    This is tonight! Perfect weather for a key lime gose(very margarita tasting) or a peach sour. We also have a black raspberry mead on tap now from Redstone Meadery and Dogfish Head’s Midas Touch which is sort of a chardonnay, mead, beer hybrid. Dog People are serving franks& frites from 6-9 so stop by for dinner as well. Cheers!

    Final draft lineup for tomorrow’s event from Revolution:

    Rosa Hibiscus Ale- A highly drinkable ale steeped with hibiscus flowers for a natural tartness and slight pink hue.

    Fist City Pale Ale- A dry, hoppy, and extremely drinkable Chicago Pale Ale.

    1ZEnuff DIPA- Another huge IPA knocking you out with a four-hop blend of Apollo, Centennial, Crystal, and Chinook hops.

    Deth’s Tar Imperial Stout- barrel-aged Russian Imperial Oatmeal Stout.

    Bottom Up Wit- Belgian-style wheat beer spiced with coriander and orange

    Anti Hero IPA- An American hop assault features a blend of four hop varieties which creates a crisp bitterness and imparts massive floral and citrus aromas.

    From Bell’s:
    Quinannan Falls Lager- crisp, dry bitterness you’d expect from a German pilsner, but the use of highly aromatic hops from the Pacific Northwest in both the kettle & dry-hop evokes the fragrant pine forests that inspired this beer.

    Deb’s Red- An even-handed blend of mild caramel flavors and a dry biscuit character follow from various specialty malts.

    Oberon- wheat ale fermented with Bell’s signature house ale yeast, mixing a spicy hop character with mildly fruity aromas

    Boiling point Pale Ale- Pungent, orange zest, apricot, creamy oatmeal session ale

    Oarsman Ale- Designed as a flavorful session beer, Oarsman Ale uses a classic German brewing technique to impart a light, refreshing tartness.

    Two Hearted Ale-A significant malt body balances this hop presence; together with the signature fruity aromas of Bell’s house yeast, this leads to a remarkably drinkable American-style India Pale Ale.

    BUMP! This happens tomorrow at Happy Hour. We have also added a keg of Rain In Blood Orange Pale Ale to the lineup. There will be 8 taps total of Dark Horse flowing. It is worth the trip just to have their Plead the Fifth stout. Great beers& a great brewery deserve celebrating. Street Thyme is serving up food as well, so come hungry! https://www.facebook.com/events/691739287603376/

    The Pepsi sign was a bar called the Presto Lounge. I used to take the number 2 bus to OSU in 1990& 1991 when I lived behind the Short North Tavern. I remember accidentally getting off at that stop once and popping in to that bar to try to get a drink (I was under-age). After walking in, I remember thinking, “I should probably go get on another bus”. Heh. It was a bit rugged. Next to that bank, where Condados is now, used to be a Chinese restaurant called Golden City. My dad took me there when I was in high school& it was the first Chinese food I ever had.

    I hate shopping but didn’t mind it so much when I went there because it was so chill especially on a weekday afternoon. I always enjoyed listening to the old ladies who worked there talk about how they used to be models “back in the day” for Lazarus. They were very friendly and quite spunky. Pretty sure they didn’t need to be working anymore but that they came there everyday more out of habit, like it was more of a hobby than a job to them. I am sure they are going to be heartbroken when the store closes.

    I remember singing in the OSU Women’s Glee Club there. We had to wear these heavy, red wool blazers and it was 100 degrees. I remember feeling like I was going to pass out. Not a positive experience. I almost forgot about that day& that exhibit.

    This is such sad news. We had one of my all-time favorite St. James employee /holiday parties there during a crazy snow/ice storm several years ago. It was one of my favorite restaurants for sure. I loved the separate vegetarian menu they offered. Never had anything but top-notch food and service there. They will be missed.

    This is one of my favorite spots to relax and have a drink. I adore the owners& they were regulars at my place long before people thought it safe to come inside. I am glad they opened this place& have such a unique selection of drafts as well as great wine tastings. The atmosphere is super cozy& the option of grabbing Lavash is just too perfect. I also love that I run into many of my favorite regulars there. It is truly a great addition to the neighborhood.

    St James has Le Terroir from Lips of Faith on tap now. We might have a few bottles of La Follie left too but not positive about that. http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/192/26541/

    Very glad to help out. Such a devastating blow to some very great small businesses. BTW- we have added one more beer to the lineup, Lizard Queen Pale Ale which is a collaboration with Tired Hands Brewing from PA.
