Let your hair down, girl!

Last night I gave myself a vacation from moving and packing and cleaning and thinking about the apartment and went down to the new Hofbrauhaus to drink and carouse with friends. It’s sort of funny (and sad) that we’ve all barely seen one another this summer and now that one of us is moving away we suddenly hang out again. Better late than never, I suppose. Time goes so fast!

The draw of the Hof (it needs a hip, irreverent nickname…also, I’m lazy) is obviously the beer, but the beer hall atmosphere and German food was fun, too. We sat outside on the back porch, but just walking through the main hall was an experience in and of itself. I hear sitting inside is too loud to talk (and I believe it) and the porch had a roof and a nice view of downtown. Very pretty.

But anyway…the beer.

We are hardcore women, so we each got 2-3 liters (!!!), served in a heavy glass beer stien. I got the July special, Bohemian Pilsner. Pretty delicious. For an extra $8 you can buy a stien, so of course I did. It’s a huge hulking beast and I hope it doesn’t rip the kitchen cabinets out of the walls…

Anyway, hung out for about four hours, ate, laughed, talked, laughed some more, made plans to meet up again Sunday (we really just can’t say goodbye). It was a good night. Definitely worth feeling a little sleepy at work today.
