Haha, thanks man, I would love that. It's long been a dream of mine (like a retirement dream) to own a little breakfast shop that also serves beer (or is a brewery). A few years ago I went to this breakfast place in my hometown (before I was vegan), and had breakfast a few days in a row. I noticed how zen the line cook appeared as he made everything; and I was jealous.
The sour beer fest was awesome, and featured one of the barrel aged specialists from New Belgium Brewing Co.; this lady named Lauren Salazar. She was really knowledgeable about beer, and exceedingly passionate about her career. That is so refreshing to me for some reason. It's great to see someone totally lost in what they are doing, and not be jaded by shortcomings. Maybe I can be more like that if I surround myself with people who hold the same beliefs? Something to work toward.
Anyhow, came home and ate some peanuts, almonds, and a handfull of vegan chocolate chips. At the event I probably had a total of 4 beers, so roughly 800-1000 calories, plus some appetizers (crackers, mustard, grilled veggies, pickles), so in all, I'd say about an extra 1500 calories today. That makes about 2600 cals for the day, and no exercise (although I did manage about 20 pullups). That's enough for tonight... Inglorious Basterds is on the TV, and I wanna watch. One last thing... I noticed how they had a very veggie-centric offering tonight; despite also having "cold cuts" of meat available (gross, just gross). I couldn't help but think about how much more awesome it would have been if everyone there were also vegan.
