    A word of caution though, if you wish to journey in a dignified manner stay away from that bunch that hang around a certain gathering spot in Tallahassee. They're hard core Bourbon Geeks who travel the fast lane, Hell, they even drive up to the Motherland to pick out their own barrels.
    HA! I just took a job in Tallahassee 6 months ago. Thanks for the advice.

    LSAT LSHMAT. Who cares about that when you are the 2013 Bourbonian Of The Year? And I know a bunch of lawyers that wish the LSAT had done them the favor it did you.

    That Tallahassee group Squire alludes to gets together nearly every Wed. evening at The Lounge cigar porch next to Market Square Liquors. Sometimes we have some interesting Bourbon to drink. :-)

    The Tallahassee Whiskey Society meets the first Wed. of every month at the same location and we all do the same tasting flight so we have a common starting point of discussion for the evening.

    Sounds like fun. Believe it or not, though, I go to church choir practice with my wife every Wednesday evening.

    And - so far - no bourbon drinking whatsoever has occurred before, during, or directly after choir practice.

    Except maybe when I get home.

    I will definitely check out Market Square Liquors, though.

    P.S. WOW - and I do mean WOW. I just looked up Market Square Liquors in Tallahassee and found the USAToday article on the place. WOW (again). I cannot wait to check it out. All of those Bourbons and people that love it and hand select it and me a noob Bourbon drinker just arrived in Tallahassee.

    It's fate. It must be.

    P.S.S. Is the main store the one on Monroe? Thanks.

    So you're from the Pacific Northwest and are an LSU fan. There has to be a story there, somewhere. A sad, sad story.
