“I deserve to get drunk”

On Monday and Tuesday of this week I attended a train-the-trainer workshop for TIPS, a group that focuses on responsible alcohol sales and service.  Part of the curriculum was this stand-up routine from Bill Cosby.  It was a nice distraction from the other films, which consisted primarily of bad actors sipping food-colored water in bars and restaurants with décor from the 1980s. 

I realize that this is the second video I’ve posted featuring Mr. Cosby – must be a holdover of good feelings from watching the Cosby Show as a kid.

Friday fun – “I love Scotch”

Seems like a good morning to watch Will Ferrell doing his thing as Anchorman.

This beer will not touch my lips

It’s not the fact that the beer has 55% alcohol or that it costs over $700 per bottle, rather it’s that I’ve had a long and unpleasant history with squirrels.

Breathalyzer before buying

I never anticipated that buying wine would have anything to do with homeland security technology. 

Pennsylvania is testing out vending machines for wine.  The bottle of Korbel I spied in the video doesn’t instill much confidence, though I’m all for making it more convenient for folks to buy and enjoy wine.

A high tech gin and tonic for Jimmy Fallon

Dave and Nils were on Jimmy Fallon’s show this past Friday night. Jimmy does a great job of making fun of Nils’s accent.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Katie Lee’s summer selections

This had the potential to be a disaster, but I was pleasantly surprised by her picks.  <insert jokes about “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant” here>  I’m in favor of boxed wine and we’ve featured both the Château du Champ des Treilles and the Christian Venier on our list before.
