a 5th of soco , shot style with DP chaser with the roommate. were finishing this shit
OT: Anyone drinking anything good tonight?
Love SoCo. My roommate and I lived off handles of SoCo 100 my freshman year. Damn those were some good nights.
wow, you sir are a total badass, we bought a 100 proof liter on accident before (we went to super liquor IV and asked for a 5th and they gave us a liter) and finished it and wondered why we felt like shit the next day.
Yea, by good I meant interesting. Oh, freshman year.
true story, my gf went to florida and during hurricane katrina for some reason all/some of the trucks that were supposed to be going to louisiana were re-routed to gainesville. they sold beer for $5 (it was around that, shes alseep so i can't confirm the price but it might have been less) a 24 pack (bud/bud light) and the trucks went like water in the desert. Our friends bought enough to make a throne in their garage, there are pics of them sitting in it
Sooo cool. Especially considering what you pay out on the town or at a sporting event. I'd kill for a throne of Bud at a Wing's game.
the only problem is how do you keep that much beer cold. they had a party that night since they couldnt figure out how to do it
Yea, but...wouldn't that be a good problem to have? "My insanely cheap, not that terrible beer won't keep cold for long!"
So Co is where it's at player. My personal preference is straight from the bottle but shots aren't bad either.
it warms you right up
white_pony_rocks mom warms me right up to.
I hate you and its your turn to pour the shot you douchebag fuck
I'll have your mom pour the next shot when she gets a free minute.
yeah well you got accepted to U of M and decided to go to toledo you douche
Same school colors, in-state and/or cheaper tuition, close enough to drive up for games, plenty of M fans in the city. What's not to like?
they do have a 5 guys and a chik fil a, although we'll have 5 guys come the 17th (i think, i havent been down town since cosi went under)
Ever been to the Village Idiot bar? It's a little pricey but they have really good pizza.
I got accepted, which is something that you will never be able to say.
I'm still celebrating my release from Bolivia.
I was shocked to see how quickly you got freed earlier, FuManBlue. I gave you my three (or maybe four?) plus ones I could on the thread, but god damn. I remember seeing one of your comments at like +125. Truly incredible.
PS- Pick up any good beer (or wine or liquor) in Bolivia?
plenty of cocaine.
Well congrats to you for being in the black (and at +1500!?!?!?!?). Must have been a hell of a journey. Here's to Bolivia, FuMan.
If FuMan keeps up this level of pos-banging, he'll be at +10,000 in a week.
10,000 or no 10,000, he looks happy to be out of jail and back....into the big house?
bolivian cocaine... isnt that a song??
Congrats, fuman. Time to change the avatar now that you've been released to the half-way house.
edit: oops, my bad. Looks like you're on your way. Enjoy your night.
You are my mgoblog hero. I aspire to get out of Bolivia some day.
I told a joke I had heard on the radio earlier that week on the Norte Dame thread. I'm guessing Brian deemed that the joke was inappropriate, which I agree it was. I was never able to see the reaction to the joke, but I'm guessing it wasn't good. I signed on again later that night and notice that I had to enter CAPTCHAs on every post.
That is basically the story about how I got pwned.
The ND rape/sexual assault thread?
Pisco, por favor, que riiiiicoooooo!!!!
glass of sorrow.
and you're on a budget, Corner Creek is a great choice. $5 off at the liquor store tonight! It really is better than most.
Where did you find that seal of the University? I never saw anything like that when I was a student there.
Not a bad brown ale. Big Sky Brewing Company, Missoula, MT!
I'm stuck in Fort Wayne, IN at the moment, so none here. I've heard great things though. I'm originally from Chicago, but haven't gotten into the Goose Island stuff until recently.
Have you tried their Matilda? Very good stuff.
I like Matilda as well. Very good!
Since you seem to know your way around Goose Island.
Have you tried their Bourbon Stout? I was back home over the holidays, but at $22 a four-pack, I figured I'd better have some damn good advice before buying it.
On the other hand, it's like 13% abv. So at the very least:
GI Bourbon Stout= 13
1BS=2.66 Budweiser (4BS=10.64B=feeling pretty damn good)
Although if it's anything like their other beers, that'd be an abomination.
New Holland Brewery makes a fine stout aged in bourbon barrels. Very good bourbon flavor! I have to restock on my next trip to MI!
I'll have to try the GI bourbon stout. I'm sure it is great!
