Bar Brady's Friday Drink Recipe - VERNORS SAKETINI

Well - its Friday and that means another fabulous installment of Bar Brady's Friday Drink Recipes and this one sounds just right for a blizzardy friday lunch like today...enjoy!

Vernors Saketini

One of Detroit’s healthy and delicious classics.
Well not really a classic or to healthy
But still.. its’ got booze and Motor City roots - enough said.

One bottle of good sake
¼ cup fresh chopped ginger
Two liter bottle of Vernors ginger ale
Some ice

1) Drop you chopped ginger into the bottle of sake.

Let it infuse in fridge over night.

2) Fill your pitcher with ice

3) Pour in ½ bottle of gingery sake. Stir it up.

4) Strain sake into Mason jars (that means sake no ice)

4) Add Vernors to taste.

Tips:
Try adding a strip of crystallized ginger for a garnish
(chew yellow stuff comes in bags)
I’d stick with the regular Vernors on this one
Diet will make the drink too bitter

MOTORCITYBLOG READERS RULE!



Got this the other day from a reader who snapped this shot outside Art Battle 08

Thanks for looking so proud besides our makeshift signage .... you are so much cooler than our sign! haha!


along with the pic was an email that went something like this....


"....unlike most other event focused websites in Detroit, MCB seems to appeal to a very broad range of readers.....the listings are across the board and other than the pure desire to provide promotion of "fun events" it doesn't seem to have an agenda driven by one specific type or style of entertainment plus you guys are not selling anything of yours or your friends to boot - are you for real?"

Well - yes we are missy! For real as a wet dream so uncurl yourself from the fetal position and wipe that suprise off your face! MCB is sending you a suprise pack of PROMO CDs just for putting up with that smart-ass remark. Keep on reading! Thanks!

Check this review from MCB's roaming on call show-goer Jeff Nolan:

DANCE FOR YOUR LIFE!

Crystal Castles, Health, & Charlie Slick @ the Magic Stick

Tuesday Feb 26by MCB contributor Jeff Nolan

Arriving fashionably late, I tragically missed my friend Andy's band Charlie Slick. Charlie Slick is a very unique band to see live becausein addition to Charlie's electronic beats and chirping into the mike,Andy dances about operating a light tower, a strobe, a smoke machine,and a bubble machine while throwing glitter and confetti all about. Andy is leaving the band after two or three more shows, so if you areinterested the next to last time to see Charlie Slick as they are is Friday, Feb. 29 @ the Corktown Tavern.

Health is a noise-punk band from LA with a sound reminiscent of theLiars or Le Fly Pan Am. Their songs build off of crazy noises emittedfrom distorted guitars and stomping primal drum beats. To this they addodd timing changes, screaming vocals, and a lot of energy on stage. They played tightly and all members were fairly on point, but it waslacking some thing or element to really bring it all together. I metone of the guitarists and the drummer and while they didn't have much tosay, they were both very friendly.

After the Health set, the entire Magic Stick went dark for a minute orso before some electronic noise started coming through the PA. After itbuilt up for a while Crystal Castles flipped on the strobe lights andlaunched straight into a song you couldn't help but dance to. It wentvery much like this for the rest of the show. Crystal Castle consistsof a keyboardist who plays catchy hooks over a steady drummer and a girlrunning around the stage and into the crowd who occasionally providessome vocals. I've never seen the bouncers at the Magic Stick pull theband members away from the audience before, its usually the other wayaround. The entire dance floor was sweaty and moving with peopledancing more enthusiastically than the band, also usually the other wayaround.

Overall it was a great show, made better by all the fun people there, amillion random friends I bumped into, and on top of it the bartendergave my lady friend and I free drinks.

Awesome.

HERE IS THE SCREENING ORDER:
A Slow and Steady Drip [trailer] – SuperHouse Pictures (01:02) "A Slow and Steady Drip" is about a businessman who takes a business trip, leaving his wife to deal with a leaky bathroom faucet. The leak serves as a metaphor for the issues in their marriage. The script for "A Slow and Steady Drip" originated from a screenwriting incubation program called Project LightStand. http://www.superhousemedia.org/
LaughcrY [trailer] – TriOmega Productions (01:08) Written and directed by Matthew Peach. Some memories return in an instant, with focus sharper than the clearest photo. The people who’ve affected our lives never really disappear. YASAMIN spent eight years dodging a single question. When she unexpectedly runs into ex-lover LENA , will she finally get her answer? Stifled in a loveless marriage almost by default, will Lena forgive Yasamin for leaving all those years ago? They’ll throw their lives into chaos for a chance to find out. www.myspace.com/triomega
Chicken Sushi – Rich Jackson (01:30) Written and directed by Rich Jackson, “Chicken Sushi” is a spoof TV commercial that appears in the feature mocumentary, "Making Buttprints." Jackson designed and animated the chicken character, recorded the chicken and announcer voice, and also composed and performed the "Asia-billy" theme song. “Chicken Sushi” won the "People's Choice" award at the 2007 SEMAFX Animation Showcase. It was also chosen as a first round finalist for Steven Spielberg's "On The Lot" TV contest and was screened at the 2007 Detroit River Days Festival. (This short is being screened again due to the technical difficulties experienced during the January Mitten Movie Project.) http://www.makingbuttprints.com/
Dear Son – Directed by Chris Hoyle (04:00) “Dear Son” showcases the special relationship between a father and son. Chris Hoyle is a student at the Motion Picture Institute of Michigan.
Page 99 – A Ramp Production (07:14) Directed by Christopher Oniciu.
The Norm – SuperHouse Pictures (09:51) Directed by Greg Zonca. "The Norm" was originally produced as part of the National Film Challenge -- a film competition in which teams from around the country must write, shoot, and edit an 8-minute film in just one weekend (with certain requirements). There were four elements that SuperHouse had to work with were: (1) Character – Cheeks, a celebrity impersonator, (2) Prop – bubble wrap, (3) Line – “It’s impossible not to look,” and (4) Genre – comedy. Also screening is a behind the scenes of “The Norm.” http://www.superhousemedia.org/
Disease Island – Vendetta Studios and David Lehre Productions (08:27) Directed by David Lehre. A ridiculous and hilarious take on reality TV shows like “Survivor.” http://www.davidlehre.com/
American Piety – Mass Effect Productions (29:00) Directed by Steven Karageanes. This award-winning short takes a comedic look at what happens when a misguided man with more faith in his iPod than God gets hit by a car and goes to purgatory, and the only way to get back to Earth is choose a religion from three speed-dating sessions with Buddhism, Islam, and Christianity. "American Piety" is packed with action, wit, and even tango dancing. With a top-notch original music soundtrack, "American Piety" will provoke thought as well as laughs. This is the world premiere of “American Piety.” www.myspace.com/tantricferret
