Year of the Boar
« on: February 17, 2007, 04:37:31 PM »

I'm off to my brother's place for a Chinese New Year party. (His fiancee (suck it Chin) is from Hong Kong and her sister's family emigrated about 3 years ago.) It tends to be busy, loud, and most of the conversations are completely unintelligible to non Cantonese speakers.

By late evening most of the casual guests are gone and the Chinese people adjourn to the basement for all night rounds of Mahjong (having watched them play it looks more like work than fun, very serious business), leaving my family upstairs to relax and to drink.

Remy Martin XO tends to flow freely at these events (apparently it's widely appreciated among people from Hong Kong), so I'll tip back a glass or two for the golfhos crowd. Happy New Year bitches.  Cheers

I don't know. I've been specifically instructed to not bring anything, so I'll drink what's offered. If there's bourbon present, it's more likely to be Maker's Mark. Free is free, so I won't complain.

I don't understand the question.

[Still here. Apparently I misunderstood when Laura said, "I'm ready" that she actually was, in fact, ready.]

Apologize for what? Didn't seem pissy to me.  Don't Know

Oh well, bless you my child and go in peace.

Unless, it's Louis XIII. Then you can add a zero to that. Street price: $1600 per bottle.

Here's one on eBay.

Sorry.  Just had the kind of day where I didn't meet any expectations at home. Cry

That, I guess, put me into the pissy mood.

BTW, padre, I am only "child" to you in regards to your worshipness, not age!

I've never touched the stuff myself. I only drink Cristal.  Wink

I've seen "XIII" locked up behind glass at Asian markets next to the other bottles of cognac marked "XO". I figured it was just the high-end version of the XO-grade.
