Party Time Is Just Around The Corner. Gotta Stock Up On Barware. Not Just Me...YOU TOO! Nothing Says Class Like A Silver Rim Flute Full Of Champagne Or A Chalice Full Of Miller High Life...If You're On The South Side. Either Way, Got Ya Covered! Status: Party Ready!
Nice barware scores, right? I just got the Dorothy Thorpe style silver rim flutes today. The Ruby Red chalices were a weekend find that I'm just now getting around to unwrapping.
My first inclination with the flutes was to flip 'em in the booth, but then I thought - when am I ever
going to find another set of silver rim champagne flutes? I'm keeping 'em! They are quite possibly
the classiest pieces of barware that I now own. I might just have to spend some real money on some
REAL bubbly this New Years Eve! The red chalices, I can probably pry those from the house and
tag 'em up. They're great for serving drinks with ice as they don't cause water ring quite so readily.
I can't find my Playboy bartending guide to find out exactly what the appropriate drink is for a
chalice but a great big strawberry sundae sound pretty good!
Plus, I've already got another set of ruby chalices like these...except with starbursts on them! AND
I've got SO much barware already, I can't keep it all. So yeah, these'll go to The Shag. Soon as I can
get down there. I tried to get by there today to drop off the Boos Block chop butcher block and the
Coca Cola crate after picking up a great c-list find before work, but I ended up hitting a couple of
thrifts instead. I know...I gots the sickness. ::shrug::
