The same night I went out with the ladies, my husband took the boys out for their bachelor party night. His plan was to take the boys to a local pub that has a decent Belgium beer list, then come back to the house for cigars and fire pit time!
They headed down to Ale Mary’s in Fells Point, Baltimore.
In his words:
“Two of us got burgers. The burgers were great! I had to wipe the drool off of Ryan and Corey’s mouths. The first round of drinks were really good. Bachelor boy, Marc got the La Chouffe, it was spot on! It is his favorite beer. It is a clean Belgium beer that has a hint of coriander and lemon. The second round of beers was a bit disappointing. Marc ordered the Unibroue Ephemere Ale feeling adventurous and wanting to try something new. It was not clearly labeled that it was a girlie chick apple beer. I said something to the bartender and she shrugged her shoulders and walked away. Needless to say the beer went unfinished and left on the table. There was no where else to go for our third round then straight to the Brewer’s Art Resurrection Ale. The second round was redeemed! I was disappointed by the selection and the response we got from the bartender. But, not to let the evening be tainted, we headed home for cigars, fire pit and….scotch!”
So, all was not wasted and the night redeemed by Resurrection and my husband’s second review:
“After reading about Sheep Dip Scotch in Jamie Oliver’s premiere magazine, I have been searching high and low for the bottle. I found it a week before the bachelor party and saved it for the special occasion. It was not the best scotch I’ve had in the world (my current fav is Aberlour 16 year, Highland Single Malt Scotch), but it was unique because it is a blend of 16 single malt scotches. It was a bit fiery with no defining characteristics. Bachelor boy loved it! That’s all that mattered. The cigar bachelor boy had was a Rocky Patel anniversary edition. Supreme was the word that kept rolling off Marc’s tongue. Marc is a budding cigar aficionado and has quite refined taste buds.”
Overall the evening was a success! Marc was given “wise words of wisdom” on how to keep a wife happy. In Devon’s words, “Yes, dear” covers all the bases!
