My Top Tips To Host The Best Girls Night EVER
On average, every month has 30 days and I think that as responsible adults, it’s necessary to dedicate at least one of them to a girls night gathering. The problem is that it’s been so long since most of us have experienced a girls night at home, rather than going out, that we’ve forgotten how to. It’s time to put your cell phones on silent mode, pour a big glass of wine and get ready to spill the tea because I’m about to walk you through the steps of creating the best girls night ever.
5 Beverages To Pair With This Summer's Gardening
My mom taught me everything I know about gardening. Things like what grows best in our climate, companion planting, and the ever-inventive job of creating makeshift fences so the dog doesn’t trample those newly planted seeds. One thing Mom left out was the fact that drinking while gardening is a near-perfect combination. The accompaniment of a refreshing beverage while plunging your hands into the earth is a feeling that everyone should know.
This Wasn't the Place for Cockroaches
She placed the pint on the coaster in front of him. "Another hot date, huh?" she asked with a grin as he finished scribbling a note in his little black book. He smiled and nodded his head.
My 5 Top Cocktails with Dog Inspired Names
Dogs are our adorable little furry companions that we have titled as “Man’s Best Friend” and it’s true. They are so loyal and loving that we can’t imagine why anyone would abuse these adorable creatures. As someone who loves both dogs and cocktail drinks. Here are my top 5 cocktail drinks with dog inspired names.
Struck by The Night
"Hey, Hennessey." "How are you doing, Korbel?" "I'm good. You going out tonight?" "Yeah. Me and my girl, Passion, going over to Club X-Rated for a few." "Why you ask; you going out?"
In Observance of National Margarita Day
Every February 22, we come together for National Margarita Day to pay homage to our favorite celebratory cocktail. The margarita is one of the most beloved cocktails in the world, however it’s hard to say definitively who created the margarita. Tales of its origin are as numerous as the variations of the drink itself.
Why You Should Always Tip Your Bartender
You may be surprised to know that full-time bartenders (unless you have an amazing owner/manager who provides a higher hourly base wage) make pretty much the entirety of their income based on the generosity of others, aka tips. That's right, our customers support our livelihood. It's not just "fun money" or extra money; it's our bills, our rent, our groceries, our medications, our doctor visits, our ability to help others - our basic necessities. For this reason alone, you should always tip your bartender.
Not My Usual
I like vodka. At least, that's what I always told people. What I really like is Smirnoff Ice -- the vodka coolers. I also like vodka when it's in mixed drinks, not just straight vodka. After the recent experience I had, I don't know if I'll be having vodka in any form for awhile.
Wine Down by Mary Haynes Andy was an old soul, a romantic renaissance man, at least that's what everyone told him. He had many friends; almost everyone he met liked him immediately. He made a point of prioritizing social time with friends and colleagues from law school, even though he didn't fully understand the games people played.
The Cutie Behind the Bar
I’m finishing counting my money for the night shift at the restaurant, “The Perview”. It’s one of the last fancy restaurants in town, and it still is only open on weekends and closes at 9pm. I’m sitting across from Annie-the only other server on Saturday nights-when I blurt out “I can’t believe I actually agreed to this!”.
A Guy and a Girl Walk Into a Beatles Bar ...
No it’s not Cheers, but if you go to The City Club on historic 25th street in Ogden, Utah, someone’s bound to know your name.
"You cannot seriously be asking me on a date right now?!" His hand reached out in the darkness to find hers. "I am seriously asking ." Her shaking hand relaxed slightly in his, palms clammy. "They won't be back for hours, it might take our minds off of well this" He gestured hopelessly, unseen, towards the blackness of the cellar.
Curating a Personal Collection
I had my first wine-tasting experience last week. I'm not an alcohol person, but I try to practice what I preach; as a creative, one must always try new things, to broaden the mind and open up the self to new creative possibilities.
Glory, on High St.
Two bartenders floated between the bar and tables. The after-work crowd had just about cleared out, but the house was still buzzing with seekers of proper food and potent drinks. This was the place. Every patron was given priority and, without fail, a taste of a something they had never known they’d wanted so bad.
Eternal Love on a Glass of Merlot
What is love but an equal partnership between lovers. If true, it does not question or blame, it does not compete or accuse.
Behaving Badly or Hiding Pain?
There’s a saying in Scotland that goes something like this “A Fu’ man is a true man”. What that means in plain English is quite simply... your fellow human who has imbibed a vast amount of alcohol will eschew the niceties of social behaviour and show and or tell you exactly how it is. How they are.
