Monks Rock!

The General Manager of Westmalle was in the restaurant today. Our Senior VP of Brewing Operations introduced me to him. What a life! GM of one of the seven existing Belgium breweries that still involve trappist monks on site in the brewing process. He brought in a couple of 750ml bottles of their Dubbel and Triple to sample. Great stuff, great guys, great beer...Prost!

    I was at the yardhouse in vegas at 2:30 am Does that count as "the morning." What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
