On New Year's Eve there was a discussion regarding the plan for New Year's Day. Big Time was keen to watch all three of the afternoon college bowl games and none of us had any idea of where we could do that. The Nuke and The Sea Lawyer live here in the DC area but don't really have the time to check out sports bars.
What with them being young, upwardly mobile professionals. With two dogs.
Two big dogs.
So on New Year's Day, Big Time and his brother, The Godfather (literally, he's Little Bit's godfather) did the research and came up with Theismann's.
Yup, Joe Theismann's Restaurant. Multiple TV screens and conveniently located for all of us.
We watched bits and pieces of college bowl games, saw The Winter Classic being played out on the ice in the great outdoors (much warmer venue than last year!) and indulged ourselves with beverages, appetizers and main courses.
Fun was had by all.
Okay, the teams from the SEC did not have fun yesterday. Nor did the Chicago Black Hawks.
But the combined tribes from Michigan, California, Virginia and Little Rhody had an excellent time. Well, Little Bit would have had a great time had she not been up late the night before. Slept through the entire meal she did.
As for me? Two Guinness and a Philly Cheese Steak.
I'd say that was a fine time.
