That’s a Half of a Yard. Of Beer.

Can you hear the choirs of angels singing?

Yard House is quite possibly one of the best restaurants on the west coast, and a significant factor in my decision to move here.  For you Atlantans (or ATLiens), imagine Taco Mac.  Now imagine Taco Mac with good food.  Now imagine a Taco Mac with good food next to the water serving you beer by the “half-yard.”  Yes, friends, that’s a glass that’s 18 inches tall!  I’ll leave you to whisper to each other about why you’ve never heard of such a thing and grind your teeth about how you’ve never been here before.  I’m sure I’ll end up writing a full-fledged review of the place at some point, so I’ll avoid the spoilers.

  1. I envy you and that pretty young lady in the picture. 37 degrees in Atlanta today. Remember our first beer together @ Myrtle Beach? Enjoy southern Cal. Hope you’re both doing great. Here’s lookin at ya!

    • Thanks, but don’t be too envious–it gets chilly at night, especially near the beach. Of course I remember that first father-son beer bonding: The Bowery at Myrtle Beach, where they serve both kinds of beer: Bud AND Bud Light (that’s a classy joint). Kinda sad that Myrtle Beach has just lost its lustre, but then again, so have a lot of beach communities. Maybe they’ll see a renaissance like the towns in SoCal have. Then again, the economy here is much more varied than it is on most of the Atlantic and Gulf coasts.
