer photo. Award winner.
