Earlier this week my brother called me and said he had tickets for game 4 of the Pens/Capitals series. Sounds good to me! We both decided to leave work early and make a day of it.
My brother is a beer nerd like me so we used our time to stop at one of my favorite bars in the world. Fat Head's is a brewery based out of Ohio, but has restaurant/tap room in Pittsburgh. Some of you that I've traded beer with were the recipients of some of their brews.
This was a delicious double ipa called Marauder.
This sandwich had kielbasa and pierogis on it. I regret nothing. It paired nicely with a wonderful hefeweizen.
The paint bucket! I don't know if anybody calls the arena that, but they should.
Somehow we ended up at a bar in the arena that was giving away free shots of Jim Beam. That was not a good choice.
A view from the seats.
This was my second ever playoff hockey game. The Pens ended up winning 3-2 so it capped off a very awesome evening.
