Hmm, 74 out of 100 aint shabby.  As for those I haven’t tried, well, suppose I haven’t sought them out.  Funny that I’m up on the liquors, not so much on the wine.  I have my reasons.  Actually looking back on the list, there are a few things I’m pretty sure I have had, but need to try again, because apparently they just weren’t memorable enough.  If you’re wondering what the hell some of these things are, go ask Darcy.  He’s like a very polite drinks-specializing google.

Looks like Scofflaw’s Den, Stevi and Sam Harrigan are already in on the action.  Looks like Marshall Stevi and I are about neck and neck.  This will have to change.

42/99. Milk & molasses is out FOREVER for me, as a Doctor at the hospital I worked at ordered a round of M&M enemas for a patient. (yes, I’m dead serious) Smell haunted me for months.

Y’all spelled Guinness wrong, by the way.
