That’s a Half of a Yard. Of Beer.

Can you hear the choirs of angels singing?

Yard House is quite possibly one of the best restaurants on the west coast, and a significant factor in my decision to move here.  For you Atlantans (or ATLiens), imagine Taco Mac.  Now imagine Taco Mac with good food.  Now imagine a Taco Mac with good food next to the water serving you beer by the “half-yard.”  Yes, friends, that’s a glass that’s 18 inches tall!  I’ll leave you to whisper to each other about why you’ve never heard of such a thing and grind your teeth about how you’ve never been here before.  I’m sure I’ll end up writing a full-fledged review of the place at some point, so I’ll avoid the spoilers.

  1. I envy you and that pretty young lady in the picture. 37 degrees in Atlanta today. Remember our first beer together @ Myrtle Beach? Enjoy southern Cal. Hope you’re both doing great. Here’s lookin at ya!

    1. Thanks, but don’t be too envious–it gets chilly at night, especially near the beach. Of course I remember that first father-son beer bonding: The Bowery at Myrtle Beach, where they serve both kinds of beer: Bud AND Bud Light (that’s a classy joint). Kinda sad that Myrtle Beach has just lost its lustre, but then again, so have a lot of beach communities. Maybe they’ll see a renaissance like the towns in SoCal have. Then again, the economy here is much more varied than it is on most of the Atlantic and Gulf coasts.
