A little montage of a year in the life – mine, specifically.
Happy New Year to all of my blog readers.
By the way, my daughter requested the dramatic ending. Who'd have guessed?
[A] classic cocktail society dedicated to breeding, raising, and releasing nearly extinct drinks into the wild (a.k.a. Boston-area bars and restaurants.) Founded in February 2007 by Misty Kalkofen and nine fellow cocktail enthusiasts, LUPEC Boston is the city’s first and only female-oriented cocktail society. The ladies of LUPEC Boston meet once a month to sample delicious cocktail creations from a bygone era, and educate themselves about the important and nearly forgotten forebroads who sipped them.
The women get together at least once a month to talk about how cocktails and spirits have played a role in history and feminism. Per LUPEC’s bylaws, these meetings/parties must have a theme; past topics include cocktails in classic cinema, first ladies and their cocktails, and the history of New Orleans.
“They run the gamut from geeking out about cocktails to women’s history,’’ Amann said.
