As we prepare for the full fledged season of hot toddies and all things bourbon, sidewalk shoveling, oversized sweaters and infinity scarves, we would like to take a moment and look back at these past couple of months in our Lucky world.
The Halloween/Día de los Muertos weekend was a fun one, filled with costumes, candy, altars, trick-or-treaters… With the current show, La Vida de los Muertos, the perfect backdrop was set for the festivities.
Friday, Ken and Marisa tried to be as “professional” as possible, and Saturday, our awesome make-up artist neighbor, Kate, donated her time and skills to transform their faces.
Sunday, we cheered on the amazing marathoners for a few minutes before brunch and mimosas.
We experimented with new drinks and bites, a few of which have found their way to our autumn menu.
Michelada marinated chicken tacos
Cocktail del dia- The Nutty Porfessor: cognac, sweet vermouth, caradmaro, rye and black walnut bitters (obsessed!!)
Calabaza: sautéed grilled yellow & green zucchini, tomato, onion, ginger and garlic
Duck confit ramen
Cocktail del dia- Penicillin Riff: blended scotch, ginger, lemon, demerara, aromatic bitters, islay scotch, salt
Beef noodle- Taiwanese style!
Cocktail del dia- Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Manhattans
Pork belly and kimchee tacos
Cocktail del dia- My Bloody Ballantine: Ballantine blended scotch, cocchi americano, luxardo maraschino, raspberry
Cocktail del dia- Moon Port: tawny 10 yr port, chinato, dry vermouth, allspice and angostura bitters
We also experienced a little print fame and mingled with celebrities… our michelada is featured in New York Magazine’s Winter Wedding Issue! And Ken was affectionately “greeted” by Swatch, the beloved resident of Mood, frequently featured on Project Runway.
And of course, Drake, our tried and true companion, mascot and comic relief, has been as patient and playful as ever.
