Big Other

The Reading

by Pete Marzulli

  • Leo’s Quest in honor of Austin Ratner and In the Land of the Living
  • Portal in honor of Karen Heuler and Other Places
  • Young & Sengle in honor of Sandra Newman and The Country of Ice Cream Star

And, to celebrate host Lisa Kristel’s birthday on this night, Pete created a Smoked Manhattan—her favorite flavor combined with her preferred cocktail. It’s the classic recipe using his specially prepared bourbon. Alas, the secret to smoking bourbon is unavailable at this moment!
