We used to, but sold almost all of them out end of season. We can still order them if you know what you want. Try dukes? I know they suck, but they have a good selection (I think).

ditto on the limbo time. I'm away the week before xmas and not returning here until late in the evening on xmas day, but I'm then off until the 4th, so I'm good to go that whole week.

Also: I'm willing to be the host for a scotch party if we aren't going to go out to a bar.
