Tonight's bar selection

I really like having a local liquor store. This store stocks all kinds of unusual and hard to find stuff. Prices are pretty good. I can get all kinds of things that the big chains stores don't sell.

Once a year I'll go in and spend some money on expensive scotch- you know, the stuff that costs $300 a bottle, so the owner remembers me and looks out for me the rest of the year.

The guy that owns it is an Indian guy. Nice guy. I've turned him into an NRA supporter, and he donates liquor and wine to us every year, so I like supporting him.

Since today is Kentucky Derby day I figured a bottle of Blanton's was in order. The bottle with the race horse stopper. https://www.blantonsbourbon.com/

This stuff can be hard to find. So I stopped in at the store. None on the shelves. I asked the owner, and he said "I was wondering when you would get here!" He went in the back and handed me a bottle.

How cool is that? I don't think there is any more of it available around here.

That's pretty awesome. About the only thing the liquor stores around me stock is the basics, Jim, Jack, Johnny, Sky and 98 varieties of moonshine

A football field away from me is a liquor stored called Friar Tuck. It's what you would call a warehouse of booze and each aisle is dedicated to whatever kind of alcohol that you would need. I'm a vodka drinker and there's probably 100 or more different brands to choose from. The same for bourbon, rum, wine, beer or whatever your heart desires. If they don't have what you need you simply ask the manager to get a case and most of the time it's there within a week.

I'm going with something different tonight, from the low carb side of the menu. It's not bad.

A glowing endorsement- "it's not bad."

Elijah Craig for me tonight. My candy store of choice is called Binny's Beverage Depot. They've got 38 stores in Illinois and carry a huge selection of spirits. There motto is "If you can't find it at Binny's it's probably not worth drinking".

One can only have so many margs on Cinco. Sipping on a bit of rum for a change of pace.
