If neo-speakeasies bore you and swanky rooftop bars just leave you chilly, consider the next round of Damon Boelte and Aaron Polsky’s Cripple Creek, the occasional series that showcases the drinks made by the Prime Meats and Amor y Amargo bartenders. At their next event, to be held at Webster Hall on May 31, $40 gets you a tasting flight of eight original cocktails and an earful of “boot-stomping” rock. Polsky and Boelte also promise “a few surprises.”
This is going to be cool … imagine a rock band that makes strange and interesting cocktails. M. would have been in it but I’m stealing him away for Julie and Aaron’s wedding. So instead he’s been helping them prepare, which means there’s some sort of gellant slowly hardening in my oven and clinical bags of food chemicals all over my dining room table. Science!
