Had the day off work today for nickel beer day. Nickel beer day, you ask? Yep, there's a local bar, the Dakota Inn Rathskeller that opened back in 1933 and in honor of their anniversary they celebrate ever year by selling Blatz for the price it would have been back in 1933, .05 cents. It's only a lunch special from 11:00am until 2:00pm but the food in delicious. My dad has been going every year for at least 10 years and I just started tagging along a few years back when I became legal. Makes for a great lunch with the old man.
