    Good evening and welcome to what, with the impending switch to DK4, may well be the last ever Thirst Day Edition of Diary Rescue. Tonight's Rescue Rangers are grog, claude, Purple Priestess, vcmvo2, YatPundit, and ybruti, with sunspark says feeling a little buzz from the boat drinks as she tipples her way through her editing duties.

    It's February 3, 2011. We're digging out from a massive blizzard here in Illinois, a state that was created as a territory on this date in 1809. Also on this date, in 1918, the Twin Peaks streetcar tunnel began service in San Francisco. At nearly two miles the longest tunnel in the world, rumor has it there is a diner at the end where you can find a slice of cherry pie and a damn good cup a joe. And now please enjoy tonight's underappreciated treasures found for you by the rescue rangers:

    In the Fruit Flavored Schnapps category:

    In the Boat Drinks category:

    In the Whiskey, Straight Up category:

    In the Fine Wine Category:

    And finally, in the Dom Perignon Category:

    jotter brings us High Impact Diaries: February 2, 2011.

    Ed Tracey has Top Comments: Ernest Shackleton & Mrs. Chippy the Cat edition.

    One more note about February 3:

    It was on this day in 1874 that Gertrude Stein was born in Allegheny, PA, where a baby is a baby is a baby.

    Don't hesitate even for a microsecond to promote your favorite diaries (even your own) in the Open Thread. Pimp away!
