    Anyone recommend a place San Jose or Santa Cruz the specialize in alloy rim repair and powder coat? Looking for a one stop place that can remove the tires, sandblast, paint and reinstall. Paint on the BMW wheels is peeling off in sheets

    That wheel may already have been repaired. BMW doesn’t paint, they usually powder coat.

    if it’s been repaired, you may not be able to repair it again.

    Wheel Techniques in Santa Clara. 408-496-6363.

    There’s another place, Brothers Wheel Repair also I n Santa Clara. 650-921-9763.

    I’ve used Wheel Techniques in the past. They’re pretty good.

    Anyone have any tips on getting Blanton’s for anywhere near retail in Sac? Aha

    Just found some at a Bourbon / Liquor store for $150 + tax and he wouldn’t budge.

    I appreciate that.

    I have some friends coming to town and was hoping to break open a bottle with them as a celebration. Just wasn’t hoping to pay over 2x msrp for it.

    No such luck.
    Last time I was in M&B off El Camino, they had John J Bowman Single Barrel which is the same mash bill as Blantons - but distilled in VA and sits at a higher proof (100 proof vs 93 proof). Lots of similar tasting notes as Blantons seeing that it's the same ingredients - but a little more flavor because of the higher proof. I always like sipping them back to back, and pick the Bowman over Blantons in a blind test.
    Might be worth a shot if you can't find any Blantons.

    Thanks for trying.

    It’s not so much an issue of finding Blanton’s, I found a store that had 2 bottles but I couldn’t justify the price lol

    Sometimes, you buy the bottle and know it's not your daily. I like Tincup or Stranahan's Diamond Peak for just that purpose. Nice whisky, easy on the wallet.

    It’s taco Tuesday. Now you never think of Potatoes in tacos. Except maybe at the border.

    Let me say that these are bomb. From Lupita’s.
