For once I don't have to really write anything up since Mark Hedden has written about the Thanksgiving Cocktail Shed and our offering this year--and he shot the whole thing as well. But in short: Elvis Costello themed tool shed this year, with our leading drink being a riff on the Sbagliato. The crowns are a visual homage to "The King of America" album cover.
The most naturally regal looking person in a crown that day was the one least likely to give a damn about any status or hierarchy, the man who surfs the Eastern Sambo Reef in Key West, Aaron Snell. Pics of that here.
The elusive Calamondon was the "brilliant" in the "Brilliant Mistake a.k.a A Fine Idea".
Late in the evening. That glass ibowl was my grandma Betty's--she had very chic cocktail actroument.
Nellie looks sort of Bergmanesque and sad here, but she was not, and the in-the-dark dance session we had at the tail end of the evening proved that.
Bitter Truth's indespensible Travelers kit--now available in Key West at the Green Parrot Liquor Store.
Myself and Lord Ottenbottom himself.
..because how often do you make cocktails with construction masks hanging overhead?
Sweetpea doesn't like having her photo taken, but she still looks good in a crown.
