$13 burger seems standard even outside of an airport for a non-drive thru

I am not super duper sophisticated in the wine dept but we let that suckah decant for an hour+ and it tasted pretty fuggin goot. I opted for the chateaubriand as opposed to their famous duck and I believe the 2 were meant for eachother as it was in fact a magnificent pairing

Sounds legit awesome Skwid.

(Hopefully it was obvious I was just kidding with the "past peak" nonsense. Not sure I've ever even seen a bottle of wine north of $500 let alone taste one.)

Well... I am cute and blond.

Ordered a beer there on the way back from Europe and laughed when I got the bill.

Wow Squid, how have you cellared that?

I started a cellar about ten years ago but stopped after realising I didnít have good enough storage conditions

Iíve drunk Grange a few times which is the highest rated Aus wine and itís delicious albeit I donít think my palate is developed much above the $60 a bottle (off trade) standard.

Skwid and I will be happy to show you what to do with your fine wine for the price of a plane ticket

Oh no!

Had it gone flat?

Or was it a cork mold issue?

Pro tip: Cold Duck never goes bad.

Spoiler:


I will admit I know **** all about wine. Would like to be a little knowledgeable about it but let's be honest - I am a gutter drunk hillbilly. Got a shelf full of quality whiskey and bourbons and I am usually mixing 7 and 7s.

I was going to point out that chances are you would be a spectator and not the person being wiped, but I see your point still stands.

here is teh price history of this bad boy - this is the most spensive bottle I have consumed.

https://www.wineinvestment.com/wine/...stournel/1982/

Like I said - twas a boondoggle meal. And no better way to boondoggle than to spend more than 3x the cost of said meal on a single bottle o wine
Ooooooooh

Looking at the price history graph, maybe I ought to be buying a few dozen $20 bottles and hoping one of them becomes rare

C== wine noob

M&E is Midwest staple, $13 should be the final bill tip included.

I feel silly having to think and study and balance and all that crap against the small handful of competent hoodie grinders just to eke out a few BBs, and then going and blasting off several hundred BBs to whales calling 3bets with any two cards

Maybe I'll just retire from thinking poker and become a 30-year-old OMC. They seem to be happy
