There is something about a Martini,
A tingle remarkably pleasant;
A yellow, a mellow Martini;
I wish I had one at present.
There is something about a Martini,
Ere the dining and dancing begin,
And to tell you the truth,
It is not the vermouth -
I think that perhaps it’s the gin.

Ogden Nash


Drink Up Dallas!

The quintessential question...where can you get a good drink in Dallas? Better yet, where can I get the “Perfect Martini”? Well, to be honest it can be a moving target, so I’ll do my best to critique my latest, greatest drink-gasms.
Serving the perfect cocktail can turn a bartender into a new celebrity, so I must be careful and not overly effusive. Maybe it's the post Superbowl Blues or the economy. Maybe it's this lingering winter bogging us down. Whatever the reason (and most likely, it's all of the above), something is driving us to drink and everyone is asking where do we get this mystical “Perfect Martini”. To find out who's leading the pack, my team of ace imbibers canvass Dallas every week, sipping highball and low in search of the best people and places that shake it all up right.
Bottoms up. List to come....more drinking must be done first. Stay tuned.
