'cuse he's got a good sigline lately:
Remember this motto to live by: Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather one should aim to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, glass of Scotch in the other, your body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO! Man, what a ride!" I've heard this before, but today it has finaly taken hold of me in a way that brain meds just don't. I'll be hitting the scotch & chocolate pretty hard tonight.

Thanks, man.

Damn, no problem. :D
If you have not tried it, may I suggest a bottle of Glenmorangie Port Wood (http://www.bevmo.com/productinfo.asp?sku=00000011315&Dn=166+168&Nr=Store%3A99&Ntt=Glenmorangie+scotch&N=168+0&Nty=1&D=Glenmorangie+scotch&Ntx=mode+matchallpartial&Ntk=All) to go with the chocolate?

We may have to have a SDMB scotch tasting somewhere one of these days. Maybe as part of Vegas dope '07 (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=409791&page=1&pp=50)

Seconded!


BYOB would be cheaper. Which ones (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=388071&highlight=scotch+silenus) do you want me to bring? :D

So... would anybody be up for a chocolate tasting, then?

Anybody? Bueller?

Then plan on showing up in Vegas in August. We're happy to share!

I'm thinking of bringing the McDuff 27 and the Glen Livet 22.

Hmm...the two people who have eagerly volunteered to "man the BBQ grill" at LasVegasDopefest07 are the same two people planning the 1st Annual Las Vegas Scotch Tasting...

All those who predict disaster, raise your hands....

Dmark Did you really think you were going to get me in a French maid's outfit sober? :D
Actually it's Gin and Tonic when in the sun running the grill. I thought everybody knew that.
The scotch comes later.

I will of course bring the Port Wood Glenmorangie, and I think I may have a bottle of Blue around somewhere.

We're gonna have scotch-basted hot dogs, scotch-basted hamburgers, scotch-basted corn, scotch-basted and it fell on the ground but nobody saw so back on the grill it goes dogs, and..........
