Have you tried Cisco? It's quite inexpensive.

You're not drinking the right wine. Two bottles of Bordeaux and I get that nice, philosophical, classy drunk feeling.

It takes me a little while to get going with vodka, beer or whiskey, but wine almost immediately gets the buzz going. It's weird.

That's what I mean but real drunk connoisseurs drink wine. Maybe you should find out why. It will cost less than that rum you buy.

Rum makes me angry; Whiskey makes me stoic; Bourbon makes me deep; wine makes me philosophical; beer makes me loud; champagne makes me silly; Jager makes me puke.

I have never understood people where certain types of alcohol makes them exhibit different very specific behaviors. The effect of alcohol is the effect of alcohol, no matter the type. Some just make it happen faster and taste different. All alcohol does for me besides the obvious is enhance the mood I'm in. If I'm happy, I get happier, if I'm pissed, I get angrier, etc.

I've never met a Serious oenophile who wasn't a drunk though not necessarily a falling down and vomiting drunk.

Sure their excuse is exercising their discriminating palates but most I've known drink around 2 bottles a day.

Sonoma's for snobs. That's why I've been attending the farking Catalina Wine Mixer since 97.

Good ol' Boone's Farm. Alcohol of choice for people who don't like the taste of alcohol.

As long as they don't mix red wine with cola. Because that's goddamn blasphemy.

My company gave a colleague of mine a $200 bottle of wine for Christmas. Now... she definitely deserved it, but it left me wondering where the Franzia for everyone else was.

It's actually kinda funny how they go to California, to Sonoma, when Arizona also has a bit of wine country (then again, California has beaches, and we all love nice hot beaches).

But, on the upside on Arizona, James Keenan produces and sells wine (new window).

We once did a hobo wine tasting in college.

Mad Dog 20-20's Bling Bling Blue Raspberry was the hands-down favorite. And by favorite, I mean it was the most commonly shattered bottle

Who's that barbarian the does this!? Wait... They do that in Spain, as I recall. I think they call it kalimotxo.

Got blasted on that back in the 60s (or was it the70s?)
I think it was aged for at least a week.

Didn't Boone's Farm make one called Tickle Pink years ago? 1980ish?

My first trip to CA wine country was to Healdsburg last year. We rented bikes and rode up Dry Creek Road. I think it's harder to get hammered when half your time is spent pedaling.

We had a great time and really liked Everett Ridge for wine and Davero for olive oil.

/and of course Bear Republic

Girlfriend worked at Papa's Steakhouse for a year as a sommelier and now shes a wine snob. I get biatched at when she asked me how that particular wine tasted and I reply "Alcohol".

I have had some tasty wines but for all the difference I can tell between them, you might as well give me a box with a tap.
 
2012-03-22 12:03:57 AM
they witnessed participants stagger from one tasting room to another, hanging on benches and even getting sick from too much alcohol

SPRING BREAK, WOOOOOO!

My theory is the sulfites make your face flush, which kinda mimics the later stages of being drunk. Just a theory, though.

Next think you know, we'll have people drinking coffee to stay awake instead of for the taste.

getting into a super snooty high-end wine tasting and getting falling down drunk and causing a major scene is on my bucket list.

This was my thought as well. I have known some people that take wine very seriously, and all of them went to bed drunk more often than not.

Came for the Keenan wine maker story. No one mentioned wine snob spit?

Something tells me "serious oenophiles" don't flock to this event. Townies who are biatching need to wise up and rake in some cash.

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat : You're not drinking the right wine. Two bottles of Bordeaux

Eww, I don't think my stomach is even large enough to hold two bottles of any liquid, plus dinner.

Seven shots of southern comfort and god damn, this cat is so soft and fluffy.

/the 100 proof version please

/we had a falling out a few years back, he got voted off of the island, now I hang with with Captain Morgan, Senior Jose Cuervo and Mr. Sambuca.

just wanted to say that today's Fark food-related headlines have led me to making a most unhealthy, but supremely delicous, meal.

Boxed red wine, alongside bacon (Daily's pepper-crusted, if you must know) and tortillas fried in the bacon grease.

Just finished it. Think I'll go enjoy the afterglow.
