    Nobody pays attention in the daytime too, cross at crosswalks and look both ways.

    ^ What are these "crosswalks" of which you speak?

    It's the largest impressionist collection in the US, pulled together by a set of sisters in the early part of the 20th c. As pointed out, though, much of it is on tour his year. However, BMA does have a cool exhibit that shows how the paintings were displayed in the Cone sisters' apartment during their collecting years. If you go, try to hit it Weds-Sat and grab an awesome lunch at Gertrude's out in the sculpture garden. Lots of local farm-to-table stuff; solid crab cakes.

    David London is a friend of mine, ergo my rec as well. ;)

    That reminds me. Natty Boh is indeed an excellent beer.

    ^My favorite beer (though I'm not a fan of beers, liquor's quicker). It's cheap, gets you drunk, and after the first can, you can't really taste it anymore (I'm not a fan of the beer taste).

    I think you exaggerate. It's a drinkable beer.

    Thank you. I like it, but it's certainly not excellent.

    I work in the Natty Boh Tower, so I get to see Mr. Boh's giant head every single day during my walk to the office.

    I like Natty Boh, but its not as great as some others.

    When i was stationed in Germany the local brewery in Darmstadt made some outstanding brews. My favorite was the Darmstadter Export and the Heffeweisen.

    Man I wished they imported that stuff to the US. I miss it so much!

    Boh does what it does better than pretty much any other beer that attempts to do what it does - i.e., cost $2.00 on draft ($8.99 for a 12 pack!) and not taste like complete piss. It prevents e from ever having to drink a PBR, Miller anything, Bud anything, or Coors anything when I need to go down to a cheaper/more reasonably alcoholic beer. For which I am grateful.

    There are...much better beers out there obviously.

    Best regards from the Land of Pleasant Living.

    You couldn't buy lemonade for $2.00 a pint in a British pub nowadays. In fact the cheapest beer at my local pub is £3.50 a pint now ($5.60).

    Although they don't stock anything as low rent as Yeungling or Natty Boh. :p
