Any reccomendations??? Preferably something under $50 if possible as my fiancee has never tried champagne before and I'm not crazy about it. But I figure since it's our one year, I gotta pull out all the stops and be my usual overly romantic self.
I don't drink it often (once a year or so at best), but here's what I know...

As far as champagne, Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label (non-vintage) is around $49 and very good. Moet should also be around that as well.

Or you could always get some Martini & Rossi Asti Spumante. ~$15. She'll think the name is fancy and cost much more. Or some other brand of Italian Prosecco (should be under 30, like a Nino Franco). Both of these are sparkling white wines, just not from the Champagne region of France and not as pricey.

Ultimately, if she has never had it, and you don't care for it, don't blow a lot on it.

Ty for your input Sir. Although I've decided not to persue this idea anymore. Why?? Well because after asking a very stealthfully worded question I just learned that my fiancee doesn't even like red or white wine. So why bother dropping around $70 Canadian on the Veuve Clicquot Brut or Moet I say. I mean champagne is just fizzy wine made from grapes from the Champagne region of France anywho so if she doesn't like normal white or red wine I figure there's no point. I'll just get her a small bottle of good vodka or whatnot. My fiancee rarely drinks anyways so...

I enjoyed too much beer and nightlife last night. I haven't felt this bad since my college days.

Check out Youtube dude. There's quite a few how-to videos there pertaining to that IIRC.

Yeah I agree but I love those flavors. To me, it's unlike all other Pumpkin beers for two reasons 1.) It has huge spice notes to go along with the pumpkin flavor and 2.) it's really ****ing good haha. It's more of a pumpkin pie beer than it is strictly pumpkin.

It's a really flavorful beer and I love how nothing compares to it. Southern Tier makes some other "sweet" specialty beers that I like as well.

Yeah, ST Pumpking is easily my favorite fall seasonal. They have an oak-aged version as well which is really tasty.

Think I might pick up two six-packs of Samuel Adams Boston Lager on Friday to drink before my fiancee and I leave for Kitchener on Sunday.

With all the stress I've endured with moving, I deserve some beers dammit.

I just signed my lease renewal for november. The next day the landlord told us they are selling the house but not to worry our lease will be honored. I have no idea if they can actually guarantee me that.

Depending on how hot or cold my apartment gets, I still wouldn't mind getting a small cigar humidor for my new desk in my room in my new apartment.

I am intimidated by the humidor seasoning process however. So many people suggest so many ways to do it and to make matters worse...they argue about the ways that are different from their methods and yeah. So much confusion.

Am looking forward to hitting up the main cigar shop in Kitchener and buying a nice smoke or two the weekend of my birthday though. Will be nice to kick back wth my fiancee, relax, drink some beers and or liqour and have a cigar...yes please.

Should try to find some Weyerbacher Imp Pumpkin, has a lot of the same spice and tones down the nuntmeg and sweetness. That's probably my favorite pumpkin.

The buyer of the property has to honor the previous lease, unless he wants to negotiate with you to leave. Damn near sure about this b/c I ran the same situation a year and a half ago in South Side.

I just had Yuengling for the first time in about a year, does it ever taste like **** to me now. It's weird that's all I ever use to drink for a couple years.

I just got a pack of Great Lakes - Nosferatu to to try.

Also tried Breckenridge - 72 Imperial Chocolate Cream Stout not too long ago. It sounded awesome, it wasn't bad but it was a little disappointing.
