Happy Burns Night!

Inspiring bold John Barleycorn! What dangers thou canst make us scorn! Wi’ tippeny, we fear nae evil; Wi’ usquabae, we’ll face the devil!– Robert Burns in “Tam o ‘Shanter”   No Haggis for us tonight, steak sandwiches, but definitely a dram of Scotch. I am thinking Glenlivet 18 year single malt.

Elijah Craig Single Barrel 18 Year-Old Bourbon – The Review

Driving through a small valley town after a long day in the car, I am getting in need of a drink.  I notice a corner bar, “The Duck Club”.  I park next to about 12 Ford F-150 pickup trucks (My Honda Civic is not afraid) and go into the bar.  Even though it is illegal […]

LMFAO! Maniacal Crow! (Nothing to do with liquor)

This has nothing whatsoever to do with drinking but I have not laughed so hard in quite a while.  And laughter is the best medicine, followed closely by a healthy spoonful of Irish Whiskey (Irish Whiskey has healing properties that other whiskeys do not have, perhaps because of the little people).   http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=6bt6nZdZwkY

Apparently I Live In a Cave – Metaphorically. This Song Rocks! (As it were)

This morning I was pleasantly surprised to hear this song. It is an awesome new song to add to the vast catalog of drinking songs that exist. However, I was unpleasantly surprised to note that apparently I am clueless as to the wide world since this song has been out for several months and I […]

The Silver Bullet Beats Up Bud!

According to Beer Marketer’s Insights (which, I might add, is a leading source of beer industry information) has come out with the startling information that Coor’s Light is now the #2 brand of beer by volume in the United States. It has pushed Budweiser down to the #3 spot, the first time in 20 years […]

Alcohol Censorship

Once again, the mainstream media shows its cowardice at things in real life.  It has just been reported that NBC quailed at the title “Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea,” for the new sitcom based on the book of the same title.  Apparently, even though Chelsea is a well-known two-fisted drinker and the show […]

Emergency! Washington State Drinkers, Please Help!

I was just bingeling about the Boozosphere and I was reading the Pegu Blog, a very well written boozy blog, entertaining and whatnot, when I read Doug’s alarming post about Washington State. It turns out that I live in California, the most effed up, brink of disaster, no-one-can-be-stupider, state – but in terms of alcohol, […]

Quit drinking?

There was a young fellow named Sydney, Who drank till he ruined his kidney. It shriveled and shrank, As he sat there and drank, But he had a good time at it, didn’t he?

"The harsh, useful things of the world, from pulling teeth to digging potatoes, are best done by men who are as starkly sober as so many convicts in the death-house, but the lovely and useless things, the charming and exhilarating things, are best done by men with, as the phrase is, a few sheets in the wind." ~H.L. Mencken

The Dangers of Thirst

"Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing." ~Jerome K. Jerome

The Jug of Empire!

"How solemn and beautiful is the thought that the earliest pioneer of civilization, the van-leader of civilization, is never the steamboat, never the railroad, never the newspaper, never the Sabbath-school, never the missionary -- but always whiskey!" ~Mark Twain
