Weird. That's the face we make too...
Now that Tales of the Cocktail is upon us, and half of our city's best barkeeps are en route to NOLA to drink, sleep, and breathe all things mixology (lucky bastards), those of us stuck at home find we miss our favorite movers and shakers (see what we did there?) just a teensy bit.
disclosure, my idea of a quick cocktail is either a) cracking open a bottle of
beer, which is not a cocktail, or b) taking a shot, which is also not a
cocktail. Give me a little more time, maybe put on some relaxing, lounge-y
music, leave the room, and I can definitely whip something up for you. Maybe.
it's fair to say I would have been out of my depth behind the bar at Monday
night's American Idol/Iron Chef Cocktail Competition at The Hawthorne. And--because I know some of you
read that last sentence and thought, American Idol?-- no, the bartenders did
not need to sing while they slammed together artful combinations of spirits in
shakers, and the goateed Kevin Brauch, thankfully, was not there.
I apologize in advance for plying you with yet ANOTHER "Shit [insert
niche here] Say" video, but the interwebs have kicked out a variation
that anyone who has ever worked in or around a bar will appreciate.
