Last Friday, August 10th, I celebrated my birthday. Today, I joined AARP. Now before I get all sorts of “old timer” jokes (looking your way SeanMike) I’d like to state for the record I haven’t reached the century mark. Yet.
No, I’m proud to let everyone know that as of this week, I am the official cocktail writer for the AARP Blog. Each week I will be contributing an article on cocktails, their history, recipes and the general state of cocktail culture in the US.
So what does this mean for Scofflaw’s Den? Nothing but good things! First, the additional publicity and readership should be great. More importantly, I’ll still be writing here and covering home bartending, original recipes, the DC cocktail and restuarant world, our classes and other special events and my hijinks in the booze world. If anything, you’ll be seeing more articles around here from me because I’ll be spending more time focused on the spiritous plane. Occassionally I’ll cross post between the sites, but I plan to keep that at a minimum.
So if you’re interested in what’s going on over at the AARP Blog, check in each week!
