Two big wins from the Wolverines tonight., Californication OnDemand, liquor and good craft beer. Anyone having anything to drink? Any thoughts from around the world tonight?
Tanquaray martini's for me tonight, in addition to some Fat Tire later.
Ketl on Rocks

Would you happen to be in Colorado?

Water...Got to love the Saturday-Wednesday work schedule!
Cherry Coke Zero while doing Economic Analysis of Transportation Systems homework for my Masters and then mentally getting ready to go back into work tomorrow for hell. I hate real life....I need something stronger.
What are you doing your masters in?
7 year small batch bourbon. and watching breaking bad. and the TATER SKINS! oh man what a tasty night.
It sucks that this next season will be the last
drinking orange juice
I'm finishing off a few Winter Lagers left over from the Super Bowl.
Does Vanderbilt have the strangest court in basketball or what? The benches are on the ends, the floor is elevated but only on the sides, the front rows are like 20 feet from the edge lines - it looks like a temporary court inside a football dome.
As a postmodernist, I believe you should really start thinking for yourself and learn to ignore societal pressures.
I miss logging onto a Saturday Night Open Thread and being asked about my thoughts on Keynes and Hayek.
I did, although I pointed you in a direction where my views were espoused.
As to your second point, I think you put it well in another thread...something about making people feel good being a primary goal. You know damn well that you can hold your own with 99/100 on this board.
My uncle is a person I look up to entirely; he's a father figure in a complicated life. The guy has accomplished a ton is his life, and one of his "things" is wine. Shortly after I turned 21, I was at his place with megangoblue and he asked me to give an opinion on a probably pretty damn good wine; I protested that I didn't have the taste for it, and this guy with a huge wine cellar replied that anyone can get it right, that everyone can have an educated opinion as long as you pay attention and say what you know.
To make a long story short, philosophy, economics, political science, each of those have the same foundations. Take a look at what you believe and don't let someone convince you otherwise because they have a few more classes in one subject.
I buy/drink the stuff religiously, and I've also been a little under the weather for the past few days so I figure alcohol isn't the best cold medicine.
I find alcohol the best cold medicine. :D
Make a hot toddy bro.
I recommend mixing gin with tonic, Kool-Aid, and cranberry juice. Plenty of vitamins and you still get drunk. And you won't get malaria.
I got a set of those from Sur la Table last year, and I love them. I'm not a huge fan of drinks on the rocks because of the melted water, but it's interesting being able to cool down a straight-up drink. I even use them in soda sometimes.
Please let us know how you like the whiskey stones, I've been rather intrigued by them but can never pull myself to buy some.
The ones I posted below are mine and I love them, my description above might provide some further insight. These are pretty reasonably priced, IMO, although I got them as a gift.
One of the best recent purchases I've made. If I'm not at the bar, 99% of the time I'm drinking whiskey/scotch on the rocks so it's worth it. You can keep nicer vodkas like Belvedere or Russian Standard in the freezer and not have it affect the taste but you should store whiskey at room temp.
with a splash of Scotch. Cant get to Giggy, big day tomorrow. UM SB is playing early too.
nice and neat. warms you up on a cold winter night
Had 5 Hopslams. Bout to call it a night.
Absolute Tea and organic lemonade.
Four "Double Take Amber Ales" ... and a cigar.
Let's see. I started this evening with a Miller Lite. I don't usually drink that shit, but I have a very good friend who thought to himself this evening "which of my friends is most likely to drop everything and go to a hockey game at a moment's notice?" He chose correctly, so I got a free ticket to the Joe tonight. Good times. So there was that, and now that I'm back in I thought a Killian's would do nicely.
Double bock on draft. Chicago beer. Had a few with mexican food for dinner. Yum. Thinking Highland Park 12 year scotch as a night cap when the time comes.
2009 Copain Kiser "En Bas"
Drankin bood light with gajensen and fappin to megangoblue :)
Good to know.
For anyone who wants to know, Frasier's Pub on Packard is a pretty chill place
Finishing up the last of some fine craft brews from Christmas. Lump of Coal Dark Holiday Stout (Ridgeway Brewing, UK). Much, much better than expected. A very good stout.
Perfect amount of hoppiness, IMO. Can't believe I held off on it until now, but am glad I did.
Anyone in, around, or coming through the Pensacola, FL area hit the Pensacola Bay Brewery. Spent a few hours there last night and the brew is hella good, especially the Dopple Bock. Best part is, it's across the street from Old Christ Church and can't sell alcohol. So you purchase a mug and get free beer tastings. Def should be on the "to do" list.
My ex is down there a lot, and I'm not about to tell her something cool. But that does sound amazing...
Damiana tea with chamomile flowers and some royal jelly. While drinking it I was burning frankincense tears. You know, just some major hipster garbage.
Are your other 2 buddies bringing some gold and myrrh by later?
Funny enough, l almost got some myrrh at the herb shop today too. I sure hope someone is on the way with some gold. I really need to get on attaching that star to the top of my house.
on the rocks- one of those drinks that even the worst bartenders can't screw up; but I get a bit of a headache the next morning, so maybe it's back to vodka.
