announcing The Art of the Shim on Facebook 2013
The Art of the Shim: Low-Alcohol Cocktails to Keep You Level is a celebration of being able to fit more drinks into an evening without getting stupid, sad, or sick. Smart drinking doesn’t require giving up cocktails or alcohol entirely, nor must we resign ourselves to a monotonous diet of simplistic, syrupy concoctions. Fans of sophisticated beverages can switch into a lower gear without giving up everything they love about cocktails. In brief, this book advocates more drink, less drunk.
Stay tuned for more information about the book and when it will be available.
Who is creating the recipes? The book will include a mix of recipes old and new, by some of the best bartenders in the world.
Will it be illustrated? Yes! With gorgeous photographs of each of the featured drinks.
What format will it be in? Trade paperback and a variety of ebook formats, including a version suited for tablets.
the glorious new credenza 2013
We've been wanting a beautiful piece of furniture to hold the media devices for years now, but hadn't found the right one. After seeing our friends B.J. and Beverly's new credenza we headed the next day to the store they bought it from—Antiques & Modern, right next to Ashby BART—and found this beauty. Love it!

First Bibulo.us Facebook post 2013
Four years ago, on the Bibulo.us cocktail blog, we praised low-alcohol cocktails and dubbed them "shims" (http://www.bibulo.us/2008/12/in-praise-of-the-shim.html). Now it's time to bring together in one book some of the best examples of this kind of drink.
