Let's get this grad party started!


What shall it be, Savannah? We've stocked up! Chambord? Check! Kumquat liqueur? Check! Butterscotch Schnapps? Check! Rose cordial? Yeap! Quince elixir? You bet! And of course the requisite Vodkas, Single Malts, Dom Perignon and Gins (Plymouth too in case Travis McGee drops by - no running off with him though, Silia has dibs on him! They'll be taking off for the Keys in the Busted Flush for a week of R & R!) BarTwiculate is OPEN but not for business - only pleasure! What's your pleasure?
***Bartwender's Note: A round of Werther's shots, a triple vodka martini, another vodka martini, dirty, three olives and a triple dirty Gin Martini, 3 gorgonzola-stuffed olives coming right up! I'm having Irish Whiskey, straight up in honor of Savannah's Fightin' Irish spirit! Wassail!

  1. A round of Werther's Original shots please? (.5 oz of Crown Royal and .5 oz of Butterscotch Schnapps.)

  2. You're too young for Werthers, Savannah - leave that for us old 'uns!

    Bartwender : a triple vodka martini please, so I can get ready to toast our new graduate at 2PM. Oh.. better line up four or five, as we still have two hours to go :-)

  3. LOL! Werthers are delicious, Tidd. :-)

    Bartwender: May I please have a vodka martini on the rocks, dirty with three olives, too? Thank you!

  4. I'll have a triple Gin Martini, dirty, with three gorgonzola-stuffed olives, s'il vous plait, monsieur!

  5. So, Sil, who is this Travis McGee?

    ReplyDelete
  6. What's this "dirty"? I mean, apart from the obvious!

  8. Oooops... too many typos in previous comment - can't have that!

    Apart from the obvious, a dirty Martini is when you use a bit of the olive brine when you mix it :-)

    Travis McGee??? Savannah! You've not met my beloved rogue, Trav?!

    He is a sailor, tinker, soldier, spy. Well, not "spy" but "Salvage Consultant". Lives aboard his boat, The Busted Flush in Fort Lauderdale.

    Despite his being a bit rough around the edges, he is one of the least chauvinistic men I've ever met and yet one of the most manly ones too. (And WAY hot!)

    Trav & I go way back... he saved me once when I was going through a bit of a rough time. We still take off for weeks at a time cruising the Florida Keys. Just us, sunshine, the sea and Plymouth Gin!

    Ross D. MacDonald has written a lot about my Trav's adventures. You should check them out. You'll love my Trav. I warn you, though: Impossible to not fall in love with him!

  9. He sounds fantastic, Sil! I'm so glad that you have him. Your description of him makes me think of a kind-hearted, harmless, fun, modern-day pirate who likes gin. I feel like I could write a story about a character like that. :-)

    Tidd, dirt as olive juice is a delicious thing. If you've not had it before you should try it!

  10. Trav's everything you described EXCEPT harmless... he's caused quite a bit of harm actually but all of it to very bad people. As with most men, occasionally to himself, also.

    Read "The Deep Blue Goodbye"... you can say hello to him there, and I promise you, you'll never want to bid him goodbye.

    ReplyDelete
  11. "The Deep Blue Goodbye"? I will buy it this week and read it. Sounds like it will be a good read.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wow - why is it that REAL men only exist in fiction? I will have to check out "The Deep Blue Goodbye" ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I've read every Travis McGee novel (~24? 30?) The Deep Blue Goodbye was the first time I met Travis so it's special to me. Say hi to Meyer Meyer. Tell him I have a cool new game we can play that he'll like as much as our chess games.

  14. You know, Tidd, that's a great question. I'm sure there are real men outside of fiction too, but they're so readily available in fiction.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm picturing Humphrey Bogart with Lauren Bacall in that movie ... you know, the one where s/he says "You do know how to whistle don't you? You just pucker up your lips, and blow". (I may have paraphrased slightly - I'm relying on my own memory here, not Google's :-)

  17. Typo again! Sorry!

    I don't think real men exist only in fiction, Tidd. I think they are everywhere. I think us women tend find fictional men's flaws charming but in real life we can be less forgiving of their humanity.

    I say let's love all our men: fictional, real, and let us women be in our real life cooler than any fiction girls :-)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Perfect example, Tidd: Bogie & McCall were a real-life couple too, in addition to being supremely glamorous fictional ones!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hahaha - yes, so true, I chose a bad example! Or as you showed me perhaps, a GOOD example :-)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love gorgonzola-stuffed olives. I love gorgonzola. I love olives.

    Star is expert at Blood Mary. I will wait for her. I will drink mineral water for now. Perrier is OK.

  27. Gee, I'm so sorry! I forgot about the party! I was driving my daughter to the movies and then I got busy doing something else. Congratulations, Savannah! Will you forgive me if I just have a Perrier? No alcohol for me... ♥

  31. Hi Savannah: I'm so sorry I didn't make it to your party. I had other obligations, if you get my drift. Congratulations! You're the best.
