    Oh sweet Jesus . . . I’m . . . I . . .

  • Oh, come on now, Ms. Dean.

    Love your new avatar, by the way.

  • It’s been a while since I’ve been in! 🙂 You’re still going strong!

  • A while, Maura? Longer than that, I’d say.

    But thank you for dropping by the journal pulp, where all the relevant people congregate.

  • I’m undone. Can I just say that I completely understand the one hundred olives.

  • What’s up with her? Is it the saxophones? It’s the saxophones, isn’t it? Nailed it.

  • What’s with her? Was it the saxophones? Maybe it was the high ball glasses. Chicks dig glassware. Nailed it.

  • I don’t know about nailing it, but thank you, Karl. She is a woman of rare and refined tastes — that’s what’s with her. You’re right about glassware, by the way. It’s underrated, misunderstood, important.

  • Almost like being there.

    Almost.

    Miss the bar and you. (Averil it’s better in person and he will serve you a hundred olives).

  • I’m really shocked that Hollywood hasn’t come calling. Or have they been turned down?

  • Columbi, how are you? I haven’t seen you in forever.

    Turned down, yes. Flatly.

    And flattery will get you everywhere.

  • I love it! I still feel like a kid in a candy store at a bar. And I’d probably go to this one a lot, LOL

  • Jules, what a pleasant surprise to see you. Your SPAM filter swallowed up my comment like one big martini, so that I assumed the comment would never again see the light of day. But look who regurgitated it. (I apologize: it’s mixed metaphor March here.)

    “I’d probably go to this one a lot”

    Thank you! The truth is, I’d be hurt if you didn’t.

    And thank you for dropping by.

  • A day in the life of a cool.

  • Oh, please. A day in the life of clumsy, more like it.

  • […] Bartending, which, for better or worse, consumes a great deal of my time, is a subject that evidently intrigues people to no end — judging, at least, from the sheer number of questions I get on the matter — and often I’m asked: Ray, why bartending? Why putting the cock back in cocktail? […]

  • Ace Gillette’s… Without question, the coolest spot in town!

  • Thank you, my brother. It’s good to see you.

    Thank you for dropping by.
