Two Tuesdays ago, I ventured down to Stoddard's and found some standing room at the end of the bar along with a menu. Soon after, I was greeted by bartender Tony Iamunno and I commented that the Fight in Silence had his name written all over it. Tony was curious as to how I knew it was his creation, and I replied that it shared some similarities to the Blood of My Enemies that he crafted last summer both in name and in ingredients.
