    Well, I have been to Manhattan a few times, but I don't recall ever drinking one.
    The whiskey-based counterpoint to the gin-based Martini. Sweet vermouth instead of dry, cherry instead of olive, same glass.

    • My martinis are a good gin like Bombay Sapphire and a dash of dry vermouth with an Anchovy or blue cheese olive.

      My Manhattan recipe I found on Twitter from a business writer. A bit more complicated but excellent. I use sweet vermouth.

      • From the NYT the latest on: "You can't fix stupid."
        A motorcycle rally in a resort area of Missouri is raising fears that the thousands of people who are expected to flock to the event this weekend could spread the coronavirus during the festivities, which include stops at bars and live concerts.
        The 14th annual BikeFest Lake of the Ozarks, which began on Wednesday and runs through Sunday, comes a month after a larger motorcycle rally in Sturgis, S.D. led to a surge of cases in multiple states.

        • Went back to the Gym in SW Florida after a 3 month lay off. Was curious if anything had changed. Nope. I was the only one with a mask....again.

          • “People are not idiots — they won’t come here if they’re sick,” said Stacey Maddox, who came to the rally with her teenage children. “I’m not going to just stay home scared.”
            A rally goer. Great parental model.

                One of Wall Street's most storied 1980s-era dealmakers is selling his jet, yacht, Humvee stake & artworks, among other things. Skeptics doubt his claims he just wants a simpler life. “If he’s selling his art, it’s because he needs cash.”

                    • What?.... so until this move the person “effectively in charge of the health department's personnel while playing a role in shaping policies in the middle of a pandemic” was an undergrad at the University of Michigan this spring?!



                      Trump administration shakes up HHS personnel office after tumultuous hires

                      The move leaves Health Secretary Alex Azar with more control over his department, which has been rocked by personnel scandals in recent weeks.

                      Newman already has spent more than three months detailed to the global media agency as its chief of staff, which meant that Granito — an undergraduate at the University of Michigan as recently as this spring — had been in charge of the health department's personnel while playing a role in shaping policies in the middle of a pandemic.

                            tried to encourage Trump supporters to wear masks. Here's how it went: "I'm trying to make masks in America great again and I've got President Trump's masks," Husted said as he whipped out Trump-branded masks. He was immediately & loudly booed.
