    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Bartenders really just aren't used to making martinis for people who actually like martinis. When you order, specify everything you consider important.

    For example: "Hendricks Martini, Four to one, stirred, with a twist." If they screw that up, then they either can't measure, can't read the name on the bottle, or can't stir. All of which are rather basic skills they they should have, and you can call them out on it.


    The first question out of his mouth was "what do you want in it?"[​IMG]

    Iif they are busy the bartenders usually don't bother to take their time and measure out or do a precise job, at least at the places down here.

    Had some of the new Glenfarclas 40 last night. Amazing stuff. Dare I say worth the price even?

    ^Am I forgiven for my sin if I tell you that I'm sipping on about 3/4 oz worth of E&J XO before I go to bed much later than I should be?

    Completely forgiven.

    Last night was dinner w/ friends our place and several pours of Old Pogue rocks, then a bottle of 1999 Chalk Hill cab (meh) and Schramsberg M. Brut Rose, followed by coupla' Stoli and Fever Tree tonics during cleanup and finished then off a bottle of Taylor Fladgate 10yo tawny w/ desert. Was a fun night. All the booze went down fine, but obviously nothing terribly exceptional. Awaiting my bourbon shipment.

    pop a couple aspirin in the morning, though. [​IMG] I had a bottle of Schramsberg Brut Rose as well recently, 2006.

    Nice! Chimay Blue is my favourite... white the least. You? -- Finishing off a lovely bottle of Ron Zapaca 23 currently.
    I really enjoy the blue as well. I just pour myself some hp 18. [​IMG]

    Went to the pub tonight, had a pint of stella, pint of half hoegaarden half guinness (bleh, friend told me to try it), and finished off with an absolutely lovely pint of belhaven scottish stout.

    hope I get to go back to my preferred spot next week so I can have my usual unibroue and chimay.

    Started off the night with a Ridgeway Bad King John black bitter. Then had a Beer Here - Dark Hops and then finished the night with a Liefmans Cuvee brut, all on draught. The Bad King John was my favorite. I am really surprised at the average rating on BA for this beer. Maybe the draught and bottle are 2 different beasts.

    2x Ward Eight Wait, why does this require forgiveness? And 3/4 oz is hardly extravagant. ~ H
    Ward 8s are nice. Also, if I understood Pio's post correctly, and I'm not sure I did, he was chastising people for not posting what they were drinking and using the thread to carry on about other things. So I posted what I was drinking. And no, 3/4 oz isn't extravagant. I was just having a splash right before bed. edit: also, I'm drinking a Luigi right now.
