ORIGINAL — Golden Springs

August 15, 2010 (Day 198) — Golden Springs After the humid, windy days western Kansas finally got a bit of a break today. Cloudy, rainy and temperatures that never topped 75 degrees; it was a little taste of fall in the Dog Days of Summer. In honor of that, I thought I’d take a break […]

Fancy Scotch

July 27, 2010 (Day 178) — Fancy Scotch Today is National Scotch Day! National here in US or in Scotland? Damned if I know really, I’m too damn lazy to Google it. (Okay, I went back and looked it up. According to this Website, it’s actually National Scotch Day in the US). I’m not exactly […]


July 19, 2010 (Day 170) — Cosmopolitan Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know. It’s a Cosmo. It’s a bullshit cocktail, drank in a dingy Houlihan’s at Penn Station while comparing you and your uninteresting friends to the blank slate characters that are the Sex and the City ladies. Hell, even Tales of the Cocktail had it […]

East India Cocktail No. 1

July 6, 2010 (Day 157) — East India Cocktail No. 1 I had such great success with Mr. Boston’s drink last night (slightly altered, granted) so I figured I’d hit up the book one more time to find something tropical and summery (as per my wife’s request). This one wasn’t quite to her liking, but […]


July 5, 2010 (Day 156) — Rosario This recipe is a personal play off of the Rosarito cocktail which appears in the “Mr. Boston Summer Cocktails” book. It’s summer allrighty. After some gorgeous — albeit rainy — days, today let way for some clear azure skies and a day-late fireworks display in my town. (They […]

Disaronno Sunset

June 6, 2010 (Day 127) — Disaronno Sunset Today I got sick, slept in, felt better, ate lunch, went shopping for yard stuff, installed a ceiling fan, potted over a dozen herbs for our kitchen garden, installed a hose wrangler, watered the lawn and exercised the dog. I’m tired now, so it’s time to kick […]


June 1, 2010 (Day 122) — Flatiron Proof that my brain is hardwired for food. The first thing I thought when I saw the name of this cocktail was of a flatiron steak. Then I wanted steak. Then I was disappointed to discover I didn’t have time to make a steak. I had a french […]

ORIGINAL — The Bunny

May 25, 2010 (115) — The Bunny I follow Playboy on Twitter and Facebook. No secret there. It’s always kind of been a bit more classy. The gentleman’s titty magazine. And while the old cliche says “I only read it for the articles,” it’s a safe bet that the articles really will be up to […]

Chapel Hill

May 19, 2010 (Day 109) — Chapel Hill Are you a sports fan? Heck yeah you are. How about college hoops? Kicks ass right? I mean, in my opinion there’s no way the NBA can even stack up to the awesomeness that is March Madness. The atmosphere, the tension and the school pride that comes […]
