Posts Tagged ‘Fish and Chips’

It has become increasingly difficult for me to find a regular pub/bar, that has both good food and drinks (or at least moderately priced beer), with music that doesn’t drown out conversation, and is casual enough to wear t-shirts and jeans but not look out of place if I came after work. Do you guys have a pub/bar that you frequent? I could really use some suggestions.

Portland Craft is a runner up for me. The space feels big, with incredibly high ceilings and resembles very much of a loft – the blue-grey walls probably add to it.

The Shack

A fateful day couple years ago, I had the good fortune of stuffing myself with all you can eat fish & chips. For days after it felt like I had downed a few pitchers of grease, except chunkier.  And for a long time I stayed away from fish & chips. But as they say, time heals all wounds; since then I can once again enjoy these deep-fried goodness. (more…)
