July3rd fireworks at Clavinsdads.
After 4 hours of drinking beer I figured it would be smart to start drinking vodka then bourbon :-\

Nice.

I have been visiting the Trillium Brewery a bit too much - a case costs about $100-115 bucks, so I'm going to avoid for a bit.

I had literally about 12 of them at a restaurant one night on a trip to Chicago.

Filled my sink at the hyatt with puke and woke up to that.

Porter airlines to Toronto actually gives you free beer when you fly.

And they pour it in a GLASS.

It's necessary to drink on the flight, since they're prop planes that basically land on a postage stamp island off Toronto.

I've never had drinks before or during a flight.

Ever walk through a crowded bar sober and realize how much easier it it to do when drinking? ;D
Seems ever elbow catches you compared to when you are drinking and you just flow through the crowd,

There are so many assholes in the bar when you are sober!

Even when talking to someone, its like the Seinfeld episode with the close talker.

Saturday I had two bottles of Eagles Rare 10yr engraved for the holidays.
While there the manager had brought in 4 bottles from his collection.two were hard to get Rye's.he let me try all of them.
They also had a bottle of Old Weller Antique 107 stashed in the back that they sold me.
From there me and my girl went to have a late lunch where I had a pint and from there to the bar I play softball for.
They had just got a bottle of Weller 12yr which is damn impossible to get so they poured me a nice size drink.


...CalvinH was asleep early Saturday.

Saturday I got to sample Pappy 20 year bourbon and George T Stagg 17 year.
I also shared some of my Johnny Drum {not that difficult to find} and Barrel Bourbon Batch #2 {getting very difficult to get}.
