I saw recently that the cocktail guru found a little cocktail bar in Paris, a city in which ordering a cocktail is always an adventure. The New York Times followed suit yesterday.
Since opening in November 2007, the bar, L’Experimental Cocktail Club, has inspired the kind of allegiance normally reserved for French films, politicians, pâtisseries and soccer. Two thousand fans are listed on Facebook. Regulars clock their daily attendance. Inside the 40-seat room, adorned sparsely with a “ghost” chandelier and rustic bricks and beams, everyone truly seems to know your name.Also, while browsing some old bourbon posts, I came across this one from Chow from two years ago that describes the Kentucky bourbon trail and is a good primer on bourbon. Did you know that only twelve companies make all the bourbon?
