Oh, Sam..."The Bad Decision to End All Bad Decisions" (or "The Worst Decision" as John normally calls it) wasn't so terrifying.

And this comes from ME, the guy to whom Bad Decisions bartender Christian Parent recently said, "You realize you drink like an underage white girl, don't you?"

Loved the Metropolitan and plan to order it every time I make it to Bad Decisions until the pumpkin syrup is gone.

Watching the Bad Decision to End All Bad Decisions shooters being taken was the only bad part of the night, haha

The Nightshift was HEAVENLY.

The Green Turtle bombs were pretty good as well.

Are these drinks going to remain on the menu or were they just for last night?

babs, I believe these drinks were a one-shot deal, made especially for the Social. However, if you bring a copy of the drink list to John and sweet-talk him, maybe he'll make you one.

The Samos was delicious!

Any drink that strikes your fancy can be made next time you visit. These are all ingredients I have on hand at all times...

I think bars should add these to their permanent menus.
Someone...make it happen.
