Liquor anyone?

Seeing as I work with a liquor store, we have many perks. One of them is to attend the trade shows that happen during the fall season. This is a time for you to go to a large building and drink just about everything the company has to offer. This is a free event, and you really don’t have to do anything special to get in. There isn’t really tight security or anything. If you were to show and and say you worked for Haskel’s, they would more than likely let you in. I have had numerous friends of mine show up to these things without me and they never had any trouble getting in.

So, what do you do at these things? Eat and drink. Simple as that. For me, it is a chance to taste all the wine that I can in a short amount of time. Now some of you may be saying “Um, Nate, you can’t drink a ton and then expect to drive home.” You would be right. here are many places for you to spit out what you are drinking instead of swallow it. Total alcohol abuse, I know, but very necessary. I am going to one tonight. By the end of the evening I will have tried about 75 to 100 hundred wines and other alcoholic beverages. Without spitting, I would have passed out around 45 small cups of liquid. Some people get absolutely hammered, though. That is the other perk. People watching is sometimes even better than going out to the clubs at night. Nothing like watching people who think they are more sophisticated getting drunk and stupid. Good times…

    I am totally sophisticated when drunk. I am also a good dancer and I am really, really sexy.

    I just went to one of these during my last trip to San Francisco. A friend of mine is a sommelier. It was surreal. Totally a scene out of a movie. Fancy hotel with an incredible view. Funky lighting. Funky food. Craziness.

    I don’t know if they’re all like that.
