Hand-Crafted Cocktail Course 2/28/13

Posted by    |    February 25th, 2013 at 8:34 pm

springcocktailI’m always a little impressed when I meet someone (whose not a bartender) that has some solid knowledge of mixology. I’m even more impressed when they can surprise me with one of the best Tequila Sunrises or Amaretto Sours I’ve ever had. Alot of people leave the art of mixology to bartenders, but how cool would it be if you could be  your own bartender, providing you and your friends with artfully mixed cocktails whenever the opportunity presented itself?

This Thursday, Seth Brammer, bar mixologist of Second Floor Bistro, will be holding a one night course in hand crafted cocktails. This hands-on class will show you how to perfectly mix some of the best springtime cocktails using ingredients such as vermouth, px sherry, champagne and rosé wine. Brammer will also share how to create a special infusion you can make at home.

Anti-Valentines Day Party at Frankie’s Sports Bar

Posted by    |    February 14th, 2013 at 5:12 pm

franxSingle this Valentines Day? Sitting at home eating a box of chocolates you bought yourself, watching lame romantic comedies? Well stop it. Come out to Frankie’s Sports Bar instead and tell Valentines day to kiss off with other like minded individuals. What makes this Anti-Valentines day party so good for your spirit is the giant shredder that will be located outside Frankie’s where you can put any remains of a dying or dead love affair such as an exes picture, a break up letter or that stuffed bunny from last year’s Valentines, through the blades for a nice cathartic release. Plus Every everyone who puts something through the shredder get’s a free drink (one per guest, up to a $6.50 value).

How cool is that, a free drink in exchange for some healthy emotional purging. To top it all off it’ll be happy hour prices all night with bar tenders mixing up 4$ drinks with names like Love Stinks, Stupid Cupid, Bitter End, and Arrow Thru my Heart. The party started at 11am but it’s going until 2am , so collect those pictures, letters or whatever other items that symbolize your relationship baggage that might be lying around, and drink some drinks to Valentines day being lame.
