Any of you going to <broken link removed> in Portland this weekend? I just got back - lots of great knives there. Bring lots of cash. I like this show better than the big knife show down in Eugene - closer, smaller, more focussed on custom makers, easier to navigate.

I picked up a Murray Carter <broken link removed> . Many other knives I would have liked to get, but gota pay off some other things first.

Also stopped at McMenamins Edgefield on the way back - it's like Disneyland for adults. A paradise of booze, food and cigars.

A picture of the Kama I scored at the show:

I have no idea what I'm going to do with this - although, Halloween is coming up, so...

Also, my bottle of Edgefield Hogshead Whiskey. Oregon is a bit ahead of us in terms of distilleries, but I predict we'll catch up soon. Dry Fly (Spokane) has some whiskey in the barrel, and if it's anything like their gin/vodka, it's going to be awesome.

How much was that bottle?
I think around $28. 92 proof. Certainly not as complex as some other whiskey/scotch that I have, but I like what they're doing with this & want to support smaller, regional distilleries.

A similar artisan-distillery from Colorado (Stranahans) costs $56/bottle, so this is a pretty good deal. Although, the Stranahans is a bit more complex.

I wouldn't call Mcminamins a "smaller, regional distilleries. "
I think they fake the funk, but some of their beer is OK.


Come on Joey Scotland baby!


Dig that Kama !

When you realize how much consolidation there is in the bourbon/scotch/whiskey business, they are absolutely tiny in comparison. (unless they're owned by Chivas/Diageo/Suntory/etc. and I didn't realize it... in which case, I've been bamboozled; wouldn't be the first time)

In some ways, I think their true business model is historic property owner/manager with booze/food simply enabling the transaction.

Agreed, I live within 5 miles of 3 of them.. Good burgers PROBABLY, but all the long haired hippies they have working behind the counter really turn me off.. Besides the ones I have dated LOL

And the brewers are even worst, look like they have never taken a shower EVER!

You live by three of them??? I think that's known in real estate terms as "location, location, location"

In regard to the brewers: who needs to worry about bathing when you have an almost unlimited supply of booze? :s0114:
