Holiday Madness!

Well, the liquor department is getting sacked and I'm scrambling here in RWC to do anything I can to plug the holes.  If you're looking for something, call ahead or check the web and buy in advance before you stop buy.  I'm selling whiskies by the case that haven't moved in months.  I keep thinking I have enough of each product in stock and then someone on the internet buys us out and ships it for Christmas presents.  I'm learning how to balance the holiday rush, but I'm not doing a very good job so far.  I apologize to those of you who stopped by thinking, "of course, they'll have plenty of Talisker 10." 

After the rush is over and the New Year has begun, look for a total revamping and expanding of the whole department - starting with cognac, armagnac and mixers.  Stay tuned.  Now that I know how this thing works and it's not a mad panic I think we can really start putting together the best collection in the Bay Area. 

Tonight after we close I'm heading up to Alembic Bar in SF to jump behind the counter and make some drinks for Savoy Cocktail night.  If you haven't seen the book, it's a gargantuan pre-Prohibition cocktail recipe bible that has a whole slew of fancy ingredients that haven't been seen since 1910.  The goal is to be able to recreate any drink in the book.  I'll be there with Alembic bartender Daniel Hyatt and Mr. Savoy Erik Ellestad, who has been going through the manual and making every single recipe in alphabetical order, while documenting the journey with photos and tips.  You can visit him here:

Sorry for the lack of updates lately.  We're slammed.  Come have a drink tonight.

Nowadays, you can easily find various north face jackets on sale and choose the style you like.Winter is grim for human beings. However, human beings are so intelligent that they can create things that not only keep the cold away but also make wearers more elegant. north face jackets is one of human beings' great thoughts.
