I'll be rummaging the fridge when I get home from work. I'm guessing some sort of rum and some sort of cola. Went to the Dave Matthews Band concert on Tuesday and hit the bar Wednesday night so I'm a little sick of beer right now. Could use a change-up.

I have a combination  of Strongbow Cider and Fuller's (alternating drinks) going tonight...it  should prepare me for preparatory yardwork for my daughter's birthday party (the actual day is today, so we took her to her favorite place - oddly enough, Cracker Barrel), which is one week from tomorrow.

Oberon while grilling asparagus, mushroom kebobs, and kobe burgers.

After dinner I'll be switching to Bulleit and Coke since I'll need something stronger to handle the fiancee's incessant wedding planning.

Not that I'm an expert, but wouldn't making hamburgers with real Kobe beef be like making them with filet mignon? Kind of an overkill for ground beef patties. Also highly recommend you read this


Basically any Kobe beef bought in the US isn't really Kobe beef. It's illegal to import.

Living in Toledo, I managed to get my hands on my first Arctic Panzer Wolf bomber...delicious. Grabbed a 6er of 21st Bitter American and good ole Miller Lite to seal the deal.

It took me 5 establishments over a 2 and a half week stretch to find any Three Floyds...$12 for a bomber...well worth the hunt. Bought the last 2 bottles the place had. The owner said that they hear from the 3F rep once a month if they're lucky and get  dozen bottles or so at at time...so needless to say its a hot commodity. Meet me 100% of the way and I'll let you drink the dribbles at the bottom. For free cause youre a Michigan Man.

Got a six pack of Bell's pale ale and some left over vodka.  Watching tigers game in the back yard on the deck. Go tigers!

Hope everyone makes it through the 13th ok.

until I'm off work in about an hour. Then hopefully some wine, although I did promise MGB we wouldn't really be drinking this weekend. Maybe if it's a surprise it'll go over more smoothly?
