The menu for dinner this Saturday.
I think I'll start with the Duck Soup (Marx!)
Smoked Scallops or the pot-pie? tough call. The Saison is superb...
Salad's a toss-up. hah!
Entree, I have no clue. they all sound so scrumptious, and the Tiger Bite is a phenomenal (and rare) beer.
Desert, molten chocolate cake if I'm not stuffed, Amber ice cream if I am.
oh goodness, I just can't wait!

Scotch Ale should never come in a teardrop glass
I agree, but I'll forgive them their little pomposities.
oh my.... that sounds absolutely amazing!
personally, I'd go:
Pearl Barley and roasted duck
1/2 pint of Bitchin Bitter
Smoked scallops with bitter greens and lobster sauce
tulip glass of Golden Ring
Warmed radicchio, spinach, endive salad with gorgonzola cheese, pine nuts and balsamic syrup
1/2 pint of Amber Ale
(The Arugula looked more interesting but I wouldn't want to follow 1 citrus with another citrus and the halibut trumps both the fetuccine and the Ostrich.)
Roasted Halibut with sticky rice, Bok choy and
a wasabi & lemongrass broth
goblet of Tiger Bite
Molten chocolate cake
snifter of Bourbon Barrel Aged Barleywine
Bon apetit! Tell us all about it ad hoc, okay?
1. potato leek soup (duh, I love me some leeks)
2. whichever you don't get of scallops or pot pie (I'd rather eat both, but drink Saison)
3. Don't much care for the Ryder, so I'll have the warm spinach/endive/radicchio deal
4. I want all the beers and none of the food, thanks. =) We'll see if I can pass up the Tiger, but I sure as hell ain't ordering ostrich just to get cerise cassee. I might be convined to order the fettucine if you get the halibut and I can have a few sips of the Tiger.
5. No question, chocolate cake, although I liked the wine barrel barleywine better.
I'm strongly considering the Ostrich, so perhaps I'll get that and we can share the beers. ^_^
