Dallas seems to come out of the woodwork every now and then and surprise me with a beer. This time she got in touch with me through the website and bought me whatever my little heart desired. I took her up on the offer and got myself a pint of Harp last night, while I played sub on my friend's bocce ball league.

First of all, it was coooooold outside. the temp read about -15 when I woke up in the morning, and it certainly hadn't warmed up much. It took everything I could muster to get myself all bundled up to make it down to Half Time Rec for the Bocce game.

I had never seen this bocce court before, basically it was a couple strips of dirt in a dingy bar basement. paint chipping off the walls and rafters held up with beams and jacks. I really really loved it, and I'm tempted to smash out the concrete in my own basement to build on. I rolled my little heart out that night, powered by the malty goodness of Harp, but Unfortunately we lost to the worst team in the league. (they were 0-9 until they beat us!). All is good though, because I made some friends, and got an official invite to come back and sub anytime they needed somebody.

A side note. frozen pizza goes excellent with a pint of Harp. (make sure to unfreeze it in an oven first though)
