(The New York Times)   Good news, everybody. It's no longer necessary for you to feel like an uneducated, heathenish boor if you want to sip some red wine after Labor Day. You can drink Guinness in your shorts, too, and can stop feeling ashamed   (nytimes.com) divider line 80

Hobo Jr.: LincolnLogolas: AverageAmericanGuy: LincolnLogolas: Great, now I'll have to find something else to make me look like an uneducated, heathenish boor. What if I drank red wine while shuffling around the supermarket with my pants around my ankles, muttering about the unfortunate quality of the frozen peas in the store? Does that work?

Have you considered buying a case of domestic beer?

No, I live in Orange County, CA. I would wind up looking like a heathen, boorish hipster.

One word: CheezWhiz


I don't get it. I love Cheez Whiz.

mikaloyd: So its ok to wear socks with sandals now?


Depends... Are you an Arab shopkeeper living in southern CA? If so, it's ALWAYS the season for socks and sandals.

I refuse to drink Guinness without my top hat and monocle!

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: I refuse to drink Guinness without my top hat and monocle!


I can sort of understand how one could choke down a monocle, but how on Earth does one drink a top hat?
 
2012-05-22 04:15:23 AM
That is the most pretentious thing I've read in a long time. It's bad even by the New York Times standards.

Rich people get their sweat glands lasered shut so they don't need to wear shorts to keep from getting sweaty.

Seriously? Did I miss something, or has no one noticed that summer is after MEMORIAL DAY, not Labor Day?
 
2012-05-22 06:44:27 AM
'Aside from the holiday's ceremonial importance - honoring the men and women who have died serving in the armed forces - the weekend means one thing to most: the unofficial start of summer. As with fashion and food, drinking assumes a more casual, easygoing tone.'


This is where I stopped reading.
Seriously, show some respect.

What the he'll is with that beer list? I don't know enough about wine to know when someone making recommendations is sounding pretentious but i know a beer snob when I hear them.

You know what goes great on a summer day? Probably all those beers and Guinness. And Rolling Rock, or corona with lime, or about 9 bud lights.

All that pretentious bullshiat about being so self-important as to bend The Rules of Seasonal Drinking (self imposed by high brow wankers), yet they couldn't scare up a few ripe strawberries to make their ridiculous fussy punch.
 
2012-05-22 07:36:35 AM
Wait, the article doesn't say if I should have red wine or Guinness with breakfast.

Sgygus: Summer's New Rules

Hahahahaha

No seriously, hahahahahaha.


Indeed.

F*ck the rules. I'll wear white after labor day, too.

Eric Asimov is a nice man but I cannot bear to read more than a few lines of his writing before I feel all punchy inside me.

I've drunk enough good wine (this morning) and am married to a fit enough woman to be able to comfortably say this: Kalimotxo is an absolute delight to drink when the weather gets hot. Yes, a 50/50 mix of cheap red wine and Coca Cola.

Right... stouts are bad in warm weather. That's why you find Dragon Stout in Jamaica. And red wine is bad for summer, which is why a nice pitcher of sangria on the rocks is never, ever served. And when camping, no one ever passes around a bottle of bourbon to take pulls while smoking a cigar around the fire. Just too dang gauche.

Oafish behavior that would be unwelcome at an upper west side box social or while summering for the month in the Hamptons.

I prefer drinking it in a glass, actually, as it's not nearly as messy.......
 
2012-05-22 08:22:31 AM
I'm as beer snobby as the rest of 'em (so much so that this weekend I'm planning on cracking open a Dark Lord...), but you know what kind of beer goes best on a hot summer day?

A cold one. Any cold one. After working outside in 100 degree heat sweating like a pig, just give me whatever the coldest beer in the area is. I don't care if it's Bud Light or some other nasty-ass piss beer. It's beer, and it's cold, and give me now please.

If that makes me look like an uneducated heathenish boor, so be it. At least I'll be a happy one.

Bacontastesgood: Geez, people, lighten up. The writer is saying that people who judge you based on the color of your drink are being dumb, because the flavor doesn't necessarily follow. the 'rules' hes talking about aren't for fashion, it's because GENERALLY certain stuff goes better in summer versus winter. A hot summer day on the patio and a nice chardonnay or light ale goes down nice with some light fare and fruit. Sure you could wash down a steak burrito with a porter and have some fries covered in gravy, but for most people you'd feel like a bowling ball was in your stomach the rest of the day.


Article: Hey guys, a big holiday weekend is coming up! If the weather is hot, why don't you try some of these drinks? They're refreshing! As a journalist, I'm writing an article to share ideas with you that you might not know about, because nobody is perfect!

Fark's reaction: STFU DIAF stupid Manhattan jerk! I put cheesy fries in my bourbon milk shakes all year round, and I like it!

Lighten up indeed. It's an opinion piece in the Dining and Wine section of the NYT, not a farking government edict. The Too Hot to Hooch punch actually looks pretty tasty.

So what beer goes best with a ketchup drenched hot dog?
 
2012-05-22 10:32:51 PM
Ok subby, but I don't feel ashamed drinking guinness in my shorts....I feel lonely.

/sigh
//maybe if I drink enough I can hallucinate a drinking buddy
///if i drink online I'm not drinking alone right?
////if not I have a cat on my lap, that counts right?
\\\oh god

coldones: So what beer goes best with a ketchup drenched hot dog?


IMHO either a big hoppy ale, or if it's really hot out then a heffeweizen (preferably Bell's Oberon).
