    So, us glassware whores really get caught up in our stupid glasses. Just filling a glassware cabinet over the weekend for the first time, I was bound to lose a friend. This one is sad as I had actually never broken a glass of my own and I had never even used this guy. See below:

    Making matters worse, this was a gift from a trading partner and friend, xpimptastikx. Rest in piece homo-erotic Jester King/Praire "Un" Natural Union glass...

    I figured that we could start a thread for the lost soldiers here, in the hopes of reaching some closure for our fallen brethren amidst our fellow glass hoarders.

    I smashed a Dogfish IPA glass at Goodwill today while I was looking through their LP records. No big loss, but I was kinda bummed since I've been wanted to try one of those glasses for a while now.

    Didnt take any pics but I broke a DFH spiegelau ipa glass last night. It was sitting beside the sink for a few days because I loath cleaning it. That dildo shape plus my freakish larger than necessary hands always makes for a bad time. I tried to force 2 fingers and a wash cloth into her and I guess I pushed too hard because it snapped and 2 large chunks broke off. All things considered, im fucking lucky I didnt cut myself.

    I wasnt mad, in fact it gave me a bit of pleasure knowing thats 1 less stupid shaped glass I dont need to worry about cleaning (or not cleaning and sitting out.)

    A really sad day for me. I know, I know. Mikkeller is crappy. They just happen to hold a special place in my heart, especially the SF Bar. ISO in the trading thread coming soon.
