Déjà vu Friday

I love the weekend. The possibilities. The realities. The adventures!

Friday night I found myself in a liquor store while on a date – he is also a beer nut, but not quite as fanatical as me … we’re working on this. ;-) It was fun and a really cute way to spend time together. I am trying to learn what he likes and what he doesn’t like so we can explore new beers together – okay enough gushing. Well, as we were walking to the beer section of the store, I did a double take. I couldn’t believe what I saw! I had all but forgotten about this item and that I’ve tried it.

Pumpkin beer!

Oh this is my favorite time of  year for beer (okay, maybe I say that every season when new beers come out). But I do love pumpkin beers. I picked up a few this weekend at three of my favorite beer stores along with some others I’ve been hunting for. Who goes to three shops to find good beer? This girl does.

Preparing for Greece – Opa! Ouzo!

In early anticipation and preparation for my trip to Greece and Turkey with Lino Rulli and The Catholic Guy Show on The Catholic Channel – Sirius 159 / XM 117, I have been doing a lot of research about what my amazing travel buddies and I can expect to drink while in Greece. As the Catholic Drinkie, I believe it is my duty to lay the groundwork for our outings. We don’t depart until April 29, 2011, but it’s never too early to start educating ourselves. Besides, I am so excited about it that I gotta do something to occupy my mind!

Vodka, Tacos & St. Francis of Assisi?

 

October 4 – a day which celebrates many things!

Thanks to my loyal Twitter pals for informing me that today is not only National Taco Day (nom nom nom) but National Vodka Day! I am not sure how I missed this wonderful news, but it made it to me so all is good now. :-)

I did know, however, that today is the feast day for St. Francis of Assisi. One of my favorite quotes from him is: “I have been all things unholy. If God can work through me, he can work through anyone.” I don’t know about you, but that really describes my life in a pretty amazing way! God is awesome in how He works in our lives. I am truly blessed.

Essential liquors and mixes

I’ve had a couple friends move recently and they have asked me to compile a list of essential items to have in a liquor closet. I would love your input to make a “stock the bar checklist” for all the fellow Drinkies out there!
