I Have Made Fire!

The inner caveman in me spoke out when I added Have a bon fire on the beach to the list. Actually, it was because of a scene from Police Academy which included the notorious Blue Oyster Bar… Here is the video incase you needed reminding.

In almost the exact fashion as our boys in blue from police academy, my bonfire went just about the same way minus, the naked women, saxophone, crowd of people and being that Kit and I were in Montauk, the black guy. Minus all those things, it was exactly the same.

Danny’s Guide to a successful Beach Bonfire… The Guide.

Step 1) Pick a beach

Step 2) Gather all materials needed for creating fire. Most survival experts say get a couple of stones, or a bow made of wood and tinder to light. I say, hogwash. Duraflame and a lighter. Added benefit to the Duraflame, you can purchase one that imitates the sound of real wood burning, or if you are feeling artistic or autistic they also have a special log that emits festive colors while burning.

Step 3) Light it up, Drink it up and enjoy.

A bottle of the good stuff

Drink a bottle of Shiraz

Pretty straight forward with this item. After reading cigar review after cigar review from an Australian who paired almost every fine Cuban cigar he had with an expensive bottle of Shiraz, I wanted a piece of the good life. My plan was to buy myself an expensive bottle and enjoy it with a cigar, but after being gifted a bottle from a co-worker as a goodbye gift, I decided that Christmas dinner with Kit’s family was just as good as any time to try it.

It was yummy. So, yummy in fact I finished about 6 glasses on my own. All within about 2 hours. Needless to say ¬†, I was feelin’ nice. Oh so nice.

This last picture shows my glass on the right compared to Kits’. She apparently thought that I had drunk¬†enough wine for the night and that I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between Shiraz and water with red food coloring. Little does she know, that I have a very sophisticated palate, and no matter how good the food coloring did indeed taste, it still did not hold up to my very discerning taste buds.
