From the OverServed Travel Correspondent:

GOOD DAY TO YOU, SIR. Hello.

WHERE HAVE YOUR TRAVELS BROUGHT YOU TODAY? I’m just hanging out in Lombard, Illinois.

LOMBARD, YOU SAY? Yes, I said Lombard. The wife and I are visiting her parents before they move to Vegas.

I SEE. SO INSTEAD OF BEING 135 MILES AWAY, YOUR IN-LAWS WILL BE 1,706 MILES AWAY. Freedom!

SO WHERE EXACTLY ARE YOU? We are at the Beer House near the Yorktown Mall.

WHAT’S IN YOUR GLASS? I’m enjoying a 4.5 Out of 7 by Urban Legend Brewing.

WHICH IS WHAT, EXACTLY? It’s an oatmeal stout from Westmont, Illinois.

HOW IS IT? Surprisingly good. There’s a nice coffee/chocolate thing happening, and it’s dark and roasty, of course, but the oatmeal really smooths things out. If this was served on nitro, it would drink like velvet.

I WOULD THINK THAT ACTUAL VELVET WOULD BE HARD TO SWALLOW. It’s an expression.

DEEP THOUGHTS? The Beer House has an outrageous tap list, even more bottles, and lots of TVs to scratch your sports viewing itch. I would come back, and I would try more Urban Legend beers if given the chance.

Thanks to Matthew, who will undoubtedly be flying to Las Vegas on a regular basis now.
