I'm a man.
I *love* to cook.
Here is what an ideal 'mans kitchen' should have:
- Cork wood flooring.
- Enormous counter space.
- Live seafood tanks to hold fish, lobster and other fresh aqua meals.
- Huge double stainless sinks with disposals.
- Huge easy access spaces for *giant* pots/pans.
- Greenhouse Herb garden. Hothouse vegetable garden.
- Indoor Charcoal Grill. Might have some setbacks/logistical issues for fan to get smoke out efficiently and quietly.
- Soaking tank to soak wood planks/chips for smoking or flavoring.
- Big hibachi grill surface.
- Beer ON TAP.
- Beer mug froster.
- Wine fridge and liquor bar.
- Double ovens that are not part of the stove.
- Heat resistant counter space so I can throw a flaming hot pan down anywhere.
- Giant medieval iron pronged gas stoves. None of those minimalist flat hot top things. They are crap. Gas only.
- Big, thick carving block and perhaps a guillotine for chickens. I am not kidding.
- No microwave. I hate those things and never use them.
- Walk in meat cooler (how could you leave this one out?)
- Amazing sound system with waterproof/washable remote control.
- Easy load dish washer that can take anything I put in.
- At least 2 or 3 sexy female sous chefs.
- Faucets that have foot controls.

Thanks for the post and the info!
Sep 7th 2007 11:49AM Wow. I normally wouldn't go for something so flashy, but that is a beautiful watch.

Here is my list in the order of places I've lived since 2000.
Boston - They all died out back in 2002 and I left in 2003 (coincidence?). Used to love Trios and Oscars in the leather district and Cigar Masters on Newbury. You can't even smoke cigars anywhere in Boston these days, can you? I suppose upstairs at Vox Populi is decent as well.
Raleigh - 42nd Street Oyster Bar, Hibernian Pub, Havana's.
London - There so many, But my all time favorite bar in the world is The Holly Bush in Hampstead.
Bangkok - My favorites are the bar at the Eugenia, The Dimplomat in the Conrad Hotel, Vertigo or Sirocco when friends are in town.
Oct 22nd 2006 2:10AM Question for all you ancient whiskey drinkers out there: I know that really, really old wine is often more or less undrinkable...but what are the odds of this Glenavon still being good to drink? I am curious because I have seen 100 year old bottles of whiskey available (behind locked glass, never tasted it), but do all whiskeys continue to stay good and possibly improve with age? What is the age limit and how do you need to care for it?
Aug 5th 2006 1:24AM CK Dexter-Haven -- *exactly* what I was thinking myself.
Aug 5th 2006 1:17AM This brand is very popular at the clubs here in Bangkok.
I try to guage all the 'common' tequilas against Patron, as that is what I consider the benchmark in the mass-produced category.
The XXX silver is not nearly as good as Patron silver. I will try their Reposado if I see it around but I wont expect anything mindblowing from any brand called 'XXX'.
