    The chicken pot pie is a top 5 bham dish for me. It’s definitely the best meat and three in the metro.

    I took some out of town coworkers there last night. It was my first time and we got drunk and put on costumes. I even applied a temporary tat to my neck which was a major pain in the ass to get off this morning. We were all hungover as shit today.

    Did Breakout followed by Gianmarco’s before going to Atomic. It was a fun night and also my first time to do Breakout, which was also really fun. Our team got out in 44min which was about 10mins better than the next closest team from our company :smug:

    yes, i know, this is a really stupid question.

    i need a haircut and have no idea where to get one. the entirety of my adult life has been spent no guard shaving and then letting it grow until i decide to shave it again. so, where do people get haircuts?

    Clay at Vestavia Barber shop on 31 by Mark’s Outdoors cuts my hair and does a really good job IMO. I, too, shaved my head for about 10yrs until a couple years ago. There are several barbers in there and I feel they all do a good job.

    While I enjoy this bit I feel like I should note in earnest that when I moved to Mtn Brook in 9th grade one of the first conversations I had was some dude explaining to me “the difference between black people and n words” (with him obviously using the actual word)

    It was a bleak sign of things to come

    There were two huge tvs on either side of the bar and they played soccer, cycling, auto racing, and a bunch of other shit nobody came there to watch. It didn't bother me, but obviously it wasn't a draw.

    they were inside and exclusively showed european sports (and were extremely cunty if you asked to turn on basketball for instance), save for saturdays when they would show cfb

    so i guess they're just not gonna have TVs now except on saturdays (maybe a projector?) or just not turn them on? idk

    edit: got wes tegg 'd and also after rereading it seems as though they'll have the TVs still there just not turned to sports except for cfb saturdays

    I guess I should say seems silly to draw a hard line on only showing cfb....like in the spring March Madness...etc

    You're 100% correct. Very predictably, they missed the entire point.

    I had a client in town for a mediation on Tuesday and took him to Carrigan's Monday night. Immediately, I noticed him looking around for TV's.

    As a dad* I am more offended by your suggestion that I should move to Hoover than I am by Brat Brot becoming 21 and up. Brat Brot becoming adults only is A-Ok with me. You, however, can fuck right off.

    That concept at Brat Brot still sounds like a mess to me.
