Friday is my reason for living this week. You see, a group of friends have come together and asked Raz if the 3DC would hold a whiskey tasting class for them. That’s right; the 3 Drunken Celts will be hosting a whiskey tasting at the Brewer’s Guild meeting this Friday at 7:30pm. And from what I have heard, attendance should be exceptional.
It never ceases to amaze me how a small party held nearly 5 years ago has grown into such a living entity. Mind you, our inductions into the 3DC (which at last count now boasts somewhere between Pi, 42, or 69 members) have only served to help the cause. It seems a single common love of Whiskey is enough to bring people of all walks and creeds together as life-long friends. I have met some of the best people I know whom I otherwise would never have crossed paths with had it not been for that first 3DC tasting we held.
This tasting also happens to coincide with Raz’ birthday, so the celebratory mood will surely be with us. In fact, I have found a wonderfully appropriate and fitting present from the 3 Drunken Celts to honour his day with. Assuming, of course, that it shows up in time… ::: shakes fist as the gods of shipping :::
Hopefully, sometime –late- Saturday (I sure as hell ain’t waking up early!), I will have pictures to post from the festivities.
