Locally infamous!

Just a fun bit of bilge, Reynolés Galley was featured in the most recent On The Rocks column in the Portland Tribune.  I’m going to have to go hit the store for a physical copy… to send to me mum, of course.

On the rocks: The bar’s where you are

It is the future, the distant future

Just a quick note, a new feature has been added to the Galley.

Tiki Bar PC

Leaping forward into the year 2008, I have installed a computer in the Galley!

What does this mean for the bartender and bartendees?

  • Music Playlist Management without having to synch an iPod, thanks to iTunes sharing!
  • TV/Movie nights, now without having to tire the bartender from going up and down stairs!
  • A menu that people can actually read!
  • CocktailDB at my sticky, booze-soaked fingertips!
  • A soon-to-appear webcam (and possibly brief nudity)!
  • Updating from the bar!

I think the most exciting thing about this is setting up a cocktail menu in PDF format for patrons to browse through. My current menu system is… well, dim, multi-colored lighting and an 11 point font just don’t mix.

Along with this, I’ve got a new section coming up for the site, Concoctioneering! Think of it as a one-stop shop for all your syrups and mixers. If you’ve got something you’ve got questions on, let me know and I’ll cover it.  Just finished a few batches of fun stuff, some Blood Orangecello, Meyer Limoncello, Ginger and Rhubarb Syrups, and even packed about 2 liters of Falernum (spirit, no sugar) into a barrel for aging… expect some interesting notes on that one.

Time to go whip up some more Pa’avaetuli!  Company is coming, and there is drinking to be done!
