re: Things to do in Atlanta? - wiltznucs
A city generally best appreciated when viewed from a rear view mirror. Lived there for over 20 years. Anyhow, I still have family there and it's gotten better in many areas. Ponce City Market is cool for food. You can get one of the City's better burgers there plus some other cool options unde...

re: Tell me about Hawaii - wiltznucs
Yep, it's a long trip for sure. We'd do 7 full days in Hawaii, so 9 days including travel. With round trip airfare at $700 a ticket it feels hard to pass up. I need to make a decision soon....

re: Tell me about Hawaii - wiltznucs
Flights are going cheap and we're considering making the trip the week leading up to Thanksgiving. 3-4 days on Oahu and another 3-4 on the big island. Sound about right? Any must see items at either? Considering the AirBnB route as opposed to hotels. Family of four, myself and the Missus ...

re: School me on rye whiskey please - wiltznucs
Hit up your local shop with a solid whiskey selection and get a bottle of Pikesville Rye. Best bang for your buck in Rye that I've seen in years. ...

re: Have you ever been laid off? - wiltznucs
Yep, it sucks. Dealt with it twice in a period of a decade or so. Nothing quite like the feeling of not knowing how you are going to support your family. Saw it coming, but not soon enough to have another job lined up. If I learned anything, if you are worried at the prospect of being laid off...

re: Tampa Recs - wiltznucs
Agreed, the Columbia would be more accurately described as Spanish cuisine IMHO. They do some Cuban dishes and do them well. Bern's is what I call "Florida Formal" meaning anything goes. I've seen folks in shorts with a polo and flip flops in there many times. Slacks and a dress shirt is perfe...

Any of y'all have experience with Rocket Pots out of Covington? - wiltznucs
Long story short, ordered a pot on 5/17. Told it would be 2-3 weeks. So now some six weeks out, they don't answer the phone and their voicemail inbox is full. No response to emails. Was able to get someone on the phone last week, was told they'd call me back with an update. Glad I didn't hold m...

re: Ban the box on college applications? - wiltznucs
Agreed, it's college and not a job. The college can and should look after the safety of their students. A violent criminal history should certainly be considered in admissions. A misdemeanor charge like drug possession should be irrelevant as let's face it a considerable amount of students an...

re: What do you pay for craft beers? - wiltznucs
Pints have pretty much settled in around $6 here locally at most Breweries. Some still have them at $5. Stouts or other special offerings between $7-10. Special release bottles average $20-25 for big stouts. Some have hit the $30 mark....

re: Should every man own a suit? - wiltznucs
The MBA in me says yes... The self employed adult in me says it really depends on your industry and stage of life. A must for white collar professionals or if you find yourself at numerous formal events or weddings. The happiest day of my life was donating my suits and dress shoes to Goodwill...

re: The Radium Girls — still glowing in their coffins - wiltznucs
I worked with Radioactive Materials for nearly 20 years. This is the usual case study for Radiation Biology and is certainly among the more fascinating incidents. Other good ones are the Marshall Islanders after the US atomic bomb testing in the Pacific. The US failed to consider wind direction ...

re: So we have the homebrew threads, but anyone ferment their own wine? - wiltznucs
I own Garagiste Meadery in Tampa, FL. We specialize in mead; but, we've been known to dabble in traditional table wines from time to time. Our first commercial offerings should be out there this Summer. FL distro only for the time being. Wine kits are pretty much fool proof as I mentioned ea...

re: So we have the homebrew threads, but anyone ferment their own wine? - wiltznucs
I've homebrewed a few, now I do it for a living and own a winery. Some great kits out there that have won numerous awards in reputable competitions. The only challenge with kits is that they are typically made to be fool proof. This often means the included yeast strain is a aggressive cham...
