We arrived at our Best Western and got settled by having a swim in the pool. Then we took the bus to the SOCO district to have dinner. We ate at Hopdoddy Burger. This is a destination for food!

After a couple of hours and a few of their high quality high ABV beers we decided it was time to get some dinner. Ryan suggested Pint House Pizza (also on my list, nice) which is known for their killer beer list.
