+1 but will on a rare occasion drink a light beer or Corona if I'm working to be social.

I don't either. If I do drink it's Bacardi and Coke.

Tonight, it's been coffee.

On Christmas Eve, I took my fiancee, her brother and his wife to the all you can eat and drink hibachi and sushi deal they have here. All you can drink Kirin beer and cold sake were included. Was 600 RMB or less than a $100 for 4 people. No tip. It's actually pretty high quality for China. My head was paying for it the Christmas day though.

$100 is a lot of dough in China as I found out.

Oh yeah it goes a long way. If we eat cheap we will go get a couple of bowls of Guilin noodles with fish balls around 8 RMB each maybe a $1.20. Our big family dinner on the weekend for 4 or 5 at Little Sheep Hot Pot might be 200-250 RMB so roughly $31-35. In January, I took a friend to hot pot in Plano called Mr Shabu Shabu to show him what I was getting in China. It was $45 for two of us and a quarter of the amount of food you usually get in China!

I love beer. But I don't drink it on Christmas just doesn't mesh with the food well.

Jagermiester and food do go nice together.

Now that SC has relaxed their % laws, it's quite nice.
I had a Christmas Corsendonk, Chimay Blue, a couple of Great Divide Hibernations last night, a Dogfish Head Old School Barleywine, and a Bison Barleywine. Tonight will have a Delirium Noel and a N'Ice Chouffe, among others.

Are you sure you're an adult? And not a twelve-year-old boy?

I don't drink much. But seeing this thread makes me want to stop and get something new. The Sam Adams Cranberry Lambic sounds realllly good.

Can't get these little beauties up North, so I'm taking advantage while I'm in the dirty South. Also, had a few glasses of some phenomenal Pinot Grigio with dinner last night, and will certainly be hitting the 'nog/Christian Brothers at some point over the week.

You haven't had the right beer. And no, American/Foreign macro's are not good beer.

Tonight, so far, I've had 2 very strong Long Island Ice Teas and now (7:47 pm PST) I'm drinking water and I plan to go dancing in Monterey, CA at 9 PM and have a couple of more LIITz.

My brother got me some Maker's Mark for Christmas. I can't carry it on, and we fear checking it, since it might break and ruin our other stuff in there... so bottoms up!

Also my girlfriend dissolved some Skittles in Svedka, which I'll definitely be trying. With my love of all things Vodka and skittles, it should be fun.

Maker's Mark is my drink of choice. Enjoy it!

My dad got me a bottle of Michel Couvreur Scotch. (He works for the importer.):



So I drank a bit of that Christmas night, along with the Chateauneuf we had with the rib roast and the '76 Terrantez Madeira (my gift for the dad) for dessert.

Thank god for a second Christmas dinner, because I had an awesome Spatlese Riesling on the 26th with my mom (she loves Riesling) and a village-level Burgundy that was okay.

Oh! and Christmas Eve Eve I went to a strip club and downed a bunch of rail bourbon. Tasted like Bowman's, though they're all pretty much the same.
