The Twisted Vine & Birmingham Cellars

Rockin Blues in Derby, who woulda thunk? We decided to prowl the streets of Derby on Saturday evening looking for an interesting place for a cocktail and some nibbles. Surprisingly, the downtown restaurant area was packed but we eventually found a parking spot several blocks away. That trek gave us the chance to explore a bit. The warm Indian Summer […]

Score! Being in the mood for a martini on a recent date night (big surprise there, right?) Dave and I drove to Woodbury to sample those made at Carmen Anthony Fish House.

Crazy Night!

Crazy Night!

Wow!  Crazy night last night; wicked wind and torrential rain and get this… 72 degrees!  Actually it’s a typical September storm if you live in New England.   I love watching Mother Nature throw a hissy fit!  It also reminded me of a classic cocktail: the Dark N’ Stormy.  Here’s the recipe and photo, borrowed from Andrea J. Bartholomew at TheFramedTable.com Dark N’ […]
