Do you ever feel stupid after the fact at the grocery store?

I once went to the store with nothing but (what I thought was) my debit card. It turned out to be my Metrocard. In case anyone is wondering, you cannot pay for groceries with a Metrocard, even if there's enough money on it.

Does anybody else miss chicken skin?

<Am I the only one who wonders where all that great juicy, crispy chicken skin has disappeared to?>

It hasn't disappeared. It's available at plenty of Japanese restaurants in Manhattan, like this one (yakitori page, second item from the top):

Or as part of a tasting menu (third item):

Or as a component in an entree (the tuna, in this case):

Can I do anything with a bottle of sweet tea flavored moonshine?

Thanks! I will consider setting some fruit on fire.

Experiment #2, from your idea of adding the stuff to a marinade: I subbed the moonshine for the white wine and the honey in this recipe, which I've made before and didn't like that much:

I still don't like it that much. But it wasn't worse!

Best options near Santos Party House (other than Chinese)

Forlini's, maybe. Old school Italian, very popular at lunch with people who either work at the courts or have to be there for some other reason. I haven't been there for dinner (and the last time I had lunch there was because I was on jury duty), but I like it.

I have no experience making either of those items, but I am very willing to try. Can you provide (or link to) a couple of recipes you trust? I'd also be up for trying to make bitters, if anyone can recommend a site where I can read up on that.

Experiment #1: The Barn Dance. Equal parts Meyer lemon juice and sweet tea moonshine, muddled basil. Not bad, would be better with seltzer (forgot to buy seltzer, unfortunately).

You are correct, see below. I tried all three flavors and quite liked "original," but that's not what was in my gift bag, so...

I don't eat meat or poultry, but I wonder if this idea has a seafood application, barbecued fish or something similar (minus the smoking, which I can't do in an apartment without inciting wrath).

I wish I had a smaller project to try it on. I don't think I have enough for a whole room. Also worried about ants - I imagine a sickly sweet floor would be very appealing to our six-legged non-friends.

I'm worried about karma. If I spurn free liquor, free liquor may cease to come my way.

I will try the deglazing, thanks. And I do have a friend who is not terribly discriminating about how he gets his hangovers. He might like it.

If you made a Long Island Ice Tea with this stuff, I think it would be very sweet. But maybe not, who knows.

Lack of potency is not the issue, most definitely. It's practically a hallucinogen.

Diluting it is an option, yes. Thanks.

Funny creamery name--Seriously good cheese

Thanks. I'll keep an eye out for it in Manhattan.

I've tried drinking it. That didn't go so well. I'm not a fan of super-sweet anything, and most definitely not super-sweet liquor. Any ideas? Some sort of dessert? Stain remover? Pest control?

NYT: What Kids Around the World Eat for Breakfast

Congee's bland and starchy. Whereas two of my favorite Western breakfasts are huevos rancheros and bagels & lox, neither of which is bland.

Maybe the website didn't load all the way. You can blame your old iPad. If you don't have an old iPad, you can blame my old iPad.

Ebola: Do you think it will change how we dine out?

Indeed. In fact, you're probably more likely to be struck by lightning while you're being shown to your table.

It's the third entree listed.
