The weather the past couple of days has been great (Sunny, mid-80s). I decided to go for a walk and get something to eat. A co-worker recommended a place called 'The Tap Room'. I was just going to have one pint with lunch, but their beer was so good I had three! :) This pub features the brews of Monteith's Brewing Co. and they were very great. I tried the Celtic Red, Black Beer, and the Reddler. The Celtic and Black were excellent! The Reddler was good, but a little too sweet for my taste. The food was good and the menu had a lot of great quotes by famous people about beer and drinkinng. The title of this post comes from Monteith's slogan. I wanted to buy a t-shirt with it on it, but no luck. Thanks for the recommendation, Mark!
Yesterday, Dave F (a co-worker) and I went to the Christchurch Botanic Gardens near downtown. The weather was beautiful and I ended up getting a decent sunburn. The gardens were free and definitely worth it. They had all kinds of different plants but our favorite were the trees. I took a bunch of pictures to get better at using my new camera (Nikon D40x). I will have to upload them later as the hotel's Internet charges over $1 for each MB for 10 and it could get pricey. When I get to the station I will upload them.
