No, that's not a distillation of my life's goal. It is, however, a hint of my goal for this particular evening, as I'm going to be one of the "super judges" for Beacon Bar and Grill's second annual "Best Martini in D.C." contest. I was a judge last year as well and they've invited me back, so apparently I didn't get too out of control. Luckily, a judge just has to taste and sample, rather than completely quaff, every entry, so I should be able to finish with my wits intact.
Naturally, I'll be twittering and otherwise live-blogging the contest. If you're interested in sampling the wares yourself join us at Beacon from 6 to 8 p.m. (at the corner of 17th St. and Rhode Island Ave. NW) -- $20 makes you a taster judge so you can try to overrule my finicky tastebuds. Not a bad deal for a great contest.
See you there!
