I just reread the last post and realized that it comes off as somewhat grumpy. This is something that I have been thinking about for some time, and to be honest, it surprised me that I still felt as strongly as I do about this after so much time passing. Please forgive the grumpy tone of my writing. This was related to a specific incident that I found myself in in the last month. I just don't appreciate being either put on the spot for a job when someone has never paid their dues and I don't think they could ever hack it professionally nor do I appreciate them trying to make my friend and fellow bartender look bad so they can show off. Thats just classless, sorry.
If we've hung out in the last 2 weeks, you can rest assured that this isn't you.
I'm off to Sel Gris for Raena's birthday tonight and then we'll catch a play. I may hit the TearDrop post theatre, but we'll have to see. Part of me just wants to enjoy this glorious Portland weather while I can today.
I just tasted the Springbank 15 that the TearDrop brought in. Amazing stuff.
On a final note, and speaking of amazing, Jaymie was kind enough to provide me with a bottle of Stranahan's yesterday. I'm in heaven again! Of course, I have to make this stuff last, but I think I can make it through the summer at least. Hopefully, I can talk Kevin at Beaker and Flask into carrying it. I'll sell this hell out of it. Now who is going to make an Oregon whiskey thats actually made in Oregon?
