You had a second chance with that love affair of yours, and you blew it. You arrived too late, missed the fishing boat, better luck next year. Because Around the Corner can only reserve so much Great Lakes Brewing Co. Christmas Ale.
Didn’t you, like the rest of us, stockpile Christmas Ale when you could, then hide it from your friends when they came over to watch the Cavs game?
Fifteen measly cases can only batter so much scrod. So by the time you make your way to the west end of Lakewood at 7 p.m. on a Friday night, Around the Corner will be packed, and the huge planks of golden, thickly battered Christmas Ale scrod will be gone.
Sure, you can pray, but God knows you should have just showed up at 3 p.m. when the doors open. 18616-20 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, (216) 521-4413, atccafe.com; Fridays during Lent, 3 p.m. to close; Christmas Ale scrod $11.95
