The Decline of Western Civilization, Part 23,506

I heard a local radio station advertising "a special martini night" at one of the local student bars. How special? "Tequila Sunrise-Banana Cream Martinis" were on special.

I don't know what that is, but it isn't a martini. Whoever invented it should be shot, and the bar should be burned down.

For added irony, the bar is "The Vintage Room," which purports to have a wine list, and at one point tried to be an adult bar (where actual adults, as opposed to drunk sorostitues, hung out.)

Abominations, all of them. Shooting is not painful enough for whoever invented that slop. Serving a drink in a cocktail glass (which is what that bit of barware is properly called, damn it, and it should be no bigger or smaller than 5 oz, ever) does not make it a "Martini". Ug.

Next time you come to Boston, I'll take you to the Eastern Standard -- the best cocktail-geek bar I've ever been in, hands down. Food's decent, too.

This wouldn't happen to be for "working women's wednesday", would it? I wonder how many working women actually show up. And not *that* kind of working.
