dionysusDo people drink more when it's cold or hot outside?

I think I tend to drink more when it's cold and I'm hunkered down inside a warm bar. I had a couple Abita Turbo Dogs at Dionysus (pictured) Friday night (great stuff, but it sneaks up on you) and hosted two free live tapings at The 8x10 Saturday afternoon. Both went swimmingly.

I'll post more about them when the episodes air and some video is up.

Had a couple McHenrys at Ropewalk Saturday evening with the WTMD crew (we had the dining room almost to ourselves, which was nice).

What was everyone else up to?

In the final stages of recuperation from the mother of all colds, I decided to finally start sending out Christmas cards and assembling a list of people I need to buy gifts for.

Better late than never!

Had to work and while at work the new bar business magazine was delivered.

I was pleasantly surprised to read a featured article on the Baltimore bar scene inside the magazine (it's a national magazine).

It can be found online here. It's a 4 page spread.
