Here we are.

Now, I know what you’re thinking.  I mean, a quick perusal of the Tin Can’s menu will show that they don’t even serve breakfast, much less a slinger.  On top of that, they don’t even open up before lunch time, so what am I doing here??

Well, for the duration of the World Cup, the Tin Can is opening up at 6:30am daily and serving a pretty full breakfast menu, including the World Cup Slinger.  I love the Tin Can and it made me glad I could get out there and check their slinger.


The sign.

Welcome to the newest installment on The 13 Blog! As you can see, we’ve moved over to a WordPress.  After doing some work on The ACSTL Fanatic I really began to enjoy it, so I swapped it over here too!

Well, without any further ado, let’s get it on!

So, I got a picture message on my phone about three weeks ago.  It was a picture of the Three Monkeys Menu showing a slinger, at least that’s what I found it out it was after confirming…it was a bad picture.  The sender’s not a good phonetographer like me.  So, the date was decided upon, and out we went!


So, I was planning on making this entry tomorrow.  I figured after last night that I’d be sleeping way in today and wouldn’t have time.  It’s 8:45am and the rest of my wedding party doesn’t arrive at the house till 1pm.  I don’t have to start getting ready until 12pm…but I woke up at like 7am today…so…I’m full of nervous energy, so here we go.  Let’s relive last night shall we!


On Sunday, the fiancee and I were driving down to the Bevo Neighborhood to visit our friends’ new baby. On our way down there, we saw a few great bars that the 13 Blog had to check out in the very near future. Well, the first one we got to was Colorado Bob’s Ship of Fools. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get a great picture of the front of the place, but I did my best!!

When we parked the car and took a look around, the bar’s in what looks to be and old storefront…or perhaps a couple of them.  This gives a unique look and feel to the place.

The first thing you see here is their beer sign.  As you can plainly see, this is a horrid, nasty beer.  I can’t even imagine what Busch Bavarian Style Beer would taste like on draft.  As we discussed in this post, one of the great signs for a good dive is a bad beer sign.
