Coming Soon…


I think I got to almost everything that was requested from my long list last month. Of the whisky reviews I posted, the most popular were those of the Four Roses Al Young and the Kilkerran 8 CS. My review of the Laphroaig Cairdeas 2017 was also read a lot yet again. However, the most popular posts, by far, were those of two Twin Cities restaurants: Babani’s and Cheng Heng. It appears that someone is linking to my Twin Cities restaurant reviews on Facebook but because of how Facebook links work it’s not possible for me to see where on Facebook that traffic is coming from (the same is true of Twitter). If you are one of the people who has come here from a link on Facebook not posted by me I’d really appreciate finding out where that link was posted and by whom.

In the meantime, here is the long list of potential reviews for February. If anything catches your eye, feel free to request promotion to the short list in the comments.

In addition, I have a bunch of rum and brandy samples I might randomly throw into the mix.

Food-wise, I have a handful of restaurant reviews left to come from our trip to Los Angeles in December. Twin Cities reviews will resume shortly thereafter. If anyone from the Twin Cities is reading along and has recommendations for non-fine dining places that I should get to, please let me know as well.
