    I really don't care what the bubbles do, I just know that it's a fine beverage!

    Perhaps I'm creating a false memory here, but didn't y'all used to have meetings at that Irish pub on King St.(I forgot the name of the place )

    Us urban planning types were most likely to be drinking cold Newcastle from frosty mugs on the patio at Vickery's. Mmmmmm...

    the geology folks used to be a staple of the Vickery's $1 draft Rolling Rocks every Friday. We couldn't afford to pay extra for the fancy stuff for the sheer volume we were drinking

    That's the place! I had a brain fart and just couldn't remember.

    I was there for the $1.00 Rolling Rock Fridays on more than one occasion with our mutual friend. Who knows we probably met each other there sometime but erased the memory with a few too many one dollar beers.
