Well put. i saw some Johnny Walker in the LCBO with the expensive stuff. i didn't realize their blue label is $200! it must be that expensive becuase it's hard to get a blend the same every time. when are we doing this? i'm salivating...
in related news, in the same LCBO i happened on a bottle of canadian rye, it was a single malt and it sold for less than the cheap blended scotch. i was truly intrigued, i should have bought it, i forgot the name (no it's not wisers, it was an independant producer).

It's listed in the bikeweek guide. I think there's just going to be some booths around the grassy area near the bandshell plus a bbq and I assume bands playing. Just somewhere to chillax for the evening. Beats sitting around at home.

Johnny Walker Blue blows 90% of single malts out of the water any day of the week.

That is all.

I don't think you'll need to lock up. If necessary we can just keep an eye on each other's rides. I think eyefloater is going to swing by when he's done at 7:00 as well. I'll likely show up between 7:00 and 7:30 as well. My friend cuts my hair (she runs her "studio" in her apartment) so we usually wind up socializing and listening to music and stuff so it takes a while (appt is at 5:30).

Depends on what you like from your whiskey. I am sure Blue is a fine whiskey.....I far prefer the uniqueness of single malts over blends. It's like Creemore vs Guiness....both good beers but the Guiness is far more unique.

Cavernmech's just fear mongering because he wants everyone else to use that ****ed up cable lock he always has wrapped around his waist. [serious note]I REALLY hope we don't have to go through another Kryptonite recall debacle.[/serious note]

I like the utilitarian look of the monster chain but I'd sure hate to carry it around.

seriously...it must be quite intimidating uncoiling that chain in front of offending motorist. I picked up the furget-about-it at Cycle Therapy, crazy heavy
Jeremy, what kinda of cheffing you specialize in? All the chefs I know all are wonderfully competent all around but they all have a zest or passion for something in particular.

It would start raining just as I start to go for a little cruise at lunch, wouldn't it? Of course, I was going to grab lunch someplace and as I was riding down Augusta I decided it would be nice to sit in the "window" (ie. opening) at Big Fat Burrito and read a book "outside" while sheltered from the rain. It was lurvly! And the rain died down enough after an hour that I barely got wet getting back to the office. Oh, and the burrito was decent also (first time there).
