Champagne Century

Champagne Century

There are exactly four bottles of unbelievably precious Krug 1915 left in the entire world. With the will to write a sizable check and some pretty snappy work with a paddle the chance to pop one of them open could be yours. On Sept. 25 in New York, Sothebys is […]

Dining With Princes And Pirates

Dining With Princes And Pirates

All of us rat-race-worker-bee individuals have only a few weeks out of the year (plus sick days, personal days, and the ubiquitous roll over days) to completely detach from reality and responsibility. On those precious days off, we recommend going completely extreme. We're not talking off-the-rails-and-end-up-in-rehab extreme, […]
Blood Orange French 75

Blood Orange French 75

A rakish look calls for an elegant rakish cocktail. Let me suggest a Blood Orange French 75. The original French 75 was first created at Harry's New York Bar in Paris in 1915. The drink was said to pack such a kick that it felt like being shot with […]
Toasting The Ploughman Poet: Robert Burns

Toasting The Ploughman Poet: Robert Burns

Even by today’s standards, the famed Scottish poet Robert Burns lived a very fast life. Also known as the Ploughman Poet, he fathered numerous illegitimate children (think double digits!) and had too many love affairs to count. Puts our modern day ploughman Mick Jagger to shame. Every […]

Celebrating The Life Of The Original Scot's Playboy

A. Always. B. Be. C. Closing. The holy trinity of selling. And Alex Baldwin does it well. Impossibly well. But another combination springs to mind which we decided to fully investigate in the balmy climes of Los Angeles while New York was […]
DB9 Delights

DB9 Delights

What better way to arrive for a dinner built around the wines consumed by James Bond in Goldfinger than an Aston Martin. A Bentley may well have been the motor of choice of Fleming's Eton educated Bond, but Cubby Broccoli's milkman from Edinburgh began with a preference […]

And Counting

And Counting

I try to be generous. I skip a few days here and there. I don't count them. Im sure there are days when I was sick, or when there was no gin. In the interest of fairness, I should shave a few days off each year for […]
A Match Made In Heaven

A Match Made In Heaven

Considering how much bubbly (and specifically Krug) I've guzzled down in the last few years, months, weeks, days… I should know a little bit more about the special suds, but alas my expertise in the subject is somewhat limited to just consumption. Which isnt a bad thing because the […]
