A Small Find
Tuesday, May 20, 2014
On book tour there are always small pockets of time when you find yourself wandering around your host city, popping in and out of little shops. When I'm in Seattle I always try to make my way to Melrose Market, for some of the wonderful oysters (and geoducks, and spot prawns) at Taylor's Shellfish. But before I sit down to feast on seafood, I go upstairs to the quirky little shop called Butter Home. They always have interesting objects.
This time it was this cocktail game.
It's a small jar containing a set of tiny cubes. Five are the colorful ingredient dice on top. Then there are these black and white dice: they tell you what mixers to add, how to prepare the drink, and which glass to use.
It's all very silly. But I can imagine that it would really shake up a slow party.
