The Forum Lounge Thread (2022)
 
Happy New Year from Hangzhou, China!

As I was starting this thread, I remembered the first time I stumbled upon this forum after a miserable delayed flight into YVR. At the time I just wanted to vent and maybe figure out a way to craw some comp back from AC.

Yet I stumbled upon this treasure cove and learned so much about RTWs, credit card churns and AQM runs. It was between 2017 and 2020, where I had the privilege to leverage the things I learned here from all of them and got to go to places and experience things that I would otherwise never would have been able to.

And man......I am not going to lie how much I missed flying out during a long weekend to Deerlake, New York... or Quebec City.... or that long TPAC from Tokyo to Toronto. Or that one time where I still hoped to work as PM in SFO and flew down on that old 767 with Scott for a day to visit Twitter.

I miss those days, I miss you guys, I miss those in-person DOs, and I hope one day, things will go back to the way they were.

I know its been awhile since I showed up here, but I do want to wish everywhere a happy new year, please stay safe!

Anyone drinking anything exciting and New Year's-y tonight? I figure I'll make some sparkling wine-based cocktails.

I thought it was 2022 now? ;)

All times local.

Or until codfather flips the page.

I'm heading to Ungrafted for dinner. Not sure my plans for actual NY, but I'm sure I'll have something at least as exciting as a French 75.

@Bohemian1, do you have the Death & Co. cocktail book? Seems like the kind of thing you might have.

French 75 isn't at all exciting :)

Yes, I have the Death & Co. book. Having enjoyed beverages there in the distant past, it seemed like a natural.

That said, I would still probably recommend the related Cocktail Codex first, at least for those who really want to dream up their own beverages.

The Death & Co. book was received as a Christmas gift, so nothing I can do about the order :)

I cracked it open for the first time tonight. I'm annoyed by the lack of an ingredient-based index, since I often decide what to drink based on what spirit or liqueur I want to have.

But otherwise it looks interesting so far. Although many of the sparkling wine-based cocktails require some exotic syrup I don't have on hand.

I know, and that was sort of my point.

But I did make an Always and Forever for the bovine and I, and it's...boozy.
