Around 6 pm, a rare phenomenon was witnessed.
Pint night at Zax
While there, my roommate and I were scared shitless by a lightning strike a few hundred feet away. Totally unexpected. I hadn't heard any strikes before, and didn't hear any after.
After months of delay, the new Gingerman opened on Wednesday.
I will admit, I was a little afraid to see it.
I was unsure if the amount of Ginger at the new location would be adequate...
Before entering, we paid homage to ye' olde' Gingerman.
The first thing I missed is the front porch/patio.
After entering, I felt a little better. The dart boards have moved to the right. There is still a seating area to the right as well.
The bar position is the same, with tables opposite the bar.
The biggest upgrade to the inside is a seating area near the back. It has a garage-type door that can be opened to allow access to the beer garden.
Although it was wet out, opening the door was nice for letting in fresh rain-smellin' air.
I did also notice the re-use of furniture, fixtures, and flair from the old place.
Now we get to the important part. The beer garden.
A little sterile, being a new place, but very nice. Pretty much like the old one, with one BIG plus.
No more trees for crows to have their evening time gang meetings while poop/peeing in your tall fresh pint of Maharajah IPA.
