Happy birthday, Bloody Mary–

IMG_1159 IMG_1158 IMG_1157BAM!  Here we are sucking down Bloody Marys at the King Cole Bar in the St. Regis Hotel on 55th Street and Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, New York City.  October 5, 2014 was the 80th anniversary of the invention of the Bloody Mary right here in this very bar.  80 years old and these Bloodys still taste damn good.  The original name of this wonderful drink was the Red Snapper, but this was deemed vaguely obscene and the name eventually become the Bloody Mary.  I love Bloody Marys. . .aka “salad in a glass”. . .and I especially love sipping on these in their birthplace.  Google ‘Bloody Mary birthplace–St. Regis Hotel’ to learn the whole story behind this fabulous cocktail. . .mmmm, aaaahh!

I send you octogenarian vibes from the King Cole Bar. . .feel them. . .they will help you live a long and prosperous life.

Sao Paulo street scene–

IMG_0021IMG_0011 IMG_0008 IMG_0010BOOM!  A few glimpses of a tiny part of the massive city of Sao Paulo, Brasil.  It is springtime here now. . .temps are in the 90s F every day. . .the breezes are light and warm. . .not too humid. . .and there is a rhythm in the air–the rhythm of the samba, the national dance of Brasil.  People seem to be sambaing everywhere even though they are just walking along making their way to the bus, to work, or to a restaurant for drinks and a meal with friends.  Things are loose and easy down here. . .a tad flashy. . .easygoing. . .and always stylish.  Me, I’m just a white dude from North America. . .little “style”. . .little rhythm relatively speaking. . .but I always have a great eagerness to learn and experiment–so, I have no trouble getting along in Sao Paulo.  I am confident that you will have no trouble getting along down here as well if you ever find yourself wandering around in the largest city in Brasil lookin’ to fit in. . .jaaaa, muito bom!

I send you warm and rhythmic vibes from Sao Paulo. . .feel them. . .they will put a smile on your face every time.

Workin’ it in Brasil–

IMG_0020 IMG_0001 IMG_0030 IMG_0026POW!  Here we are takin’ care of business in Sao Paulo, Brasil.  Yes, this is the land of the samba, the land of the caipirinha, the land of fejoada, the land of coffee, the land of football (soccer), etc.. . .but this is also the land of hard-working pharmaceutical industry folks doing their part to improve the human condition health-wise, and we are honored to have the opportunity to help a few of them communicate their messages throughout Latin America.  I love doing a little work down here in Sao Paulo, and you will too if you are ever lucky enough to find yourself involved in commerce in this fascinating city.

I send you lively and committed vibes from Sao Paulo. . .feel them. . .they are full of vigor and vitality.

Spanish galleon on the Hudson–

IMG_0720 IMG_0724 IMG_0722 IMG_0725WOW!  Here we have a galleon that actually sailed from Spain to New York City. . .it arrived here yesterday.  I spoke briefly with some crew members who told me that it took them 24 days to make the journey across the Atlantic Ocean.  The crew is actually Spanish. . .so fun!  They also told me that this ship was built in 2009 to help spread some of the culture of Spain around the world. . .just hope that they don’t feel the need to go ‘all the way’ and start pillaging, spreading Christianity to the primitive masses they encounter, and take over the spice trade on the west side of Manhattan. . .we’ve had enough of that stuff.  Just be nice Spaniards and share some of that Jamon Iberico I know you have stashed somewhere below-deck on that ship. . .mmmm, aaaahh!  Salut!!

I send you historic vibes from a Spanish galleon docked on the west side of Manhattan. . .feel them. . .they are worth revisiting.

#1 Sazerac…New Orleans–

photo 4 photo 3 photo 2JAAA!  My favorite Sazerac in New Orleans is served up at the bar in Arnaud’s. . .mmm, aaaahh!  The bar is old, cozy, and warm. . .the bartender is an old hand–been serving up drinks here for many years. . .and the drink itself is potent, tasty, and invigorating–quite possibly my favorite cocktail on planet Earth.  I love the Sazerac at Arnaud’s, and you will too if you ever find yourself wandering around in the French Quarter of NOLA lookin’ for somethin’ good to wet yer whistle with.  Life is short–drink up!

I send you intoxicating vibes from the bar at Arnaud’s. . .feel them. . .they can help you enjoy the passage of time.
