    Talking Indulgence of the Night, 9/5/05 - 9/11/05

    Figured "drink of the night" isn't representative enough for a bunch of high-class boozers, smokers, etc. like us....

    Right now I am making dinner (waiting for some chickens to finish up smoking outside), drinking my last Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. The darn liquor store was closed today, so my dreams of a Ron-eque Manhattan were dashed. After the kids bedtime, I am planning on sitting outside with a snifter of Cardenal Mendoza Spanish Brandy and a pipefull of fine tobacco. I am going to spit in the eye of the fates that made me work today while others were off....

    Cool Real Men Don't Do Chicken-It's Beef for Dinner

    Vodka Gibsons on the rocks!
    Don't tell me about your pot stills, Gimme Stoly! The vodka that tubed the Soviet Union.
    6 Crystal Clear Ice Cubes in a double rocks glass
    A (healthy) double jigger of Stoly
    A short splash of Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth
    3 Ritz de Paris Escoffier Onions (It's good for your libido)
    Stir with finger, lick finger.
    Chow down on some Art and Mary's Jalapeno Chips with some salsa fresca and enjoy.
    Best regards,
    Ron

    Hey Scotto!
    What were those chickens smokin'? Do we need to call the DEA? (As they used to say on Rowen and Martin Laugh In, "Ack, another chicken joke?")
    Best regards,
    Ron

    Well (Lady and) Gentlemen,

    I'm sitting in my room in the Hilton in Woodland Hills (on Canoga) tonight on an attrocious Hitlon WiFi network, and I have braved the LAPD (thank God I'm in SoCal not NorCal, or I would be in the clink with a DUI charge) to relate to you my 'indulgence'' of the night.

    Since this is 'indulgence' of the night (I wish the distinction was made earlier as I have had some FANTASTIC meals in the previous week), I started with two Bushmill's Manhattans. I then had the best Bloody Mary I've had in the past 6 months at Chili's... Then we moved on to Maggiano's, which is GREAT Italian for the money, where we had a bottle of 00' (I think 00) Barola from Chiarlo which was superb... a little dry, but superb nonetheless, followed by two Booker's Manhattans which were almost all Bookers, and almost no Manhattan.

    -Nick

    Edit: I should mention that while I had a few, I didn't drive until the vast majority of it was out of my system, and while driving with any booze in your system isn't a good thing, I would've been heckled by the PD; however, they wouldn't have cause to 'throw me in the clink.'

    Just got this AMAZING $400 Retro FULLY handmade in the USA Pewter cocktail shaker for only $31 on ebay because it had a small ding in it!



    I had emailed the company and asked about having it repaired.... depending on how long it takes to repair - it is either free, or a small menial charge!

    Schweet!! This thing is gorgeous! Here is a LINK to the site and the shaker in question.

    I think i'll have to break it in with some manhattans... only problem is - this sucker is big enough to make 5 or 6!

    Same for me and my friends for the most part. Months ago, there wasn't even a question, as our local Chili's in Capitola had their Margarita recipe 'wrong' and used too much top shelf tequila/booze in their Margaritas, so the deal was unbeatable. Corporate has since forced them to change their ratios, but they're still a pretty good deal.
