My new favorite store

A new Spec’s opened near us, so we decided to check it out today. Man, it’s a lush’s paradise! It’s huge – for you Austinites, it’s where Acadamy Sports used to be down on Lamar and 290.

Anyway, wow. Acres of beer, booze, and wine, plus lots of cheese, chocolate, and other fancy junk food. My kinda place. I’ve figured out that yes, I really do like beer, and so I’ve been picking up all sorts of different interesting beers. For example, right now I’m drinking an Arrogant Bastard Ale. It’s quite yummy. And I don’t care what it says, I am too worthy. :)

One extremely odd thing about the store, however was the cognitive dissonance I experienced when we walked in the door. On the door was a very official looking notice that stated clearly that no one under 21 was to enter. Period. As we walked through that door, our ears were assaulted by several shrieklings, which isn’t unusual anywhere of course. The part that was bizarre was the availability of several “car” shopping carts. Oh well, whatever.

Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!

Oh! I truly adore the Alamo Drafthouse. Next Wednesday, we’re going to see the Princess Bride – a Quote-Along Princess Bride. If you’re in Austin, you should go!

That’s all I’ve got tonight. My pizza, beer, and pokemons are calling me.
