Happy New Year! I'm at home re-reading Joseph Mitchell, but will be off to the last night at Timboo's very soon.

@GENE: Slow and steady wins the race! Have fun out in Baltimore!

@rr: Have you checked Amazon? Glad you've made it this far!

@onemorefoldedsunset: Happy New Year! Enjoy the last night at Timbo's. Try and get a photo if you can.

@MAD ... you must be ill today ... I've seen you down some serious booze that would choke a horse ! i.e. remember a few weeks ago at Stillwater ... we all had 4 mixed drinks in like 39 minutes - and then Terry fell asleep standing up in the bar - and I had to go back inisde and rescue him .... UFB !

@GENE: I'll speed up as the night progresses! I forgot about Terry passing out at the bar, classic BBC moment! One for the books!

@MAD ... until that day - I had no idea a human could pass out - and be standing straight up !

I had a 22 oz Arrogant Bastard with dinner last night. I was not pacing myself very well. ;)

@Britta: I've never heard of that kind of beer, I'll have to Google it.

Cheese spread is tasty, ain't it? I just got back from a trip to Vermont with my friend CJ and guess what I got? Cabot Halapeno Cheddar spread. Throw that shit on some Cabernet crackers and sit back and enjoy the ride! I don't know if you can get it at your local bodega, but they have a website and it's definitely worth the order. In fact, get the block stuff too and do a little taste test. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to make a trip to the fridge.

Wait...it's not jalapeno. It's habanero. Habanero Spreadable Cheddar. And it rocks.
