How do I stack up on twitter? Infographic showdown

Infographics of me vs @tcar, me vs. @beattyj, and me vs @evo_terra. Due to Evo’s popularity and social media presence I thought it would be interesting.  In any case,  a fun little twitter bug. I like how it knows I like beer. And that it thinks Jason is a rapper. HAHAHA

The infographics after the jump. Continue reading How do I stack up on twitter? Infographic showdown

Photo 138: Wine

Sarah and I ate lunch at Cooper’s Hawk today, it was yummy.  I think the red wine made a better photo than the white wine. At the same time, I like the clarity of the image projected through the white wine. And who doesn’t love an endless field of chocolate-covered strawberries.

This is the my second version of this post.  The first one I was using a flickr plugin for wordpress, but that experiment went no where. Anyone have a flickr plugin they like?  Bonus points if it integrates with the wordpress featured image functionality.

RE Tech Rocks DC

Get ready, I’m going to start to use flickr a lot more, I just upgraded my flickr account to a pro account.  Here’s my first attack against you visually, the photos I took at the “RE Tech Rocks DC” event the other night where non-other than good friend and boss Mark Lesswing performed on his acoustic bass.

(BTW, the above if a flash based slideshow from flickr…sorry iPad users, but I’m experimenting with flickr.)

Must visit bar review and Photo 80: The Meddlesome Moth

Today I went with some people to The Meddlesome Moth in Dallas.  Its a damn shame I discovered this place on my last night here instead of my first, otherwise I would have just been there every day as much as possible.  The image for today is of the first flight I ordered which was called “Captain Keith.” The flight is named after their Beer Guru Keith Schlabs, but I had to order it for obvious reasons.

As a beer lover, the place is fantastic.  The beer selection is large with 25 or so on tap and 100 or so for a selection of bottles. (I’m doing those numbers from memory, but if I’m wrong, I’m pretty close.)  Keith Schlabs came out and talked to us for bit. They have contacts all over the country so they’ve got a lot of the great microbrews from Stone to Dogfish Head to Allagash to everything in between. They also work hard to represent great microbrews made in Texas. In fact, they have a flight of Texas beers which lead us to discover (512)’s Peacan Porter from Austin which tasted great and I consider the beer find of the day.

Keith also shared they’ve been open for about a year and are really serious about exposing people to good beer.  That’s something I can really get behind.  It helps that their wait staff was also extremely knowledgeable about the beer they were serving and could make excellent suggestions. Also, in talking to the staff they were knowledge about about the beer world in general even if they don’t have it on the menu. I love that sign of passion about what they are doing.

They also have an amazing menu which I think would make many foodies join the dance of joy the beer lovers were already doing.  Since we were just snacking we had two small things: The Hungry Farmer, which was a fantastic cheese and meat plate, and the Sweet Fennel Meatballs, which were out of this world.  If the rest of their food is even half as good as what we had you can do no wrong.

As I mentioned on Twitter earlier today: If you love beer and you are in Dallas and you do not go to The Meddlesome Moth, I loath you.

Bonus images because, hey, the place was that awesome and worth it.
