The Flying Saucer

If you haven't been to a Flying Saucer bar, I highly recommend it. We went to the Nashville location last week and had a great time.  The walls and ceiling are covered in plates, some of which are personalized with the info of the best customers; they have dozens of beers on tap and specialize in fancy blends and IPA types.

There are lots of locations in the U.S. as evidenced by the menu listing here...

We ordered dinner - a necessary thing if you're going to be drinking beer, imo. I had the grilled turkey with avocado, tomato, and jalopeno mayonnaise and french fries. The fella had the turkey club; it looked good too. Simple food is often the best, don't you agree?

I'm not a beer drinker. At all. I just don't like it.While the Flying Saucer has a full bar, I felt like I should have a beer/ale since that was their specialty. I ordered a Woodchuck Peach cider first time around and really liked it. It was subtle tasting and sweet and smooth. I don't like beer mainly because it tastes bitter on the back of my tongue; this cider definitely didn't have that. I tried the fella's stout, and it was AWFUL. Not only was it almost black, but it was kind of syrupy, thick, and bitter. Needless to say, I'd never be able to drink one of those.

The second round, I chose a Woodchuck Apple cider and it was even better than my first choice. That beer was a bit darker in color + it was darker in the bar by that time, so this pic isn't great. Can you see my commemorative glass that I got with this order?  It's a bit political and liberal; you have been warned. :)

Here's a shot of us finishing up our beverages after dinner. The dreaded red-eye has struck, but I appreciated the waitress taking it for us. I'm going to work on it some more in my photo editing program, but it may come to using my handy dandy ancient red eye pen. Side note: hope the fella gets used to me asking random strangers to take our photos; I'm pretty shameless when it comes to that.

Takeaway: the Flying Saucer bar was a great venue with good food and cool drink choices. I'd def go back again!
