Happy holidays to you and yours from DrinksBurgh. Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Festivus, or like me, Saturnalia have a good drink on us. Now then I must be off... On Dasher and Dancer, Comet and Cupid, on Boyd and Blair, Arsenal and Wigle!

While Dish Osteria serves primarily Italian/Mediterranean food, their drink selection runs a little more classic and exotic, including one of the only caipirinhas you will find in Pittsburgh. Mastering and serving up these drinks is Raelynn Harshman.

Sean D. Enright is the General Manger for one of the hottest restaurants in Pittsburgh, Spoon. To set about creating a cocktail menu that equaled the skill and creativity of the dinner menu Sean assembled a team of all star bartenders to sling the booze. Sean is also one of the founding members of the Pittsburgh Chapter of the US Bartender's Guild.

So... It turns out that there is another website out there called Drink Pittsburgh. It seems to be nice enough site, all about rating your neighborhood bars, a noble goal to be sure. So to avoid confusion and issues later on we're packing up the booze and moving the bar over to the new site www.DrinksBurgh.blogspot.com. Please update your favorites, bookmarks, etc to go to the new site, though I will continue to post a note over here for a while that the new post is up.

Dr. Bamboo, (Craig Mrusek), runs the blog of the same name from his home in tropical Pittsburgh, PA. After being inspired by a Mr. Boston Cocktail guide and Kaiser Penguin the good doctor has established himself as a force in the online cocktail scene. He was named one of “The 25 Most influential Online Cocktail Pioneers,” in Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails.

Went down to the Strip District, which is deceptively named in that the amount of Burlesque shows is shockingly small. To make up for this lack of tassels I stopped in at the Pittsburgh Public Market and picked up a Growler of Nunkin Ale from East End Brewing Co.

So here is The Plan for this blog. Pittsburgh has a number of interesting personalities and projects going on relating to drinks. Whether that is the increasing number of micro-breweries or the innovative bartenders creating (or rediscovering) cocktails there is a lot happening. This blog is to show the people behind the drinks. I'm looking to get started with it soon and will update as i can hopefully once a week when I get churning, but once a month at least.
