^^ That's a fair question. When we've had events in the past, the men tend to clam up with women in the room. Maybe they don't want to come off as metrosexual or whatever. It's kind of like going to a bar, having a room full of women and only five guys putting in work. This way, we figure anyone there is interested in the topics and will be more inclined to participate. Women will come after the event for drink specials with them in mind.

My mom was an OK cook, but didn't particularly enjoy it unless it was for a big event. My old man was a decent cook, strictly out of necessity. Because of living with him after my parents divorced, I eventually picked up the Betty Crocker cookbook in the kitchen and started cooking. I couldn't take another weekend of the Saturday Night Special (hot dogs and pork n' beans, or some variation on the theme). He got better after a while, but the seed had been planted. Now, my...

Just ran across this article about vermouth, another fortified wine, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...032000273.html. It states vermouth and other fortified wines such as port go bad (not as potent, lacking flavor, flabby) after a month. This is similar to what I learned about madiera.

One Mo' Gin, D'Angelo CHORUS: "I wonder all this time what might have been, and I always hoped that I'd see you again. I'd love to kiss your lips, baby, once again. I'd love to hold you tight, baby, one mo' gin" It was a particular depressing few weeks after running into an ex who I'd messed things up with and that song lived in my CD player. Not enough scotch and cigars to drown out that ache, and the song made it that much sweeter.

I might suggest Cuba Libre, next to 32 Degrees. Alma de Cuba could be nice, too. Good...

But as a performing guitarist, Hendrix was a revelation, and the better blues...
