50 Plates should have our new cocktail list out sometime next week. Stop in and check out the Collette Sling (hint- its got maple syrup and its perfect for this time of year) and our other new and classic creations. I think this could be our best cocktail menu yet.
Sunday is National Magarita Day. I might get a post up about it this weekend (actually, if I do, I'll write it tonight and schedule it for Sunday), but if I don't, make sure to celebrate early and often on this important national occasion. When the fine people at Jose Cuervo sent me a press release about this, my first thought was that February was a bit of a strange time to schedule a margarita day (I mean, doesn't August seem like a better fit?), but then I realized that, at least in Oregon, what better thing to do on a cold and wet Sunday in February but sip a refreshing margarita and daydream of tropical locations? Anyway, I'll be drinking a few margaritas this Sunday and I'd suggest you do the same.
Also, Zwack is back. I'm eager to get my hands on some but I don't think that its made it into Oregon yet. Hopefully it comes in soon.
I'm taking a short vacation beginning tomorrow. I'm turning off the cell phone, staying away from the internet and forgetting about cocktails other than the ones I'll be drinking. Its my hope to be completely unreachable for a few days. A little peace and quiet should do me some good. I'll see you all when I get back.
