The Heidelberg

I'm not much for going out at night, but when I do, you better believe I do it right! I just got home from the Heidelberg, Ann Arbor's equivalent to any bar in Germany (I can say that because I've never been to Germany). The occasion was my friend Timmy D's birthday,and I dedicate this blog post to Tim and his delightful girlfriend Erika, who invited me to go out tonight. Thanks, friends, and Happy Birthday Tim!

The Heidelberg is a little weird. It's one of those three-clubs-in-one sort of places. The main floor seems to be a classy-ish restaurant. The second floor is a bar/club, with a cover. The basement is where the fun really lies. The Rathskellar is loud and full of college kids, but they also loan out Euchre decks, so my new best friends and I played several hands of Euchre. It was loads of fun. The bad thing about Rathskellar is that the pretty much serve only expensive German beer, which wasn't really in my budget. Oh well.

Heidelberg - B
good times with good friends - always an A+

Why have we never played Euchre together? Or have we and I just don't remember?

So obviously, I have to ask what Euchre is ...

Yeeeaa! We were celebrating at the same time. But I didn't have beer. I'm saving that for my Epicurean Classic class. Missed you. :)
