    I passed up both PVW 20 and 23. I regret it now and am considering driving the hundred or so miles to get them.

    I passed on a 1.75 of EC 12 at the glorious sale price of 31 bucks.
    My name is Joel Goodson. I deal in human fulfillment.
    I grossed over eight thousand dollars in one night. Time of your life, huh kid?

    Re: What Did You Have to Pass Up Today?

    Well, I didn't HAVE to pass them up (what am I saying -- sure I did, I didn't have that kind of money?!) but I left on a shelf last week some $199 Parker's 27yo (is that the correct age?), several '08 William Larue Wellers, a line to the back of the shelf of the most recent Four Roses Mariage, Pogue, some '08 Sazerac 18yo, Pappy 15, Highland Park 18 and 25 yos SMSWs, and even a few Wild Turkey Russell's Reserve 10/101s (ya know -- I might just have to go back for those).
    Don't bother PM'ing me -- I won't go back for them unless I really want them. I just don't seem to care who (other than me, I mean) winds up with stuff. Stuff happens, ya know?..
    (By the way, I was looking for reasonably-priced A.H. Hirsch 16yo, which I'd seen before in these stores, but not anymore...)

    As a side note, I was told that NY prices were really high and that I would have a hard time there, but I have to VEHEMENTLY disagree! Mass & CT prices are much more inflated and ridiculous, which is why I had such a hard time shopping in NY.

    I left a lot of things I wanted and picked up a bunch of cheapo stuff that I can't find up my way instead -- I left: Johhny Drum 86, Weller 12 (in a handle -- my cousin just brought me 2 750s up from Boston and one of the 750s cost the same as a handle in NY -- grrrr!), of the KBD small batch I picked Noah's Mill over Vintage, Rye & Rowan's Creek, I left Corner Creek, 4R Yellow label (which I can get in MA), Old Fitz Prime (opted for an 1849), a dark top, embossed turkey WTKS (for $50 in CT, forget it!), and most painfully a WT American Spirit - - I have been wanting one very badly, but just couldn't pull the trigger at $90 - - maybe next time...this store is right near my family's house in NY so I'll know where to find it . . . I'll probably be dreaming about that American Spirit, hopefully the BTAC & Noah's Mill I scored will help me forget.

    I passed up the opportunity to go shopping for whiskey. I had to sit around and wait for the Satellite TV repair guy for hours.
