After work Emily and I walked to Hough’s in Greenfield for dinner. If you haven’t had the Cowboy Mike burger there, you haven’t lived. Also had an Otter Creek Alpine Black IPA on draft which was pretty good and went well with the meal.
Stopped for ice cream at the Rialto Pizza at the corner of Greenfield and Ronald (at the end of the Greenfield Bridge). Despite the claim on their sign they do not have the best soft serve in the city. So far in my book that honor goes to Weiner World downtown.
Still fighting with driver performance. Moving buffers around did not have the desired effect. Running low on options and time, as customer has a looming factory deadline. Have to look at DMA settings and see if some improvements can be made there.
Home then out to dinner. Tried the new How Lee. It was much more crowded than I ever saw it in its previous incarnation, which might be explained by the transformation of the food from “random greasy Chinese-ish food” to “only sort of greasy Chinese food that maybe had some thought and effort behind it”. Also some may have been there to view the men’s room artwork.
Returned to the Squirrel Cage (a.k.a. Squirrel Hill Cafe, a.k.a. the bar I frequented throughout my early-to-mid-20s) for the first time in a few years. It’s one of the few bars that still allows smoking, which is why I’d been gone so long. It’s still smoky, but the beer selection is still solid. Unfortunately for it there are now moreoptions with equal or better selections and no smoke. Maybe I’ll try again in a few years.
