4th of July Weekend Eats VII
But I didn't really want to take my dad's Fathers Day present and get something for myself, you know? I knew he had never seen the movie Gran Torino - I think he had said something about it being too depressing to see Clint Eastwood as a grumpy old man - and I knew he would like it, so I exchanged the book for that movie. We watched it Sunday while I ate lunch.
Eastwood's character drinks Pabst Blue Ribbon throughout the movie, so when Elizabeth and I stopped by the liquor store in the afternoon, I announced that I was getting some PBR.
"Are you serious?" she asked.
Indeed I was. It had been a long time since I'd had one - I don't remember how long, actually. It was okay. Nothing special, though much better than other beers that serve as fashion accessories for people who don't really like beer, like Rolling Rock or Olympia. But the Modelo we drank - including the one I have open as I type this - was better.
