Happy Hour: C’est la vie

November 1st, 2007 by smoop

I know. You can’t even think right now because you are so damn surprised that there is a Cocktail Confidential happy hour invite in your inbox. And you thought the Boo! ended last night!

Life has been a bit… crazy. Some good. Most … just crazy. I think the last official Happy Hour was in July at a place called Surtra which isn’t even in business anymore. I hope it wasn’t anything we did!

This week, we are going to hit up someplace with a little more staying power – Jardiniere! As everyone knows, they have great champagne! But did you ALSO know, they have Cocktail Confidential’s favorite bartender ever – the guy from our dearly departed C&L. He has a name. I’m sure I know it. But unfortunately he also has a wicked way with the booze, so for the most part I call him HeyIKnowYou!CanIHaveADeliciousCocktail? We stopped in last weekend and found that he has revived a TON of delicious old school cocktails. Yummy!

So, our visit this week is threefold.

First, and maybe most importantly, to catch up with you, our fellow drinker. I say maybe, because, after a couple of HeyIKnowYou!CanIHaveADeliciousCocktail?’s delicious cocktails, we won’t remember what we caught up about, only that, I love you man. No really, I do. *hic*

Second, and maybe most importantly, to learn this mans name. I say maybe most importantly because.. so far… HeyIKnowYou!CanIHaveADeliciousCocktail? has worked just fine. But knowing his name may help with number three.

Third, and maybe most importantly, to ask HeyIKnowYou!CanIHaveADeliciousCocktail? if he will go steady with us. Yes. You heard that right. We are going to ask HeyIKnowYou!CanIHaveADeliciousCocktail? to…. be out bartender on New Years Eve. I say maybe most importantly, because as history has shown, even without a bartender, we have managed to make the first day of the year, the most painful day of the year on our own. Having a bartender would only make it easier.

Do we need that?

Anyway, I will be at Jardiniere by 6:30 to secure space for us. Please RSVP so we know how many seats that will be!
