[cheap] Beer Lad Gets Salty

I'm starting to realize that this whole online dating thing is sorta like getting a puppy. At first it's all tickling, cuddling and cute overload...then the little bastard shits on your floor. In my case, that shit is presenting itself in the form of: a steadily draining bank account, debilitating hangovers and a good hour every night spent responding to email.

I don't know how much longer I'm gonna be able to keep this up. But, I will press on, purely for the sake of Beerlass.

(more after the jump)

My date Saturday night was largely a drunken affair at a gay bar (don't ask, I won't tell), so I won't waste space here going into the details. I again, had fun with a cute, smart girl.

Since I don't have anything to write about, food and beverage-wise, from my date, I would like the chance to rave about my new, favorite eight dollar bottle of wine: Sebeka Cabernet Pinotage. I picked up a bottle of this randomly at the liquor store on 24th and South. With such a weak selection - apparently Yellow Tail qualifies as premium there - it was nice to find something that was tasty...and cheap. Thus far, I've pre-lubricated before two dates with this wine. I don't know if was a result of the wine or my stellar personality, but the bullshit has flown like, well, wine on both dates.

So, do give the Sebeka a try if you're in the liquor store and want to avoid that growler of Carlo Rossi. Maybe some day the liquor laws in PA will come out of the 18th century and we'll be able to order affordable wine over the internet like normal people. Until then, just load up wine.woot.com every day, drool and send a pissy letter to your State Representative.
