Not for me personally. The ring means those days are over.
Bad jokes aside, my finacee and his beer club want to make an anchient date brew. As no beer nerd would be content to just skedaddle down to the farmers market or Trader Joe's, he armed me with the task of locating a source of great imported or just local exotic dates. I was thinking an Indian or Middle-eastern market. Where are the best dates to be had?
