Town Hall Recipes for Art in the Age's Root & Snap Liqueur

Brewed from a centuries-old American recipe handed down from Native Americans, the new hand-crafted, organic Root is the first "authentic" liqueur to be produced in this country since pre-Prohibtion. 

Fat Tuesday at Townhall

The Hurricane cocktails were definitely flowing last night at Townhall's annual Fat Tuesday celebration, as were the oysters, the fried chicken and the gumbo.  Check out photos from the fesitivies.

Mardi Gras at Townhall: Oysters and G-Strings

Mardi Gras is coming up next week and Townhall is having its annual Fat Tuesday celebration. Co-owner Mitch Rosenthal recalled last year's celebration: "We shucked 1,900 oysters. It was brutal. There were about six of us, just shucking and jiving." Although for 2008, the restaurant ordered big, fat oysters straight from Louisiana (having grown up there, I like my oysters big, which often slightly horrifies people here who prefer delicate little—i.e. sissy—Kumamotos), they learned a lesson when the $900 overnight shipping bill came. For 2009, the oysters will be sourced locally.
