Super Bowl 2005
This story is best told in pictures.† I will supplement the pictures with some text.† Caroline and Patrick decided to throw a Super Bowl Party for Mom and Dadís friends who were so helpful last fall while Mom was in Hospice.† I thought this was a great idea and so I invited myself to join the fun.† I got on a plane Friday morning and Dad picked me up at the airport.
Saturday night we had a warm
up for Sundayís Super Bowl Party.† I had
heard rumors of Towers of Beer being served at Bricktown.† Our mission objective was to conquer a
Apparently Fuggle is an English hops that produces a beer that is not too carbonated.† Patrick helped with the beer selection, because I was unaware of the brewing history of several of the beers.† Patrick also ran the tap.† The Tower was a fearsome thing.† But it turns out looks are deceiving.† There is an inner cylinder filled with ice.† So the tower only delivers a miserly 84 ounces of beer.† The tower costs a whopping $14.† I guess that comes out to $2 per twelve ounce beer.
The first tower went down pretty quickly.† It was a decent brew.† We decided after considerable thought to try to scale a second Tower.† This time we ordered an Octoberfest.

After dinner we went to the
Busted Lift to check out
