You are a young man, perhaps you have a college degree  you might even have earned yourself a nice job..with your very own cubicle. Now that you are in the real world, it’s about time you started to drink like it. See, when you go out with your co-workers, you cannot expect them to take […]


Get any Sommelier liquored up enough, and they might admit to you a time honored secret- wine pairing is a myth. A myth that has made a lot of people very rich. So of course, no-one would ever admit that. Well we just did- oops. But in case you are still interested in acting like […]

It’s an easy way to impress your friends without having to put yourself in physical harm or learn a new language, or become an ambassador […]

Hosting is an art

There are tons of way to impress guests when entertaining in one’s home. You can show off the old big screen, flat or otherwise. You can always cash in cool points on having a good collection of pretty much anything that doesn’t make you seem like a pre-teen trapped in an adult’s body. So knives, […]
