Unfortunately didn't get any pictures due to the fact that we also polished off a few growlers and far too many "painkillers" (reminds me of my time working in the British Virgin Islands...)
But here's the kicker- I must have done something to earn some major good karma, because while dodging downpours this afternoon on a run, I ran into this little guy sitting on the curb next to a bunch of garbage:
I assumed it must have some serious fatal flaw for someone to be pitching it, but I came back with my truck after my run, and nope, it was perfect. Cleaned it up and it looks like it has only been used a few times.
From 0 to 2 new webers in one week, I'd say that's a good week.
Congrats on the Weber score. You will love them for years to come. However, I'm interested in the PainKillers. Do you have a recipe that you can share? There is a bar at Megan's Bay on St. Thomas that makes those and they are fantastic and sneaky good. Not too sweet. Have found very few bartenders that no how to make them and if they do, they are sickeningly sweet. Any ideas?
