|Few things say, "Summer in Chicago" like the lights at Wrigley Field as viewed from the roof.|
To answer the question that the Dilettante's absence has surfaced, no, we have not gone on the wagon. Indeed, what we have done has been to make use of the blog during these oh-too-short summer months, clicking the "summer" tag early and often for rooftime and spontaneous celebrations with friends.
I'm glad to report that this summer, the initial mission of this blog has been successfully accomplished. Looking back over the season, it's clear: our tastes have indeed been expanded. Bourbon is decidedly the new vodka for both the Dilettante and The Partner. And for The Partner, so is gin. So perhaps the best way to bring back the blog is to review some of our summer faves with updates to the original entries for the season's top bevs, discuss some of our new favorite liquors, and suggest some labels.
