December 5, 2011 (Day 251) — Haymarket Today is Repeal Day. On this day in 1933, the United States government finally decided that Prohibition, what some had called the “Nobel Experiment” was a failure. The streets were paved with marinated olives and ran clear with gin. Finally, you were able to drink legally again, not […]

Creamy Screwdriver

September 17, 2011 (Day 172) — Creamy Screwdriver I hate blenders in the bar. I’ve said it before. I will probably always continue to say it. The grinding, harsh cacophony of grinding bits and gears completely kills the relaxed, chummy atmosphere that the bar should foster. That being said, however, there are some killer cocktails […]

Knickerbein Cocktail

Kahlua Toreador

December 3, 2010 (Day 307) — Kahlua Toreador Tonight we hit the recent opening of the theater’s art gallery. One of Jenn and I’s close friends had a piece debuting in the display, which coincided with opening night of the Christmas show. Seemed like a good time to get out of the house and be […]


November 27, 2010 (Day 301) — Eggnog It’s the Saturday after Thanksgiving, which means that Jenn and I are busting out the decorations to gussy up the house for Christmas! That also means I was hanging off of a ladder putting up the lights on the house and laying the lights over the bushes. And […]

Golden Fizz

September 24, 2010 (Day 237) — Golden Fizz I recently read an article about using raw eggs in cocktails, so it inspired me to make another fizz for this Friday night. In the past I’ve only used egg white, so when Jenn pulled out the recipe for a Golden Fizz, I was pleased. After all, […]
