Another Tennessee Saturday Night

Remember in my last post when I said I was caught up with all my posts? I lied! I forgot about a beer and have added 3 more to the list.  Maybe I’m moving too fast? NEVER!  Anyway… I drove up to Chatt to support the Glamourlyke kids at Riverbend, see the Beach Boys and try some local beer.  Only one of the three turned out well…

 The Place: Taco Mac, Downtown Chattanooga

The Peeps: Toya S., Tanayo(sp) T., Turtle W.

The Beer: #96 Big River Chatt Steamer (ABV 4.2%)

Umm… Where do I start?  I was very disappointed in my first Chatt beer.  It was a below average amber ale with a lot of carbonation.  I tasted more fizz from the carbonation than actual flavor.  I could taste faint flavors of hops and malt, but I could just be making that up.  Side Thumb.  You can do better Chatt! 

Now let me crank it up on Taco Mac real quick!  I didn’t think it was possible to have a WTF moment at a Taco Mac.  WRONG!  Since when is it ok for a waitress to leave someone else’s dirty dishes at your table to help another customer? Did I miss something? As a matter of fact, I think I’m stilling waiting for her to bring me a water.  I try to be a fair tipper, but ya girl got no love from our table that night.  On a better note, I found out from the Taco Mac menu that Star Hill The “Love” Wheat is a Hefeweizen made in Virginia.  Other than that nothing good came from that experience.

High Fives and Shout Outs

  1. Glamourlyke for doing putting on an awesome show at Riverbend.  If I would have paid to get in I would have gotten money’s worth.
  2. Whoever is responsible for Super Corndogs.  Marry me.
  3. My sweet cousin for giving up his Riverbend pin for the night.  You save me $25!

Blank Stares and WTFs

  1. The Beach Boys for not playing ANY of my jams while I was at Riverbend.  Would have killed you to play Surfing USA, Help Me Rhonda, or California Girls?  I’m thinking about boycotting the show at Cobb Energy Center in September.
  2.  Myself for messing up the beer count for a second time.  I’ve got to do better.
