    You're in luck. There are TWO Skyline Chili outlets in the vicinity.

    Don’t really think we have anyone on the board from that area. Just go to the Sands and get drunk.

    Which B1G state had the weirdest deep fried item at their state fair?

    My bet is on Wisconsin.

    I’ve heard very good things about Prime steakhouse but personally have never eaten there. I do regularly go the Sands casino. How many nights are you in town.

    musikfest is great sight seeing if you want to walk around with an overpriced beer. It also makes traffic a nightmare in Bethlehem which makes telling you where to go more challenging. They literally close streets down so closest you might be able to park is literally a mile away.

    In town but may be a challenge to get to.

    Tapas on main
    Apollo grill
    Social still
    Thai Thai 2

    Out of the shit.
    Check out promenade shops (center valley) area, 5-6 good places to eat there, easy to get to. Melt, white orchid, kome and some Latin place are all good. Bar Louise is there as well if you’re looking for a bar to watch a game.

    Blue grill house
    Bayou

    Enjoy, the best part of your trip will probably be leaving.

    Goose just perused the thread. my favorite food to go out and get is at Casa Toro in Coopersburg. They have a Cuban cheesesteak that’s fucking dynamite. Their fries are garbage but that cheesesteak and beer can’t be beat in my book. Shouldn’t be more than a 15 minute ride easy to get to.

    next time you go, try to check out a show at The Bishop or Bluebird. They get pretty decent shows with Jagjaguwar, Dead Oceans and Secretly Canadian all based there and the Jacobs School being such a mecca for musicians. Landlocked Music is a must-stop. Wonderful record shop

    - Siam House on 4th St for Thai food :ohgosh: For a midwestern college town, 4th St has an insane offering of ethnic food
    - Mother Bear's for pizza
    - BuffaLouie's for wings

    for drinking:

    Nick's English Hut
    Video Saloon
    Upstairs Pub
    Kilroy's on Kirkwood
    Kilroy's Sports
    Irish Lion Pub
    Upland Brewing Company

    hopefully you got to tour the campus. It's up there with UVA for my favorite

    Went to BuffaLouie's, Nick's, Kilroy's, and Upland off of your list.

    Unfortunately didn't get to tour much of the campus. Opted to post up at Nick's before the game and then walk to the stadium.

    Game atmosphere isn't great but Bloomington was a lot of fun. I'd go back.

    I just had a couple M-43 and I may had gotten a bad batch or I may agree with you. I may be wrong. What is your pick for best Michigan beer?
     
  31. Heesu

    Heesu Guest

    M43 is fine, I’m just not a huge fan of the style (and think m43 is basically just a solid version of it).

    In terms of best? I have no idea. I guess shorts freedom of 78 isn’t favorite. I really like bells oracle, and hopslam too.

    A buddy brought a bunch of Kuhnhenn beers back to Chicago and I was impressed. Dark Horse Plead the Fifth is my favorite though

    I've really jumped on the hazy/new england IPA bandwagon, but today I wasn't as enamored as I usually am with the M-43. Hopslam was a lot better in '19 than it was in '18.

    I like Bell's Expedition Stout a lot, and Short's Bellaire Brown is great, but they're colder weather beers.

    Two Hearted might be the gold stardard.

    I don't know about that. Looks terrible and very plain.

    On the other hand, if in DC metro area try Kitfo at one of Ethiopian restaurants in the area. DC Metro is home to a large Ethiopian population. Multiple good restaurants to pick from. If you haven't had Ethiopian food before, some restaurants serve "family style" if you ask and you can try multiple dishes for a set price (may not be the menu).

    Is that just ground beef? If so, that is food poisoning in a sandwich (and I really like beef tartare).
