The Most Expensive Glass of Whisky in the World

I have a rule about cocktails: anything over $13 is going to suck. I have a similar rule about spirits: anything over $20 probably isn't worth it.

After reading about LA's "luxury whisky bar" £10, I think I'm making a new rule: anything with a five-digit price tag is just stupid. Granted, I haven't tried the 64 year old, Sherry oak aged Macallan Scotch that fetches $64,000 per pour, so I may owe £10, and Macallan, an apology. Until our little blog finds a patron to sponsor a pour of that nonsense, I'm sticking with my $11 San Francisco cocktails, thanks.

PS: Note the Cocktail Kingdom barware in the article's picture. I have that at home. Not so luxury now, LA.

Meet Kerry-O, our new dive bar correspondent

Besides having a vibrant cocktail culture, San Francisco has great dive bars. Or so we've been told. Actually, Noelle and I never go to dive bars. She's got a mild case of agoraphobia, and I hate loud places. We've decided, however, that our inadequacies have deprived this blog of a great drinking culture for too long. Are we venturing into the crowds? The sights, smells, and sounds? Not a chance. Someone else is.

Meet Kerry-O.


Kerry-O goes wherever she damn well pleases, and it so happens that she loves her a good dive bar. We've enlisted her help in exploring all of the good dives in SF and reporting back to the thirsty public. Look forward to her posts, which will give the skinny on the best local dives.
