Midnight Two o’clock strikes AND your stomach is making strange noises—Yes, you’re hungry—Right? A pizza here & some sandwich there—Well, we understand you completely!
Alcohol—it's a common thing to be present in the house for most American families. Many children have seen their parents drink, perhaps have a beer after a long day at work or even a glass of red wine with dinner as the family joins together to talk about their day.
Six months ago, I didn’t know how this was going to go. I didn’t know if I’d quit for a week, a month, two months, the classic one hundred days, or more. Here I am today, six months after I chose to take a break from drinking, which was how I thought about it at the time. Taking a break— something that is temporary. I didn’t know how long this would last, and I still don’t. I do, however, know that six months is longer than I originally predicted I’d be able to go. As someone that had spent the past five years or so drinking regularly, I wasn’t sure I’d be able to stick with the sober lifestyle. What would Saturday nights be like if I wasn’t going to my favorite bar and relaxing with a few PBRs? What would I order to drink at nice dinners when the wine list was off limits? What would special occasions be like minus the White Russian or Long Island Iced Tea? And speaking of special occasions, over the past six months, I’ve had several come up that I’ve spent sober for the first time in years. I’ve attended two open bar weddings since going sober, including my own sister’s. On top of that, there’s been Thanksgiving, Christmas; New Years was especially hard. St. Patrick’s Day. In just a few weeks, my birthday. All of that being said, there are things that I’ve learned over the past six months—some of which I expected, some I didn’t. Here are a few.
Better get to practicing in the ways to open a beer with an opener, because these peanut butter beer creations deserve a strange opening. I know most would be either mortified, or pretty much disgusted by the following beverage choices, but you can't deny that the peanut butter flavor is a nostalgic hit that's sure to not only warm your heart, but tingle your inner child-soul, as well. They also have some of the funniest names, I mean Sweet Baby Jesus and Belching Beaver? You can't not at these hilarious namesakes.
Recently, I went to Dans le Noir restaurant in Holborn, London.
