Local Caesars

There are so many local foods that excite me in Guelph.  Soon it’s time to harvest local Fiddleheads! Royal City Brewing Company released a perfectly lovely Berlinner Weisse  this week – “No Sleep Till Berlin” –  and of course the Farmers Market in Guelph gets me and my Coco up every Saturday morning at 6:30 to discover what’s new.

But as i prepare for summer i start thinking about Caesars – Canada’s version of ‘Merica’s Bloody Mary.

Dixon’s Distillery of Guelph makes a clever little vodka designed for the Caesar – their “Flaming Caesar Vodka”.   With hints of celery salt, chili heat, and garlic – it makes a great Caesar.  But hey, a picture says a thousand words – so here are 3.000 more that are easy to read.

Misinformed 

I really have lived my life under the assumption had I could drive a Jeep to South America – our only friendly neighbour to the south.

I’m wrong – according to google. Look here!
Google maps tells me it’s not possible.  And those google people are presumably smarter than me.

Tonight I’m drinking a lovely wine from Argentina, and I sadly am finding out that I can’t drive there to get more.  Nevermind the fact that I may be 189 hrs of driving – an estimation I made, but honestly I’m so thrown off by google right now that I’m unquestionably questioning anything that i thought i knew.

I can’t even be certain that I purchased this lovely Trapiche Syrah at the LCBO for under $9 because that seems as crazy as a Spanish speaking border guard telling me i can’t get to Argentina from here [or an ‘merican speaking border guard for that matter].
