Last night was a lot of fun at Forbidden Island. Instead of mixing drinks, I was there cocktailing, as our regular Saturday evening cocktail waitress, Meg, needed the evening off. Early in the evening, a pair of Zombies found their way into the bar... I was sad that I had forgotten my camera and didn't get the chance to get a photo of them. They were having your typical excellent undead sort of time. Jolly Zombies, these two ladies were!
Lots of conversation was in the air about the launch of the Black Orchid Club, too. For those of you not yet in the know, the Black Orchid Club rolls out on Wednesday, November 4th. Beginning that day for 13 consecutive Wednesdays, Forbidden Island (and yours truly) will present one all original cocktail, never before served at FI and never to be served again. Each Wednesday is all unique, and you only have that one chance to have that unique cocktail. Each person ordering the special cocktail of the day will receive a collectors card specific to that day and cocktail. At the end of the 13 weeks, cards will be redeemable for special prizes... watch this space for more details as the game unfolds.
Today, I'm tightening up the straps on my Halloween cocktail special, the Renfield Cocktail (one of my favorite Halloween characters of all time). Here's Tom Waits as the infamous character:
Come and try this potent delectable on Halloween at FI!
I'll see YOU at the Island!
