Tupperware & the Walking Dead

This just in! Well, fairly recently.

On this day in 1996, the remains of a prehistoric man were discovered near Kennewick, Washington. No, they’re not mine: I’ve never been to Washington State.

Children’s author/illustrator Beatrix Potter (1866) was born today as was cartoonist Jim Davis (1945). Peter Rabbit and Garfield will be forever thankful.

Crooner Rudy Vallee (1901) shares this birthday with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (1929).

Cincinnati Reds announcer Marty Brennaman (1942) was born today. This one has NOT belonged to the Reds much lately, alas.

Did you ever wonder where Tupperware came from? You probably thought it was discovered in the prehistoric remains of Kennewick, Washington. Well, you’d be wrong. It was invented by Earl Tupper who was born this day in 1907. Parties are a big of Liquor Barn’s raison d’être and who can resist a Tupperware party? Happy birthday, Earl!

Today is National Tree-Planting Day in Australia as well. They grow upside down there.

Our “Cocktail 4 2day”

Will celebrate the incorporation of the City of Miami, Florida on this day in 1896. Miami is famous for so much, but nothing is more intriguing to me than its use as the set for the low-low-low budget horror classic; “Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things”. Good grief! With prehistoric remains in Washington and the walking dead in Florida, I suppose the obvious choice for a drink recipe here would be a “Zombie”, but I think not. We’ll go with something else that Miami’s famous for;

Miami Vice Cocktail

5 oz. Bacardi 151 Rum

1 pkg. frozen pina colada mix

1 pkg. frozen daiquiri mix

  1. Mix pina colada with 2 ½ oz. of rum with ice. Set aside.
  2. Mix daiquiri with 2 ½ oz. of rum with ice.
  3. While frozen, add pina colada mix to a cocktail glass. Add the daiquiri mix on top, keeping it separated from the pina colada mix. Serve.

Now, go plant a tree.

Cheers,

Roger
