Boozy Tuesday, Vol. 2

It’s that time of week again, a dreadful distance far from Friday with no resounding promise that that weekend will ever come.  Fear not, for here is a daily dose of cocktails + culture to quell those Tuesday blues.

This week was particularly thrilling with the final match of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.  I don’t generally consider myself to be a dedicated follower of sports + such, but I love the energy it brings to the streets, to the people, to the whole city.  Everyone comes together to root for their team, finding camaraderie in their fellow fans + initiating friendly feuds of the opposing persuasion.  And the final match between Argentina + Germany certainly generated some cup craziness in the Angeles streets.  In honor of the European victors, this week’s recipe and cultural cues are inspired by the traditions of Germany; a lesson in liquor + lifestyle from Deutschland .  Cheers to the champions!


WEAR///Inspired by the traditional wears of the men + maidens of Germany, the dirndl, the lederhosen, + the alpine hat…suspenders, full skirts, buckles, brimmed hats, corsets, knee-high socks, white lace, black + red, leather shorts, ruffles, clogs.


WATCH/// Bend It Like Beckham, Run Lola Run, Goodbye! Lenin, The Miracle of Bern.
