Well, just when we thought this year’s bourbon season has come and gone. I thought I would try one more thing. (No, not the secondary market. For those out there who consider that stuff, consider this blog to be a way to learn how to do it right.) I wrote a letter. A handwritten letter […]

Quite the cliffhanger, am I right? Well, the interval between Week Nineteen and this week was such a stressful time. I mean, we were scared we would get nothing. But we could definitely get something, but it was all up in the air. And then we got “the text”… “Hey yous twos! This is [Steve] […]

On Thursday, November 19th, Trevor and I found that our state liquor stores received their allocations of the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection and the Pappy Van Winkle line.Thanks Bourbonr.com!

This week was pretty good, nothing too crazy. We go in on a Thursday night because [Steve] wasn’t working on Fridays lately. The store is pretty empty and they’re watching Thursday night football on a TV above the counter area. The Broncos are playing the Chiefs. Trevor avoids the screen because he was recording the game to watch later. […]

I had to write this day of because it was so great! Week eleven was nuts! So Trevor and I show up to the liquor store on a Saturday afternoon around 3pm. It is packed, but we do see [David], the store manager, and [Steve] there. They are a little busy. [David] is at the […]

So before we go into what amazing things happened this week, and trust me, they were glorious, first I wanted to bring up the revelations that Trevor and I had the week of this visit. Trevor and I realized we have an alcohol problem. Certainly not alcoholism (we don’t even drink more than a glass […]
