Movie Cocktails

June 25, 2015
Movie Cocktails

Our lovely Amanda and Heather are doing a little cross-promo for the return of our Monday night Cocktail Cinema, and they’re putting some delicious brain-thought into it.

I’m coming in for this Thursday night myself, cuz a.) they sound delicious, and b.) we have some killer A/C and I’m becoming a sissy when it comes to the heat at night. Plus, I miss you all like the flowers miss the rain.

For example:
• a Damiana cocktail inspired by Spinal Tap’s “Sex Farm”
• a sazarac for the Blues Brother song “New Orleans”
• an elevated bluegrass cocktail for the O Brother Where Art Thou Soggy Bottom Boys band
• an elevated sparkling New Zealand cocktail with passion fruit, grand marnier, and persecco for Flight of the Conchord’s song “Foux di Fafa”
• The Jeffery, inspired by Aldous Snow in Get Him To The Greek with kiwi, mint, lime, and tequila.

I also bet, without even checking with H and A, that they can come up with other drinks based on your movie favorites. They may be mad at me for that. I apologize in advance.

See you Thursday night, and hugs.

Cocktail Club: Florida Blues

June 18, 2015

Florida Blues

Lots of different opinions on what’s the most bats**t crazy state in the country, but my bet’s on Florida, where our DJ Kingblind is visiting this week.

Paying tribute to our guy Morgan, of course, as well. Amanda did some figuring and Florida is the biggest citrus state in the country, and has the highest consumption of magical, delicious Rum.

So there you go: Floridita Daiquiri, Rum Runner, Rum Daisy, Agricole Punch, and thousands more. Challenge Amanda — cuz she can do it, I promise. Tonight, 6PM.

Heart,

Spiders, Ancient Egyptians and Comedy

June 15, 2015

Emmett Montgomery

Emmet Montgomery works that high-tension wire between the pure/lovely and the awful/wicked. That’s where comedy lives…”
– Brendan Kiley/ The Stranger

“When God closes a door, He opens a window and anything can crawl in. Not spiders, they are already there, they have always been there.”

Just a taste of the sharp, tongue-in-cheek comedy style of Emmett Montgomery, one of Seattle’s top comedians. Headlining “Just Laugh It Off” Comedy Night at the Feedback Lounge on Wednesday, June 17, 8PM (no cover), you ‘ll not only be treated to a barrage of Emmet’s insightful and twisty observations, but appearing with six more rising star laugh masters as well.

“If we switch our written language into all emojis we’ll basically be the ancient Egyptians…”

“As is tradition on one’s birthday eve, tonight I put the past year of my life under my pillow for the grim reaper. I hope he leaves candy…”

Also appearing is the fantastic Josh Chambers, Sarah Skilling, Randy Iwancio, Rick Taylor, and Mona Concepcion, and hosted by Ty Devaney.

Summer Tea, Swear Words, Sunshine

June 11, 2015

Summer Tea
Thursday
 night gals: “We’re making tea cocktails, cuz it’s f***ing hot.”
Me: “Sounds good. Maybe a little more detail, please.”
TNG: “Mia Thai Iced Tea. Blackberry Bourbon Black Tea. Watermelon White Tea Margarita. Ginger and Bitter Peach Green Tea-ni.”
Me: “Guhhhh, those sound really REALLY good…” (considers hanging up creative cocktail hat and handing off to TNG).

So, yeah, cool down with this magical booze. And also air conditioning. But mostly, the booze.

Tonight at 6. Yay!

Cat Cocktails

June 4, 2015

 

Cat CocktailsAmanda wants to do drinkies that relate to June’s holidays, but not the ones you’re thinking. Today, evidently, is “Hug Your Cat Day,” “Old Maid’s Day,” and “Applesauce Cake Day.” It’s also Rose Month, which goes pretty well with what we can do.

Floral is one of those flavors people think of as all sweet girly drinks, but there are flowers in Vermouth, Bitters, Liqueurs, and a bunch of other booze. That’ll be the base for tonight, but I still think you should make Amanda do a cocktail in honor of hugging your cat. Please let me know how that goes. Let’s say 6ish.

Love You,
– OMJ
