    What the hell is the difference between a plata and a blanco? And, yes, I'm feeling too lazy to look this shit up.

    There's not normally a difference between the two. It's just a silver/clear tequila. They normally have minimal "tequila flavor", which is why things like Patron silver are the favorite tequilas of the non tequila crowd. The GC plata tastes like tequila-lite, which is more tequila flavor than you would normally expect out of a white/silver tequila, but not so much tequila flavor that it would overpower a cocktail calling for a silver/white tequila like an Anejo would. Bottom line is that if you like tequila it's a great white/silver tequila, and if you don't, I'd avoid it. I was toying around with it yesterday making something for my GF and found that 1:1:2 GCP/Pomegranate Juice/Ginger ale on ice made for a ridiculously refreshing sunny day drink. Edit: forgot to add lime

    in my experience blanco or plata is bolder and has more of an agave taste than older varieties. older tequilas are smoother and more subtle.

    Wine from the Marlborough region in New Zealand. Look at the label on the bottle of Nobilo.

    Just one of those things I guess. Same reasons people call a dollar a "buck" etc. Kinda like saying a "dram" of whiskey. A book called A Drop o' Wine Good Drop wine blog

    I'd want something enclosed. That is going to collect dust.

    Have you guys ever seen a bar cart? They're not enclosed in any way. Generally speaking, enclosed bar's are expensive. Not something that I'm looking for at the moment.

    Yep, been looking for a bar cart for a while actually. I wouldn't keep it fully stocked or even stocked at all unless I needed to. Try searching for a buffet, sideboard or credenza. I have an antique buffet that I use but I am unsure how that would fit in with your decor. I keep an empty decanter on top with a few glasses and everything else is underneath. My stock is kept behind panel doors but I could have just as easily went with glass. Edit: Similar to this but with a mirror. [​IMG]

    Good beer is good beer. Doesn't matter what the temperature is outside. If it makes you feel better I had a Terrapin Rye Pale Ale the other day.

    After I moved overseas I learned that near my home in NW Indiana is one of the best microbrews in America. Last time I visited, my mom picked up some for me. Three Floyds out of Munster is worth trying if you haven't.

    (I think it might be the water. The city of Munster bottles their tap water and sells it regionally to great success. They call it "Hinkley Springs")
