A beautiful day out here in California - should hit around 64 degrees - strange for mid February. Nevertheless, I've retreated to the Pinhead Studios for a bit of Pinball and Stout. Opened up a Samuel Smith Organic Chocolate Stout this afternoon to go with a game of Target Pool. Really intense Milk Chocolate flavors in this one. I love their Oatmeal Stout - I call it a Meal in a Bottle as it is nice and hearty. This one is Dessert in a Bottle. In fact, I'll be corking up the remainder to have after dinner with some leftover Valentines Day chocolates. Highly recommended if you are in the mood for a Sweet Stout.
Had the pleasure of attending the Bay Area Record Fair yesterday afternoon and had a blast. The highlights for me:
1 - Digging through the 45 boxes under the Alternative Tentacles table and finding some Gems. Now, a sign hanging off the table stated that this was stuff from Jello Biafra's record collection! Picked up a mint copy of the Ghastly Ones EP and a nice Rocket From the Crypt bootleg. Two bucks a piece - I think they were a bargain.
3 - Some great swag was given away by the record labels - pins, stickers, coupons, etc. Love it!
