The UEFA final was great!

Lunch was hopping at Shultzy's today with the finals of the UEFA Champions League (Manchester United vs. Chelsea) on TV. One side of the restaurant was for watching and listening to the game, while the other had the TVs on mute for the more conversationally oriented diners. The game was fantastic (going to overtime, penalty kicks, and then extra penalty kicks) and the fans were riveted by the action.

To help set the mood, we featured Bangers and Mash today, the British pub classic with a mild pork sausage over buttermilk mashed potatoes. And you could wash it down with a Boddington's Pub Ale (from the UK) or a Budweiser (the official beer of Manchester United).

I don't know whether we'll still have Bangers and Mash tomorrow, but if you're an Anglophile, you might want to check it out.
