pandaHi there, I’m Matthew. I’m two parts blogger, one part drinker and one part your new friend. Drinking in America has been kind enough to allow me to be a guest here on their site and post my musings from time to time. Hope you enjoy. Drink up!

Now that introductions are over… Wow, what a Halloween!

Drinking in costume is great. It’s like wearing a disguise all night long! You can get away with anything. I should do it more often.

So we were playing a game all night called “Funniest costumes seen making out.” The best we saw was Shaggy and Scooby Doo. Pretty awesome. You see any good ones?

I also had the pleasure of imbibing a delicious new cocktail. Being pumpkin season and all, its flavors seem to be popping up all over the place, but I had yet to experience anything made with a pumpkin spice liqueur until now. I had a Smashing Pumpkin Martini. And I must say: pretty darn good. So it’s a good thing fall isn’t done yet, ‘cause I plan on mixing this one up for myself. Word.

Anyone else been drinking pumpkins? Any good costume stories?
