Actually we drink the clear stuff, but it is nasty enough that I have never wanted to try anything that even shares the name. Does black Sambuca taste like licorice too?

Welcome to the DDC... head on over to the main thread and jump into the off topic madness that is always going on over there.

Yes, it tastes like licorice, but it's a lot smoother than the clear stuff. I have friends that drink the clear stuff like it's going out of style. It's not nearly as good (to me, anyway) as the black. I've been looking for a brand called Opal Nera, but it's not sold anywhere local to me. It's a higher-end version that gets its color from elderberries. They also make a clear version (Opal Blanca I believe).

Yes, I'm right between Stockton & Modesto, in a little town called Escalon about 10 miles east of Highway 99. We're right on Highway 120 that goes east directly up to Yosemite National Park, and west to turn into I-580 directly into San Fransisco. It's nice to be 3 hours or less from SF, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Reno (okay, that's 3-1/2), Santa Cruz and Monterey - but not having to live IN any of them... Beaches in the summer to the west, skiing in the winter mountains to the east!

Go there? So often that I used to have one of the regulars boxes behind the counter from about 1989-1993 (my Manteca High years). I may have actually worked for you for a short time before you sold the store! I remember grabbing KFC across the street on the nights the comics came in - Diamond Distributing in Berkeley, wasn't it?

Agree 100%

The black is much smoother, it's a lot thicker, and is night and day with the clear.

And I also drink Opal Nera. I haven't seen it in a while either.

Diamond was in Hayward. They're who I went to work for before we sold the store. Jeff, I'm sorry I can't place you, too many miles and years since then.

Hi there.

Real Name: Joe
Location: Cincinnati, Ohio
Family Situation: Married to a Disney crazed wife
Children: DD8, DD4, DS1
Occupation: Web Admin/Architect
Pets: none, just the kids
Favorite Food: Pizza followed closely by chocolate chip cookies
Favorite Drink: Ice Cold Beer.

Just thought I'd check in over here since I finally got around to creating my own profile. My wife and I are about to take our 2nd trip to WDW this year and the kids will be going back in January. My baby boy is only 14 months old and has been there twice. I'm pretty sure that we have a problem.

Occupation: Computer Science Professor

I suppose I should stop lurking, and do this properly.

Real Name:: Rich (although I have been known to answer to "Hey, you!", and look a lot like Ron Howard, so Opie/Richie Cunningham/etc have been known to surface)
Location: Battle Creek, MI
Family Situation: Married for 12 years. Two children - DS7 a/k/a "Munchkin" and DD4 a/k/a "SweetPea" (Or, Noisy & Noisier, depending on the day)
Occupation: Stay-at-home dad (7 years)
Pets: None
Favorite Food: Free. I'll eat almost anything, so I get to have fun at WDW, especially during Wine & Dine.
Favorite Drink: Guiness, but I have been expanding the range to craft beers and the like.
Hobbies: Miniature wargaming, Scouts, model railroading

I'm probably going to be adding model rocketry to the hobbies list. One of DWs sisters is at JPL, and has been working on the Mars rover, so my normally space-happy self has gone into geek overdrive.
