I did not hit the bar over last night, so this is pretty much a hangover free Thursday. I know myself, if I had gone to the bar for just one or two drinks I’d have stayed for Trivia. And then for another couple drinks. And then something else would happen. And then I’d be leaving at 11. So instead of all that, I just hung out at home. I did not need to feel like death this morning and that is exactly how I felt the past two weeks.
So instead of telling you what I drank last night, I’m going to tell you about a book I bought that tells me what I should be drinking. Or something like that. Robert Schnakenberg wrote a book called, Old Man Drinks: Recipes, Advice, and Barstool Wisdom.
What you get in this small hardcover is 70 drink recipes with info on the drinks origin. In addition you get some great photos and quotes from old men that enjoy drinking. So if you want to find out what is in a Rusty Nail or Side Car this is the book for you.
A little booze’ll make you charming, a little more will make you an ass. I hope to ride that line tonight.
