Default Any Reports from Repeal Day Party at Proof in DC ?

Just wondering how the party at Proof in DC went --hope Ed got his killer Mai Tai from Adam. I had two excellent cocktails at CityZen that night (both tropical in theme, though only one with rum...) --a "Jack and Spice" (Jack Daniels, Allspice Dram, egg white and some other stuff in beautiful long stem coupe glass) and a "Wooden Leg" (or something like that)--named in honor of Trader Vic's artificial leg--had Mount Gay Eclipse gold, Velvet Falernum, lime, etc.--very tasty !

As the saying goes, a good time was had by all. Here's a link to the Repeal Day event page on this site with a couple of links to other sites.

No I didn't get the killer Mai Tai I was hoping for but Adam at Proof did make another wonderful rum drink that was the highlight of the Repeal Day eve festivities, if you don't count the Whisky Punch on the bar at PS7 where we were doing a bit of work to make sure everything was in order for the big night.

I saw a lot of old friends and met a few new friends as well. Can't wait to get back to Washington DC and enjoy some more fun in the capitol.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
