Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

I believe it comes premade in a bottle--not sure exactly what it is--and usually combined with a lager, not a Guiness. I have had some delicious shandies in Ireland and England. So nice on a hot summer day!
Avatar 12:58pm Brian in UK:

Homemade lemonade is flat and lovely. Commercial lemonade is carbonated and sweet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Stanley:

Over here a shandy is traditionally half a bitter (ale) and half lemonade (fizzy). You can also have a lager shandy, lager being what most people in the world today call 'beer'.
  12:58pm ?:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm Artie:

I would think that some of the San Pellegrino sodas would work well with the right beers. Their Aranciata serves as a well improved bitter lemon.

Not sure about these adulterated Guinness concoctions. One of those "gotta try it to be sure" deals I suppose.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:00pm Stanley:

Or a 'lemonade top' - an inch of lemonade in your ale to take the bitterness off.

One of the weirder casualties of my quitting smoking was beer. For some reason, I seldom drink beer since I quit. Not sure what the correlation is, but it's something I recently noticed.

What I'd really like to try is Artesian beer, from one of those perpetually flowing wells.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Rich in Washington:

@βrian: that was a running joke in the 70s for one of our local beer companies, after years of boasting of Artesian well water, some advertising smartypants did a series of ads exploring who the Artesians were, what happened to them, etc.
I can't remember which company it was. Maybe Olympia?

@coelacanthø agreed about the san pellegrino grapefruit and gin combo. it is also very good with tequila

But in other parts of the country, I found that "straight" means strained over ice.

Can we segue to Limoncello? I've had only one instance that I liked — very bitter and citrus-y. Had to be served icey cold and was almost overwhelming.

listening to this great show

also, the Eataly in Manhattan
is good, but expensive
just realized it is a chain
Avatar 1:30pm still b/p:

Exactly, Dean. The same approach somewhere as a one-off festival might be more appealing, or no more appealing but at least understandable as a simultaneously warped and genericized creation in a Disney attraction, but as a permanent thing...it's weird, goofy, spiritless, unfortunate bourgeois or wannabe bourgeois foodie-ism. That's a one-visit judgment. Hah!

We have a bottle of Limoncello that was bought for some dessert. There must be cocktails that make good use of it.

Is it de rigueur to wear Carhartts when shopping at Eataly?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:36pm Rich in Washington:

This sounds like my high school art instructor Mr. Lowry. He'd leave the classroom briefly and return reeking of scotch and whistling cheerfully, loudly.

My high school chemistry and physics teacher never smelled of alcohol, but he did spend considerable time demonstrating how he hoped to construct a nuclear fallout shelter out of six-packs of beer. By the time he drank his way out, radioactivity would have declined to a safer level.

Is Eataly the Old Navy of "Italian" food? Sabarro's used to fill that niche.

Our drama teacher was way too fond of the female student body. His then wife was a former student. He was also rather young, but his dalliances with students was considered less taboo back then that it would be today.

One of the drama teachers, the beloved Earl the Pearl, was an absolute hoot. I don't think he ever crossed the line, though he would on occasion seem too familiar with the young ladies. I'll never forget paging through the National Lampoon high school annual parody with him one summer during a break from production. Hearty laughter, tears. He, too, was an adolescent.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Rich in Washington:

It's funny, actually, UM.. Our Drama teacher came off as somewhat effeminate. A lot of us thought when he'd sidle up to one of us boys and say something risque about a female student to us, we thought he was fronting. Nope. He was a hosebeast.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm The Oscar:

Don't recall many overtly pervy teachers, but many in retrospect were huge potheads and weirdos. We had a Spanish teacher who once showed us a video he and his friends made recreating the "Sabotage" video in Mexico City. I spent a semester helping him with sorting papers, and he repayed me with a Dead Milkmen cassette from the floor of his car.
  1:54pm Dean:

Boy, is the playlist grammar challenged today. First we get "I Don't Think Much About Her No More," and just now a flip-side that should read, "I Know To Whom You Have Been Socking It." Really kills the vibe.

Avatar 2:04pm still b/p:

Summer I turned 15, a friend and I went out of town for the summer with a 27 year old teacher to work someplace (27 seems young, but at our age, his adult age could've been much further along -- he didn't seem "young" ) He bought us porn, let us try a cocktail, spoke and joked with us as if WE were older. It was the early 70s, which seems like a more fitting framing and explanation than him being creepy or too strangely inclined to corrupting us yoots.
