I am very much enjoying my Thursday evening as I will be taking tomorrow off. My girlfriend’s teenage sister is in town from Texas, so we are playing the part of the somewhat older (yet still young enough to be “cooler” than the rest of the adults) relatives. Tonight we stopped off at the Winking Lizard, mostly in part to pickup our race packets for Saturday night’s 4 mile ‘Shot in the Dark‘ run in downtown Cleveland. Since we were there, we grabbed a bite to eat. I’m always a fan of the Lizard because of their enormous beer selection. Tonight I chose the Glass of the Month special, which was a French beer by the name of Kronenbourg 1664. It came in a very nice 16 oz. glass (as seen above), and ended up being a very tasty beer. Unfortunately, I think that is the last time that glass will ever be filled with that particular beverage because that is not a very easy-to-find beer. I hope I won’t do it too much disgrace by drinking Diet Coke out of it.
Tomorrow, we are taking a trip out to Cedar Point. Going there each summer was one of the highlights of my childhood, but I can’t even remember the last time I was there. It has been at least 5 years. I’m really hoping one of them will ride the 120 mph Top Thrill Dragster with me, but it’s not sounding good at this point. Looks like I’ll be enjoying that one with a stranger by my side.
