I’m supposed to be packing. However, I can’t stop thinking about Utah and booze. In California, the single best thing is being able to buy liquor at the supermarket. Being able to comparison shop between Ralph’s, Von’s, Costco and Trader Joes forces the entire editorial staff to swoon.
I’m thinking specifically of how difficult it’s going to be to buy the premium (I didn’t say snooty and ridiculously overpriced) hootch for special occassions. The Blurbodoocery is partial to the following:
Vodka: Ketel One
Bourbon: Maker’s Mark (as featured in Sam Raimi’s Spiderman)
Canadian Whisky: Seagram’s VO (this is new territory, we’re drinking a lot of Manhattan’s lately)
Irish Whisky: Bushmill’s
Scotch: The Dalmore (it’s really cheap at Trader Joe’s and it refers to itself in third person)
Tequila: Herradura Silver
I’m guessing we’ll be doing liquor runs to Wyoming, Idaho and/or Nevada.
