    I'm sure Vegas is an incredible scene in the run-up to the Super Bowl.  
    I did not get a visit from the little brothers, a bit surprised. This is the first time I’ve seen the “meat sweats” come from the grill. 

    Vegas is an event city. It’s what keeps this place air conditioned. Luckily I live and work far enough away from the action that it doesn’t really affect my daily life. There was a ton of OT available for the weekend, however, I opted to sit this one out. 
    How did the real sporting event, F1, ultimately shake out?  Ready for next year?
    Economically, I’m not sure. These events are always inflated. I would say the quality of life and everyday tourism around it is a failure. The Strip and area around it was a mess with construction for a year prior and will be still until the foreseeable future. It was hard to walk around down there in the weeks leading up to the race and a few weeks after. 
    I cannot fathom an event that negatively impacts the strip for weeks being good economically.
    I am convinced the Mob is still active and quite lucrative in Vegas. They aren’t involved in casinos anymore, now they own the paving companies that rebuild the roads. 
    My uncle built a couple of hotels in Vegas. Sadly he has passed but I’ll ask my other uncle if he was connected..

    Always enjoy your football posts, even if I don’t tend to catch the matches.

    But I had a good laugh at your parting line mentioning “mid-strength beer”.  I am just wondering what ABV qualifies as “mid-strength” in your estimation?  

    Craft beer in the US has moved over the past decade to double and even triple IPAs, with ABVs north of ten percent.  I have the waistline to prove it.  @Foghorn’s beloved Curieux is just over ten.  

    Now of course I also know that the Europeans were on this game many moons ago, and that while Americans are really just discovering these glories, the Belgians in particular have been there and done that.  But then I also recall you mentioning some low-calorie Guinness beer you’d become fond of, and so I am genuinely curious where you fall on the strength preference line.

    I know that’s a very long response to your parting shot, but it is Friday, and at least I didn’t say anything about your roof. 
    It's a phrase I picked up recently and it made me laugh as it perfectly describes vague beige area between 'meeting go' and 'but I have to be up early in the morning, so you know...'

    To the matters at hand,
    yes - those crazy Belgies have been bang at it for years with their mad double digit % beers.  I suspect it's a ruse to drain foolish youths of their cash whilst 'on tour'.    I find those invariably syrupy, but perhaps I'm a a Philistine after all?  
    Over here the traditional bench mark for 'strong' is 5%, amongst mainstream beers. That's where Stella Artois sits, and that is the reference beer for booze fuelled bozos. I like it, but then again I do prefer a handful of 3.5% beers when I have a thirst on. 
    0% Guiness is a revelation, the calorie count is slightly lower - but it's Guiness, so it's like four rather than 5 sugars in your coffee.
    I am now full abroad the 0% beer bus, on school nights.  I like a cold beer and I am unkeen on drinking every night because it makes me miserable. 

    Also,  yours is not a long response - I refer you to my post you replied to.  👍
    This response was everything I was hoping for. I had a good laugh at the “booze fueled bozos” and Stella.  Here I think Stella drinkers are not so much big boozers (after all 5% is practically water for us Americans) but folks who are trying to pretend they’re in touch with their European heritage, or something.   

    I am a fan of Guinness in general but have yet to try the zero.  My father switched to na beers some time ago and I will have one on occasion.  We have come a long way with making na beer here in the US.  On the calorie front, years ago I recall an underground ad campaign of sorts by Guinness where they were trying to convince unsuspecting Yanks that there aren’t actually that many calories in a pint of their stout.  The campaign explained to people that a pint of Guinness had fewer calories than a pint of orange juice.  So, how bad can it really be?  That seemed to be the logic.  Just don’t bother looking to see just how many calories are in an entire pint of orange juice…nothing to see here, pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

    Cleaned out the Egg yesterday, it’s been awhile. While finishing the clean out this morning, I noticed my first crack in the firebox. It still has a lot of life in her. Pre-smoking tomorrow’s dinner of pulled pork.

    @lkapigian - I'm sure you don't get any credit for the spread.  But within the fanatic food community I am sure you are held in the highest regard (or at least the restaurant patrons...).  🌮😎

    I’m sure the Buffalo will be right on that, seeing as how he reads all of the threads…

    That was a great thread. Wish he was still around, always had some epic cooks and parties.

    What a great game.  Feel bad for Moody, he is an amazing kicker, but I suspect he will be replaying that extra point for a while.

    It was blocked, no? He’s young, they’ll be plenty more misses. They had em in the first half and then abandoned the game plan.

    Just read about the passing, at age 94, of Bob Moore company founder of Bob's Red Mill. Good guy, good company, good products. I've bought a lot of their products over the years. RIP Bob!

    Played out just like 4 years ago.  New QB comes in excited and fresh, coach calls some great plays and keeps the Chiefs on their heels.

    Then the Chiefs just keep grinding and capitalizing on mistakes in the 2nd half.  The kick was low and the line did its job.  He will be replaying that for a while.

    Heck, I still replay a handball call on me from soccer in 2nd grade that cost us a chance to move on in the tournament. (It was a good call too, I f’d up)

    Yep.  In Kindergarten I remember Geoff LaPlante trying to put a stick in my tricycle wheel and I couldn’t turn in time and ended up skinning my knee while Heidi St Onge looked on and laughed.  True athletes hang on to things for a long time.  That’s what makes them great.
