Laying in Supplies.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 6:49 pm

Yesterday, in anticipation of the snow storm that was predicted for today (the weather peeps were right about that) and for tomorrow (looks like they might be right about that too), I made a trip to lay in some essential supplies. No, I did not go to the supermarket for bread, milk and eggs (had ‘em already). Instead, following the lead of my pal, Mr. Bingley, I went to the Mondo Liquor and Wine Emporium where I picked up some items that are essential to waiting out the storm:

A bit more than a case of wine (a mix of cabernets, merlots and some pino grigio)

A bottle of Bulleit Bourbon (a most excellent libation)

A bottle of Old Forester Bourbon (never tried this one before)

A bottle of Firefly Peach Sweet Tea Vodka

A bottle of Firefly Mint Sweet Tea Vodka; and

A bottle of Red Stag*** (cherry-infused bourbon)

I love to shop at the Mondo Liquor and Wine Emporium.

I’m ready for the farookin’ storm, for shit sure.

*** Props to Leslie for suggesting that I try Red Stag. I tried it the minute I returned from the Mondo Liquor and Wine Emporium, and my conclusion is that it is dangerously delicious.


  1. You know I’ll be in NYC for BlogHer on August 6 & 7, right? I might be persuaded to tack on a day or two at one end or the other so that we can get together and sample a little of that there Bourbon whiskey…

    I know it’s not that far from the bright lights to the Parkway…

  3. Adie and I went food shopping and when we returned I was just thinking if we had enough orange vodka to last out the storm…..I think we’ll be OK.

  4. And Jimbo, as an added bonus attraction, you won’t have to worry about literally freezing if/when you go outside! Not with all that antifreeze in you, anyway…

  7. If you like the cherry bourbon, have you tried Leopold brothers apple whiskey? http://www.leopoldbros.com/Apple_Whiskey.html What a treat for desert.
    Don’t know if it’s available back east yet, but a libation out here in Denver is worth your attention whenever you might see it. Stranahan’s(http://www.stranahans.com/) will spoil you for sippin’ whiskey.

  8. @Mark —


    Both have been placed on my shopping list. Around these parts, when it comes to apple, we enjoy Laird’s Apple Jack, made in New Jersey since 1780.

  9. If such storm develops, wait till the snow piles up nicely. Then take a paper cup and fill it to overflowing with the new fallen white stuff. Sprinkle it liberally with the cherry bourbon and you have yourself a cherry bourbon snow cone.
    Why should the kiddies have all the fun…..
