A drink at Charlie’s, Aruba, video

Still working with the iPhone 6 and that video app. The app is actually more challenging than the iMovie version that comes with the iPhone, which is a disappointment. Still there is some functionality such as exposure control and such that is better. Anyway, here’s a drink at Charlie’s Bar in San Nicolaas, Aruba, DWI.

I hope to get better with this app soon. It is convenient to upload directly from the iPhone. Make blogging a bit more immediate and fun. Still, needs some work and practice. Stay tuned for the results.

Weihenstephaner, iPhone 6, video

Stopped into a Bavaria Restaurant near Palm Beach, Aruba, DWI for a tasty Weihenstephaner. Bavaria is a great place for all sorts of German beer and food. They’re going to be adding some new things to the menu soon. So, if you’re visiting the island, check in to see what’s on offer. He’s the quick look video:

That’s a darn good beer, served by pleasant people. Enjoy every meal… and drink, too. Bon dia from Aruba.

Cafe 080, Aruba (2014)

Cafe 080 serves up Dutch-style favorites in a pub atmosphere. This place is located just around the corner from the traffic light in Noord, Aruba, so it’s easy to find and only a couple minutes drive from the high-rise hotel area.

As you can see from the photos above, there is seating outside. There’s also a bar inside with plenty of soccer (football) memorabilia on display.

This place has the best french fries on the island. I stop in to satisfy that craving from time to time as well as to enjoy the various other Dutch food treats that you’ll find on the menu. Prices are very reasonable. So venture out from that resort and try the Cafe 080. If there’s a soccer match on, you’ll be sure to enjoy the vibe here, too.

Kloster Andechs Dunkel

I wanted to try another beer from the Andechs Monastery. That last doppelbock dunkel was mighty tasty. So, I went with the weissbeir dunkel (minus the doppelbock part). Here it is:

I poured it a little too fast. Still, the head on this beer was frothy good, kind of a like preview of the show. And the show was smooth, a bit creamy, lots of body, and deeply flavorful. This beer thing might get to be a regular feature here at The Bent Page. Soon I’ll be visiting with some German friends who have native beers at their fingertips. Uh, oh!
