I'm not worthy!

Arrogant Bastard, for those who don't know, is a wonderful beer. Many of my friends and I agree on this issue. (If you're not a beer drinker, you won't like it.) Anyway, I have turned their logo into my icon for this entry. And their motto, appropriately, is "You're Not Worthy."

Today, rosepurr decided to walk around an area of town we weren't very familiar with, full of cute boutiques and working-class houses. We needed the walk, the time together, the excuse to get out of the house on a chilly day. We discovered a wine tasting sponsored by a wine store but held in the formaggeria behind it. Since they do that, cheese is available for tasting as well. Today's tasting was syrah and shiraz. Yum. We liked some of the more expensive wines, of course.

Anyway, after the tasting, we explored the store and stocked up. They didn't carry much beer, but they had Arrogant Bastard. And OAKED Arrogant Bastard. That is, Arrogant Bastard aged with oak chips. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's bigger and bolder and, indeed, I'm not worthy. :) I also found Jefferson's Reserve, a bourbon barrel stout from the Bluegrass Brewing Company. I'm enjoying one as I write this.

I believe we have found our new local wine store. We spent a lot of time talking to one of the staff there (Geoff, who you see on the home page holding the glass - nice guy). He made great recommendations and we restocked our supply. w00t!

We found some great consignment shops as well. We drove a bit and found Grimey's, a music store I'd heard lots about but still hadn't managed to make it to. Needless to say, we both dropped some money there. I bought the latest Hold Steady (we saw them open for the Drive-By Truckers on Halloween; a fun party band), Los Straitjackets' Christmas album (the perfect soundtrack for a drunken Xmas party), Hayes Carll (you can hear and see the video for "She Left Me for Jesus" on the website) and a used Dave Alvin I didn't yet have. Yes, I'm the last guy still buying CD's. Perhaps the RIAA will bail me out. :)

I'm not worthy of this whole day. I've enjoyed quality beer, wine and cheese. I've bought more music. I had the best company a man could ask for. I came home to a fabulous dinner of pork, brussels sprouts and taters that was fantastic.

I couldn't possibly ask for more. Well, I could, but that would just be greedy.
