Otherwise known as the “Helloooooo, people of Salon!” post.
Back during Tales of the Cocktail (yes, I’m still going on about it), I sat down for lunch one afternoon with Robert Simonson, a fellow pixel-stained wretch who runs the lovely Off the Presses blog. Robert also earns his lunch money by writing, and today the transcript of our conversation over gumbo and Abita amber appears in a story he wrote for Salon.com.
Here’s Robert’s article; it’s in the premium section, but you may be able to read it for free (I don’t really know how these things work over there):
If you read the story first and followed the links in this direction, then WELCOME! Make yourself at home, and be sure to stop back soon.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to mix up a celebratory cocktail. Thanks for the kind words, Robert.
(And, if you like what you see here, be sure to check out a few of my friends — you’ve already met Darcy, Rick and Chuck from over at Salon, but there’s also Jeffrey Morgenthaler, A Dash of Bitters, The Thirstin’ Howl, Drink Boston, Jimmy’s Cocktail Hour, Explore the Pour and a slew of other drink bloggers too numerous and talented to mention, but absolutely worth a visit — the links for many of whom can be found to your right, or by exploring these pages. And again, welcome.)
