My sister got me a bottle the xmas before last. It was good, I thought, but not memorable enough for me to characterize it after the fact. Very smooth, but probably not worth the price tag to me if I were shopping for myself. Cool bottle though.

I think Ketel One still tops my list. I'll always be fond of Stoli, perhaps partly because I practically swam in the stuff during a trip to Russia years back. Grey Goose? Meh. Marketing coup, that one, is all I can figure.

Sorry, but I have to ask. Is this a confession?

Wow, really? I've been three times now and I think its terrible (for what it is). Their meat just isnt good.

And their wine prices are laughable.

Actually ended up going twice, had the little filet both times and thought it was great, but hey I'm easy to please. On the second trip my GF asked for a wine recommendation and they named a $60 bottle. I know she was thinking more like $40, but we were paying and not wanting to look cheap she agreed. They returned with 2 bottles, pleading confusion and tried to upsell us to an $80 bottle.

We probably will never be back for this reason.

Seeing as how most of us are probably trapped at home today, I expect plenty of action on here, maybe some new forons, perhaps a couple of bannings..

I have plenty of booze, so I see no reason why I shouldn't go and get myself banned today.

Not random, but I'm putting it here so as not to be unhelpful.

Rightly or wrongly, all I can think of in response to the Unschooling thread is: Is he still on the boob?

I'm posting on the Forum today. At least I can say I've done something.

Concerning the Naked Girls Reading performance:

I can appreciate anything that gets people exposed to literature (no pun) but I'll bet dollars to donuts that there will be a handful of creepy guys there, drinking diet cokes and trying to sneak pictures with their phones. Is it worth it?