Had that this Christmas with family in Grand Rapids, very good.
Thats to bad. Ft. Wayne sucks.
Being a college student, it's not that bad. My gf is on the softball team here, so that might make it a bit more tolerable, if you catch my drift.
OT to this response: Wooooo! 1,000!
just the way I like 'em.
Newcastle Brown Ale all by my lonesome
You should try Sweetwater 420 or IPA. Its a micro out of atlanta. I don't know how wide thier distribution stretches. I live in the south and its everywhere. Its very good if you can find it.
Sweetwater has a very limited distribution- I think getting it here in North Carolina is as far North as you can.
I got through another 20-credit week (typical schedule starts at 8:30 AM and lasts to 5:30 PM) and I'm celebrating with water in honor of David Lynch's Dune. I don't care how much it distorts the source material.
If you're wondering why I'm drinking water, it's because I have to get up tomorrow at 7:30 for required volunteering. Thursday is actually my best day of the week because I get to sleep in until 9:30.
Gotta love required volunteering
George Dickel wiskey! and some Trader Joe's beer...
ha ha, Dharma beer. looks like the beer from Lost.
Can't beat a dollar a beer! A six pack for $6 is just too good to pass up.
I drank a lot of it back when I lived near a T-Joe's
Trader Joe's have their own beer?
The flavors include "vienna", "hofbraau" and "heffeweisen" (sp?)....not sure why I seem to have become the TJ spokesperson...
2006 Anthill Farms pinot noir, Demuth Vineyard. Yaktooki, it's good.
If you ever pass through south of Eugene, OR, King Estate winery is a great stop. Excellent restaurant at the winery with some mighty fine Pinot!
anybody who talks about pinot noir on this board gets pos banged. +1 to both of you fine gentlemen
edit: or gentlewomen
not sure how you ffel about foreign wines but to me it doesnt get better than OR pinot noirs
Love burgundy. It's the effin' SOURCE, man.
Anderson Valley (where Anthill sources from) is like California's Oregon. The guys who operate the winery are great dudes--they're in their late 20's/early 30's and they make better wine than almost anyone else in California.
Hop Slam just hit the shelves at most places this week, get you some
I am serious but please don't call me Shirley
Well I may not be drinking the best stuff okay it's probably the worst and cheapest in this thread by a lot but I'm enjoying some MD20/20... Okay I'm not really enjoying it but it's a Friday, I'm on a budget, and it gets the job done.
+1 for getting the job done. Whatever it takes, man. Just keep working hard at it.
MD20/20 and Schaffers beer were some of my forced favorites while in college. They were cheap. Though, I liked to party with my richer friends!
I like to party with them too but I felt like 10 Mad Dogs was a good use of my money. My fridge looks like the rainbow right now. I will admit orange actually tastes good. What was ur favorite?
If I get a vote in this, it's orange.
Dragonfruit is good too but it might be a fairly new flavor.
You must be 16 if drinking MD!
No I'm in college. Haha. Mad Dog for life.
HopSlam and some assorted Short's beers.
Shorts is where it's at
Sunny D and rum yum yum
Is cracking the Bell's Hopslam tomorrow night (well, tonight, technically). Anyone ever had it? Was wondering if it was worth the trip.
My uncle has great taste and drinks it. Haven't had it personally, but I'd go if I was in your position. Then again, that's just me.
10% and it's amazing.
It's awesome, just give yourself some time to drink it.
Just the usual weekend Texican Boilermaker: Tequila shot followed by a can of Pearl Beer. Actually, it's not bad.
Looking forward to the day when I can once again afford Hornitos (c'mon stock market....)
HOPSLAM. Minikeg. Boom.
Always worth the trip bossman.
The Brandy is a few years past its "Born On Date" so I'm mixing with some Hawaiian Punch packets.
Do you regularly do this? Ironically enough I have some brandy just sitting around. It was bottom shelf stuff (bought to try making eggnog) and I don't know what the hell to do with it.
I downed almost half a glass at a party last weekend, but it only looked cool until I needed something to eat as a chaser.
Have you drank X-Rated? It tastes like that. Kinda fruity with a little kick.
I tried some of it with on the rocks last month and almost met my maker. So I can't sign off on doing that. I'm a little heavy handed when I pour, so that could have been the problem!
Never tried X-Rated, but it seems like we have the same problem, so maybe I'll steer clear. Then again, I did chase it with a shitty piece of cheese last weekend and have some halfway decent chedder here...
