First, the pretty boys wussified our punk rock… Then they came for our monsters… And that is not cool, man. I’m not down with the growing trend to recreate modern Vampires as ethical, empathetic beings. This new breed is rationalized as merely misunderstood, nay, reluctant immortals. Immortal beasts challenged by their instinctual vampiric desires and [...]
There are few places on STX that I can truly walk into without reservations. And I’m not referring to those oh, so necessary reservations like “Hey we’d like a table at 8:30″ kind of reservations, I mean the kind of place that doesn’t instill a small level of fear when I order from the menu. [...]

Tiare blogs about cocktails over at A Mountain Of Crushed Ice and I have often been impressed with the drinks she offers up [...]
Continuing on with my gushfest of all things Tales of the Cocktail related, I want to introduce to you a few of the people that made my New Orleans experience taste so much brighter.
