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).

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.

The one I went to had Yeungling.


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.

    • Day 170.  I got home way too late, but remembered the challenge so I'm doing some of UGP's stretches.  Probably good given how little I moved today.  (Incidentally, earlier today I saw my future golf room for the first time, better than the previous one!  Ten days until setup!)
    • Almost always putt. Either with my putter or a club from PW-7 iron using the same putting stroke depending the pin location and grass condition. 
    • Yeah you must’ve missed that. It was posted earlier by @fredf then reposted by @Missouri Swede.
    • This is good stuff and interesting to hear from someone that plays on such big greens. I have never had that luxury/challenge, depending on the green. I find it so interesting that some people love partial shots (could be full swing but reduced power), and others don't want any part of it. For me, in that same situation of 100 yards with back edge at 110, this is how I would take it. Full shots are 80-85 yards for 53o, 95-100 yards for PW, 110 yards for 9I. I would almost always take a 9I into this green, unless there is serious trouble long. A 85-95% 9 iron is going to leave me on the green almost all of the time, barring L-R miss. If I hit it super pure, or I have some extra adrenaline pumping, I'm over for sure, but close. If it is sloping toward the back, then its a pitching wedge, and an almost certain downhill putt, but that's the nature of the beast. I use a Garmin approach S20, which is fairly basic, but has done a really good job of telling me center, front and back of the greens when I have played. When I know the pin layout for the day, I do cater to that, but if I have any doubt, or it is scary at all, I play for the center
    • I have gone through the replies and the main claim is 'Serious misconduct'. I get that but it seems like a grey area. open to interpretation.  I can't find any section of the rules that describe the scenario that i provided and the rules are very specific in terms of objects, balls hit, touched, where participants stand, act etc. There are other reasons the said example could count as legitimate play. Perhaps Player B is putting away from the hole because he wants an easier uphill putt to finish the hole. Also if  Player B's ball is directly opposite Player A's ball and putts it pass the hole and just pass his partners mark it is an over hit and the putt coming back is going to show the line for the next putt. Misconduct or inherent part of the game. Have we lost the freedom to decide on the direction of the next stroke. NB. The 4BBB I am referring to would be part of a Team Stableford competion. So there is no conceding putts involved.   Ahhh I have found some clarity. Point 7.  1.2a/1 - Meaning of Serious Misconduct The phrase “serious misconduct” in Rule 1.2a is intended to cover player misconduct that is so far removed from the expected norm in golf that the most severe sanction of removing a player from the competition is justified. This includes dishonesty, deliberately interfering with another player’s rights, or endangering the safety of others. The Committee must determine if the misconduct is serious considering all the circumstances. Even if the Committee determines that the misconduct is serious, it may take the view that it is more appropriate to warn the player that a repeat of the misconduct or similar misconduct will result in disqualification, instead of disqualifying him or her in the first instance. Examples of actions by a player that are likely to be considered serious misconduct include: Deliberately causing serious damage to a putting green. Disagreeing with the course setup and taking it on himself or herself to move tee-markers or boundary stakes. Throwing a club towards another player or spectator. Deliberately distracting other players while they are making strokes. Removing loose impediments or movable obstructions to disadvantage another player after that other player has asked him or her to leave them in place. Repeatedly refusing to lift a ball at rest when it interferes with another player in stroke play. Deliberately playing away from the hole and then towards the hole to assist the player’s partner (such as helping the player’s partner learn the break on the putting green). Deliberately not playing in accordance with the Rules and potentially gaining a significant advantage by doing so, despite incurring a penalty for a breach of the relevant Rule. Repeatedly using vulgar or offensive language. Using a handicap that has been established for the purpose of providing an unfair advantage or using the round being played to establish such a handicap. Examples of actions by a player that, although involving misconduct, are unlikely to be considered serious misconduct include: Slamming a club to the ground, damaging the club and causing minor damage to the turf. Throwing a club towards a golf bag that unintentionally hits another person. Carelessly distracting another player making a stroke.
