His compatriot working next to him was quite slow, too. We got stuck in her line for a while our first time up for beers before he rescued us from another few-minute wait. In fairness to her, she did have to deal with an unusual request from an ancient woman who was just ahead of us in line. This woman, whom my brother thought was her in eighties, ordered an entire bottle of wine, Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc, and had the server pour it into a giant plastic cup, which did not seem meant for sharing. I had never seen anything like that.
Fun at the old ballpark. That was even before the first pitch of terrific Astros playoff victory, going up 2-0 in the best of five versus the Tribe. It was a good day.
Postscript - I was at Game 3 versus the Red Sox, a dispiriting loss, but actually had some good service, very friendly and prompt enough, in the upper deck at the Karbach stand in left field area. The beers were a bright spot, and helpful, in watching the game. And, I had good service there last year, too.
