Let’s get this out of the way right up front, this is not really a cocktail blog. I work hard to make sure the drinks info is solid, but if you want to learn how to make cocktails there are probably better options. These missives are mostly my thoughts on the events of the day or reminisces looking back on a half century of misspent youth, loosely draped around a drink made on our kitchen counter. It’s got links to the bars, the alcohols, the music and anything else I find interesting. Nobody is making any money off of them, so click if you are into it or don’t. The bottom line is, we were stuck at home for a long time and these daily shouts into the dark helped me provide some routine and ritual in a world turned upside down. It is my sincere hope that reading them will help you stay safe, stay hydrated and stay sane, my friends.
