Next, it was off to Robb Athletic Field to join the local gym. Brewslut and I have been working with a personal trainer for about two years, so we felt it necessary to seek out a local gym so we wouldn't come back to PA out of shape. We decided to join for an entire month since it was only $25 versus $5 per day, as we figured we'd go more than five times. (We were correct... we went to the gym seven times during our visit.)

But enough of that. First on the beer agenda was a visit to Pizza Port OB, the first of ELEVEN visits. You see, I got it stuck in my stupid noggin that we should go to Pizza Port OB every day of our trip and have at least one beer during each visit. It sounded like a reasonable goal for the trip, right? I opted for the Middle Man IPA, while Brewslut chose the A.B.L.E. Stout. I also got the OB 125th Anniversary Pale Ale, brewed in celebration for, well, OB's 125th Anniversary. Both were excellent and got the trip started on the right foot.

Next, it was over to one of our favorite spots, South Beach Bar & Grille, up on the Newport Ave. strip. This place has the best fish tacos on the planet! See below if you don't believe me. Yes, they taste even better than they look! They are even better when you add a side of rice and beans and wash it down with a fresh Ballast Point Sculpin IPA! Plus we hit during Happy Hour, so the Sculpin was only $3.00 and the Wahoo tacos were $2.75 each!

For dinner, we settled on the OB Noodle House and treated Dano and Mags to dinner and drinks as a thank you for letting us crash for the duration of the trip. Dano had taken us there on our last trip, and not only was the food bangin', but the beer selection was stellar as well! I decided to go with the dry chow fun, which was pretty damn amazing, and paired it with Port's 6th Anniversary IPA, which was perhaps the best anniversary beer of theirs I've had thus far. This year's offering was a citrusy, tropical fruity, juicy, lip-smacking DIPA. After dinner, we retired to Dano's to chill for a bit, drink some of the aforementioned Deschutes IPA and hit the sack.
Stay tuned for Part III... coming soon!
