This mural faces a general store along a corner of the Dayton Town Square. In the top corner of the ad is the word DRINK and in the bottom right corner is a coke bottle on a yellow circle.

Above the Coke Mural is an ad for Mansfields Coffee Shoppe. A block away is a place called Mansfield’s Diner, which I will assume is the same place.

Question by Liz J: I have a few unopened bottles of good quality chianti vintage 1975. Are they still drinkable?
I inherited some wine from my grandfathers wine cellar. He bought a lot of wine about 20 years ago and then found out that he couldn’t drink it due to health reasons. He kept it stored in the basement at a cool temperature. He had a lot of different kinds of wine and many different brands so I am not going to list all of them here. I was just curious weather or not wine that old is still drinkable. Thanks a lot.

Answer by andreaqi
It could be. Chianti can last quite long if preserved in the right way. If you find bottles of Rosso di Montalcino, Brunello di Montalcino, Barolo, with DOC or DOCG mark you have found a treasury. Each bottle can be valued hundreds of USD.
I.e. a standard Barolo or Brunello of 1975 has a price between 100 and 300-400 USD per bottle and more (taxes and transportation excluded, c/o the owner, wholesale price).
Conditions to believe it will be good are linked to the way the wine was preserved. If wines were not exposed to light too long, not to temperature shock and the basement was cool but not freezing, there is a good chance, if bottles were kept horizontally , the plug is a cork plug, is not apparently damaged… well you have a good chance.
Wine should be open several hours before drinking it: for wines so old, I suggest at least 3 to 4 hours before and to take them out of the bottle and into a decanter, paying attention to do not pick up the residues on the bottom of the bottle. At this point you may examine the colour against a natural light. If the colour is brownish on the sides it is possible your wine has become more of a liquor (a kind of Marsala or Port). Well, you have just to try, but pay attention to do not destroy rare bottles.
White wines have usually a much shorter life once in bottle

Having a boring day at the true blood on dvd or at uni, daydreaming about which bars or nightclubs you will be heading to this weekend? If so here is a few bar and nightclub jokes to break up the mediocrity of the true blood dvd boxset.

A man walks into a bar and asks the true blood season 4 dvd for 5 double shots. The bartender, a little surprised lines up the glasses and pours them out, assuming his mates are just round the corner. The man then, calm as Desperate Housewives season 1-6 DVD boxset, knocks each shot back one after the other. The bartenders, amazed by this feat of drinking turns to the man and goes “Desperate Housewives dvd boxset’s a big effort.” The man replies “you would drink quickly too if you had what I’ve got.” Curiously the bartender asks “what have you got new season of Desperate Housewives” to which the man replies “no money.”

A neutron walks into a bar and orders a drink and asks the bartender how much? The bartender replies “buy Desperate Housewives season 6”

A man, after having 27 drinks at a nightclub decides to head home, grabs his car keys and heads to the northern exposure. Struggling to walk, he finally gets to his car, takes him 3 goes to get the keys into the ignition, reverses into the car park wall and drives straight through the northern exposure dvd. Realising his wife is at home waiting for him, a decides to drive as fast as possible, swerving across the road erratically. A police car see’s this and pulls him northern exposure dvd set. The copper asks the man “mate do you know how fast you were going?” The man replies “How the fuck would I know, I’ve just had 27 drinks.”

A rabbi, a sheik and a priest all walk into a northern exposure dvd boxset together holding hands singing “hari-krishna.” The bartender says to them “what is this some kind of bad Northern Exposure Seasons 1-6 DVD Boxset ?”

A penguin walks into a bar and with a sense of urgency asks the bar man “sir have you seen my brother, he’s missing and I can’t find him” to which the dvd northern exposure man replies “what does he look like?”

A man walks into a bar, and furiously yells ”all bouncer’s are northern exposure seasons!!!” A man at the end of the bar stands up, slams his drink on the bar and yells “you better fucking take that back.” Shocked, the man says “why, are you a bouncer?” to which he replies “no… I’m an northern exposure set.”

A cop is staking out a bar for drunk drivers. At closing time, he sees a guy stumble out of the bar, trip on the cheap northern exposure DVD, and fumble for his keys for five minutes. Meanwhile, everybody else leaves the bar and drives off. When he finally pulls away, the cop is waiting for him, pulls him over, and gives him a buy true blood season 3 test. The test shows he has a blood alcohol level of 0.0. The cop says, How is this possible? The guy says “I’m the designated Desperate Housewives season 1-6 DVD boxset”
