What are you drinking?

Because during the Super Bowl I drank 5 St Pauli Girl beers and a shot and felt nothing I quit drinking. Today I saw there is St Pauli NA as in no alcohol. In my haste to get to the party I must have grabbed NA by mistake. So today I drank a bunch of wine. Of course it was before I started drinking today that I cut the hell out of my thumb.

I ordered that at a restaurant once and drank about half of it before I figured out what the NA meant. I've always loved St Pauli (better than Beck)and it seems recently to have made some inroads of acceptance.

Two scotch & Heinekens tonight. Rarely have it (glen livet) but it sure tasted swell. Relaxing unlike my usual inspiring vodka.

I've never been a whisky drinker. But tonight I have bought a bottle of Aberlour 10 yr single malt. Drinking it neat on the rocks. And it's not bad. Kronenbourg on the side.

Sounds Good, HS. I am drinking Almaden wine, from Cali.. On sale $7.00 a gallon,and it shows. I have a case of Bud waiting in the wings, but I'm not much looking forward to that either. Times are tough. CRB:)

Scotch is my favorite to chase with good beer. I have no scotch so tonight it with be White Russians.
I have no kahlua so no Black Russians for me (don't like milk much-good with brandy, though). That's why it was some old scotch I had last night.

I agree that beer goes great with scotch but for some reason I always drink beer with black russians-I'm weird that way.

I'll take a black or white Russian anyday- I don't worry, the Cold War is over.:DCRB

art openings fed me the usual forthputting. Red wine saved the day, I dispersed them all with a piano piece. Cell phones became the bane of human existence. BYE

Just finished a bottle of two buck chuck and I'm wondering (like I knew i would be) why I didn't purchase the second bottle. Now the question ... to run to the liquor store or not to run to the liquor store? I don't have enough in the wallet, but, I have some in my earthquake fund .... hmmm, stay tuned.

I only drank alcohol twice in my whole life. The third time won't be in that night : I am quenching my thirst with glasses of very tasty lemonade.

I drink lemonade for breakfast or with vodka. Last night 3 white Russians ( they were tan when stirred) I got ript playing Scrabble with my wife and mother in law. Today I made dinner and am drinking Douglas Hill Cabernet . It is the same people who make Charles Shaw $2.00 WINE. I feel just fine as wine.

Seduced by the "neighborhood slut" of cheap Puerto Rican rum and Diet Coke.

Thanks to an economy that demands 2, or ideally, 3 drinking sessions per twelve dollars( give or take a bar tab or two).

Palo Viejo is the name
and rum-fueled blood sugar spikes is the game
and the odds of me triggering a latent genetic
Demon of Diabetes Curse are low

since I'm nowhere near the ice cream.

or so I'm told...

Tonight I only drink if my wife drinks. It is cold rainy and she has the next couple of days off. I think I better find a recipe for a warm alcoholic beverage. That's what I'll drink.

You know, this is the Bukowski board and to have more replies for dinner than drinking is a mortal sin-so keep eating but don't forget about this one.

Gonna start with that big ol' Fosters can tonight (and that may be it).
 
black coffee , strong.

and speaking of strong i'd like to drink alfa strong as well ( 9.2% beer in a 0.5 ltr can) top that off with a few normal alfa's and i'm a happy man .

4 pack of Grolsch. Then the last (for now) of the Aberlour. Recommended by my dolphin doctor - you know - he's a medicinal porpoise.

"The Spirit of Georgia", manufactured in Germany with blood orange and prickly pear, so called traditional refreshment, is it? :cool:

I've read the three novels, yes. I thought they were great. I got into him because of his father and I got into his father's stuff through Bukowski.

Bruno;
Try reading the play "Don Giovanni" by Dan Fante. I'm not into plays as a rule, but thought that this was a great one...

Nice one. I've actually looked into buying that before so, with your advice in mind, I'll make sure I check it out. A bit like Buk, I've read all the novels too quickly.

Anyone evr try to calculate how many beers they've drank in their life? Me, I figure to have averaged 3 or 4 per night (some nights 8 some nights zero, some nights twelve, followed by two zeros, etc) for 27 years...so its just about math. Whew, it can be alarming.

44,200.

I didn't make that number up, and I think I'm being conservative on that figure.

It's not a tragedy, I have my whole life ahead of me to improve my score.

I prefer by far that :
