Drink Often But SlowlyApril 18, 2012
Look, I try my best not to be a New York snob. In fact, for full disclosure, my biggest concern when moving here now about five years ago was being the guy that solely referred to New York as “THE CITY”. So much for that…
But seriously, there is no better place to witness the emergence of spring than in the city. Dammit, I mean New York. The energy is electric, the clothes seem to disappear, and everyone seems to be drinking outside. Which is my favorite part for sure. But it all seems to fly by so fast. With weekends packed with activities and non-stop weekday happy hours, all of a sudden it’s October and were bitching it’s cold again. But this year, I’ve got a slogan to live by.
Drink often but slowly. (Things sound more intelligent when they are in italics, right?)
There is no better way to share an experience or to get to know someone than over your favorite glass of bourbon, or by sharing a great bottle of wine; these details are the catalysts to great memories. And the more you savor them as they occur, the more memorable they truly are. Oh, and of course, don’t forget to instagram the shit out of those memories as well. Otherwise they never really happened.
It’s been a crazy few weeks and it mostly feels like a whirlwind but it’s time to take a step back and slow down. I’m kicking off my Spring/Summer motto with an awesome whiskey and beer tasting at Idle Hands with some close friends for my Birthday and I couldn’t be more excited. It’s already been a great Birthday week with a night out at Talde in the BK and a cauliflower crust pizza “cake” on Sunday (thanks Nancy!). And I can tell you one thing…
Tonight the first part of that motto will not be an issue!
