I work in a bar that is upstairs in a venue, meaning not on the entry level floor, yet, people always ask me, “How do you get downstairs?”
Tonight is the last night of league play for Marc Bowlin’. We are currently in first place. Hopefully, in the next couple weeks, we can clench the title so we can bowl for free next season. Wish Wildcat luck.
Liquid Marijuana Dealer Busted in Brooklyn
A Bensonhurst man was arrested on Wednesday for selling a dark green liquid mixture of alcohol and marijuana. Yes, liquid marijuana! It’s news to us, and Capt. Gerard Dowling of the Manhattan South narcotics division says “it has not been seen around here before.” The suspect, 32-year-old Anthony Briordy, told cops a four-ounce dose of it was stronger than one “marijuana cigarette,” as the Times daintily puts it.
Briordy had eight Mason jars of the stuff in his apartment, plus cocaine, Percocet, Xanax, oxycodone, ecstasy and ketamine. Quite the collection. An undercover officer started buying from him a couple of months ago as he allegedly peddled drugs from his car, and this week he finally invited them into his apartment, where he brewed the distilled marijuana resins fermented with 180-proof grain alcohol. According to the Post (which goes with the headline “Stir the Pot”) Briordy faces 22 felony counts of drug dealing.
Briordy allegedly told detectives he was selling about 16 ounces of the substance for $120; the liquid could then be mixed with juice, alcohol, or surreptitiously poured into punchbowls at government functions to bring about world peace. Up in Canada, you can also purchase (with a prescription) a liquid marijuana extract called Sativex that’s sprayed into the mouth. And preliminary Google search turned up this recipe for extracting the essential oils from hemp—the instructions seem similar to what police describe as Briordy’s method, but clearly further research is called for.
My favorite part is that the man says, ” the liquid could then be mixed with juice, alcohol, or surreptitiously poured into punchbowls at government functions to bring about world peace”
Last night I made a sandwich that my friend Sarah made for me a few months ago. It had grilled veggies, fresh mozzarella, balsamic vinegar and olive oil and was served on the most delicious ciabatta bread from a place called Caputo’s (look for it in Carroll Gardens). Now, I did not have the Caputo’s bread but it was just as good. I also had to add chicken as Todd wouldn’t eat a sandwich without meat. Funny thing is, he was liking the vegetables more than the chicken. Alongside is some Roasted Red Pepper soup I made earlier in the week. There wasn’t much of it left so I added Campbell’s Tomato Soup and some milk. Delicious.
For dessert, I prepared a Pear Tart with Almond Cream Filing. I have been rewatching Twin Peaks recently and have really had a hankering for pie/tart. I was thinking the other day, that is was possibly Twin Peaks that made me want to start baking pies. I never really ate pie growing up but they always looked so efin delicious on the show. I got the recipe out of a dessert book I found in the bargain section at Borders and it is one of my favorite desserts to make. It is usually gone within a couple days. It’s not too sweet and it has almonds, which are, by far, my favorite nut. The recipe actually calls for peaches, but I prefer pears. Todd insisted on having his with ice cream (which I find unnecessary)…
it’s actually not an acceptable tip anywhere in the US
I was in tears looking at these….
When I moved to Brooklyn almost 2 years ago, I couldn’t help but notice some of the products i found at the supermarket. This one is my favorite one. More are above. I base my reasoning on fonts, pictures/drawings or brand name. Sorry the pictures suck so much, they were taken with my budge camera phone. I tried to make them look better with a vintage effect on photoshop.
