    I'll be in Atlanta (Georgia Tech area) Sunday evening thru Tuesday
    afternoon.

    MAYBE squeeze in tipping a few, if I'm not locked into the client
    every minute.

    Any lurkers from that area?

    The city of Pittsbugh has a very large bar per capita ratio, however Atlanta has
    an even higher ratio..

    From a little research i did a while back...

    OK I did some search on City Search.

    My home town of Sheffield (UK) has 603 pubs for 520k people. I can't
    decide if that means Americans are anti-social or that we're a bunch of
    drunks :)

    Is the Golden Perch, halfway up the 75 bus route just past the old dole
    office and cafe, still there, I assume bus routes are forever, but don't
    cost 2p anymore.

    Get yourself in there for a proper game of bar billiards with the local
    lesbiens and have a pint of Timmy Taylors Porter...... It is winter you know
    :) Neck three of them and then stand up.

    Give my regards to the Landlord. He should be the bloke with the tweed
    jacket, glasses and elbow patches but looks a bit older. You might meet the
    German bloke as well.

    Hello Tim,
    Go to Bavaria and you'll find little villages with <1000 living there
    but 2-3 pubs. Same for the village in Westphalia where I lived until two
    years old. Around pop 600 and two pubs.

    Oh is that all ?

    I'm not sure of the exact current figure but St Albans has always had one of the highest number of pubs per head of the
    population in the UK including supposedly the oldest one.

    I loathe that 'Ye Olde' business. An unpleasant modern affectation. It was only so named recently having been just the Fighting
    Cocks quite happily for ages.

    It's right next to the Verulamium park btw where Roman ruins can be seen.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verulamium

    Anyway I thing there are currently around 50 pubs here for a population of ~ 60,000.

    San Francisco!!
    Do they still have Bondage-A-Go-Go night at the Cats Club on Folsom? Is Sean
    Penn still firing shots in the air down the street at the Paradise Lounge?
    Takes more than really good beer to make a really good bar. Can you belly up
    to the bar and stand right next to a Hells Angel, when a Oakland Outlaw
    walks in and realize that you are right in the middle between them? I hope I
    don't live long enough to have to retire to Arizona and become a Republican>

    And Guinness, Harp, Bass, Sierra, Fat Tire, and Widmer on tap.

    The Oracle convention is in town, so the alcohol pipeline will be
    running at capacity. They ran out of space at Moscone, and grabbed
    every hotel ballroom in town, and it's still not enough. So they
    rented Howard Street and put a tent over it, for the "refreshment"
    area.

    Their main campus is down in Redwood City. At sunset, it looks like
    the galactic headquarters of The Other Evil Empire, which it sort of
    is.

    Yup, 744K. It's a tiny town, 7x7 miles and a lot of that undeveloped.
    I live two blocks from an actual rock-climbing canyon with a sort-of
    stream running down the center.

    This is the Deep South; until recently 'microbrews' and other locally
    grown drinks were known as 'moonshine'. Back in the late 60s my father
    bought land up in the foothills that had the remains of a busted-up
    illegal still.

    Nowdays, it's pot greenhouses and meth labs. I miss the good old days.

    Rock-climbing canyon? Where? Near Golden Gate Park?

    Hello Damon,
    I've heard that's why many race car drivers come from there. They either
    were fast enough or got caught.

    Out here they busted dozen of upscale homes that had been pot farms
    inside. Very sad.

    No, Glen Canyon, near the south end of the city. Google Earth for Elk
    street. That's where I take my morning hike.

    Oh, ok. South of Twin Peaks, right?

    I'll have to explore that area sometime.

    I've been wanting to hike Mt. Tam, but just never found the time.

    Yeah, but pretty far, almost Daly City.

    Tam is wonderful, especially in spring and early summer when the
    waterfalls are going strong. Bootjack trail, from Muir Woods to
    Bootjack Camp, is a hard climb but worth it. Spring Trail is flatter
    and leads to some cascades that are fun to walk in. Have a beer at the
    Pelican Inn, an ersatz Olde English pub (with ersatz Olde English
    food) near Muir Beach.
