The first course should be something classic, not too ambitious, not too heavy, but of substantial quality:

AU Draped Bust cent + Smoked Salmon + Pinot Blanc

Where do we go next image

Update: The ANS has announced an event "Wine and Coins" on December 17, 2017. The event is listed in the latest ANS Magazine.

    I prefer peace+lamb+scotch. But it has to be in that order. If I go otherwise it ends up like this:

    Scotch: coin: scotch: pizza slice: scotch: coin: coin: coin: posting: coin: regret next morning.

    If you have holey coins, you may as well go with White Castle's holey burgers.

    I received a PM asking what is hot flip, so...

    Flip is a blend of beer, raw eggs, and molasses, usually heated with a fire iron.

    18th Century Flip Recipe:

    • 3 eggs
    • 3 teaspoons sugar
    • 1 jigger rum
    • 1 jigger brandy
    • 1 red-hot flip iron or poker heated in fireplace
    • tall, all-pewter mug
    • 12-16 ounces of beer

    1. In a quart mug break three eggs
    2. Add three teaspoons sugar and stir well
    3. Add in the jigger of rum and the jigger of brandy, beating meanwhile.
    4. Fill remaining volume of mug with beer
    5. Insert red-hot iron until it hisses and foams.
    6. The drink will become only warm.

    Flips were originally drunk aboard English ships where mixtures of rum, sugar, and eggs were heated with red-hot iron to create froth ("flipping").

    Why would you buy off of the dollar menu and then buy a large Coke? Be really cheap like me ,get water and then pour one from the 2 liter when you get home. image

    << <i>If you have holey coins, you may as well go with White Castle's holey burgers. >>

    I would, but we don't have White Castle's down here in Dixie- at least not in this part of Georgia. I reckon they're all up there in Yankeeland.

    'Round here it's Krystal, which is basically the same thing. Little bitty square burgers. Tastly little greasebombs they are, but when we moved out here and I found a Krystals nearby, at the interstate, I OD-ed a couple of times and almost killed my taste for them (not to mention myself). It's only now gettin' round to where I can think about Krystal burgers again.

    (Word to the wise- if a little voice tells you to buy a 24-pack of Krystals or White Castles and down them all in the space of three or four hours, don't listen to it- that little voice is not your friend.)

    Oh yeah-

    How 'bout love token Seated dime, ham and cheese omelet at Waffle House with double order hashbrowns (scattered-smothered-covered-chunked, thankyou), and ice tea.

    There's the actual menu from the first time I met savoyspecial in person.

    Will it be held at the Longacre Estate, in accordance with my suggestion 6 years ago?

    A nice Draped Bust half dime (or two), steamed clams and lobster, with corn on the cob, done in a fire pit on the beach (I am from Maine, after all), and although I love good dry red wines, I would have to have plenty of Sam Adams Boston Lager to go with the lobster.

    If it must be wine, make mine very sweet pinkish or white plonk diluted by ice and water, with inexpensive cheese (no pepper cheese) and Ritz crackers, the last three or four issues of "Coin News" (Token Publishing, UK), and 1960s/1970s/1980s pop and folk music from You Tube... lots of plonk and ice...

    • A common date XF-AU Seated coin of any denomination, with an interesting die crack, or doubling, or whatever, that you don't have the book, documentation, or resource to identify
    • A ham sandwich, with chips, and a pickle
    • A bottle of Bud

    That's how I started, and still how I look at coin collecting. You can have your wine. ;)

    WOW! I would sub out more lobster for the clams, and to keep with the thread title, sub out a nice red wine for the Sam Adams, otherwise this is just about perfect!

    And for MrHalfDime, although not draped bust, I would include the two half dimes as a 1792 and an 1802.

    Since we are letting our imaginations run wild, why not?! But you may be missing a real treat by omitting the steamed clams. It's not a real lobster bake without clams.

    Man...I am getting hungry! There's few things better than fresh steamed clams.
    I'm with you on the corn too...and the Sam....dump the wine in the sand...I can't abide it!
