That was kind of a joke. I figure you guys could all see the difference and I was playing off of it is all. Maybe a 6er of something good here and there but that's about it.

I recently reconnected with an old guy friend I hadn’t seen in about 20 years. He moved back to within 20 miles of me after living in Indiana for a long time. I had spoken in the phone to him once a year or so.

In the time I didn’t see him, he developed a 16 beers a day habit.

He is now in AA. It’s hard, but he’s been totally sober for about 60 days. I think about him a lot. It’s done so much damage to his life and his family’s life.

He drank about 3 beers a month when we were friends in the 90’s.

Right there with you. Just went from pounding Mountain Dew to work the 5 am to 10 pm + work day to unsweetened iced tea. Body already starting to look better, that should take things to the next level. I do see caffeine as something that has to stay to be at the level I need to be with this, but that way we get the energy without the extra calories. I like my vapes too. Got to be the 4% - good to be able to say that. Got no disprespect for smokers, that shit is real nice with t good alcohol buzz - my my old fart 43 year old lungs can't handle the level of tobacco buzz I need with my caffeine doing that with cigs.

So the drink of the decade has been an old fashioned.

Unfortunately, the millennials have bastardized the original recipe so when they order one, I have to ask 1000 questions to make sure I make them to their liking.

Sugar, water and bitters dissolved.
Add bourbon.

Orange peel as a garnish.


That’s the recipe.

Well played Casp, as usual.

When on a Jack bender the other night. Didn't hydrate properly.

Bad call.

Quite delicious though.

First time in Nashville and doing some day drinking

just ordered a Blanton’s

excellent nose

delicious mouth swirl and a REAL solid finish

bartender said it’s tough to get this stuff around Derby time because of the bottle tops

this bartender is getting a HUGH tip because he’s a wealth of knowledge

interesting tidbit: they charge the same for a Makers and an Angels Envy.

The bartender is in his 60’s and his name is Hutch.

Does that paint the picture of how cool this guy is?

Tron, did the same thing Friday night at the local brewery establishment. Knowledge alone on their craft beers got her a big TIP! Ended up by time we were leaving found out she was a manager who was filling in for shortage of servers! Off the Wagon Brewery had the BEST hand cut fries and geezer band was playing Steppenwolf, Cream, etc etc ..... TOP NOTCH too!
