    I do love GM but treat it with respect. I can't make it to B-more this weekend but have a great time!
    NOOOO!

    The bottles of GM are for everyone .... you have to understand the bar. It's the first and only Grand Marnier club. You buy your bottle from the bar and they keep it for you. There are about 800 members to the club everyone of those members has a bottle in one of their many cases throughout the bar.

    They need to update their web site, but here is a link: www.oneeyedmikes.com

    My two spirits o' choice are Bombay Sapphire and Jack (with coke).
    I do find it strange that Jack Daniels is the most popular bourbon (whiskey???) in the UK and yet Jim Beam is the most popular in the rest of the world.

    Tanqueray is a good alternative to Bombay Sapphire

    Not sure why you avoid Maker's Mark. They aren't a mass-quantity distillery as their product is a handmade bourbon. I'm an ambassador of their bourbon and have my name on a barrel that is about to mature. They will sell me a couple bottles of "my" bourbon but I have to travel to Loretto KY to get it. Not sure I want to make that trek.

    You should revisit Maker's Mark. Cheers!
    Agreed. My "every day" whiskey is Makers Mark. I kept a bottle with the purple wax, commemorating the Ravens SB win. It's sitting on my shelf in my office!

    If you havnt done so already, join the Embassadors Club. They do free tastings and I even walked away from one meeting with two free bottles.

    Cool, I didn't know they did a purple wax bottle. I am an Ambassador but haven't been to a tasting. Closest they've come was Destin, and that's an hour away. Maybe I'll go the next time.

    We were supposed to eat at the Ruth's Chris Pier V location last night.

    That is until they evacuated the whole place due to a carbon monoxide leak.

    We pull around the corner and saw about 20 emergency vehicles.

    What a weird night.

    That Grand Marnier is good stuff, but it sure packs a next-day wallop, eh Houston?

    Hair of the dog worked wonders today for the SB .... I just loved seeing the Pats fans at Max's skulk out after Eli of all QB's beat their arses!

    Ahhhh....something I can talk about!! Not that anybody asked, but I'm a Vodka guy. I know it's a little 'froo-froo" but a good Apple Martini is good anytime of the day. Nothing special though, just some quality vodka & sour apple pucker. a 1:3 ratio works best, on the rocks. Hard to look manly in a bar with a neon green drink in a martini glass. That's why I drink alone, in a darkened room... Drink up everyone, for tomorrow may be the end.
