Umamiventure #27: Trappist (OAK)

Can we just be lazy this month and have a low-key Umamiventure? YES! Let's meet at The Trappist Belgian beer bar in downtown Oakland for their Taco Tuesday, next 7/13 at 7pm. Yes, SFers, I'm asking you to trek over the bridge. Deal with it.

The Trappist is awesome. They have nearly 30 different beers on tap, and another 100 kinds in bottles. Here's a list of what they've got tapped this month. Green Flash Le Freak! YAH!

Plus, there's $2 tacos from Tamarindo restaurant next door, available on Tuesdays only. I wonder if it's really Belgian Beer Carnitas-- that would be amazing!

I'll get there at 7pm, and stay pretty late so stop by whenever and have a strong beer with me! Yoko will be there too.

SFers: The 12th Street BART station is literally right around the corner so you have NO EXCUSE!

As usual, RSVP in the comments below, Twitter me, or respond directly in the Facebook invite.

    Bummer, but we’ll definitely make it to the next one!
