I have been inspired, no, that was not me you saw stumbling home last night, that was Lush Limbaugh.

Re: “First Draft with Sam Adams

@Carl - Your rants and [cough cough] jokes are becoming far too predictable. Maybe you need another outlet for your frustrations other than the Food & Drink section of the onlinve version of the Creative Loafing. I suggest crochet, akido, or finger painting. Or maybe join a book club? I hear yoga helps people relax too.

Re: “First Draft with Sam Adams

Hate to be cynical, I understand how important it is to cover the beers being served at local places people eat at and the people that buy the beer for these places but you seem to be working a formula CL.

In this great big city, there are millions of great stories, can we think outside the box just a little bit and write about something that will keep me reading this rag?

And, I do understand, this is a first draft story, I get it, but there has to be some great writers in this town submitting stories to your publication. Time to shake it up CL. PLEASE !! You listening?

Re: “First Draft with Sam Adams

Funny, I was reading this and thinking to myself, "Who wants a heavy IPA with pizza?"

Then I got to this line, "...Stella, Reissdorf Kölsch, and Ballast Point Longfin Lager are all that's safe."

They may have fancy names, but they are all regular yellow beers.

Re: “First Draft with Sam Adams

I decided I wanted to go watch the Braves play instead of go to college...LOL...and they say you need a college degree to get anywhere in life.

This is a great lesson for the kids, if your dream is to one day be the guy that buys the beer for a pizza place, you do not have to waste your time going to college. It can happen for you too.

Re: “First Draft with Kathy Davis

I'm very happy for Kathy's success, and I wish her the best for a prosperous future with the brewery. For the record, however, she was never my sous chef. We hired her right before we opened in 1999 to be our pastry chef, and she quit two weeks later having worked only a few days of actual business.

Re: “First Draft with John “J.R.” Roberts

downtown, huh?

LOL, is your point that people that visit strip clubs do not drink beer or eat food? Or vice versa?

I have probably not visited the Cheetah in at least 10 years but they certainly, at least back then, acted like they wanted my business unlike Max Lager's. But maybe that explains it, Max Lager's somehow knew that I have been to strip clubs in my life and informed their employees to ignore me and answer my questions with an attitude like I am bothering them as that level of service is what I most certainly deserved as a strip club visiting infidel.

But even with the bad service I would still give them my business being next door if their food was better. I can put up with less than average food if I get great service, I can also put up with bad service if I get great food.

With that said, maybe I will give them another chance soon, it has been many years, maybe things have changed since my last visit.

But, of course, according to you, Max Lager's doesn't really cater to the Cheetah crowd and I was thinking I might give them a visit too as it has been so long. Damn, the choices a man has to make.

By the way downtown, since Max Lager's doesn't really cater to the Cheetah crowd maybe you should hit social media, Yelp, etc and put the word out. Since so many of the men coming downtown for conventions and ball games and business deals give the Cheetah so much business those men should probably be warned that Max Lager's does not want their business.

I guess that was your point? On behalf of Max Lager's you want all human beings to know, if you go to the Cheetah or any club where people get naked, Max Lagers does not cater to your type, they do not want your business. I guess that is their right and I am sure they appreciate you getting the word out.

Re: “First Draft with John “J.R.” Roberts

I've always liked Max Lager's. Good food and beer. It's been around a long time but most locals don't know about it. I guess it's mainly convention people and downtown tourists.

Re: “First Draft with John “J.R.” Roberts

The beer is amazing. I love the variety and how often they change it up. The food is also very, very good. But, to each their own.

Re: “First Draft with John “J.R.” Roberts

Really Carl White - maybe you should stick with the Cheetah as you quoted in Quora

"but if I decide I need to see some ladies naked in exchange for dollar bills, The Cheetah is world class and the Clermont Lounge is world famous."

Max Lager's doesn't really cater to the Cheetah crowd. Good luck.

Re: “First Draft with John “J.R.” Roberts

I live right next door to Max Lager's, gave up on them years ago. Mediocre food, at best, rude service, just not a place that makes you feel like they care about your business. And these comments are based on multiple visits over a few years. Finally I just gave up.

I guess the convention traffic keeps them in business. And, to be fair, I am not a beer guy, maybe it kicks ass.

Re: “First Draft with Curt Dawsey

Seems like a nice enough guy though I have never understood people that spend so much time in bars.

I love bars but I think of them as more hit and run experiences.

Plus, I still do not understand the beard phenomenon. I am sure there are women to be found that like them but I have yet to meet them. They are itchy to have and just disgusting when it comes to food. Oh yeah, I did have pasta Friday. It can't be a cool and unique thing to do since cool and unique means not doing something that so many other people are doing.

When I see a bar full of guys with beards my first thought is of all the corporate people in suits and then I think of how every girl in the early 80's wore mostly pink. I guess people just have to fit in and a suit is a suit even when its a beard? If my theory is right, so sad and boring.

Every server I have ever had here is rude, surly, and looks like they are walking around with poopy diapers. Smile people!

I heard his beard is fake, like Brett Michaels hair. And that he's a closet Red Hare fan.

Re: “First Draft with John and Jennifer O’Connell

One of the things she said to me was that she wouldn't date anybody that drank lighter beer than she did...nice, you have to respect a woman that has standards.

And its so sweet to see in the picture that after all these years they are still such lovebirds.
