    Just listened to Transformer all the way through for the first time in a few years. What an awesome album. R.I.P. Lou, we miss you out on the Dirty Boulevard.

    QUOTE (GoSox05 @ Oct 23, 2013 -> 10:25 AM) Watched Halloween 3 last night. One of most underrated horror movies of all time. I agree! I stayed up way past my bedtime to watch it yesterday. I want one of those masks bad!

    The Finer Things In Life

    QUOTE (Soxbadger @ Oct 12, 2013 -> 12:09 AM) Went here tonight: http://threedotschicago.com/ Made me think of this thread and Jim. And how was it?!?? I am hoping to make a Chicago trip in the coming year and Three Dots is at the top of my to do list. I hope they get it right as far as the quality of the classic Tiki drinks goes. Love their signature sea urchin ceramic mug.

    beer/food pairings

    Best food match for Duvel: Mussels steamed in garlic, shallots and Belgian ale. Also the best food pairing for guezue lambic. G&T's suggestions of cheeses and salted meats etc., is also excellent. Stouts and porters pair very well with oysters. There's an entire festival in Galway every November that showcases that wonderful pairing. And of course my personal favorite food and beer pairing: Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale and Hershey Special Dark Chocolate.

    Saddened by the passing of a Chicago original and a big part of my childhood. Jerry G. Bishop - Original Svengoolie Dead at 77 "It is with sad news that we report the death of Chicago's original Svengoolie, JERRY G. BISHOP. Jerry was 77 years old. Mr. Bishop, a resident of San Diego, died of a heart attack Sunday, Sept. 15, at the University of California at San Diego Medical Center. . . He will be missed by many fans" SCREAMING YELLOW THEATRE WEBSITE

    i am drunk in 2013

    QUOTE (RockRaines @ Aug 24, 2013 -> 12:59 AM) Finally went to the new bourbon/Pizza place on madison, Old Fifth. VERY good and strong cocktails, however, I HATE putting egg white in drinks. Its f***ing stupid. Lots of classic cocktails call for egg whites, yolks, or both. Pisco Sours, Ramos Gin Fizz, etc., cannot be made properly without egg whites. Flips, Eggnog, Tom and Jerry, etc., all use whole eggs and cannot be authentically made without them. As more people get curious about classic craft cocktails anc traditional early American drinking traditions, it should be expected and hoped that the better craft bars include egg drinks in their classic cocktails program and start experimenting with these traditional ingredients in de novo cocktails as well.

    So little drunk posting from you all this year. Either you have all completely lamed out or you have gotten smarter about drunk posting in a public forum. Smart money says you just all suck this year. Drink and share, dammit!

    (Insert Celeb Here) is Dead

    On the subject of the recently deceased, I was surprised that BigEd missed a big loss in the music world last week as he is usually very quick to post the passing of classic musicians. Genre-bending jazz pioneer George Duke died last week at age 67 from leukemia. He was the keyboardist for my all-time favorite Mothers of Invention lineup and he was a big reason I branched out from rock and started becoming more diverse in my musical tastes and listening to jazz and funk and fusion as a kid.

    QUOTE (BigEdWalsh @ Aug 13, 2013 -> 10:52 AM) Karen Black, 74. Best known for Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces, The Great Gatsby, Trilogy of Terror, Burnt Offerings and Nashville. A great character actress. The Trilogy of Terror horror anthology will be forever what I associate Karen Black with. That Zuni Devil Doll scared the $hit out of me when I was a kid and it was a big part of my formative childhood years as a lifelong fan of monster movies.
