AFH, AFHk, and Friends. (A Map!)

Post by infern0 » Mon Feb 09, 2009 10:02 pm

To help facilitate random local meets, or otherwise familiarising each other with ourselves, I present... A MAP! As more people are added, we may add some additional filtering or colour coordination.

To be added to the map post, PM, kmail, etc, the following information:
(1) Player id and player name
(2) Home / primary clan
(3) Name, address & brief description of a local establishment you enjoy.

I do not expect (nor want!) your personal address or phone number, rather places you'd like to share with the rest of the world. Additionally, if there are any notes you'd like added about this place, please note so accordingly. Ideally the places are close enough that someone visiting an area could say "Oh hey, player X is in this city, we could totally do their recommendation and visit place Y!".

I hope to visit some of you at your local favourites in the near future!

My poor college student self rarely frequents the bars/nice restaurants in town. Therefore, my favorite local hangout is...

Borders
335 Howe Avenue
Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44221

It has a pleasant little cafe that I hang out at 2/3 times a week for coffee and study time. Also, there's plenty of food and shopping within a very close proximity, so it doubles for convenience.

Nothing exciting on the menu (unless you fancy XXL size Schnitzels) but there's only few places you can see people at 8 a.m. having their after work beer and booze. Yes, they really come from work around that time.

I third this as absolutely delish. Small spencer medium rare, yum yum. (The small spencer is their ribeye, and small is huge).

Completely agree that Imo's is totally, outrageously, completely over-rated. I didn't grow up in St. Louis, so perhaps I don't "get it". But to me, pizza is not "cracker thin crust + provel cheese + sausage, cut into squares".

If only it was just provolone...provel is some insane concoction of provolone + swiss + possibly some other cheese (wiki says cheddar, some people say mozzarella, I thought I heard it was just the first two). If you weren't born in the St. Louis area, you abhor it, but if you were born here, you might've been brain-washed to think it's edible. It's the primary reason I am afraid to go to Italian restaurants, as many will sub this in to dishes (i.e. chicken parm).

I like that you two both picked places that I see commercials for all the time, yet have never actually seen a restaurant.

I would totally met anyone here for a beer (or several). ~500 beers in the bottle (from Stag to Belgians beers), and 40 on tap. But the draughts change really, really frequently (except Guiness...Guiness is always on tap for some reason).

If you're on a Teet run, we can do Merb's thing and get custard at Ted Drewe's.

I'm in Atlanta, but I'd send you five miles or so east of me to

The Brick Store Pub
125 East Court Square
Decatur, GA

Fabulous beer list, a Belgian tap room upstairs, good pub food, sidewalk tables in a hipster part of town, and just the right distance from home to stop for a beer toward the end of a bike ride. Though the bike part probably wouldn't apply to visiting folks.

I live in Franklin, OH, but consider myself a Cincinnatian, since there's nothing in Franklin.

The Bistro
413 Vine Street
Cincinnati, OH 45202

A little upscale - they have fantastic food, and always have a good list of beers on tap. Last time I went, this included beers such as Dogfishhead 90 minute IPA and Palo Santo Marron, LaChouffe (a Belgian), and a bunch that I forget, including Dark Horse, Bells, and Left Hand.

Also awesome - and cheaper, and more down-to-earth (although it's a chain spanning most of Ohio as well as some other places) - is Dewey's pizza - they have fantastic pizzas, and also always have a great tap list that rotates quite frequently, so that I usually get to try something new.

Approximately equally north and south from my house, respectively, i present for your consideration my two bars.

El Norte
13717 Lake City Way NE
Seattle WA 98125
Super tasty Mexican food, Mexican beer on tap, tasty cocktails (one of the bartenders likes to experiment; best so far was a ginger vodka + lemon + mint concoction), a back deck with flowers and blue Christmas lights for nice days, excellent music generally in the swing and Sinatra end of the spectrum. Dark and intimate; the owner is super gothy and has a DJ playing industrial and electronic music on full moons. One of the bartenders plays cribbage with us on slow nights! If it's a Tuesday night at the late end, I'm probably here.

Wedgwood Ale House
8515 35th Avenue NE
Seattle WA 98115
Straight up delicious bar food, with daily specials that are absolutely worth ordering every time. Fantastic bacon. About 20 beers on tap at all times, and they're all good (wine and cocktails as well, but not as good). Spire Dark & Dry Cider on permatap and I drink it like water. Almost always soul and motown on the stereo. My brother calls it an "old people Wedgwood bar" but I love it (as does he, as they don't give him the stinkeye for getting Cokes instead of beers, and it's a bar you can talk at). Nearly every Wednesday night I am here!

Wow. Two people around where I live. As in, same zip code.

I know where the bars you speak of are, but I've never been inside them. I'm not a big fan of bars, or restaurants, but if there is a Chicago-area meet-up of AFH/AFHk/friends/provisional clan members, I could stop being so darn cheap.

For lack of anything better to offer, the establishment I frequent the most is:

Chicago Public Library, Sulzer Regional Branch
4422 N Lincoln
Chicago, IL

But I recognize any meetup would be somewhere less talky.

I fit two of those criteria, if they're loosely defined. And yeah, I love Hopleaf. :P Great food, great beer list.

Great beer list, unless you're looking for some kind of lager, or something under $6/pint. Then you're out of luck.

3) The bars around here are all crappy, but Taj Okinawa (544-5 Kokutai-Kinen Rd, Chatan-Cho, Okinawa Prefecture, Japan) has awesome Indian food, and handily kicks the asses of the local curries. :thumbs: Also, the beaches here on Oki are pretty nice, I'm told. You should all come visit.

Yes please! I travelled Japan with friends at the end of last year, and loved it.

Only got as far south as Nagasaki though, island hopping is a must-do for next time (unfortunately unlikely for a while for monetary reasons, and wanting to experience hanami and visiting Himeji castle when it isn't covered up by a huge tarp ><).

Also: will update this weekend, sorry for the delay all

A couple of them in fact. Both the boys and the girls seem to be going deep into playoffs every year (when they aren't winning it all).

The bar I mentioned above is next to where I study, but I live near:
The Hare
Langton Rd
Royal Tunbridge Wells
TN3 0JA

which is a very nice gastro-pub. Although the food isn't cheap, it's very good quality and there's always a good selection of beers on offer.
