Re: What are you drinking right now?

So much truth has been said on another thread about the art of drinking alone. Warm, comforting. A kind hug from a lost love. Not maudlin at all, a quiet sense of wellbeing. I ought to do this more often. I enjoy those days when I have the house to myself for the day and I can mix up whatever drink...

Re: What are you drinking right now?

Well shit! I didn't have bitters, so I used a chinchona bark tea that I use to make a tonic base. I mixed a little of that with Absinthe, whiskey, a lemon rind, sugar, and a little soda water. Pretty fucking close. And really fucking great! Thanks for the inspiration, Scott. Holy cats! I gotta try ...

There's usually twigs and leaves in the park...
Those are good for those itchy, burning situations, especially if it is early spring and they still have ice on them.

Re: Snow Day?

April 3rd and we're forecast 6-8 inches of snow by tonight I'd be happier if I had a sauna. I'd put a case of beer in the snow bank, stoke up the sauna, get rosy red, and then roll around in the snow every time I needed a fresh beer. Instead, I pulled on my boots, shrugged on my jacket, and went ou...

It's April 3rd and snowing like fuck-all here in Minnesota.
I'm daydreaming of NOLA. Minnesota is taking a back seat while I enjoy this sazerac.

Re: Saint Fatpricks Day

The nerve of these whippersnappers who really don't drink (or if they do, not very well) venture out in the world during holidays to our established watering holes and pretend they can drink! Every time I bitch about this subject, my coworkers and acquaintances give me that look. So, now I just mut...

Re: Functional Alcoholic?

As a kid, I grew up around relatives who constantly had a beer in hand... Just saying, the take on the question may be more complicated than appears at first glance. Same here. At every family gathering, my parents or relatives had alcohol at hand. The nannies...or is it the ninnies...say that is a...

Or some form of fried potatoes and eggs with loads of Franks red hot.
Yes to fried potatoes and eggs with hot sauce. I get nervous when we run low on eggs or out of potatoes. I never know when I might need a hangover breakfast so it's best to be stocked with potatoes and eggs.

Re: Snow Day?

That reminds me of my high school years when my friends and I would throw a case or two down in the snow outside the sauna. We'd run out periodically to grab fresh cold beers, maybe roll around in the snow, and then run back into the hot steam of the sauna.

Re: Saint Fatpricks Day

What you all doing for Saint Fatprick's Day? I figured I'd have overcooked eggs tomorrow with undercooked bacon, a side of salmonella-flavored salad, and make out with drunk-ass college chicks. Oh, and walk in a parade. St. Patrick's Day on a Saturday sucks. Way too many people, talking loudly, cro...
