When I was young around 19-21 I used to love champagne with pot. The only drug I ever did. Now that I am older, I really really appreciate the champagne without the pot. I think the dumbest thing I ever did was smoke pot.
Champagne is a glorious drunk. I love it.
Best champagne drunk was New Years Eve of 1999-2000. I spent it at the Signature Room on the ninty-fifth floor of the Hancock Tower in Chicago. 95 floors in a beautiful dining room with excellent food wine and champagne.
HUNG OVER like a bad I don't know what the next morning. It had to do with altitude. Fuck what a hangover. But, it'll be a thousand years before one sees the turn of a millenium from the 95th floor of the Hancock and it'll probably be gone by then. I think those other couple hundred of celebrators, my kids, and I were very fortunate. It was more than the chance of a lifetime, it was the opportunity of many lifetimes and when my sons are Grandfathers they will be telling their Grandchildren about it.

It has long been recognized that the problems with alcohol relate not to the use of a bad thing, but to the abuse of a good thing. - Abraham Lincoln
