No, but it needs to make a comeback!

Yeah beer is good with burgers. It came up in coversation and nobody could remember the name. One of those can't get it off the mind things. But I had it wrong. It was Round The Corner and it was a phone on the table to order. In my head I mashed it up with another place.

You had me at beer and burger. ;-)

Glad you figured it out. There is a place in McAllen, TX called Taco Palenque that serves Taco Bell type food (only good), but they have chests of iced down beer on the counter. They also have a condiment bar with hot sauces, peppers, etc. This is what every Taco Bell should be.

Sadly the middle aged metabolism doesn't allow me many beers and burgers. All this came up as we were brain storming for Super Bowl grub ideas. It went from yay let's do burgers to but how can we make it low cal. I know it's just one day but damn I get tired of even thinking about it. Probably will order something to go from the local Thai place or head to the Asian market and grab paper thin sliced rib-eye and do something with that.

Forget middle aged metabolism, I had to stop drinking beer after age 25 as I was noticeably getting a miniature Randy belly. (trailer park boys)

Switched to whiskey, will never go back.

My downfall is sushi and beer. I can demolish a couple rolls of sushi in minutes and still be hungry for more.

Beer pairs good with just about everything. I like the Belgian places that recommend a beer for every menu item. If I was going to go down in flames for the day beignets and a "dirty ho" or two would be my poison (Hoegaarden and raspberry lambic).

Taco Bueno all over the DFW area, same deal. Truly fast food with beer

I'm heading to Dallas tomorrow to visit my sister for the weekend. It will be my first time being there for more than a layover. She raves about this place called Torchy's Tacos.

I've heard of it but never tried it. Fuzzy's Tacos is pretty good. I'm not into the Mexican food thing. Enjoy Big D!

I was at a Chipotle around Dayton last year that served beer. I just assumed they served beer in more places than NJ.

Yeah Chipotle near University of Dayton serves Margarita's and Mexican Beer. Not my preference.

I am flying Spirit because my wife found some crazy good deal. That being said, I wont be bringing my clubs with me. It's supposed to be rainy this weekend, but if I get the chance, I'm definitely going to catch a round and rent some clubs! Would be awesome!

Yes, they do here too, as does Freebirds (another burrito joint).

NJ is really tight with their liquor licenses, so you won't see fast food restaurants with them. The Chipotle in Ohio was a pleasant surprise.

Yeungling. Good stuff. I'm not a fan of Chipotle. I go to Hot Head Burritos since they're a locally owned chain (and better IMO). Let us know if you're ever in Dayton again.

    • Interesting turns to this conversation.  I've read and reread the OP's post and it seems that he is asking a couple of things, for example in the original question, i.e. does shortening a 5i to 7i length have major changes on the club such as lie angle, swing weight, etc.  It begs to ask, do the manufacturers "build" clubs to have the same swing "feel", so that your swing feels the same whether its a 5i - 7i - 4h - PW, where the only real adjustment is knowing that the swing plane shifts slightly based on the varying club lengths which is what the latter part of the OP's post seemed to ask.  For me, I know that I am, based on the static fitment charts such as Ping's, that I need clubs that are 1/2" shorter w/standard lie.  In the same respect if I do take and put tape 1" down on the hand from the butt end and use that as my gauge for gripping the club, I swing straighter with more carry.  The clubs make better contact all around.   One thing I have wondered - does taking a 7i that is 36* loft and shortening the shaft by 1" which would make it in effect a 36* deg loft 9i?  (referencing Tommy Armour 845s Silver Scots here)  I know its still technically a 7i w/a shorter shaft.  To be honest I work off the loft of the irons (which is why I love the TA 845s as the lofts are stamped in the club face) rather than the number stamped in the bottom.   FYI - I have already been using drivers that have shafts shortened from 45.5 to 44.5 and can tell you I have a better sense of feel and control.   wt   
    • I agree.  I am using an Alta CB 55 (SR) and get excellent loft.  The. soft regular may be too flexible for you; go back to your fitter and tell them they got it wrong.  It does happen  
    • I started out with a bag of hand me downs, mostly MacGregor. I played them for almost 6 years, only changed my putter.   In 1975, I finally got my first set of new clubs.  I settled on on set from Wilson. I am very glad I got "basic" golf down before I bought them.  Not a lot of options from most brands. Blades only, steel shafts and not much on the basic market of items such as the 30 options I choose from for new grips.  Price was average for the time ($275.00). If I were new to golf today, I would go try out some clubs.  Then, I would do my best to find a most similar set on many of the sites that deal in used cubs. A phone class my even get you some good advice.
    • Never had a problem in ANY of my dealings with them  
    • I started with a set of Spalding clubs, full set from K-Mart for a few hundred dollars years and years ago, (couldn't afford anything else with family and a low salary at the time). I look at them now and wonder how I ever hit them but they got me hooked on the game. As my salary increased I was able to save up and buy better clubs. Now a days there are tons of 2nd hand clubs available, just look on Ebay. There probably were 2nd hand clubs available when I started but who knew. I agree with most above that you don't need the expensive clubs to start, hell you may not need them going forward either.  Talk to your local Pro Shop, they probably have a set for you or can get you hooked up with someone who does. I for example have probably three sets of clubs in my garage, (not including the Spaldings), that I would gladly part with just to clean my garage out. Just wish I knew someone who could put them to good use. I have 11 putters for example, who needs 11 putters!!
