Tuesday night I was in the mood for a yummy burger and some beer, so I headed on down to Pyramid for a sumptious combination of sautee'd mushrooms and melted mozzarella (damn that word is spelled wierd) over a veggie patty, washed down with copious ammounts of beer. yummy stuff. Though I'm worried by their recent changes. The new dress code is . . . odd. They are wearing white button-down dress shirts (okay, fine, beats the old denim ones), with black JEANS. Er, what? I had to look a few times to make sure I wasn't just more intoxicated than I felt. Nope, true enough, that's what they were wearing. Sure, I'll be the first to admit that the dress-shirts on the ladies look *good* (it's one of the pieces of clothing I <3 on gals) but mixing it up with black jeans just doesn't look right. Even my twisted fashon sense looks at it and goes, "something just aint right here". Further giving me cause for concern is they've taken my beloved mushroom mozzo. burger off the menu. Granted, you can still get one as a custom-built deal and it's the same price as it ever was, but traditionally when a restaraunt moves an item off the main menu listing into some small-type options at the bottom of the page, that's the first step to getting rid of it entirely. An even more terrifying problem, though, is that of the beer. They have gotten rid of 4 different brews (one of which took second place at a recent competition) and have introduced two new flavors, both of which suck. The bartender doesn't like them either, and neither did the various people sitting next to me (we all had a taste). General concensus was that these new flavors are teh sux0r and we liked the ones they discontinued. Bah. Oh well, hopefully management will get their heads out of their collective asses and stop this disturbing trend before it goes too far (I'm running out of places I like to go for food and bier).
Other than all that, it was a good time. I had a significant ammount of alcohol that night and didn't get to bed till *way* late. Woke up feeling rather ungood (but not so much as to say doubleplusungood or even plusungood). In my defense, I had planned on drinking that much before I even arrived there, and I still went to work the following morning (as on-time as I ever am). Thus supporting my claim that I'm not an alcoholic.

I'm having a hard time creating a mental image of the white shirt and black jeans looking bad. It sounds like it would be sort of a cute "uniform". What about it is looking bad? Are the jeans too bulky or something?

jeans have never seemed at all 'dressy' to me (perhaps the way I was raised, perhaps something else, but that's just the way it is), and dress shirts can only look 'casual' when worn in a specific way (and not at work). While the 'professional' range does cover some better qualities of jeans and the dress shirts are in there also, they are on opposite ends of that spectrum. So there's this resulting clash in the levels of dress. bad enough, though tolerable, if you are doing it on your own, but when it's a required dress code that the company says everyone must wear it gives the overall impression of a lack of attention to details -- not something you want in a corporate environment. At least with the old uniform it was jeans and a denim shirt, which matched perfectly. sure the shirt was ugly, but at least it fit. :)

I'm a big fan of the Sacramento Brewing Company for a beer&food extravaganza. Their burgers are huge and yummy, and there's enough variety among their house beers to match almost any beer mood I am in.

yeah, I've been meaning to go there for some time now, but I never manage to remember to do such. I may have to lodge it more firmly in my mind, thanks for the recommendation.
