Old Engine Oil and Gravity

After reading Gretchin Rubin's Happiness Project, wherein she works on being happier for a year one area at a time and develops a set of "commandments" to support that, I decided to work on a set of my own.

However, "commandments" is a word already taken in my life so I call these operating principles.

  • Drink beer
  • Run
  • Do the right thing
  • Have an opinion
  • Chase what matters

I recently had the opportunity to put the first operating principle into practice at Gravity, a wine bar in Palo Alto. I was surprised by their long list of unusual beers. The Old Engine Oil was a chocolatey beer, dark as a Guiness but much lighter in weight. The label was great! I can't wait to go back and try the London Porter.
