Do any of you ever venture up to my neck of the woods for Victoria Gastropub?

If you mean that you're going to the Phone Booth for the games, you're out of out luck. No alcohol is served at NCAA Tourney events. :dagger

It's an old NCAA rule that bans alcohol at any site for championship events. They also have to hide any signs/ads that advertise alcohol.

No beer + Aramark concessions = horror.

Yeah, I mean the tournament here in DC.  That's bad news indeed.  Thanks for the heads up!

the only good food in the arena is the BBQ place on the first level, great sweet potato fries

There are two Rustico's in VA, Arl. and North Old Town.
I didn't notice it at Alex. the other day. But I really didn't get past Nugget Nectar and Thornbridge on cask.

Ha...I only realized that over the weekend.  I used to frequent the Old Town location; came as quite a surprise when I saw a second location.

$20 is a decent price for KBS - its 22.99 at Rodmans and even higher at other places

I saw at ChurchKey last night and asked about KBS and the bartender said:

"You know what?  Our beer director likes to hold on to new things for a while, before rolling them out. If I had to guess?  It'll probably be a month or so before we tap that.""

How's that for a whopper of a lie? Probably a former Bush administration employee.


i'm not going tonight, but my wife did pick up a four pack earlier today. $20. Ouch.

I can't find KBS anywhere. Rodman's and Chevy Chase were sold out. Found out they were serving bottles at The Black Squirrel only to find out they ran out before I got there.

Blergh.
