Friday night Chris and I went to this new restaurant/pub we have been meaning to go to for quite some time called The British Beer Company. We went with our friends Becca and Travis and Georgette and Tyrone as kind of a birthday celebration for me. It was a pretty fun place, the food was good (I had fish and chips) and the beer was even better. They had over 150 different British beers. I had a Scottish beer from Edinburgh called John Courage and Chris stuck with his old favorite Newcastle. The setup of the place was pretty neat and really gave it the feel and look of an English pub. On weekends they have live bands. The band they had Friday was pretty good. They did a little bit of everything from Led Zeppelin to Jimi Hendrix to the Beatles.

It is Tyrone's dream to be in a Heineken commercial

Saturday night we went over to our friends Joy and Brian's to watch the Seahawks/Cowboys playoff game. They are from Texas and therefore Cowboys fans so we thought that it would be fun to watch it with them. It was a crazy game, both teams have really struggled this year so it was really a toss up as to who was going to be the better team. Neither team was all that great but a couple of crazy plays in the 4th quarter went in the Seahawks favor and we ended up pulling it out 21-20. Chris and I were pretty pumped. GO HAWKS! Next week they will face either the New Orleans Saints or the Chicago Bears. Personally I hope we play the Bears. The game was pretty boring for the first 3 quarters so we had to rely on entertainment from the dogs. They have a cocker spaniel named Jagger and were also taking care of our friends Amy and Troy's cocker spaniel Nettie.

Today we had lunch at Chili's with our friends John and Kelli. After that it was home to watch some football and clean the house.

I hope everyone had a great weekend:)

Blogger is being lame so I will post the rest of my pics under this post...

Glad you had a fun time! There is a British restaurant near my house that is run by people from Portsmouth. They do great fish and chips and make meat pies from scratch. They have a good variety of British beer too. DH like Boddington's.
