    I just got started drinking Bourbon again. It's been about 20 years of drinking Vodka or beer. I have a good friend from Switzerland that was interested in Bourbon, and asked for a suggestion. I bought a bottle of Maker's Mark and he became hooked. The more he talked about it the more I wanted to try it again, and now I'm hooked.

    I just bought a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 20 yr old for the next time my buddy from Switzerland comes to town. I'll hang around here some and soak up the info. Thanks in advance for the welcome.

    Welcome Brandon. Pretty new myself. Have not made it to Pappy yet. VOB and OGD are on the table now. From reading I think PVW and MM are next.

    Hearty welcome to both of you fella's. Don't be afraid to give any Straight Bourbon or Rye a try. I have found many brands are worthy of our respect regardless of price or age. Enjoy your adventures in the wide world of bourbon.

    Hey Brandon... I'm not far from you at all. I'm in Horn Lake. Do yourself a HUGE favor and start trying other bourbons as well. There's a lot of tasty stuff out there.

    Hey oldtimer. Anybody that remebers the Antenna is considered an oldtimer. I have gotten in a little trouble there myself. There were some great bands and strange people at that place. Thanks for the welcome.

    There's a story somewhere that involves me swearing off tequila for the rest of my life, the antenna club, and club 616.

    ...bad bad BAD night. Luckily no one was arrested though.

    yep, when i talk to my little brother about the skateboards we used to have, he says 'old skool' and i say, yeahyeah........

    anyways, i assume that place is long gone! saw the Descendents, MDC, Glorious Din there...yep, i know, very well known bands....

    well, off for another pour of your state's nice contribution to the whiskey arsenal: Gentleman Jack (mellow but different!)...and to listen to some more oldtimer PUNK !
    HUP!
