I had forgotten about Firestone's Velvet Merkin, as my brother and I spent a good majority of last Christmas making jokes about each others' velvet merkin.
Heh heh ha heh heh. He said, "Merkin".
I found a new beer spot (which is tucked in a corner, next to the tiny, but amazeballz, whiskey section, which is itself tucked in a corner of this ultra fancy, high-end wine shop here in the Bay Area). It's the only place I can find Pliny's at the retail level (and even then it's hit or miss). I'm gonna try to hit it up this week and I'll report back if I find anything interesting.
If they've got the Elder or the Younger, I'd be grateful to know how they're packaged and what they ask for them.
