The Lazy Man’s 2012 Year In Review…

Since 2012 is over, now is probably the time to do a “year in review” post that contains a Top 5 or Top 10 list of all the great Craft Beer, Whisky, and other fine libations that we experienced throughout the past 12 months. We could also list some of the great events that we were lucky enough to attend this past year. But since I’m feeling lazy, and am a bit groggy from last night’s festivities as we said goodbye to 2012 in proper “It’s just the booze dancing…” fashion (Mr. and Mrs. Limpd are fabulous hosts!), i.e. lots of food, lots of beer, and a plethora of fine whisky, I will instead take advantage of’s generosity and share our 2012 Annual Report. As you will soon see, we’ve been quite prolific over the past 12 months. Here’s hoping that 2013 is even better!

The “It’s just the booze dancing…” crew wishes all of you a very Happy New Year! Thank you for all your support, and we look forward to sharing more of our experiences with you over the next 12 months and beyond. Cheers to all of you!

And now for the recap…

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 140,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

  1. Congrats! Some think they can dance. Some think So You Think You Can Dance. None Boozedance like Don Huevos and the Hidden Squid! A brief perusal of your stats reveals that I have been a supreme slacker in the way of the commentary. I must consider adjustments to my already overburdened and oft broken list of new years resolutions.

    Nice work. And you did it all without having to rely on too many Mandy Patinkin references or Flans of Unusual Size or Celebrity Calves.



    • Though we may not have referenced The Great Patinkin directly, I am positive that there were several references made to The Princess Bride throughout the year.

      Grazie for the comment and Happy New Year! Mazeltov!


  2. I’m glad WordPress can’t provide a rundown on the total intake of beer and whiskies. That might be a little to shocking to see in real numbers. Suffice it to say, that 2012 was another enjoyable year of blogging and camaraderie and I look forward to continuing our adventure in libations in 2013. Whisky Live in NYC? Just saying…


    • I hear ya! What we post on the blog represents just a fraction of the beer and whisky that we tried in 2012. And based upon what we have in the review queue for the next couple weeks, I’d say 2013 is going to be another memorable and noteworthy year.

      Whisky Live NYC? Count me in!


      • YES!!!! Whisky Live NYC is a MUST!!! I’d be sad if we don’t all finally get to meet in person in 2013! Keep up the enjoyable, enthusiastic, entertaining & educational work you all are doing here! I love stopping by your blog to see what’s been going on with the BoozeDancing crew. Nice stats for 2012, a funny perspective indeed! Cheers – WW


      • Yo WW!

        I second that YES! As you already know, I am DYING to get to Whisky Live NYC! I thought last year was a lock, but work and other things conspired against me. I will put a hold on the date and keep my fingers crossed!

        Thanks for all your support in 2012! Between the whisky connections, our interview on your blog, and all of the other interactions we had, you definitely played a HUGE roll in all the fun and hijinks. Let’s keep the ball rolling!

        Cheers! and Happy New Year!



  3. 140,000 Views? I’ll check the outbound internet stats with my work IT department. I am pretty sure that I am responsible for at least 50,000 views last year …. I get board at work.
