Backyard Brewhouse Hellbound

Men and boys put to the sword…
Women: slavery.

Name: Backyard Brewhouse Hellbound
Type: bitter
Venue: Four Candles, Oxford

Review/notes: Asked what the solution to a computer problem was, my response was to “smack it with a sledge hammer until it capitulates.”  My words hit me with nostalgia.

The word, “capitulate,” evokes Proustian memories (is that toast I smell?) of one of Jackie’s classics professors who ended every lecture about military history with these words: “Whereupon the [insert vanquished here] capitulated, the men were put to the sword and the women and children sold into slavery.”  For years, I described every professional success thus.   Now, it’s more likely to be, “hit me again, barkeeper.”  Six of one, half a dozen of the other.
