Three months exactly after I move out of Austin, I get word that you can now buy Nochebuena beer at HEB. Go stock up, friends!
Just as my 2010 stock was depleted, I received the 2011 shipment (thank you, parents). As far as I know, my house is the only household in Austin with a uninterrupted supply of Noche Buena beer since 2002. Feel free to stop by for a cold one!
I should have posted this back in late December or early January…
My dad, the cool and considerate parent that he is, was able to score one of only three thousand Limited Edition Bohemia Bock released late last year (not an easy feat). It comes in a beautifully designed champagne-like bottle and is packaged in a box. He got it for me through his college friend Jorge Luis Ramos, who offered to gift me the bottle when my dad told him that he keeps bringing me cases of the beers I like yet can’t be bought in the U.S. whenever he drives into Austin. A big public thank you.
More after the break…
As you can see in the photo, my parents and Moi were in town last weekend for Arturito and Debbie’s wedding. I will post something about that sometime in the future.
Above: two boxes of Noche Buena beer (2008 edition), one box of Carta Blanca Edición Especial (which came out recently and I’ve never tried) and one bottle of Tequila Herradura Reposado. My parents think, apparently, that this is the only way to get my friends to hang out with me.
Four years and counting… (see previous New Year entries: 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006).The MKX Staff® wishes all its readers a Happy New Year, even better than 2006. May all your wishes come true.Personally, I had quite an interesting New Year’s evening. Went to five different parties through the night, and then had to go take care of something that involved policemen, fights, lawyers and jails (nothing too serious, don’t worry). I finally got home and went to sleep around 11:00 AM. Not a night that will be forgotten soon, that’s for sure.I have selected a very appropriate photo to grace this post: Mr. Aaron Kirsch and Moishele sent me two boxes of Special Edition 2007 Nochebuena and Casta beer. Andres was kind of enough to bring them to Austin.
Tomorrow morning I’m driving to Mexico for thanksgiving (no turkey – lots of tacos).
Not only do I get to spend 4 days over there, I also get to go to the stadium to see Monterrey VS Pachuca (quarter final) on Thursday and Gustavo Cerati in concert on Saturday.
Also, it’s almost that time of the year again: the hollidays. Those it mean I get into the whole christmas spirit thing? No. It means I need to stack up on the Nochebuena beer again. It has to last for a year!
