In the Food Section: A Tiki Tour, Summer Drinks, Last Suppers


Today in the food section, we have a terrific piece by Chris Serico on his tour of local tiki bars. As I read it, I’m right there with him, Hudson River lapping at the shores, fruity rum drink in hand.

Check it out here: A tiki bar tour.

So that’s for drinking out. If you’re drinking in, or rather, at home, you’ll want to check out the story from the AP on flavored simple syrups. You can do anything from raspberries to lemon verbena to chilis, and mix it (or not) with a bunch of different boozes. Fun! Here’s the link: Cool summer drinks.

And we have a theater-food story from theater writer Peter D. Kramer this week. He talks about the “history chef,” and his book on famous people’s last meals, including Julius Caesar. No. It wasn’t a salad. Here’s the link: “Their Last Suppers.”
