But apparently such drinks are increasingly popular in Larryville. A piece in today's LJ-World explores the "infusions" of various local venues, focusing on 715 (our new European bistro) and Esquina (our new freaky taco shop) and the Pig (our pretentious old standby).
715 bar owner Margie Hogue says: "Right now, we have a cucumber- and fennel-infused gin, an apricot-infused bourbon, a lemon-infused vodka for some of our citrus drinks, raspberry vodka, lemongrass-infused gin and a garlic- and Calabrian chile-infused vodka for our Bloody Marys."
Pig manager Frank Dorsey says: "I tried a bacon-infused vodka...You cook the bacon and put it in the vodka for, like, three weeks. Then, you have to skim off the fat that congeals and floats to the top."
Chip says: "Right now I've got a jar of tequila on my front porch being infused by a hot dog."
Our picture of the week comes to us from the Pitch's review of last Friday's Taylor Swift show. It's a close-up shot of her crotch during the performance:
Chip: "I just felt a swift movement in my pants, if you catch my pun."
Tonight's Desmond-centric episode of Lost has fanboys besides themselves. Here's our vote for obsessive fanboy comment of the day from AICN:
finky089 says: "Did anyone notice in last week's episode, in the scene when Keamy is in Sun's room telling Omar to get "what's his name" (Mikhail), he says, referring to Mikhail, that he is "Danny's friend". I wonder, could Keamy be talking about Daniel Faraday in this "sideways" timeline? In the "on-Island" timeline, we know Faraday is connected to Widmore through Hawking. And we know that Widmore was connected to Keamy. Seems reasonable that Keamy might know Faraday in the "sideways" timeline."
Richard: "Of COURSE we noticed. It's obvious."
