    Portable mini-bar

    I came up with a good idea on my last trip and think I should share it with you all. A standard mohagany cigar box will hold exactly 9 mini-bottles of various liqour. JBeam,Seagrams size bottles. The mini bottle of Jager kinda messed up the equation. A neat way to keep them organized with class. Pinky up!

    roughing it

    What's with the garnish fork? Isn't that taking up space that could be used for consumables?

    When he pulled that mini bar out during the solstace ride, it was truly an awesome sight to behold. Disposable income can be a wonderful thing!

    Is it a BMW thing?

    Traveling with your liquor, I mean?

    I guess I'm just a little too "blue collar". When I get to where I want to be for the night, I find the local liquor store, buy a 12 pack, and bring it back to where I'm staying!

    See, I missed out on meeting you at Spokane so I could have seen this for myself.
    No wonder you have luggage/packing problems!

    Most of the reason I carry it is cause I can't always find the vodka I want in some of the corner markets. Also I do purchase reinforcements once I am there.

    Think of it as traveling with an air pump. Yes you can usually find an air pump but that one time you can't you'll be happy you have it.

    And the reason I had trouble packing I realized - I packed tooooooo many pairs of jeans.

    I purchased the set at Bed Bath and Beyond, however a quick check of their website did not reveal them. The set looks like this:
