Root beer float without the root

Yesterday afternoon I got some Sudafed and brought my allergies under control, at least to some degree. Feeling better, I headed to the Flying Saucer for Pint Nite.

The waitresses were all oohing and aahing at an advance copy of the Saucer’s new menu. Since I’m on friendly terms with them (well, almost all of them) they gave me a peek.

One of the items is a variation on a root beer float, but without the “root.” It’s chocolate ice cream and Young’s Double Chocolate beer. Ummm. Beer and ice cream. I don’t know how I feel about that. I guess I’ll keep an open mind and give it a try though.

They also have Buffalo Bill’s Pumpkin Ale back in stock, in bottles. That was one of my favorites last year. Of course, I didn’t drink one last night because it’s sacrilege to order bottled beer on Pint Nite. I’ll have one tonight when I go back for trivia night though. Seasonal pumpkin ales make me wish it could be Halloween/Thanksgiving season year ’round.

Time to pop a Sudafed and turn myself into Crackhead Paul and head to work. I have more stuff to post, so look for a lunchtime update.
