Last night, I was grateful for the opportunity to be part of a Zoom get-together of fellow bloggers.
I only knew one of the bloggers beforehand, Ray Visotski, having had the chance to meet him for lunch last December when he happened to be in the Philadelphia area.
Ray sent me an invite earlier in the week for the get-together, asking me if I liked Bourbon and cigars. People who know me know I’m not a Bourbon and cigar kind of guy, but it still sounded like it would be fun to get to know some bloggers beyond just reading their posts and comments.
So last night six of us got together for about an hour on Zoom, five guys with their Bourbon, and me with my Bud Light. I think four of the guys had their cigars lit up (I don’t even know if that phrase makes sense…) Maybe I need to start taking Scottish showers again.
Anyway, it was a fun meeting, and the plans are to do it on a regular basis.
Here is the list of the other guys who were in the meeting; you may know some of them. And yes, it was all old guys wearing glasses, but at least we were somewhat geographically dispersed with the states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, South Carolina, and Florida represented. Most of them have also written about the get-together, which I have linked to below. That was one of the perks of the meeting – it gave us material for a blog post 🙂
- Wally Bock
- Rick George: #WhiskyWednesday – Six Nerds Drinking Whisky And Smoking Cigars
- Kurt Harden: Virtual Whiskey Wednesday
- Steve Landry: Happy Whiskey Wednesday
- Ray Visotski: It Was A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood
I also realized when I read the title of their posts that I don’t know the difference between whiskey (or is it whisky), bourbon, and scotch, or even if there is a difference. Are they just different words to describe the same thing?
Perhaps at the next get-together, they can explain the difference.
I’ll wait for the cigar lesson another time…
