Sankey Sour: bourbon, aperol, fresh orange juice, egg whites, angostura bitters and house made sour mix. Happy hour $8 Percy’s & Co., Seattle WA
The cocktails at Percy’s and Co. are pretty frickin’ amazing! They make all their tinctures, purees, and sour mix in house so they’re not your generic mixers. The combination of flavors in each cocktail tastes great and they’re all expertly made.

The Eagle, 1971, painted steel, Alexander Calder, Olympic Sculpture Park.
Two eggs scrambled with diced ham, onion, bell pepper, served with homefried potatoes and 9-grain wheat toast. $12 Judy’s Cafe, San Francisco CA
We came across this busy brunch spot in the Marina because another restaurant we were planning on eating at was closed. The menu items were pretty basic and standard fare. The Denver scramble was ok. There was A LOT of it so you definitely got your money’s worth. The potatoes were delicious though and I couldn’t stop eating them! They were soft and tender and super flavorful. The service, on the other hand, was sporadic, confused and difficult to flag down.
Mimosas with orange juice and grapefruit juice. Each $9
Muddled pineapple, Skyy ginger vodka, orange juice, grapefruit, lime and soda. $12 The Tropicale, Palm Springs CA
Omg, our waitress was a bit wild and crazy, but very entertaining! She was definitely working hard for her tip which I can appreciate. This cocktail was more mellow than I expected (a good thing) and very refreshing. Mmm…
Rum, grapefruit, lime, splash of Luxardo over ice. $9 Fork Cafe, San Francisco CA
This cocktail was really refreshing! It had a beautiful color and definitely evoked a place with a warmer climate where Hemmingway might have traveled. If it was a little less sweet, I would have love it even more.
Window display at IXIA, Market Street. IXIA has the best floral sculptures. This dress is made completely of plant material!
Whiskey, grapefruit, Dolin Blanc (vermouth de Chambery), St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram rum, soda. $10 Mission Bowling Club, San Francisco CA
This cocktail was delicious – a great combination of whiskey, fruit, and spice! It was a warm day outside so it was nice to have this yummy drink to relax with in the shade.
Mission Bowling Club entrance. I’d never been here before and completely missed it walking by across the street. The front patio area is gated so the bowling alley is difficult to see if you’re not paying attention.
Planter’s Punch. Old Brigand rum, grapefruit, lime and orange juices with a dash of Angostura bitters. Garnished with an orange slice and maraschino cherry. A longer punch! $14 (Barbados dollar)
Waterfront connection. Old Brigand rum, pina colada, Galliano, white creme de cacao, orange juice. Garnished with a pineapple slice and maraschino cherry. $16 (Barbados dollar) Waterfront Cafe, Bridgetown, BARBADOS
Another yummy set of beautiful cocktails. The service at Waterfront Cafe was very friendly and perfectly situated along the inlet near the Chamberlain Bridge.
Random elephant ride at the Highland Adventure Weather Station in the middle of the island. It was probably defunct, but I like the weathered look of it. We had taken a taxi tour around the island with a hilariously outspoken driver named Angela. We learned that she doesn’t eat rabbit because a skinned rabbit looks like a human baby, and she doesn’t eat shark because she had recently witnessed a butchered shark with a human hand in its belly. Lol!
