A simple autumn cocktail, just brut champagne and a fig to garnish. That’s it everyone, what else can I say in this post? Let me try. Why do I need to get so festive, even if it's just adding a simple slice of fig in my champagne glass? Because I just love the repetition of the seasons. As I have attempted to articulate many times before, I think there is something so comforting about knowing what to expect. It's as if the changing of the weather and the traditions we attach to it provides some type of familiarity we all crave. It tends to remind me of the good things that happened in previous years and there is just something so satisfying about that. Of course not everyone is reminded of great memories around holidays, however, the fact that it's the same season doesn't have to take away from it being a new year too and a new opportunity. And so when I go searching for fresh figs, dried slices of blood oranges and cinnamon sticks to garnish the same cocktails I drink all year round, it's both fresh and exciting but also a great reminder of all those good times. And sometimes that's just a the trick to take an average day and make it just a little more special. Enjoy.

  1. It's hard to have any complaints about this place. It's easy to get a drink since they actually keep enough bartenders working at once, and at venues in Los Angeles you'll almost always find a place to sit. I love the vibe, the area, the people and the food at this place.
