Christopher Snowdon has new book coming out, The Art of Suppression: Pleasure, Panic, and Prohibition Since 1800. His Velvet Glove, Iron Fist is fantastic, so I’m definitely ordering this.
One more vestige of Prohibition falls in California: Bartenders can now infuse their own spirits without fear of being fined by regulators. And in Oregon, the OLCC has given the green light to a temporary cocktail cart.

Every libertarian in the country has linked to this GQ profile of Gary Johnson, but just in case you missed it…
A nice write-up of the Transatlantic Mai Tai at Food Shed.
