Mr. Hipster says: “Don’t put beer in the freezer.”
The problem with buying beer in bulk at a grocery store in Manhattan is that it’s never cold. Sure, you don’t have to pay $8.99 for a six-pack of Amstel, but there’s the inconvenience of serving your guests warm swill. I guess one could avoid this problem by buying the beer a couple hours before serving it, but who has the organizational skills for that?
It seems like no matter how many times I try to remind myself to take the damn beers out of the freezer, I always miss some stragglers. It’s always amazing to me just how violently these things blow. I like to believe that it was the sheer force of the explosion that knocked the tater tots into the frozen fish sticks, and forced some sort of frozen beef/turkey/chicken thing leak all over the place.
