Had a rack of ribs at Chilies that I actually liked quite a bit, either they were good or I need to recalibrate my taste buds. Anyway, washed them down with a few Sam Adams lager drafts and had a Maker's Mark to help digestion. As 'common' as Sam Adams is, I still find it to be a nice draft beer.
Bourbon night here too larceny followed by eagle rare and a little bit of old potrero rye for good measure.

We just got our home offer accepted for our very first home. And the sticker shock just hit... Tonight is a double of Pappy to calm the nerves, and a triple of Evan to shut up the voices asking what the hell we just did...
Congratulations on the Pappy, oh and the house too.
Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries. Now go away you silly man or I shall taunt you a second time!

Congratulations, Ben! Enjoy the Pappy--I haven't had any in years.
Tonight is the last of a bottle of Blanton's, followed perhaps by a new bottle of Michter's Route 1.
Remember the days where you could just walk into any decent liquor store and find a nicely aged bourbon on the shelf? Remember that? Or even potentially find a bottle of Pappy?!?! Well I don't know when it happened, but I'm pretty sure it was after all of these NYC foodies and chefs (*cough* Chang *cough*) starting blabbing their damn mouths about the stuff, that now the only aged bourbon on the shelf is a bottle of ****** ass 15 yr Scouts that costs $65... And that's if you can even FIND it.
You know what kills me worse than Pappy's scarcity though? I was in a local shop the other day, and behind their locked display case they had a bottle of 6 year Sazerac Rye. That **** is now so rare it's behind their friggin' display case... It's a rough time to be an American Whiskey lover, guys...
