Then again, if I felt like slumming it I go for the 50 cent schlitz.
And you pooh pooh the McRib while drinking schlitz...wtf is wrong with this picture? :)

Then again, everyone pooh poohs the McRib. :sneaky:

Heck, I'd spend extra for a good quality part. Prob

Schlitz doesn't act as a colon flush. And it tastes better... not saying great.... just better than mcrib.;)

Optima from what I've heard makes junk batteries now, nothing but e waste from China honestly. Pretty disappointing, because I would have spent the extra money if their quality is consistent. Can't speak on Johnson Controls, but my Stepdad worked as a manager at East Penn for a long time, and their Deka batteries aren't too bad.

They also make the Partsource "Pro Series" AGM battery I got a few weeks ago. Will see how it lasts in the Ontario weather.

It is, because a decade ago they no doubt were an easy recommendation for anyone wanting to go to AGM.

Maybe if they dropped their price to help offset the declination in quality, I would still consider one but nope.

I hear Odyssey and Energizer is good too.

Wife and I are actively searching for somewhere new to live most of the year.

FWIW the rotating buffet went along with the $2 drafts, mostly specialty beers (minimum 69 on tap at all times) Monday through Friday, 4 to 6 pm. The food was actually good though, believe it or not. They even had things like carved turkey breast, carved ham, Swedish meatballs... then once in a while low end stuff like taco bar.

The 50 cent schlitz was a different bar. The wiring is shot in the building so its lit using Christmas light strands.

Sounds like a good place to get stabbed lol
The pubs around here have really good food but you can expect to pay 18 bucks for fish n chips or a loaded burger
And the beer is $
I don’t really know how much beer is ,I drink appletons and coke at $9 for double lol
Beer is more of a home thing on work nights

Establishment number 2 is.... generally safe. Ish. For the most part. They did remove the doors from the restroom and stalls to discourage ladies of the night from plying their wares.

I've never gone in with more than $10, and don't carry a wallet or phone. But its one of those places that nobody really messes with.

I guess you could wind up in trouble like anywhere else, just need to keep your head about you.
