Yes! This is exactly how I'll market it.

In a way, I'm almost sorry to learn that you know so much about a network TV show (even if it is a very good one). I've always imagined you as one who is too busy with interests far more interesting television. I know this probably doesn't read this way, but this is supposed to be a complement.
haha, a man cannot live on alternative cinema and post-modern fiction alone. my approach is high-low. dom perignon and corndogs. plus parks and rec is a great show.
So, my check's in the mail?
So tomorrow I was supposed to attend the my boss's boss's staff meeting. Well that asshole (not my boss, but his boss) canceled as he'll be out of the office. Looks like I'm slipping out early and heading over to the Velvet Tango Room. I am going to tell the bartender to make me something with a lot of orange in it.
I imagine you attending a great deal of soirees hosted by various Bay-area tech companies. They recognize your talents as a taste-maker and use you as a sounding board to help them achieve the proper design aesthetics for their new app. They ply you with the drink of your choice late into night as you lecture them on achieving the proper balance of function and fun.
Just gonna leave this here
"Son, never trust a man who doesn't drink because he's probably a self-righteous sort, a man who thinks he knows right from wrong all the time. Some of them are good men, but in the name of goodness, they cause most of the suffering in the world. They're the judges, the meddlers. And, son, never trust a man who drinks but refuses to get drunk. They're usually afraid of something deep down inside, either that they're a coward or a fool or mean and violent. You can't trust a man who's afraid of himself. But sometimes, son, you can trust a man who occasionally kneels before a toilet. The chances are that he is learning something about humility and his natural human foolishness, about how to survive himself. It's damned hard for a man to take himself too seriously when he's heaving his guts into a dirty toilet bowl."
Not meaning to insult you or anything like that, but this quote is fucking stupid.
The idea that the only way to learn humility is by getting wasted...sorry. The quote is more self-righteous than the people it's describing. yuck.
I'll try again.
The bottom glass is mine. It's a negroni with whisky instead of gin. I think there's a proper name for it but I've forgotten. It's my go-to at the moment because every bartender knows how to make a negroni and if they just substitute the whisky in it's good.
slightly better if you go half and half sweet/dry vermouth. Full rosso is slightly too sweet but not really noticeable when I'm out in town and just want a reasonable cocktail that the bartender won't fuck up.
Just started taking a bartending class at Columbia because I got bored with the same old, same old. Best pregame ever. Get educated and drunk at the same time, ends just in time to go hit the bars on a Friday night with a great buzz and a hefty chunk of knowledge in your pocket.
That said, I've developed a penchant for making sloe comfortable screws and harvey wallbangers (we've only covered highballs insofar). Extra fun with women haha
No exactly very highbrow or fancy I suppose, but learning the basics of bartending is so much fun. Your friends love you too when you're practicing and they get free alcoholic disasters.
And I seriously miss my scotch for quiet evenings, need to stop pissing away all my money and go buy another bottle of Macallan or something.
Had a few of these recently and can definitely vouch for it being a banging drink. 1 part campari: 1 part vermouth : 4 parts prosecco goes down very nicely.
