10 years of Bourbonators

I've updated the poker points from Friday night. I think I might be able to do those from my phone now, we'll have to try it out some time.

I was noticing that the Bourbonators started in 2003. Colin and I were talking about it. I wasn't there when it started but he was and he thought it was summer or fall when they had the first meeting. Anyone remember? If my math skills are still working, 2003-2013 would be 10 years. Holy crap! Dudes kept this going 10 years!

Anyone interested in thinking about doing anything special to celebrate? A blow the budget kinda whiskey? Commemorative bowling shirts?

Costco has a very interesting store brand whisky

So, Tony found out that Costco has a 20 year old single malt Scottish whisky for sale at about $50. Sounded interesting, how bad could it be? It was finished in a sherry cask...that's usually a plus.

As it turns out, it's pretty darn good. Lightly sweet with a spicy finish, pretty much everyone was very pleasantly surprised with how it tasted. Maybe the rest of the guys will chime in and discuss this more.

We had 13 players for tonight's first tournament. I started by running decent hands into slightly better decent hands but some how avoided a lot of traps. In the end, I finished second and paid for the night. Ah, poker. How I miss you.

2013 Craft Beer Fest

I was getting really curious about if/when the Craft Beer Expo would happen, so I sent the organizers an email. His reply simply said May 4. It's on my calendar and the hall pass request has been made. Maybe even Lemmer and Ross could make a road trip? Thoughts?
