4th of July Pub Crawl

This was a first for Central Patti and I. We usually waste the day sitting by the pool at MySideOfTheBarATL, however this year we had something else in mind.

We started the day with a charity 4 mile walk/run for the Children's Shriner's Hospital here in KC.


Which would have been a whole lot more fun if it had not rained 2 1/2 inches while we participated. We both managed to finish and did enjoy our root-beer float at the end despite the pelting rain.
Once we both showered and had a Bloody Mary we were off to our first stop,  Seasons 52 on the KC Plaza. This has long been a favorite stop for us and this day was no different.
Central Patti enjoyed a glass of wine and I tried the Grapefruit Negroni.
y
We also enjoyed some Lobster Flatbread and Southern Shrimp and Grits, both absolutely fantastic.
Next it was on to Coopers Hawk for a few more drinks.
Then on to  Westport to the home away from home of MySideOfTheBars. Kelly's Westport Inn for a Cigar and a few beers.

The Great American Cocktail

Found this in a book and thought it was worth sharing

The Great American Cocktail
Perhaps it's made of Whiskey and perhaps it's mad of gin, perhaps there's orange bitters and an orange within, perhaps it's called Martini and perhaps it's called again, the name that spread Manhattan's fame among sons of men;

perhaps you like it garnished with what thinking men avoid, the little blushing cherry that is made of celluloid, but be these matters as they may, a cheer confrere you are if you admire the cocktail passed along the bar.
