My work colleagues and I had our annual holiday outing on Friday afternoon (we’re past the point where I have to make cutesy jokes about how I work at “Sac Rag World Headquarters,” right?). A few weeks ago I had been able to exert my considerable influence over the group to steer the selection process away from the standard trendy and/or awkward fare and as a result, I took my work mates to Sam’s Hof Brau.
I know our fans are familiar with sac-eats’s love of the Hof, and I second everything he says. If they’d let me purchase a dedicated booth I would scrape up the cash to do so. On this particular day the hofmeisters had cooked up some mac ‘n’ cheese, so I had a roast beef sandwich with a side of mac and a green salad. The place was packed with retirees so there was quite a queue and the joint was jumping. The banquet hall in the back was even full.
Afterward, we went bowling with the retirees. The only thing not awesome about the whole thing was how depressing it is walking past the carcasses of the Tower stores (with “Thanks for the memories” still displayed on the marquee at Tower Books). Although a pretty great Goodwill store has opened in the former location of Tower video.

I can’t believe you people say this place is good. They don’t even have real potatoes! They taste just like the dried potatoes they use at KFC.
I’m going to have to throw my vote to CoolDMZ & Sac-Eats. This place never fails me. Comfort food overload/. My nephew worked there until a few weeks ago. The potatoes are real. Can’t vouch for their taste, as I always opt for the stuffing! Perhaps my years working for Tower imbedded this place in my DNA or something, but I love it. Endless pickles!
What a coincidence, “Endless Pickles” was my nickname in college.
