Your gamenight beer: So the Phillies didn’t make a deal. Well, I’ll have more about this later. But for now, enjoy a Fuller’s London Pride, an English pale ale. Sure, maybe we don’t have the prospects or the money necessary to do explosive things at the deadline, but we have our beer, and that’s what counts, right? For dinner, have some red curry chicken and basatmi rice.
