90 posts and no one pointed out insurance costs, especially with being under 25. I find the under 10K market to be difficult especially if your not very hands on with things. The other thing you really need to keep in mind is storage of said 2nd/weekend car. That will really limit your living arrangements especially around a major city. Especially when they require a dedicated garage. Trust me, it quickly becomes a bane, especially when you are really attached to...

I use to work with an extreme minimalist. owned a total of 3 shirts, 2 pairs of pants, 5 pairs of socks and underwear, and 2 pairs of shoes. I have been working the last couple years to get down to his level. I've found outfits can be quite repeatable BUT you have to pick up something fresh every other month or so.

Had Goose Island's Marisol the other day (it was a collaboration with Rick Bayless) http://www.rickbayless.com/news/view?articleID=179 It was pretty bad. I don't know about anyone else but I can't drink 312 on draft, it always has a skunky taste to me, and I found this to be very similar.

They had some menu shakeups and some great beers. I had the monkey bread, duck fat fries, goat tartar, hand cut noodles with escargot, and the chorizo verde.

rose 31 today (thanks rambo), first thought was how can I make my bed linens smell like this.
So a buddy left a bottle of Firestone Double Jack in my fridge a few weeks ago. Well temptation got the best of me. I must say that is a damn good beer! and I got surprisingly lit up from it. now to find a way of replacing it... hmmm.
