Fix One, Another Shows Up

At this point, we may need someone named “Martini” to open their own chain of bars in order to make this trend legit.

I think Martini's was the name of the bar in "It's a Wonderful Life."

Seriously, does no one stop to edit these things?

We're going to need a Martini's side category soon enough.

I'm not sure what's more wrong - a "pint style" martini or the apostrophe. Maybe one led to the other.

That's quite a way to spin the fact that they opted not to invest in any martini glasses.

Does anyone think about font choices? Eek. I think they actually look at "martinis" and decide it's too ethnic sounding. Thus the apostrophe save. Ugh. There's no apostrophe in Baileys either.

"Cream de menthe" must be a trendy new version of creme de menthe. But when did martinis start getting measured in "portions"?

On a related note, I can't wait to upgrade my old Yahoo! Mail account so I can see the new desgin.

I've never had or seen a martini at GB Schneider's, but I wonder if "pint style" merely mimics Red Star's serving style, which is a martini shaken in a pint glass, served with a strainer alongside a small martini glass. You pour the drink yourself from the pint shaker into the small martini glass, which ends up being filled three times or so per order.

They made up for it on the online menu. When in doubt, use "GB's Tinis"

The very neat thing about a cocktail is how a martini looks in a martini glass. The very bad aspect is when people start turning Grasshoppers, etc. into Martini's and serving them in pint glasses.  Cream de Mint Martini's indeed. You're ruining a great Reason To Live on so many levels, you illiterate, tacky bartenders, you.

Perhaps I should change my name to Martini and sue everyone that implies, via possessive mark,  their drink has anything to do with me.
