Talk about thread drift! I post a couple of lines in the "how did you break your Glencairn" that pertained to the topic of Glencairns and I got a warning!
If it gets any wackier, it can be moved to off topic.
Anyhow, what you got wasn't a warning...you will know if/when that happens. What you got was a courtesy reminder from a moderator.
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?
Agreed on the Atlanta episode, it was a B- effort, but I'm guessing most locals probably feel that way when he visits their city.
I don't have a problem with Bourdain at all, in fact I usually enjoy the show when I manage to catch it. I just don't watch much TV. He reminds me of a lot of New Yorkers I have known over the years as far as attitude and swager. Maybe it's a Miami thing and when I grew up in Miami it was like a distant southern suburb of New York.
What I enjoy is his appreciation and enthusiasm for street food, simple fare and strong drink. He gets snarky when average food is served pretentiously.
It wasn't Anthony Bourdain, but Zane Lamprey from Three Sheets, that first introduced me to PVW. it was the episode where he went to Kentucky and told all about bourbon that I first even heard of PVW. It was what made me go out and buy a bottle with my first bonus check from my new job 5 yrs ago. (BTW, I paid $75 for a bottle of 23yr Family Reserve, which is NOW pricing out at $495...)
I remember Pappy prices when they were much less than $75.00. I just hope the media foodies don't decide BIBs are the new best thing.
That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
