Friday Night Drinking Thread

Submitted by swan flu on February 24th, 2012 at 8:14 PM

After making a nice eggs benedict with home fries (entirely from scratch), I had a freshly squeezed screwdriver with dinner (thanks to the fiance for that one).


Now I'm on to a few remaining Bass pale ales.  Maybe later I will pour myself a glass of Oregon whiskey.


It is a good night, my friends.

I live in the yoop (near Marquette), about as far away from Ohio you can get and still live in Michigan.


With that said, tonight I'm drinking UV Cake Vodka mixed with Creme Soda, and I may just wake up in the woods somewhere.

Who makes eggs benedict at home?  Don't get me wrong, I love eggs benedict, but I would never want to make it.  Did you have Hallandaise and everything?

My aunt is an amazing, trained cook/chef/whatever, and her homemade eggs benedict is one of my favorite things ever.

She also owns/operates a food delivery/catering service in A2 that I've been meaning to plug on here; I can guarantee that the food is delicious, if anyone is interested in taking a look or ordering.

Edit: probably not the best time to put this out there, since she's taking her annual vacation next week, but whatever. I encourage everyone in Ann Arbor to take a look. It's high quality, local and healthy.

I'm looking forward to seeing more of our regulars this Wednesday.  Though I don't think Shea is in the lineup, which would have been fun to watch with the likes of Dempsey, etc...

and so far have had a couple of beers my brother-in-law brought over:  Heavy Seas Loose Cannon and Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye.  The first I've had before and it's pretty solid.  The latter not so much.

From there I'll probably grab one of my latest acquisitions, Troegs Nugget Nectar.   People seem to be pretty excited about that one.   My only problem is that I can't help but comparing beers to Hopslam now and NN is no Hopslam.

The usual for me. Starting off with some wine (sauvignon blanc) and moving on to Fat Tire later. Looking for a movie to watch; I think I have it down to Taxi Driver or a 90's indie called Flirting With Disaster, anyone have any thoughts?

After the Boxed Franzia last week (shit did get real) I thought I would tone it down a little this week with some Blue Moon Spring Blonde Wheat Ale.

I gotta say, though, it's next Friday's drinking adventures I'm really looking forward to.  This time next week I'll be in Peru, celebrating my cousin's wedding.  I hope they have good beer down there.  Got to try the local brew wherever you go.

I'd disagree with you about the outcome, of course (haha). Not a bad game for her, but not the greatest, either. Batting wise, they just couldn't capatalize on pitching that apparently wasn't as good as the stats suggest. Either way, your Owls won and you have to respect that at the end of the day.

It was a looong week at work... spent the first part in Colorado, then had to go to Florida.  And for those of you who might think work trips are fun and glamorous... trust me, they're not.  They get old real fast.
