Having a second date with a new friend. She's making me dinner. Should I bring some alcohol to reduce the awkwardness?


You know what she's making? Pairing a nice bottle of wine will do wonders.

I'd probably go with a cab-sauv, shiraz or perhaps a malbec. Try and find something that complements spicy food.

She's making chilli.

Pairing Chili with Beer
Chili is one of those dishes where everyone has their own secret recipe. Usually these secret recipes include more hot peppers than should legally be allowed in one pot but there are plenty of ways that people enjoy chili. With such a variable dish one needs a flexible beer that can handle the heat, meat, beans, spices and whatever else people decide to throw on top like cheese, crackers or, in the case of some very peculiar pockets of the US, spaghetti. That beer is Vienna lager. The style may seem a little obscure but it's really not. Austrian brewers moved to Mexico in the 1800's and introduced their amber lager where it remains popular. Today it is sold under such brands as Negra Modelo and Dos Equis Amber throughout Mexico and the US. The sweet, caramelly beer is an excellent foil for dishes with a lot of heat making the style popular in Tex-mex restaurants. In the case of this chili the bright apple notes in the beer play nicely against the earthy notes of the beans and cumin spicing.

Pairing Chili with Cocktails
Chili is a very hearty meal and there's a lot going on in it so it is best to do the exact opposite with cocktails. Simple mixed drinks that are light in flavor, tall and refreshing make the best match with chili, do not compete with the complexity of the food, and help you wash it down - which is certainly necessary if you enjoy the spicier adaptation. Fitting drinks include the ever-refreshing Pimm's Cup, the whiskey-based Presbyterian and, if you do opt for those chiles, the Paloma with it's tequila base and soothing grapefruit soda. My personal tastes typically run to beer and it's usually a Black and Blue.

Pairing Chili with Wine
There are plenty of wine pairing options for chili, especially if you prefer red wines. For the red wine lovers, I'd suggest shooting for a red wine that strikes a good balance between its acidity and tannin content. Consider an Argentinian Malbec, a Shiraz, a Tempranillo or select Cabernet Sauvignons. These specific red wine varietals will be able to handle the meat, tomatoes and bit of traditional chili spice (cumin, chiles, etc.). The white wine fan would do well with an off-dry German or Alsace Riesling or even a sparkling wine like Cava - where the bubbles can help cut the spice. Finally, a dry Rose would be a very viable chili pairing option, especially if you don't want to go head on with a red, and aren't overly prone to consider white wines as chili contenders.

This is a very good and cheap Malbec if you're interested. Now it's not the "be all end all" but it's imminently drinkable and if I recall is only around the $12 mark. It's my wife and my "go to" wine for tasty but affordable casual drinking...and we're part time wine snobs.

If you and your "friend" have less sophisticated palates, it should do quite nicely.

poke a hole in the condom? :bigblush:

seriously though, don't do that.

Discuss it, that's a major life issue, if the one you are with does not want a child, find out if it's a "right now" thing, or an "ever" thing. if it's an "ever" thing, that's a major issue, and you may need to move on. it's not fair to anyone involved to stay in the relationship if your long term goals do not synch up.

Get your tubes tied/a vascectomy(whichever applies) without telling them and enjoy the bareback ride. :emot-parrot:

Yes, Yes I do. you gotta keep the faith.

Thanks for the suggestions, I went with the tequilla and sparking grapefruit juice. It went very well.

Also congrats on the baby.

Anyways, one more question. We both have our own children so obviously we have to take things very slow. But would that make her think I'm being aloof or cafeful?

she SHOULD understand that, but you should let her know that you are into her through flirting and whatnot, though I'm just the tequila already helped with that.

tequila AND grapefruit juice.

If ForMyHunny and myself started to beef, would you be my tag-team partner in my triumphant return?

absolutely! we could wear matching outfits and then halfway through the match we could go under the mat and grab our matching luchador masks, so the ref wouldn't be able to tell who was who and then when he wasn't looking we could switch places and then the refreshed one could get the pin, easily.

It's FOOLPROOF!

what type of criminal syndicate are we talking about here? and will we be high enough up and insulated enough to not actually have to do anything or make any orders, merely nod and provide ambiguous statements whilst our henchmen carry out the "tasks"?
