The good stuff

I live for the weekend update: Do you ever feel like you could use a weekend after your weekend? That’s how I’m feeling right about now. Ours was so busy that I don’t really recall sitting down.

And to keep the fun going (and to free up our freezer) our friends got together this evening to have a little fish fry.

On Wednesday this week we are attending a private screening of Iowa Filmmaker Kristian Day’s movie “Capone’s Whiskey – The Story of Templeton Rye”. Templeton Rye is a whiskey made right here in Iowa.

From their site: “When Prohibition outlawed the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages in 1920, many enterprising residents of a small town in Iowa chose to become outlaws – producing a high-caliber and much sought-after whiskey known as Templeton Rye, or “The Good Stuff” to those in the know. Produced from the original Prohibition era recipe and aged in charred new oak barrels, Templeton Rye provides a smooth finish and a clean getaway.”

I’m not quite sure I’ll love the stuff straight, but I could be up for trying this version:

To-Do lists: I love the feeling of putting a check mark in a box.

    I would love to try that whiskey. I’m reading a book on prohibition now, and it’s such an interesting period. To read about not, live in. But God bless them for making such quality whiskey.

    • I’ve lived in Iowa all of my life and have never tried it, so I’m pretty excited about this tasting. The good stuff also plays a role in the HBO series Boardwalk Empire that takes place during prohibition – you should check it out.
