In continuing with the cheap, cheerful, and efficient theme of my recent May/June trip with the girls, how does one best explore a city with just a couple days to spare? And without breaking the bank? Like I mentioned in my post about finding Nessie, sometimes you need to hop on a bus. In this …

City Girl Whisky Diary: Getting Thrifty with ‘Friends of the Classic Malts’
