It was a warm and sunny day in Los Angeles yesterday, right around 70 degrees. After walking 3.5 miles in the sun, I was sure happy to sit down at that cool, dark bar and order a refreshing cocktail! I love Manhattans, but in no way could they be considered to be refreshing! But people swear that Greyhounds are quite refreshing, so it was the perfect time to temporarily put aside my snobbishness about vodka, and finally Go Greyhound.
|I expected to find the bar looking like this at 3 PM on a Thursday, but it was actually full of Manny Aguirre fans!|
A friend had tipped me off that maybe I should try eating a Cara Cara Orange, as kind of a midway fruit, between oranges and grapefruits. So, before I left on our trek, I energized myself with a Cara Cara Orange. And I would agree that it is somewhere in between and orange and a grapefruit. I didn't like it at first, but by bite 3, I was into it. I would willingly eat one again!
|Looks like a grapefruit, but none of that awful after taste!|
Oh, and one more unrelated plug for Musso and Frank. My husband had Manny make him a Sidecar. He drinks them often, but neither of us had ever had a Manny Sidecar before. (Manny gave me a little martini glass of Surplus Sidecar to drink, along with my Greyhound.) Forget about making the Best Martini in America.... he should be known instead for making the Best Sidecar in the Universe! Amazing, and I highly recommend it to one and all!
|I must say, it's more fun to ride in this Sidecar than to Go Greyhound!|
