A beer at lunch

Speaking of lagers, this recommendation comes from McSweeney’s. I thought it apt considering my last post:
A beer at lunch, just every once in a while
Have a lager, no an ale, no no: a lager. Every once in a while. It adds character to your meal and definition to your day. Try it at a sun-lit table away from the bar and looking out to the corner intersection. Take a gentle sip when you see that woman with the stroller cross the street. Set it down and grab another forkful of salad, another bite of pickle-topped burger, another ketchup-dipped fry.
