It was back in stock, and we bought another case.

I love this wine. It is so yummy (and cheap!) If they keep it in stock, then we can just pick up a case every couple months when we are there. Otherwise I feel like we should hoard it.

As long as it doesn't crowd out wheaties shelf space.

I picked up a 12 of Ruthless Rye IPA. It was nice. I really like Sierra nevada's beers; they are well balanced and drinkable. Currently reading his biography, "beyond the pale"

My Wheaties hoard is a shadow of its former self. I think I may only have half a dozen boxes. They haven't made a pricing mistake since the last one.

I heard on the car radio that the feathers used to make Big Bird's costume are turkey feathers. Now that you know, if you drink too much Wild Turkey you may see Big Bird instead of a pink elephant.

Twil and I recently went to Portland for some roller derby fun, and after the bout we decided to walk around downtown. It was bitterly cold and we finally found refuge in a restaurant. The hot drinks were very appealing and we had one called the Fogcutter. Very simple, hot coffee and Avion Espresso Liquer (tequila and espresso).

OMG.

Sooooooo goooooood.

We made it a point to buy a bottle before coming home and we were able to duplicate the drink at home, it's delicious. On the heels of that victory, and inspired by Gravdir's cherry bomb, I decided to make a batch myself.

one part tequila
one part vodka
two parts moonshine (unaged whiskey)
one bag Cafe Rio candies (from Trader Joe's)

Add all the ingredients (the booze amounted to about a fifth/750 ml), shake, let dissolve, shake some more, etc. Drink. De-lishiz1!!

We found a French red like this there -L'Authentique. Also about $4. Also in and out of stock so I buy it by the case, although we don't drink wine all that often. but it's really good.

Cup of coffee so I can stay awake to watch the meteor shower.

I've run out of money this month, already, so, it's Bud Light (or whatever's there).

Spending the weekends with friends, brought some of my precious Mad Elf stock along, then learned that they live down the street from s microbrewery (Free Will Brewing). Came home from a tasting with a half a load on and mango wheat beer and a smoked Porter. Ah, deliciousness.

Grabbed some Budweiser's margaritas as I left the party today. Yeah, drinking that tonight.
