I took the night to ponder this situation. You know. The whole -- you owe me situation. And I think I've figured out what you need to do to get yourself out of this fix you find yourself in. You'll notice in this comment thread that a lot of people have the opinion that you should be buying everyone cocktails. Bribery! What better way to assure a high turnout on November 7? Who am I to argue with my smart readers?
I think we may skip dinner and go straight for the cocktails.
So, be prepared to belly up to the bar.
A bunch of us, whoever wants to come, will meet here for sure. I mean, note the name of the bar. It's a sign. Now, I'm going to provide some instructions for specific *clicking.* Please follow the rules Tom, or you may end up owing me even more.
Now. *Click* the link above and look to the left and *click* the link that says Signature Cocktails.
Everyone who attends will have their choice of cocktails from that menu. At first I thought I'd go with The Parker. Named after Dorothy Parker, The Reigning Wit of the Algonquin Round Table. I've always felt that she and I would've be great friends. Because, you know, I have a very active fantasy life.
But then, as I continued reading the menu, I saw the cocktail for me.
The Martini on the Rock
It's a special occasion martini! Perfect!
But, knowing now that that's the drink I'm going to order, you have to make a reservation. So, being helpful, as I always try to be, here's the number: (212) 419-9325.
Please note that the price of the martini can vary. I think I would like it best if it came out of a blue box prior to being placed at the bottom of my beautiful martini glass.
I'm jus sayin'.
Blue girl readers: What cocktail would you like Tom to buy you? Which one do you think would ensure you showing up to vote on November 7?
Remember! This is all about being patriotic and a good American and caring about our democracy.
What appeals most to you? The New Yorker? The Viscious Circle? They all sound yummy.
From the description I think Tom's going to probably order The Slush Pile.
Again. I'm jus sayin'.
