So which one are you going to?

Our plane back from cali lands at about 7:30pm that night. Sounds like just enough time to stop at Monks.

Bryan Kolesar said...

The Monk's event does sound worth the dough, doesn't it?!

Sounds like by the time you get through the cluster-eff that is PHL, you'll get to Monk's right around 11:30 ;-)

To answer your question, jury is still out on whether we're heading out on the town or doing a refrigerator cleanout on that night.

The Monk's dinner sounds great. Russian River and Cuvee De Tomme at the same dinner...nice. You have too many choices listed on the site. I have to say, bottle service at a brew pub sounds a bit odd to me.

We are probably going to spend the night in our apartment drinking our way through what I have already accumulated.

I am sure we will all be drinking good beer no matter what we do.
