Legend tells that Count Camillo Negroni asked his friend, bartender Forsco Scarselli, to strengthen his favourite cocktail – the Americano – by replacing the soda water with gin.

The Negroni was born in 1919.

This is Count @jon_schott4thepeople’s take for #negroniweek2020 via @dcsippin

“Came for the cocktails, stayed for the Cubano.”

Saturday M O O D.


Our beloved barkeep, Ashley McDaniel, was severely injured in a bicycle accident on her way to work August 11th and continues to require extensive medical treatment as a result. Taking the brunt of her fall to her face, she needed more than 30 in her face alone, and suffered a fractured jaw, painful road rash, a concussion and nerve damage in her hands and arms.

We all know Ashley as a reliable and fun lively member of our family - writing personal notes on orders and already joy daily.

This weekend we’ll be selling gentleman jack whiskey sours to raise money for Ashley’s medical bills. A donation is made when you purchase a Gentleman Jack whiskey sour in house or to go.

If you’d like to help Ashley, we’ve provided her Venmo in the next slide.
