Re: “Scott Smith, of East End Brewing Company, lets his baby bird fly with can distribution

Oxygen doesn't skunk beer. It oxidizes it. Only sunlight can make a beer skunky. Get your stuff together, Scott. You should know this.

Hey Paul,

Re: “Pennsylvania liquor stores offer more than meets the eye

What this commonwealth needs is legislative reform. That way I can buy my brandy from Cogo's.

Re: “Pennsylvania liquor stores offer more than meets the eye

However, if there is a libation you just can’t live without, a trip to New Jersey is the way to go.

Fixed it for you.

Yes, the PLCB can't stock more items when they need 10 facings of Vladimir vodka and 4 feet worth of Franzia Chard in every store.

Re: “City Paper’s food-and-drink section has undergone some changes

Great idea. We've moved from Pgh but read this weekly and always make notes for visits back, which always include checking out the latest restaurant, bar, brewery, etc. So, the more intel the better.

Re: “Rosé’s comeback continues

Love an article about rosé! It is my go-to drink of the summer. My new favorite that I recently found is called Maison Marcel. It is light and refreshing and perfect for summer. Check it out at

Re: “Ice is an overlooked but all-important cocktail ingredient

Negronis are served over ice that is supposed to melt as you drink it. The dilution is supposed to make the Negroni taste even better!

Just a fun fact.

Re: “A new Lawrenceville joint focuses on shots and beers

Yeah I've been there that place before it's really nice inside. I definitely wouldn't call it bro-chic and also i'm pretty sure that isn't a word. sigh. I guess good journalists are hard to find.

Re: “Hitchhiker Brewing Enters City Limits

That would be great! We've enjoyed visiting the Mt. Lebanon Hitchhiker location, but we're on the South Side more often than we're in Mt. Leb.

Re: “This was the year that everyone realized Pittsburgh has a food scene

In my view, craft cocktails and innovative American/fusion cuisine fit right into Pittsburgh's deeper roots, specifically the "Golden Era" Pittsburgh which generated great wealth, and also attracted ethnically-diverse immigrants, and created great fine art, and great pop art, and so on.

I agree not every drink in this town should cost $10 or more. But I think Pittsburgh is blossoming in this era in part because there really is a natural fit between Pittsburgh and the ever-growing number of people who are now craving cultural connection to history and stability blended with humanism and optimism, all loosely covered by words like "authentic," and in fact words like "craft" and "innovative."

Re: “Doing eggnog one better

The opening of Damon Runyon's short story "Dancing Dan's Christmas":

"NOW one time it comes on Christmas, and in fact it is the evening before Christmas, and I am in Good Time Charley Bernstein's little speakeasy in West Forty-seventh Street, wishing Charley a Merry Christmas and having a few hot Tom and Jerrys with him.
This hot Tom and Jerry is an old time drink that is once used by one and all in this country to celebrate Christmas with, and in fact it is once so popular that many people think Christmas is invented only to furnish an excuse for hot Tom and Jerry, although of course this is by no means true...."

A great Christmas story, and a great Christmas drink.
