Blanketing opinions that I'll probably regret soon.

R.I.P. DCDrinks.blogspot.com

I started DCDrinks with my friend Derek back in November 2005. Derek had taken a job as a sommelier at the Best Restaurant in DC (Citronelle) and I had proved myself as the Best Home Bartender in DC, so our egos were raring to go. Plus, we honestly like to drink --- writing about it came second.

But as a rule, when one hasn't blogged in over a month, the blog is dead. So we've declared its death with one beautiful line from the least annoying French philosopher, Guy Debord:

"I have written much less than most people who write; but I have drunk much more than most people who drink." - Guy Debord

God DAMN DCDrinks to HELL. May it never come back. We started the blogging-about-drinking trend in '05 (hey, we have no false modesty here) and we can't stop the monster now ...

Also, as an aside to this, I'd like to say that writing about blogging is annoying as fuck and I will never do it again. God damn all those who do it regularly.
Comments:
This is a classy sendoff. Most people just let their blogs wither away unnoticed; I like that you've announced its demise in an official capacity.

So, what's next?
 
I would have stopped by that drinking blog a few more times if it had been written maybe ten years ago, when I still drank a good bit. With the kids, I'm lucky to get a glass of wine or a beer down before I want to pull the covers up and go to sleep.
