Love for my foods and beers

My new favorite place, Social Kitchen & Brewery, is doing German-style nights on Mondays and Tuesdays! As they say on their site, "The great German beer cities of Köln and Düsseldorf have a unique beer drinking tradition: in bars and breweries in these cities, a server greets them with a stange, or glass, of beer. Throughout the evening, servers circulate through the dining room with trays of freshly-poured beers, depositing a full, cold glass each time a patron's glass is nearly empty. Guests enjoy the conviviality of good company and good beer, with nary an empty glass, and no need to flag down a server to order another."

This was my favorite thing about Cologne. The server would make a mark with a pencil on the paper tablecloth everytime they dropped a glass off, and you got a continuous supply of cold beer. You paid at the end based on the number of hashmarks. The trays are also really neat - they have holes that are the perfect size for the little glasses, so nothing spills.
