Off Topic

Just because it is called a craft cocktail doesn't mean the drink is automatically good or that I should pay double or triple for it because you were stupid enough to hire some person who convinced you that people will be willing to pay $30 for a drink if it is created by a mixologist rather than a bartender.

Anyone buying Enty's tweet about Kerr and DiCaprio getting ready to roll out their relationship in time for awards season?

Seven of Eleven said...

Hump day, that is, but I suppose the original works...

I would pay $30 for a drink if it was a full handle of Tito's Vodka, Patron Silver or 12 YO Scotch.

MISCH said...

it's a gimmick

Renoblondee said...

@Kristin I'd believe that one.

Kristin said...

It's not just wishful thinking on her part? I mean, it would basically confirm the rumors of her cheating.

bellaluna said...

I'll stick with Silver Patron (cold & neat) or vodka neat, thank you.

I've never met a drink worth $30!

(I quit drinking 5 months ago and haven't touched a drop since.)

And has anyone seen Dallas Buyers Club yet? I want to see that so bad! Is it as great as I'm hoping it will be?

Kristin said...

@Sugar I saw it and its great. Depressing as shit but really good.

Did anyone watch New Girl last night? I about died! Damn, that show is funny. "It's a flip phone Jess. She's either poor or a visitor from the past." Hehehe

Renoblondee said...

Sorry, I meant "She's either poor or a time traveler."

I saw a sign in Vegas for "craft beer" and I thought it was a typo for draft beer.

Stick with whatever's on tap, Enty. Much cheaper and equally effective.

Who watched Sons of Anarchy last night? I was spoiled about Jax killing Clay, but I'm still shaking over it. TV rarely has made me cry, but that scene hit hard. I had to stop watching, and have been carrying around that emotion all day. A total wow moment, and deserving of several Emmys.

Sherry said...

Well no bother watching it on my DVR NOW, Seachica. Thanks!

Just kidding. I haven't watched SOA.

No drink is worth $30 IMHO. However I do appreciate a good craft beer and yes it is a real thing. They are designated by output of the brewery. Craft, microbrew and another name for the big guys like Coors, Bud, etc.

Seven of Eleven said...

Very OT but I can't stop laughing - I just got a groupon email for a John Mayer concert!

A live concert is the only place where you can demand that your favorite singer play your favorite song while staring directly into your eyes. Make the moment last forever with this GrouponLive deal.

HAHAHA!

Anna Katherine Nonymous said...

Agree with Sherry that no single drink is worth 30 bucks! Give me a break. Ri-dick-ulous. Now 30 for a bottle, I'd pay.

Zeeky_Boogy_Doog said...

Sounds like something Anne Hathaway would create if she were a bartender instead of an actor.

KellyLynn said...

Yeah, it does sound like a Goopy kind of drink.

I give the side-eye to anything product promoted as "artisan" or "craft". What were once words to describe small-scale quality artist creations are now advertising buzzwords to fool wannabe hipsters into paying extra money for mass-produced schlock.

Great products (and the fans they create) say more than some marketing blurb can about an artist.

I had the best microbrewed beer the other month, it was Laughing Squirrel from Ontario. It was so good that I forgot I have less than no tolerance for alcohol and sucked it right back. I then had to go up to the hotel room and lay down. That's how good Laughing Squirrel beer is: knocks you right on your mommy keister.
