This former dive bar has been a favorite of mine for sometime. With friendly bartenders, infused vodka, and kicking beats, Anu is an island of calm in the sea that is 6th Street in San Francisco.
Mehgan sends us this electric mix of cherry vodka, blue curaçao, grenadine and Sprite. This is one cocktail that doesn’t fake it!

1 oz blue curaçao
2-3 dashes grenadine
Sprite or 7 up
Combine in a shaker with ice, stir gently, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Drink should be a purple-blueish color. You can change the sweetness of drink by the amount of grenadine put … Read more
The Maker’s Mark folks are at it again with the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. We got a box of Maker’s Mark Bourbon Chocolates at Christmas and have never had a better liquor-soaked confection. They mix bourbon with a creme filling so the liquor taste is smooth and doesn’t squirt out like other liquor filled chocolates I’ve had.
To help celebrate Valentine’s Day, Maker’s Mark sent along a few love poems to include with a box:… Read more
Pinky is a new vodka from Sweden. Made by master wine tasters, it is a super premium vodka distilled 5 times. Pinky is then blended with 12 botanicals (most notably wild strawberries, rose petals and violets). Each of these botanicals is distilled separately prior to being blended with the vodka.

OK, so the name suggests that this should be the last stop. However, being the farthest away from home, we made it our first. I also chose the Final Final because it is one of my favorite sports bars in the San Francisco. It has tons of good quality flat screens, pool tables, some decent bar food and good strong drinks! It is also complete with all of the essential sports bar paraphernalia, … Read more

Windows Mobile is going to help us chronicle our many travels to bars and events around the globe with their mobile and mapping technology. To kick this off—and with it being cold everywhere except Florida and Hawaii these days—, what would be more perfect than to visit Hemingway hangout in sunny, warm Key West institution Sloppy Joe’s Bar?
Located at Greene & Duval Streets in the heart of Key West, Sloppy Joe’s has been delighting … Read more
How about some beer drinks? I certainly don’t post enough, so the folks at Tecate thought they would send us a few fun things to do with your beer. All of these concoctions are made with Tecate Light (duh, they sent me the recipes), which has just recently reached our shores. They all make me feel that summer MUST be around the corner, and that can’t be bad.
To update this favorite drink, … Read more
