The question before you is should this club allow women members and if so on what grounds, as footstools perhaps? Also smoking, I suggest we make this a virtual smoking room and lets see the B****y…Continue

What with this establishment being one of universal appeal (and location, being on The Webs), it is with some pleasure that I direct you to a source of teas and other items that may not be immediately available through this Club, a MOST useful site that directs you to tea rooms and tea suppliers in the USA:

We were directed to it by Sarah and Brad, the owners of FANCY THAT, a tea room in Brockton MA.  Lovely people, nice to chat with.

I have been directed to a recipe for Sazeracs, and here it is:

I recommend the other videos they have produced.

The expedition to Cider Day was a success, to say the least.  Tasted 6 or 7 home-made ciders and ice wines at the morning Workshop, and on the way into the Workshop was 'ambushed' by no less than three sets of folks giving away samples....walking was not a problem, as I paced myself.
On the way out of the Workshop, the usual 'Here, taste this' ambushes on the way to the parking areas...another 4 or 5 tastings, including one award winner.
Then went to a 2-1/2 hour long Salon with 40+ cideries/wineries represented, each with 2-7 different ciders, scrumpies, common ciders, ice ciders, fortified ciders....EGAD!
Let's see....42 cideries, times 4 ciders each = Good Lord protect us all.
Thank the Gods that they had dump pails, and I only went after the sweeter types, a mere 30 or so.
Cideries from England, New Zealand, Spain, France, Washington State, VA, MI, CT, MA, Indiana, VT, NH, Oregon, Wisconsin, Minnesota...and so on.
This is the LARGEST collection of ciders on display in the world as far as I know...and started because two different people walked out of a Washington State spiel on 'eating' apples (nothing on cider when they went for this) 19 years ago; they met in the parking lot and thus....

My personal favorite was meeting the couple that show heirloom apples, they have over 100 varieties on the farm.
My personal favorite of these is 'DECIO', know to have been cultivated from Roman times...yes, the earliest known cultivated apple, still grown after 2000+ years.

waes hael, gentleman. 'tis a fine thing to find a group of gentlemen of such discerning tastes. if you don't mind my interjecting my opinions concerning topic, only women with magnificent displays of facial hair or a taste for fine cigars, whisky, and elegant horseless carriages should be allowed. secundus, as Cape Breton Whiskey is crafted in Nova Scotia, i would highly recommend it. thirdly, by all means, it is a fine thing to introduce the lower quality 'palettes' to the finer things. and finally, a steampunk account of sexual perversions and depravity... not sure if i should be curious enough to look or... forget it.

For the next three minutes, at least.

Yours in service, Mortimer Stern
