Only in Gotham: I’ll have Batman Straight Up, and Put Him in a Dirty GlassMay 9, 2014
A quick follow up on that Gotham blog a few months back.
I’ve said for a long time – since the Fashion Week Riot of 2012, I believe – that if you’re writing stories of Gotham City and you never get Batman out of those grimy alleys, you’re not doing it right. New York is a tapestry of the unimaginably funky, a kaleidoscope of the creatively unbelievable, and a ragout of the eclectically weird. It’s fine to have the perv in the subway, the banger urinating in the alley and the homeless guy on 14th Street, but if that’s all you’ve got, damnit man, you’ve got no business calling yourself a writer, because you’re walking past THE BEST PARTS to show us crap we’ve seen a thousand times before.
If you’re not in the city, don’t despair. Open a new tab on your browser and Like a l’il ol Facebook page called Humans of New York. You’ll find it a revelation.
If you are in the city, get your coat. This watering hole in the NoMad Hotel in Chelsea is having more fun with Batman than you are, and we need to fix that.
Ordering via pop icon tarot card. Our favorite vigilante represents Dark, that makes sense. I have no idea what Pammy’s supposed to represent. Natural? (There aren’t a lot of unnatural alcohols, are there?) Grassy? Green? Flowery? The only thing that makes any sense for a cocktail is fruity, and you wouldn’t use her for that. I say we go find out. Who’s with me?
