Thirsty Isle

As many of you know, I have entered the Unpaid Intern phase of my life. Sometimes it's downright grimy, but sometimes....most times in the case of MatteBlack, it has its perks. Yesterday Paul and I went to Thirsty Isle, a pub in Long Beach. Dim lit, home of the 320z. Schooner, and 18 beers on tap. They boast of having the coldest beer in Long Beach, and I must say that I agree.
"We didn't just say we have the Coldest Beer in Town....We use Blizzard Beer System and pour Ice Cold Beer at 29 degrees!"

Although this bar is mostly a  dude bar, okay and maybe a little skeezy...It's perfect for shooting some 50 cent pool and kicking it on a rainy day. Food is made fresh on order, and the swinging fluorescent lighting and wood floors provide for a divinely divey atmosphere. A Long Beach must.

What's the deal Fro Yo?

Call it a fad, whatever, I love frozen yogurt. the tartness, the fruit toppings, LOVE IT. But there's something that I just can't handle....Fro yo, what is up with the annoyingly bright colors and ultra modern decor?? Why is every Frozen yogurt shop decked out in hideous shades of lime green and stark white plastic seating over a faux pebble floor? Frozen Yogurt, I will continue to love you, but something has GOT to be done about the interiors.....seriously. 

Mmmm clothes.

Love this site.  Go HERE to enjoy the craziness.
