Quinn + Toink Vol. 89: Vive La Revolution!

Quinn + Toink Vol. 89: Vive La Revolution!

 
Sunday was Bastille Day, celebrating the storming of the prison which kicked off the French Revolution complete with the Terror, and the beheading of swathes of French aristocrats by Mme. La Guillotine.
 
As you already know DQ loves France. In particular the Côte d'Azur and its spectacular light, beloved of Cezanne, Matisse, Picasso and others.
 
While we can't be there as much as we'd like to, there is always occasion to don an unstructured summer linen or tropical wool suit, raise a glass, and squint until you can see the teak deck of your superyacht beneath you.
 
And with that, we are going to make it brief. And suggest a cocktail. So, get to the bottom, and bottom's up!

the rosé diaries: A60 edition

 
We've been getting quite fond of the cozy roofdeck at the Sixty Hotel on Thompson Street.
 
So cozy, in fact, that we decided to throw a shindig for sundown this Thursday on their sundeck. Our buddy who invented the term, "WiFi" will be DJ-ing, and the rosé will be flowing for some proper pre-dinner #quinning.
 
5pm - 8pm.
 
Please do RSVP so we have an idea you are coming and can put you on the list.
 
If you'd like a table for you and some friends please also let us know.
 
Alternatively, you could quoff some at home by using the link below to order directly.

watch: V for Vendetta

 
Remember, remember!
    The fifth of November,
    The Gunpowder treason and plot;
    I know of no reason
    Why the Gunpowder treason
    Should ever be forgot!
    Guy Fawkes and his companions
    Did the scheme contrive,
    To blow the King and Parliament
    All up alive.
    Threescore barrels, laid below,
    To prove old England's overthrow.
    But, by God's providence, him they catch,
    With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
    A stick and a stake
    For King James's sake!
    If you won't give me one,
    I'll take two,
    The better for me,
    And the worse for you.
    A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,
    A penn'orth of cheese to choke him,
    A pint of beer to wash it down,
    And a jolly good fire to burn him.
    Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring!
    Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King!
    Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!
 
Thus was not the fate of V.

We like to think that the right outfit transports you to another place. And we've noted before that it does actually make a difference. But even if you have your Edwardian cuffs cut right like our friend in the photo, and your waistcoat with lapel in place, you may need more giddy-up than just a fine wool mohair blend [...]
