ISO Troegs Nugget Nectar

Comparing it to the same beer in 6/12oz format.
I forget how much the 6 packs are, but somewhere around $11-13 maybe?

Source for Freshly Rendered Duck Fat

Locally, my dad picked up some rendered duck fat at Wilson Farm in Lexington around the holidays last year. Don't remember if it was fresh or shelf stable or cost or anything though. It was a small container too, nowhere near the size OP talks about here.

Searching for a great Hot Dog as winter winds down.

Pretty sure you mean the Lower Depths, not Deep Ellum.

Food or cocktail classes

I took the Boston Shaker class a few weeks ago and it was great.

Dave's Fresh Pasta's classes are great too.

Menotomy Grill - Arlington (anyone been?)

Yeah the draft beer list is quite a bit better than when they first opened. I went once when they opened and I went again recently.

Do you ever sit at the bar? One of the bartenders when I went a few weeks ago was extremely awkward and terrible at his job. I figured the same thing that he must be a friend of someone...but even then, it was just incredibly bad. The other bartender just slapped menus down in front of us and didn't say anything. The two of them seemed to be on different planets and it was quite clear they didn't get along.

Very strange.

The mussel app was good and a large portion, but I wouldn't get the pulled pork sandwich again.

Best Day Drinking

Sligo. The last operator of the Abbey (Steve) bartends most weekdays, so some of the same crew rolls over there.

Pizza and beer...

I won $150 playing Keno once at Newtowne by trying to lose (pick 12 numbers and hit 0 to win $4) but I hit 8/12 for $150.

Also, 5 years ago this April I went to my now girlfriend's birthday thing at Newtowne. Very memorable as a girl at the bar pissed herself and left without a shoe.

Soft Shell Sandwiches at Fresh Pond Seafood

Yeah, when they opened I asked if they had homemade tartar and they told me the only tartar was on top of the counter. At the time it was McCormick's...gross.

Soft Shell Sandwiches at Fresh Pond Seafood

Haven't had the fried sandwich...but regarding fresh at the counter, I've picked up 2 every week for the last few last few weeks and they are always alive prior to being cleaned. They were specifically noted as being from Maryland on my last visit (Sunday). $5.99/ea. Not quite as big as the whales at New Deal for $7.99 but well worth the price.
