Groundhog Day

Monday, February 2 is Groundhog Day.  The day that a large rat comes out of his hiding hole to give an unintelligent response as to what's in store for the near future*.  But this is more a comment on humanity than it is the rodent.  The Global Warming alarmists fervently swear that your failure to drive a Prius will cause untold weather disasters throughout Earth for the next hundred years.  Meanwhile, the Channel 8 Meteorologists can't even get the forecast for the coming weekend right on a regular basis.  In light of those two issues, maybe asking an over-sized squirrel for advice on the changing of the seasons isn't so ludicrous after all.

   *not to be confused with a Marshawn Lynch press conference

Groundhog Day is also a very underrated film starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell (who was on my official "list" for several years running).  If you haven't seen this flick, then you really should give it a shot.  I highly recommend it.  You'll even see today's cocktail featured at one point.

Fill a rocks glass with ice
Add sweet vermouth

Twist lemon over the glass


OK, I'm just kidding.  Don't really drink that abomination.  Our pal Bill will show you why at 0:31 - 

Want something remotely Groundhog related?  Then try this:

Trust me, it's MUCH better.  Not even Andie MacDowell is worth the former...
