A Poppin' Mardi Gras Bar

If there's one thing me and my crew cannot resist it's a friggin pop-up bar. Sure they're expensive but they are like a delicate cherry blossom: even more beautiful because they aren't destined to last. (Is bar poet a job?) This time the venue was Molly's in Soulard, and the theme was Mardi Gras. It was appropriately named Carnival.

I went for the "Bourbon Street Smash: rye Bulleit bourbon, brown sugar simple syrup, bitters, muddled luxardo cherries and oranges garnished with candied pecans and a music note." As far as $12 old fashioneds go it was good.

I also ordered a plate of "Cajun fried deviled eggs: breaded and fried eggs topped with deviled yolks."

Lydia ordered a "King Cake Martini: vanilla Stoli, Rumchata, and amaretto with a sprinkle of cinnamon, a green sugar rim and a party crown." I borrowed the party crown to cover up my bald spot.

We then quickly walked to a place where drinks are not $12. The end.
