Where's Vinnie?

He's out celebrating the most important national holiday evah!

Today is a great day for freedom. On this day in 1933, the 21st Amendment was ratified, thus repealing Prohibition. My former colleague Brandon Arnold wrote about it a few years ago:

The website urges celebrations of the “return to the rich traditions of craft fermentation and distillation, the legitimacy of the American bartender as a contributor to the culinary arts, and the responsible enjoyment of alcohol as a sacred social custom.” It’s easy! You don’t have to hold a party. Just go to a bar or liquor store and have a drink.

I also have five gallons of an old bootleg wine recipe that is bubbling away. ETA Januaryish.

Eat drink and and be merry all ya Jawas.
