  2. No typo. People in KIAs do not have sexual intercourse.

    Holy crap, didn't know this, in laws live in Long Beach we go out there every year for the Grand Prix, have to stop in the Yard House and Auld Dubliner each time. Hope they don't change anything, we like the Yard House's just the way they are!!!

    Although certain beers don't do very well in a yard. Especially if it is warm outside. I find it difficult to drink a yard before it gets all warm. At least with the pints you always have a cold one. :) Speaking of which...

    I've been to the San Diego location and the Denver location. Both were good experiences.

    While Longhorn would be the last place I'd go for a steak. The YH at Gulfstream was promising. At least I'll have something halfway decent to spend my credit card points on.

    Heard about one in Yonkers, NY, but have not made the trip. The buyout by Darden is certainly not going to motivate me to visit. But is interesting to see craft beer continue to evolve for better or worse, nonetheless.
  13. I've had both good and bad experiences with my local Yard House. Had a Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous and a Rogue Hazel Nectar there, and thought both were off from where they should be.

    585,000,000 for 39 locations? I can't believe they are paying 15,000,000 per location.

    Reading this as someone who has never been, it had absolutely no effect on me. People are stupid, for an employee to point that out means he is honest.

    Went to the yard house when I was in Vegas a handful of years ago. They denied me a yard of Arrogant Bastard as "it was too late". I told the bartender, "this is Vegas, nothing is too late". They shrugged and poured me a pint. I think I had four pints of the stuff that night.
