MTTT - Craftsman Chop House

The September MTTT (M's Thirsty Third Thursday) was a little off schedule due to the planner extraordinaire being in Germany for two weeks in September. We actually held the MTFT (Fourth Thursday) back on September 25 at Craftsman Chop House.

This actually is one of my favorite places to stop in to have a drink and have a dinner. It is impressive all the way around, from decor, to steaks, chops and seafood to the attention owners give to patrons. Decor resembles the Craftsman style associated with Frank Lloyd Wright. They normally serve the house-made potato chips, but now that I think about, we were not served them for some reason.

We quickly discovered that on Thursday's they have all drafts at $2.50 and a prime-rib dinner special for $8.99. Talk about a deal. I had two beers, a martini (drink of the month for $2.50), and prime rib all for under $17.00! Cheryl and Liz also had the same dinner. It was a delicious cut of prime rib. Poor Girts had two Bombay Sapphire Gin drinks and this came to $16 alone.

I know I'll be back since it is such a cool place, close to my office, and a smart place to hang out when you are by yourself.
