A Spare That's a Strike
Fun with drinks and bowling at the Roosevelt
While we may remember Errol Flynn most vividly as a cinematic Robin Hood, the walls of Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel recall him differently: cooking up gin in a bathtub behind the first-floor barbershop.
This is the image that manager Aidan Demarest offered us as an entry into the world of the newly opened Spare Room, located on the mezzanine level of the Roosevelt. It's a compelling one, a distillation of the rich history of film and booze that the hotel represents.
Beer Cans – 1935
I’m amazed at the tid bits of information that I pick up on Twitter. For instance, on January 24 the introduction of beer cans was mildly celebrated around the country. I know that I’m a little late in posting that here, but I had the good sense to re-tweet it when I read the first tweet. If you don’t already know, in 1935 the American Can Co. was able to develop a lining for the inside of a tin can that would act as a protection against any reaction between beer and tin. The first brewer to give it a try was the Gottfried Krueger Brewing Company in Newark, NJ.
A case of mistaken beer identity
In the past couple of weeks, we’ve told you about a Pretty Things beer dinner at L’asso and the fact that Narragansett is now available in New York City.
Art In The Age Spirits, Root and Snap Liqueurs, Social Media Lodge
Up at the RealTVFilms Social Media Lodge, guests eagerly consumed Root and Snap from Art In The Age Spirits, two extraordinary new liqueurs actually concocted by a Pennsylvania advertising agency called Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction. Both certified organic, Root derives from Root Tea, a colonial-era spirit. It precedes the invention of Root Beer—an alcohol-free variant developed during the Temperance movement of the late 1800’s. While incredibly fun, complex and mixable, most of the guests at ReaTVFIlm’s four Lodge parties—one each for the Jewlicious pre-shabbat reception, Scenechronize, IndieGogo and Technicolor—drank Root and its ginger and molasses-distilled cousin Snap, straight. The also gobbled up everything else in the house–from Popchips, Pirate’s Booty and Pretzel Crisps to Mighty Leaf Tea, IZZE, Stella and Hoegarden beer.

GREENFIELD -- In 1963, the year after Penny Martineau was one of Narragansett Beer's Miss Hi Neighbor for the western Massachusetts region, a Greenfield woman won the same honor.
