Great concept! Didn't realize you had a thing for sake.

Horvendile said...

Oh God yes. Sashimi and warm sake. Love it.

Haha, always look forward to this list but it makes me feel like a homebody.

You, my friend, drink deeply from the cup that is New York City!

I am attributing Broadway's record year in 2014 to Matthew Wells.

Anyway, glad that I got to share in some of the "The Hard Stuff" and other, less rollicking,
categories with you!
