So I planted a bunch of #catnip all over my backyard here in Brooklyn, because I read that it is something that mosquitoes hate. That’s true, but there is one exception. The Asian Tiger. I hate these little fucks… If I ever had three wishes my first would be …2 girls at the same time, but #2 would be: make every single mosquito in the world large enough and smart enough to feel human emotions. and #3 would be: now torture them all to death in front of each other!
The Asian Tiger Mosquito bitches can bite through clothes, they don’t need actual water to lay eggs (just a moist area) and absolutely nothing other than actual fire keeps them away.
So I’m trimming my catnip and since I don’t own a cat (allergies… I end up bleeding from the eyes ears and nose… yeah it’s not good). I thought I’d dry it to make tea out of. But if anyone wants some let me know.
We were too busy eating BBQ to post any pics on July 4. You know the recipe, but in case you need to see it again: http://pinkymixology.blogspot.com/2012/08/bbq-sauce.html
Cooked by a Yankee… who is a Mets fan.
For any VW fans or if you just like to see old cars, the free (for spectators) Volkswagen “Traffic Jam” Car VW Car Show on Governors Island in New York City will be on Aug., 24, 2014. …actually the ferry to the island costs $2, so there’s that. There are ferries that leave from Manhattan and Brooklyn.
Pulled Beef BBQ Sandwich with homemade BBQ Sauce, homemade Coleslaw and Tater Tots anyone? Thanks to @fsareini for the yummy foto! #homemade #foodiefood
… um… uhhhh… OM NOM NOM NOM!!!!!
You know a cocktail named after this fat bastard is gonna be good. The RENALDO MOON at Pinky Mixology. Using Brazilian Cachaca and Le Tourment Vert Absinthe (or absinthe style liqueur if you want to get technical), we celebrate the rotund personality and “don’t give a fuck” attitude of this reluctant anti-hero. …just go watch the movie he’s in already.

How about some nice Aperture Science bubbly? It will take you to the moon!
Checking out the Lagunitas (La-Goo-Nee-Tas) Night Time limited edition dark ale. While we often go for the Hop Stoopid Ale which they offer, this was too interesting to pass up.
Having a strong presence of “yes we totally dry-hop this thing too” quality that most of the Lagunitas we’ve ever tried have, it’s not as strong as Hop Stoopid, which lets some of the nice dark roast of this ale through. Though this beer is dark, it should by no means be mistaken for a Stout or Porter, as it is a mildly sour bitey ale with a great finish. Not so much the 100% best thing for an 85 degree summer night, Lagunitas NightTime is a great thing to have on the cooler nights when your up in the mountains, when the campfire is going and you’re chowing down on venison steaks.
We will be picking up more just so we can save it for the fall and have it with a nice hearty shepherds pie. And although we hate IPA for purely political reasons, we hope Lagunitas stays around for a long time churning out these great beers.
