Always good to post days and hours of operation outside. The three of us were quite disappointed. Was planning on staring with a MalVerde and going on from there. So then twins and I went to la Fe and at some point Sharkey came by. So between the four of us we spent from about 1:45 until 5:45 at la Fe. Again, it is always a great idea for any business to post its days and hours of operation in a visible location. I would say that we drank between 15 and 20 beers. To bad that Club de la Cerveza lost out on that revenue.
I'll find out.
I do know they are open until 2am

That is too bad that they lost out on that revenue. I'm not sure what time he opens up, but I don't think it is until 4 or 5. I remember him being excited that Util was open at 2 pm now, which means that he can eat out before he starts work. Also, he reads this thread.

Why not open at 2pm or earlier if he is serving food? It is high season. Makes for a long day/night for the owner so he can hire some good help. He is paying rent 24/7 a month. I am sure the rent ain't cheap. Pretty sure I spent $600 pesos or more today on cervezas. Club de la cerveza could have made that money.

On a side note, Kool Beach Club was raided late afternoon today and a least 3 were taken away in handcuffs and leg shackles.

They have food, but not meals. They have little bites of things that they think you might want while you are sampling beer.

Oh, Al. I know you're mad that they weren't open when you went there. Just go some evening and start beer tasting. It's a blast. Remember Mille Voglie and how negative you were because they didn't even have a sign, and now you like them? I really think you will like this place.

The "twins" only have one night a week off from their jobs so that's why we went in the day. My second disappointment yesterday was, after finding Club de la Cerveza closed, was going to Pirata on 40th and finding that closed also. Walked by Pachmama on AV. 5 and that was packed for lunch though.

I would not say that I was negative, just stupid business practices are just plain idiotic. If you are going to be in business here/anywhere, just do it properly,wisely and smartly.

OK! I finally have more beer photos to post. Sorry I didn't post them yesterday, but I woke up with a wicked hangover, and then I realized that I lost my debit card the last time I used it, which was just before Christmas, and so I was a bit of a nervous wreck all day.



















Sorry...some of them turned out small. That's never happened to me before.
