    Dos Equis Beer

    Bought it purely for the advertising, but it's a pretty decent beer. Good for a hot day, like a Corona.

    yeah, I've always like Dos Equis actually. I like it a lot more than Corona, which I just think tastes like watery flat urine.

    Audiophilia, if you like that cab, try the 05 BV Rutherford. Same price point, and roundly agreed to be a better wine.

    Will do. But the Ray was not all that good, at least for the Canadian price. In my newb/score it'd be 88/100.

    I think you're being generous. I cracked a Martin Ray SB last night. Very meh.

    There's a restaurant chain I've visited, while traveling, called Chuy's Mesquite Broiler. http://www.bajachuys.com/ Nothing better than sitting in the warm sun, in January, having a pitcher of Dos Equis on Chuy's patio, while eating their tri-tip [​IMG] Almost as good as an authentic hole-in-the-wall place like you can find in small towns in the southwest.

    First post here, cracked a bottle of Domaine Ste. Michelle Brut with some sushi tonight. Now I am drinking Newman's Own Special Blend Extra Bold Organic coffee. Also, the Flavium Crianza 2005 is awesome. I opened close to a case of this already. A great everyday old style wine.

    06 Siduri Close Pepe. I decanted for 45 minutes. It has been getting nice reviews.

    I hated it.

    Nose was just hot alcohol. No PN earth or berry. No structure on the tongue, very flabby. High in acid, no depth. Just a very forgettable wine.

    game night, so some Pieroni w/ some of the best Neapolitan pizza around.

    And then I'm finishing the night with a glass of gin and a hint of lime (Hendricks, love the cucumber edge)

    Luzzo's (on 96th St.), as recommended by Salvatore Ambrosi. Its only 3 blocks from where I live now. Its just a tiny place and very under the radar, but excellent pizza and superbly priced. Add a Peroni or a light Dolcetto or Barbera d'Asti, call some friends over, and its an excellent night. Also, they have a special going on right now, $1.50 for a slice of cheese, can't beat it (and they actually use the imported mozzarella balls, not the pre-grated stuff from Sam's Club).

    more Pieroni tonight for me.

    Pio - give that Barolo 10-15 years, and then decant it overnight. Lovely stuff, I have some single vineyard Barolos from 2001 that I am putting aside with the intention of revisiting in 2 more decades.

    Oh yeah, I intend to give that a long nap. I made the mistake of committing vinfanticide once on a poor Barolo.

    though I must say, the I've had 4 fresh Barolos that drank quite well young (they were 2004's!). Very weird vintage.

    A shot of Dorville VSOP Brandy to wash down these painkillers [​IMG]

    Not my usual repertoire, but I got this excruciating toothache, so trying to speed up the painkilling effects.

    Otherwise, I'm quite fond of Martini Bianco, and Campari.
    But not together.
