Shattered dreams @ Capt. Larry's

Last night I learned a valuable lesson: Never get your hopes up when it comes to bacon vodka.

I'd heard it through the grapevine that Capt. Larry's (601 E. Fort Ave.) had a jar of mystical bacon vodka.

This stuff can cure cancer (and tastes great too!).

It's best chased with a scrambled egg-tini, I'm told.

But alas, they had run out.

So I had a double espresso vodka shot instead, and cried inside.

The old Van Gough staple. Can't go wrong.

I wonder if any bar has brunch with bacon vodka?

But the bartender was a hottie!
Nobody pours better than a Catholic girl.

Sam- its REALLY not as good as it sounds! Actually, its god aweful! I tried it- or rather, I tried to try it, and almost yacked all over everywhere. It is the exception that proves the rule that bacon makes everything better- and I personally believe that Bacon wrapped Bacon would be the best Hors D'vours ever! Stick with the Van Gogh.

Also- nice pic of Chris W

Did I hear through the grapevine that you might try making some?

Thats terribly depressing. I'll probably still try some, should I find it, just to say I did. However it'll be a pale victory, already knowing ahead of time that it'll suck.

Ah well, back to the bacon flavored everything else.

Bacon vodka seems as ill advised as SkittleBrau. Trust me on the latter.

works well in a Bloody but not so sure about anything else... BUT - should I ever have the chance to open my favorite idea for a restaurant 'BACON, BACON, BACON' it will definitely be behind the bar!
