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.
Style Forum: I've been a memeber of the site for a year and have greatly enjoyed reading the posts. I hope this doesn't violate any sort of etiquette, but I'd like to invite those in the Philadelphia area to come out to the event below. Men's-Only Happy Hour in Philly, March 29 Be Better Guys is hosting an men's only event with Philadelphia STYLE magazine on Thursday, March 29, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at Water Works Restaurant and Bar, talking about "The Guy's Guide to...
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...

Eric Clapton was and is a better technician, has a wonderful feel and incredible restraint -- not a term you'd associate with Hendrix. Jeff Beck has all of Hendrix's fire with better chops. But as a performing guitarist, Hendrix was a revelation, and the better blues...

Thank you for the correction. The thing is, as a man Steve Rogers is out of touch; as a symbol, Cap is...

Quote: Originally Posted by Nick M There's an old adage in the comic business, regarding the deaths of characters: "No one in comics stays dead, except Bucky, Jason Todd and Uncle Ben." One problem: Bucky's not dead. He was captured by the Soviets, turned into a black-ops agent, aka the Shadow Soldier, was intricately involved in the death of Wolverine's Japanese wife, and was recently running around trying to kill Logan again (See Wolverine...

She makes me want to gouge my eyes out and tear my ears off every time she's on-screen. Umm, the whole idea is that is UNUSUAL. Joan Cusack makes total sense, under these circumstances. Some of these choices aren't particularly unusual. Julia Child would be an...
I forgot all about Lee Marvin in Point Blank! Malevolence personified -- the remake, Payback, with Mel Gibson wasn't bad, especially the two dirty cops.
