Monday after my DJ gig, we stopped into Eastern Standard for dinner. For a drink, I asked bartender Seth Freidus for the Bon-Vivant which was subtitled "in honor of the professor." That professor of course is Jerry Thomas, and this tribute was created by Kit Paschal in the style of a Sherry Cobbler.
