Elvis, The Incredible Hulk, and the Bedford Boys Walked into a Bar...

Monday: it's what's for dinner.

Actually it's the day that we return to work--Garfield hid from it's shadows as if it were Doomsday incarnate. And that's why I feel Robin Alexander should name one of their martinis "The Garfield"--because Robin Alexander has a martini for darn near everything else.

Monday Madness is out there folks. It's real. It's real and it's happening. And it's soliciting a taxi.

I've known for quite some time that Robin Alexander has an extensive martini list. After all, the Screw Crew and I celebrated my birthday there last year (I'm still getting over the fact they let Tomeca have the party room and not me but I'm assuming that's because she's black and they haven't discovered I'm black yet) with a margarita themed (please see last blog) matching Lolita glasses for all my guests. Little did I know until today, some genius at large has developed Monday Madness, leaving you with more money in your pocket and more sugar and vodka in your tummy.

And God knows, I love a good theme.

Robin Alexander's martini list is so extensive, it's divided into categories. You may prefer a chocolate selection, perhaps a fruity combo, maybe you'll wander over to the cocktails with a nod to the traditional and non-traditional candy. There's more. It's quite fascinating.

I've only just begun but so far I've had the pleasure of having the Pop Rocks martini (they stole my margarita idea but I'm going to let it go...I'm going to let it go...), Dirty Monkey martini, and Grapefruit martini. Some of their martinis resemble rock stars, TV shows, or historical figures (local even--impressive) and a few have movie titles like James and the Giant Peach or Silence of the Lambs (one of Screw's favorites).

So whenever you have a Miserable Monday, punch your time card and head on downtown to Robin Alexander. I'm going to make it a tradition.
