I'm a big fan of Hard Water, the Embarcadero waterfront whiskey bar in San Francisco with a wall of rare selections that would make most Bourbon fans weep. I'm also a big fan of Bauhaus and Love & Rockets, two of my all time favorite rock groups founded by Mr. David J. So I thought to myself last night: why not combine two great things that I love into one spectacular thing? It's like chocolate and peanut butter, right? Or like peas and carrots, as Forrest Gump would say.
I think everyone was pretty pleased. Evan was indeed stoked to make a mint julep for David, and David was just as excited to drink it. We had rare editions of Willett, Four Roses, Westland, and God knows what else (I can't remember it all at this point). Many thanks to Erik and the gang for the fantastic hospitality. If you haven't been to Hard Water yet you need to get over there soon. Each time I visit my wife says to me: "Why don't we come here more often?"
"Because we get shit-faced every time we're here," I reply.
