I only learned about weird little Fernet when I moved to SF. It's true that all of my bartender buddies prefer it as their thank you shot, but I haven't acquired the taste yet. It even has its own theme song that is semi-famous in some corners: http://www.sfbg.com/noise/2011/06/15/summer-time-fernet-drinking-just-got-its-video-anthem
My friend sent me John&Kira's from Philly for my birthday - not only were they fabulous, they were obviously thoughtfully packaged and they take great care with making sure the flavors are at their peak.
oh, the dirty "o", so notoriously....dirty.
Yup, those fries are pretty perfect after a night of a few too many Cold Irons.
I made this crab/pumpkin curried bisque and luckily it was a hit.
It was completely devoured, with people going back for seconds! Crab was a winner too, and went well with the great sides we shared.
Thanks for the great suggestions! I'm definitely less panicked.
The Rickhouse berry-infused gin or vodka cocktails are dreamy. These sound like winners, too - I'll have to try out the corpse reviver.
@ag3208, exactly! I didn't want to end up like Deborah.
@annzee2, I adore shrimp and remoulade, I will have to indulge in that recipe (there is Christmas....)
Huzzah! So I am now also thankful that you all like the crab idea.
Dungeness (commercial) season starts tomorrow, woohoo!
When I perfect this pumpkin/crab soup idea I will be sure to post it.
