Blogpire Podcast - Liquor Snob - All The News that's Fit to Drink 10.24.06 | Liquor Snob
Just stumbled across this looking for inspiration for the recently elusive Friday Cocktail. Haven't had a chance to listen to it, but I wanted to be able to find it at home to add to my podcasts.

An online archive of my paper ephemera collection, Arkiva Tropika celebrates not just Polynesian Pop, but also the classic heyday of all tropical (& tropical themed) restaurants, hotels, bars, etc.
I'm especially fond of the droolworthy cocktail menus.
The site is easily searchable and all the images are high quality.

RICHARD CHEESE - Lounge Singer Versions Of The Hits - richardcheese.com
I got a hillarious email from Richard Cheese today that mentions his contest to give birth to his 7/7/7 baby. Here is the first rule of entry:
1) Get impregnated by Richard Cheese on October 14th, 2006. (Conception date is based on a 28-day menstrual cycle. Contestants must adjust their conception date based on their own cycle; Richard Cheese and his assignees are not responsible for miscalculated ovulations.) If, due to high demand from other contestants, Richard Cheese is unavailable to "get busy" with you on October 14th, try to schedule him in for the day before or after. In vitro fertilization will not be allowed; only numerous trysts with Richard Cheese will be permitted.
So, you can use this information however you like. To read the rest of the "contest" rules, follow the link above, then click Extra Cheese in the banner at the top, then Contests on the left. It took me while to find it and I don't see a way to link to it directly, but it's a hoot.

Squirl: A Site for Collectors
Neat free site that allows you to organize and share your collections. It's got all the social networking and rss feed capabilities we're coming to expect from this type of thing. I'm posting this because I might use it to catalog my vintage barware collection.
Posting has been anemic lately I know. Fall is the busiest time of the year for my work, and we closed on the house 3 weeks ago, so we've been moving non-stop. We've painted the complete interior, with just a few doors and trim work to finish. Things are generally put away, and the largest artwork has been placed. The biggest tasks left are office and bar organization, and then the yardwork. We're very happy with the new diggs.
Speaking of the lack of recent posts, is anyone interested in contributing. It's easy, really doesn't take much time if you're already surfing anyway. Let me know via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll fill you in on the details.
