possible Beer Night locations

Thinking back over our several beer nights, I can remember:

- The Irish Hound
- Marg's (though this was margaritas, not beer, I say close enough)
- The Cheeky Monk
- Vine St. Pub

All were good, and we should go again. But I'm also wondering what else we should try. Today drove past the Bar Car on Colorado Blvd. and thought hmm, always wondered what that was like. Anyone been there? Any nominations for other places?

The Most Important What If...

Sure, counterfactual history is cool.  What if Hitler died in a bunker in the Great War, what if the lost order hadn't been found....and so forth.  But who really cares, when we have "What if the Star Wars Prequels had Actually Been Good?"

This one's for you, Seth.  Sorry you couldn't make it.

Welcome to the Boy Book Club Blog

Books may be all low tech, with paper and everything, but that is no reason that BBC can't be super trendy.  You know, just like the kids, with their technoimplants and loud music and whatnot.  I have noticed a trend, that after each time we get together, we all send links back and forth of funny stuff we have seen, etc.  So, I'm going to try a BBC blog, which you will all be able to post to, to see how that goes.  More discussion at the meeting this week.