Wow, that's interesting. I have some shredded sharp so now you're giving me something to think about. I would throw out the bottle, but I guess I'm too cheap to throw out cheap/bad liquor.
If I didn't know any better, we might be related.
Yea, I was at a friends house (college shithole) and saw Auburn kick their FG, so I took the bottle out of my backpack, poured a decent amount and chugged it. At that point I went, "Oh fuck." and scrambled to the fridge where the only thing I found were some Kraft Singles. Worked fine for me that night.
That's impressive. The only time I ever did that was when Mateen Cleaves was drafted by the Pistons. I went to my kitchen and downed some Tequila. I went for some milk -- don't know why -- and proceed to watch the rest of the draft with my roomate.
Very funny story.
Wanna take a stab at that brandy and chedder, or no?
I just did some reading and found out that one of my old co-workers were caught up in the DC Madam scandal a couple years ago. All the drinking we used to do and he couldn't hook me up, not once.
So now I have to make a few phone calls!
Does phone call mean baseball bat beating? Although I don't even want to think of paying Eliot Spitzer money to get laid.
Tried the brandy and cheese in not nearly as intoxicated a state.
Still bad. Ugh. It'll work, but wow is it bad.
From now on if it's a bottle, I'm not buying it unless it says Patron or Jameson on the label.
That sounds disgusting!
You just have to mix the right amounts. If you've drank X-Rated or Hypnotiq, it's similar to that.
Ever drink it garnished with cherries? Or with grenadine?
I just add a little water.
If you put the cherries in the bottom of the glass, they're delicious when you've finished your drink. As in, delicious enough that someone should sell them.
Thanks, will try soon.
Every since I went to the factory I am hooked on Jack Daniels. I feel so refined! Go Blue!
The new stuff. It's good
Drinking it in a cocktail or straight?
really? i have to be honest, i actually didnt like the makers 46 more than regular makers, and definitely didnt think it was worth the extra premium $$ per bottle.
has anybody had a boot of warsteiner at heidelberg? my roommate (raoul douche) and my dad swear by it
Funny we both swear by your mom also.
Boot + Warsteiner = Heaven
If a post is more than ten words long I lose interest. I guess i broke my own standard.
Believe it or not I did not drink until I turned 21. I think I should get a prize!
Do not knock it till you try it!!!!
Delirium tremens. It us an excellent beer and I recommend everyone try it.
The Dude Abides
I really like Delirium Tremens. I always look forward to Delirium Noel when it comes out. I also like the pink elephants.
John Daly's alll night!
Had to look that one up. +1 simply for having an Arnold Palmer with a shot of vodka thrown in to make it a John Daly.
Seagrams recently came out with sweet tea vodka. Also Absolut did that promotion that picked three cities. One of them was Boston, which was a black tea infused vodka. That was really good mixed with lemonade.
yea that's what I had, seagrams sweat tea with lemonade.
Crown Royale w/cheese. =]
Just topped off my cup with more purple drink.
gin and tonic
Is that any good? I saw the badass bottle today.
It is actually very good. They had a promotion or something at the Bev Mo by my house. I bought a bottle of it and brought it with me to Vegas.
I am a gin drinker, but my friend who isn't even liked and started to drink it straight with me.
Normally I'm a fan of gin only when it's halfway decent. If I could give a prize for "best liquor when good, worst when bad" I would pick gin.
But I do love a good Tanqueray and tonic or just a classic martini.
Edit- Do you like Hendrick's, by any chance?
I have had Hendricks before. I was told that it is really good, but when I tried it I was not a fan. I liked Prestige Gin more which was $9 and came in a plastic bottle. There was something strange about the Hendrick's.
Edit: I might have ti try Hendricks again, when I'm not already drunk off really cheap gin.
Hendrick's is distilled with cucumber, not juniper. That's the odd thing you're tasting.
Yech, I'm a gin drinker too and I can't stand New Amsterdam. Give me anything else but it.
I'm guessing it's personal preference more than anything else.
It might have been good since I wasn't expecting it since I haven't heard much about it. I used it just to pre party before I started to pay ungodly amounts of money for weak cocktails.
Started drinking this in Uganda, and have found one place locally that sells it. The joys of living in a former British colony. For the price, a nice everyday scotch, and I do like scotch every day!!
part of my new years resolution to lose me some flab....whoo hoo good times here I come
