Hats and Drinks - A Match Made in Heaven

Discussion in 'Hats' started by Alive'n'Amplified, Mar 6, 2013.

  1. I ended up not going. Tickets were expensive, it was held at a local casino & I probably would have reserved a room there rather than drive home. About half of the distillers going to be there are local so I can sample them by the drink anytime. Wasn’t going to be worth the expense.

    And got to join the singer Walt for some Wagon Wheel. That was fun… haven’t had the chance to loosen up the pipes like that in some time.

  6. A new place opened up recently. I wish they sold their glassware.

    At first I thought the image might be Waylon Jennings but I believe it's supposed to be the company founder back in ~1953.

    Cheers! I hope all enjoyed the American Thanksgiving Holiday or enjoyed their Thursday.

    The agreed upon electronic media ban yesterday at our house was followed by my wife and I and all our guests. Enjoyable to see people conversing. I opened cookbooks that I have not touched for a long time to confirm cook temps and times. I had put out on a consul table a couple of dictionaries that folks actually used. It can be done. A discussion of whether to turn on the TV's in the house ended with the decision to have only one with football and the others playing DVD movies. Our choices of "oldster" (40's ganster and noir movies) and a couple old cowboy movies were a hit with our 10 guests. Fun, we will definitely do this again. To a person our guests said they would like to do the same. We are back to using media this morning.

    Yesterday a Dangerous Man pilsner, a Founders KBS in the evening and of course coffee in the morning.

    I took no pics of the whiskey tasting by the fire pit. I took out only 3 bottles (Wee Beastie, Macallan 12 and Four Roses (single barrel). I provided cordial and cairn glasses so folks could sample away. Two other bottles were provided by guests (Johnny Walker Black and a Green Spot). I thought it was a fun way to share the moment and some whiskey.

    Cheers, Eric -

    Now that its in the 20's in Nashville, time to pull the old flask out of the cabinet and fill up with some single-malt. I missed out on a couple of small vintage sterling flasks, so I went in this direction... glass, faux alligator (I think), and a tin cup. My kid-in-law is still dragging me out to fish, so it'll be getting some use.

    The brewery is in Raleigh. If I ever get over there, maybe I’ll pick one up for you.
