I was being introduced to the notion of cocktail geeking today (specifically, people who research and revive historical cocktails and of LUPEC), and so, why not? Let’s talk cocktail geeking.

This is also an open thread for general discussion on any topic, as long as it’s within the comment policy.

We have open threads not just to look at boys and or pets or allow you to rant about my repeated invocation of the feminist cat-lover stereotype, but also so that people can comment on older posts (comments close automatically after two weeks), get in touch with us, or discuss anything else that falls within our comment guidelines. Don’t apologize for being off topic here: there is no required topic! (But if you feel really guilty about it, you can link some cute puppy pictures. I won’t complain.)

Those of you who follow me elsewhere may notice I wrote this post originally for cuwise, but I love the song so much and we’re overdue for an open thread so I’m re-using the post for this open thread. We try to have these regularly to give you a chance to talk about whatever you’d like. So nothing is off-topic here as long as you stay within our comment guidelines.
