Top 10 Resolutions – Drinking Edition

With the New Year upon us I thought I would offer SizzUp’s top 10 resolutions for 2009 with a bit of a twist, of lime that is:

#10 – We will stop pissing on the (toilet) seat after a night out.  Who wants to sit in piss come the morning or worse… Face the gf/wife who sat in it?  (Ladies, you’re not completely innocent here either so stop blaming it on your man). 

#9 – The drunken spill.  We’re all guilty of it and the drunker we get the higher the probability that it will happen.  Seeing as the last thing we want to do is pour our $14 cocktail all over some muscle bound freak, I propose double sided tape, or better yet glue… Just place some on your palm for extra grip!

#8 – (Applies only to post-grads) Never again will we settle for cheap beer.  Swear off Busch, Natural Light, Milwaukee’s Best, Hurricane (Slurricane), or anything else that you may have drank in college.

#7 –  No more blackouts! This should be near the top of the list, but we say it every year and it still happens, so… This time we mean it! (maybe)

#6 – Goes hand in hand with #9, Beer Goggles be gone!  No more drunken hookups with perfect 10’s that turn out to be nothing more than a 5 in the morning…

#5 – Hangover free mornings… No this doesn’t mean we are going to quit drinking, it just means we are going to find the REAL TRUE Hangover cure!

New Year’s Eve ’08

Some things to remember from 2008…

The Good:

Giants upset the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII proving once and for all that “Cheaters Never Prosper”.

Michael Phelps inspired a nation, winning 8 gold medals at the Beijing Olympics.

And, the most important event of them all, Barack Obama becomes the first African American President of the US.

The Bad/Ugly: 

Sarah Palin & her team of “Mavericks”, Government Scandal – Elliot Spitzer & Rod Blagojevich, Financial Crisis, & Bernard Madoff… I think that pretty much sums it up!

Wishing you a Happy New Year from all of us here at SizzUp!  Here’s to a great 2009,

Jackson-Triggs Proprietors’ Reserve Sparkling Wine – Great for New Year’s

Before I had even woken up, he had made his trip to the grocery store and purchased all of his necessities for making my mother and me a spectacular brunch meal.

He made us smoked salmon and chive omelets, but snazzed it up a few more notches with sparkling wine…

He brought home a really delicious sparkling wine, not champagne – as only sparkling wine from Champagne, France may be actually labelled “champagne” – everything else is sparkling wine.

It was a 2006 Jackson-Triggs Proprietors’ Reserve Sparkling Wine – Méthode Cuve Close from right here in our Niagara Region – one of the most amazing wine regions on the planet!

If you’re going to partake in some buttery seafood or even a fatty duck for New Year’s, consider this blended sparkling wine made from 3 types of grape – Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Read the rest of this entry »
