    Cocktail of Choice?

    Thanks, I thought Old Fashioneds had Vermouth as well. I had one this past Saturday while at dinner prior to the Diamondbacks game; they are tasty but a bit sweet for my taste. mmm''s math about 8 ounces didn't add up, which is part of why I asked.

    Dunkin Donuts....GFY to the 'Woke' people.

    I find the food OK but agree on service. Same with In-n-Out service, but I like the burgers better.

    Yep. Vodka is measured by its purity, which is to say its lack of taste. That's why Smirnoff won. https://www.nytimes.com/2005/01/26/dining/a-humble-old-label-ices-its-rivals.html I'll give gin (my boss likes Hendricks) and tequila a pass for higher end because there is an actual taste component, but it is more about how you feel the next morning IMO. I personally don't see a big difference in taste, compared to wine, bourbon, or scotch. If you want to convince me about $20 vs. $50, I'll consider that, but $3 wine is shiot.

    There is absolutely a tangible difference between $3 wine and $50 wine, to say otherwise is foolish. That being said, boxed wine has come a long way, it isn't bad per se and in fact has the longevity benefits mentioned at the end. I'm not a wine snob and we tend to drink bottles under $10. On a related note, my fraternity had a full bar and we would fill, say, Tanqueray gin bottles with local rotgut gin (from Kappy's for MA locals). Similar for Vodka. I don't remember a single person recognizing the difference.

    You seem high maintenance. Remind me not to marry you.

    Interesting analogy. I agree with Nickelback; I think they were good at what they did and enjoy their music, but it's hipster to hate them. Much like it is hipster to like Radiohead even tho they basically did one song (Creep) that most people know; otherwise they were fairly irrelevant IMO. That being said, always bet on relish in the MLB races. I like relish on a hot dog as well, with ketchup.

    This wasn't a thing I did growing up so I can't comment. I can see the allure tho, as I like some crunchiness to sammiches. Ketchup on hot dogs WAS a thing growing up, so blow me. Hated mayo, still do. Hated mustard but have come to enjoy it over time; in fact if I have the fixins I will make a Chicago dog vs. ketchup.

    Dunkin Donuts....GFY to the 'Woke' people.

    I went to Vancouver recently, there is a Tim Hortons on every corner it seems. Hasn't made it to the Phoenix area as near as I can tell. I didn't have their coffee so I can't comment. Starbucks is more prevalent than Dunkin here, although a google map search shows a surprising number of Dunkins within 20 miles that I was not aware of. I generally go for timewasters/meetings vs. actual coffee preference, and Starbucks works fine for that. It's a familiarity thing for me, kinda like I Uber but don't Lyft because Uber has worked so why learn a new app? Not a fan of Pike's tho, and that is the Starbucks signature coffee. I do like their lighter blends but they don't often have it brewed.

    New Cowboys play: Zeke cuff 23

    What happens in Vegas... actually happens, ignore the ads. Also, every pro athlete should be required to write "nothing good happens after midnight" 1000 times every year. Just saying. Zeke's not long for this league.

    How do you reconcile your views vs your actions?

    I'm a guy in his 50's who has had a V. My third child was a surprise, and we never considered aborting her, so I feel like I have some standing here. I did have the V afterwards, because I realized I was done having kids. She graduates HS this week. I also said here recently that my wife and I would advise our daughters to keep a child and that we would help, but ultimately it would be her and the father's decision.

    Arizona thanks you. Copper is one of our 5 C's (copper, cattle, cotton, citrus, climate).

    Or, declare the Monday after the SB to be a national holiday. I've wanted this for decades.

    People who walk around the gym barefoot

    I was going to say... I did taekwondo for a long time, we had hundreds of people on the mats barefoot at tourneys, and 10s of people in any one class during the week, and it never seemed like a big deal. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

    Good Morning

    It's not getting above 90 here for the next week. That is crazy cool for Phoenix this time of year. Also awesome because my daughter's HS graduation is at an outdoor stadium on Thursday, and her grad party is at our house on Sunday (indoor/outdoor). Woot!
