I mentioned previously that Jeff and I spent a summer studying abroad in London. One of our favorite parts of that trip was having a neighborhood pub to frequent on a weekly (or sometimes daily…) basis. It was a fun to go to a place that was familiar and where you could just sit for awhile and relax and have a good pint of beer. Well, when we got home from London, we were on the lookout for a similar place in SLO to become our new pub. And when friends introduced us to a place called Spikes, we knew we’d found the perfect place.
Last night, we were there for Jeff’s favorite night of the week–wing night. He swears they’re the best wings in the city and since I don’t eat meat (and never have liked hot sauce), I guess I’ll have to take his word for it!
Spikes has 40 different beers to choose from–on tap or in the bottle–and if you drink all 40, you get a t-shirt and to sign your name in the ledger–exciting, right? As you can see from the picture below, Jeff’s on his 6th Spikes card. I’m 1 beer away from finishing my 2nd card but since that beer is $11, I’ve been saving it for a special occasion.
Here’s the infamous beer list:
Spikes will always be a special place for us. We usually go there to celebrate a holiday, birthday, engagement–we even went after our rehearsal dinner last summer! Yep, that classy.
Do you have a favorite neighborhood pub or hang out?
