Behind The Bar For August 2014

Ommegang Three PhilosophersI love beer. Love it. And whiskey. Cause whiskey is awesome.  Hell, come to think of it, I’m a big fan of most liquid libations. I started a project last year where I kept track of  the amount and frequency of my drinking.  I’m calling that project “Behind The Bar”. This post will be updated during the month of August 2014 as I have a night out or a cocktail at home.  Stay tuned!

  1. Home Sweet Home – 8.1.2014
    Miller Lite x 2
    Dinner at home with the family kicking off the birthday weekend.
  2. Mom & Dad’s – 8.2.2014
    Perfect Manhattan x 2
    Went to Mom & Dad’s for family dinner which included some SILLY Delmonico steaks, salmon, roasted peppers, etc. Great time.
  3. Pickle Bill’s – 8.3.2014
    Summer Shandy x 2
    Went to Pickle Bill’s to celebrate A’s birthday after a day at Mentor Headlands (which I’d never been to). They’ve got all you can eat crablegs / lobster on the menu which we didn’t get because we’d just gone to Lure last week. Good food, but probably wouldn’t go back if I wasn’t going for the AYCE options.
  4. Chagrin Valley Country Club – 8.7.2014
    Jack Daniel’s x 2
    Went to the club for the annual summer swim banquet.  Good buffet and awards program followed by swimming under the lights for the boys. Great evening.
  5. Home Sweet Home – 8.9.2014
    Miller Lite x 2
    Couple of ice cold beers with dinner always hits the spot.
  6. Home Sweet Home – 8.10.2014
    Beer x 3, Perfect Manhattan, Woodford Reserve
    Had the Magnes family over for grilling & s’ mores by the fire.  Wasn’t driving so I was drinking. Monday morning was rough.
  7. PA Quit Meet (Landsdale, PA) – 8.15.2014
    Cleveland Whiskey, Miller Lite, Fireball
    Started off the 7th annual PA Quit Meet with a bang on Friday night. Great friends, great time.
  8. PA Quit Meet (Landsdale, PA) – 8.16.2014
    Miller Lite, Fireball
    More of the same… just ALL day. Actually took it easy on the drinking / eating front. Just a nice easy pace all day as I visited with fellow quitters.
  9. Home Sweet Home (SummerSlam) – 8.17.2014
    Miller Lite x 3
    Took it easy after a weekend of eating / drinking, but Marko came over to watch SummerSlam. How can you watch a PPV without a beer or two?
  10. Blue Canyon – 8.24.2014
    Gentleman Jack x2, Yuengling x2
    Went to dinner with Erik & Jenny sans kiddos which was awesome. 2 JDs and 2 beers was just about perfect. Had elk flank steak which had a great flavor but was “tough”.
  11. Home Sweet Home – 8.26.2014
    Woodford Reserve
    Had a guy come over to purchase the workout machine that’s been sitting and gathering dust for years. This was set up via Craig’s List. Wife naturally left the house when he was there so I was left alone. Had a drink by myself to celebrate avoiding the Craig’s List Killer 🙂
  12. Harry Buffalo (Cleveland) – 8.27.2014
    312 Urban Wheat Ale / Oberon Ale
    Went to the Harry Buffalo to attend a happy hour for a co-worker who’s moving groups. Company paid beers?  Win.
  13. Old Firehouse Winery (Geneva) – 8.29.2014
    Wine sampler / Cabernet
    Celebrated our 16 year anniversary with a trip to a winery in Geneva. Sampler of dry / sweet wines followed by a glass of the Cab.
  14. Georgetown Restaurant – 8.30.2014
    Jack Daniel’s x 2
    More anniversary celebrations tonight at Georgetown. Our first time there and it was great. Sat outside on the patio followed by dancing at VOSH next door.
  15. Mom & Dad’s – 8.31.2014
    Perfect Manhattan x 2
    Had a Labor Day cookout with the family. Ribs, chicken, etc. Great way to end the summer.
