'bout time for a new post, wouldn't you say? Unfortunately, there's not much to say and not much time to say it: Real Salt Lake is in the match of their lives tonight - vs. Monterrey for the CONCACAF Champions League finals, at home, 8:00 p.m. local time - and we have to scurry out to find a sports bar where we can watch it.
We did try a new sports bar last weekend, Bout Time Pub & Grub, at the Old Mill Village (i.e. strip mall) in Cottonwood Heights, sort of right between the Cotton Bottom and the Hog Wallow. It wasn't anything special but had super-friendly staff, Full Suspension on tap and decent, if uninspiring, sports bar food. I was intrigued, however, by the appetizer menu's Scotch Eggs (hard-boiled eggs wrapped in garlic sausage, breaded and deep-fried) and also the Bacon-Wrapped Olives (large green olives wrapped in bacon and deep-fried). I didn't try either of those but if we ever go back, I may have to - if I got both, it'd be like breakfast what with both the bacon and the eggs.
I'll post again tomorrow with an RSL update - this is a pretty big deal for them, and American soccer in general. One of these days we'll have to actually go to a live game!
