I'm watching 33 1/3. He just got done at the sperm bank.

No one can deadpan like Leslie Nielsen. I need to watch Airplane and the Naked Gun again.

Frank : It's the same old story. Boy finds girl, boy loses girl, girl finds boy, boy forgets girl, boy remembers girl, girl dies in a tragic blimp accident over the Orange Bowl on New Year's Day.

Jane: Goodyear?

Frank: No, the worst.


Last Night I had Stone's 16th anniversary IPA. A very strong and citrus-y drink. Worth picking up if you see it.

drinking Willett. it's a little on the sweet side - hints of black cherry, maybe apricot, but it's a fine bourbon. the bottle is obnoxious. then again, life itself is quite obnoxious.

Just had a Double ******* Ale. Good, but definitely not one I'd drink very often.

You should hit up Jersey Mike's if you haven't already. Definitely the best of the chain sub shops in the city. Their Italian sub kicks some major ass.

Polished off one of these bad boys at dinner before going out for the game. 15% abv, and one of the most intense and flavorful beers I've had:

With the LCBO (Ontario liqour stores) presumably striking at the end of this week, I went out the other day and got two 2-4's of Samuel Adams Boston Lager and and a 6 pack of Innis & Gunn Original.

Plus I still have half a bottle of Ketel One.

I was pretty much as deep as you can get in the craft beer world but lately I've looked to order a great bourbon or gin cocktail first, and beer second.....

Recently had a Rivertowne Hala Kahiki. It's a pineapple beer that I was pleasantly surprised by. Not overpowering but tasted good.

What type of Manhattan's are you all drinking? I'd like to try one and was going to get the ingredients. Prefer sweet or dry vermouth? Any other variations you prefer over the standard?

I hesitate to say this without ever having lived in the Northwest, but there's a good case to be made that Philly is the best beer region in the country. We just started getting Deschutes, apparently. I'm too far out of the loop to really back this claim up, but I've been consistently impressed at the places I've gone to.

Will be in town this weekend, is there a good bar on East Carson that would be a good place to watch the NBA playoffs on Saturday night (Knicks game)

As someone who has lived in the Northwest...you blasphemer.

For my money the only place better to live in for beer in the world is Belgium.

Philadelphia is definitely up there. You can debate the order and what's written but this is an accurate list of the best beer cities:

Me three. I have been having manhattans more and more recently. Not sure why, but maybe it's all part of some logical progression.

You start with crappy bland pilsners and stuff and college beer that you hate, but you drink it because it has alcohol in it.

Then you discover Yuengling is better because it actually has flavor and isn't much more expensive.

Then you get into some wheat beers like Hoegaarden because they are refreshing and have a lot more going on.

Then you find out things like Newcastle and Elliot Ness and other darker ales are more flavorful still and you try some more common stouts like Guinness.

Then you get into IPAs and go through all the standards like 60m and such.

Then you start to keep pushing the hops/bitterness envelope and end up in imperial IPAs, porters and stouts.

Then it just gets ridiculous and you find you only like beers that you get drunk from having 3 of them.

I think bourbons are the next frontier.

But where do we go from here???

Another trend there is the price of what you happen to be consuming... haha

I've just been drinking bourbon and whiskey neat for the last year or so, I do have a set of whiskey stone shot glasses that I use on occasion if it's warm out however. They work pretty well without watering down the product too much.
