Nightcaps 2013

I'm finding myself gravitating toward more bitter, complex, but low-alcohol drinks to finish out an evening. They're challenging enough to sip slowly, but aren't high-proof enough to foul my sleep. Stephen Cole of The Violet Hour's Bitter Giuseppe (Cynar, Carpano Antica, lemon, orange bitters) is a particular favorite.

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
