Last night, I attended Southern California Whiskey Club's pre-1964 Whisk(e)y Tasting at Seven Grand. I took a lot of photos because, seriously, when is this ever going to happen again?
I sort of have my hands full today, so I'll let the pics do most of the talking.
|Chris, the host with the most.|
|Michael R., also the host with the most. Also loving life.|
|So much potential...|

Later this week, I'll talk about each of these six. In the meantime, I will leave you to ponder the Old Forester bottle. Could it double as a lava lamp? A sex toy? Or a rocket?
Or a lava rocket sex toy?
