Bay Area Pub Crawl on Sunday!

The WetYourWhistles team is arranging a Pub Crawl this Sunday, February 18. The party kicks off at 3pm at the BBC in Menlo Park. The crawl will also hit the Tied House in Mountain View and the Firehouse Brewery in Sunnyvale!

From the WetYourWhistles site:

Welcome to Wet Your Whistles, the on-line guide to watering holes along the San Francisco Bay Area Caltrain railway line. You can ride Caltrain from San Jose to San Francisco to have a good day out without designating a driver. Our quest is to create a comprehensive list of brewpubs, microbreweries, bars, and well-stocked restaurants along the Caltrain line.

Coca Cola Blak

I bought a 4 pack the other day and I’m just giving it a try now.  Not bad.  The taste is much lighter than regular Coke and it’s not as sweet.  The coffee flavor mixes well.  Almost like vanilla, but not overwhelmigly so.  I’ll post again in a few days when I’ve finished the pack.

Meanwhile, some other Blak reviews.

The Diet Coke and Mentos phenomenon rages on. We tried 4 bottles yesterday at Homestead. Here’s a shot of the action:


Update: Here’s a howto and some of the science background.

Update 2: The photo was taken by Gordon.  Travis sent me this excellent video of 5 trials of the Soda+Mentos experiment on a news show.
