    Thats right you live in Lkwd you have that cheap liquor store there, lucky you….

    Makers Mark is cheaper than Basil, the cheapest I’ve bought Basil @ was 38 on sale.

    For the higher end (which I get my father for Y”T) I’ve gotten Bookers, 1792, Blantons, Gentleman Jack.

    Still havent been able to bring myself to break the bank on the Pappy Van Winkles.

    One middle-aged couple always brings wine, rugelach, and toys for the kids. The first time they came, the husband explained that the toys are meant to keep the kids busy so that the adults could talk.

    One guy who usually comes for one seuda each week doesn’t bring anything for Shabbos, but for Yom Tov he brings an expensive bottle of vodka and a cake.

    When girls come, they usually offer to prepare a dish.

    I don’t like when a guest brings flowers on his way to shul, sometimes after I bentched licht. I’d rather he didn’t bring anything.

    The nicest gifts we have received from guests were the book, “The 39 Avoth Melocha of Shabbos” by Rabbi Boruch Chait, and a Brochos Lotto game for the kids.

    I like to bring some produce from my garden, or fresh eggs from the chickens. In the early spring I bring forced daffodils or hyacinths or tulips that I planted int he fall and forced in the springtime.

    I keep getting invited back.

    in case anyone would like to invite us, the fresh chicken eggs are mighty tasty.

    Sacrilege – they sell cheaper bottles of pappy van winkle for about $60, not as good as the expensive one, but not bad at all. Also, they sell a Baron Hirsch cheaper bottle for about 30-32 bucks, which is excellent.

    I know (about the Pappys) but they have been out for about a year now, only the $240 bottle has been available.

    Sacrilege – that’s one of the many mailohs of living in lakewood… we can buy the cheaper pappy here… Seriously, I recently had Prichard’s Double barrel which is about 50-55 bucks & it was great, did you ever try it?

    Thats about the only thing 😛

    Is Prichard the one that has the name written in script and is in a square-ish bottle? If yes, I havent bought it but now that it has your haskama I’ll have to give it a try 😉

    Sacrilege – yup, that’s the one. It has my haskomah, although it doesn’t need it. I had a few shots of it at a kiddush recently. I also highly recomend Corner’s Creek – very decent bottle at a great price – usually in the low 20’s & very good taam.

    I never heard of Corners Creek. Although I keep trying to expand my fathers Bourbon repertoire given the chance he’ll always buy Woodford Reserve…

    I’m not trying to mess with you, its just extremely odd for a girl to be this well versed in whiskey and bourbon drinks, names prices what’s good what isnt….

    I think we’ve already established that I’m not “typical”

    Besides, this is all for the sole purpose of Kibbud Av 😉

    Sacrilege – your father has got to get past Woodford, I mean – it’s not bad, but there are so many other better bottles out there…

    Here in israel (where I live, at least) it’s not really done, I must’ve had at least 40 guests in the last year alone, but never did receive a gift, not that I expect one!

    And I HATE when ppl offer to make something, cuz I don’t know how to get out of it, but I REALLY prefer making, serving and eating my OWN food, (but maybe I am a little OTT like that, especially if I’ve never seen your kitchen!!!) I’m inviting YOU, be a guest!

    Girls who come for a meal sometimes bring a package of chocolate-covered something (which my daughter checks for a price tag), and it’s always appreciated (more when it’s not esrog).

    We have wonderful friends who happen to be our neighbors too. Every once in a while we will go there for a seudah. We don’t bring something every time we are there, but my friend makes amazing salads, so every so often I would buy her a gorgeous salad bowl. She appreciates it and that is my way of saying “thank you:)”.

    I heard that you are not allowed to give gifts on shabbat unless its for the purpose of beutifying the shabbat and making it more “kadosh”. Therefore what most people do is they bring a cake or a bottle of wine or some nice dish in honor of shabbat and the hosts then use it at the table. But here is my question, are you allowed to bring the family something that isnt food like a challah cover or a book? if you do, is the family forced to use it on shabbat according to halachah?

    if you are giving non-foods as a gift, give it before ??? so there’s no inyan of kinyan
