Hi Folks-

We had a great Christmas here at the Allen – Foote home. We ate like royalty and after hours we celebrated by sharing gifts of really good bourbon and a selection of fine cigars. I somehow had it in my mind that good cigars would be a fun addition to the party, though I hadn’t smoked a cigar in years. I’d mentioned the idea to Sharon who subsequently sent Chelsea on the errand of buying the cigars at Garcia Cigar Shop in Burlington. Chels found a clerk who advised her on what the shop’s best cigars were, on the lighter side, and she came away with a collection of seven cigars. I ended up buying five more cigars from Cigars, Direct in Tampa.

The bourbon acquisitions were more complicated and suffice it to say that we ended up with three bourbons that Sharon gifted Chelsea and Chelsea gifted me. Basil Hayden’s bourbon, Bookers, which is 120 proof, and 4 roses made up the bourbon menu for the evening and Alec and Chelsea and Sharon and I spent the latter part of the evening puffing and sipping away – no one having to drive anywhere, making it more fun entirely.

Come to think of it, the same routine would be great to pull on New Years. The store has Standing Rib Roasts on sale for $11.99 lb for the week beginning Friday the 29th. And we have a full complement of seafood available, including oysters, scallops, swordfish and shrimp.
