Catching Up

I'm so pleased that our first music video of the year is online! This was the culmination of about four months of work and we're very proud of it. Paul did an amazing job with the editing, Ricky Ritzel wrote a tune I love and Rick Jensen was our arranger and recording engineer. I can't thank them enough, along with Nell Mellon and Otto's Shrunken Head for our bar location shots, Kurt Peterson for his support and rehearsal space, and Cindy Rolenc for hand modeling, since there is only so much editing can accomplish! If you haven't seen it, click here!

If you click the above link to watch the video, you'll notice it takes you to Dailymotion and not YouTube. We've recently begun posting our episodes there, along with YouTube and Facebook, and I have to say they've been WAY more supportive than YouTube has ever been! They're wonderful about retweeting and the music video was even posted on MSN because of them! It has over 2000 views on Dailymotion and under 100 on YouTube. You don't need a math degree to figure that one out!

Tomorrow we're shooting our Cinco de Mayo episode, which will go online Tres de Mayo, but that's not the point. We're thrilled to be working with Sangre de Vida and using their tequilas and mezcal and will have two cocktails in this one!

The costume shop is open!
Finally, I'll be posting more cocktails created in honor of our AIDS Walk New York sponsors later this week. We've been busy creating (and of course drinking) them - just haven't gotten around to posting them yet!

See you soon!
