PEOPLE ARE STRANGE: Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison and The Doors remain one of the most enduring enigmas of American Rock N’ Roll. The band that met in film school and called the streets of Venice their home, opened “the doors” to a psychedelic Rock N’ Roll discography that has planted and blossomed millions of fans around the world. And yet, there is still so much that has been overlooked, especially for what the city of Los Angeles meant for Jim Morrison.

The First Shot Ever Served: A Tale of the West

It’s always a race against the heat in the West. Hell, there’s a score of difference races around here. There’s a race to the riches and a race to the hills where the riches lay. There’s a race to food and shelter and the means in which a man might make to get them. There’s a race to the women and to the brothels and saloons where you can find them at. I don’t look for my women in those places but I often find myself in them for other races. Mine is a race to whiskey. It’s only a matter of time before I find myself in one today.

Once Upon A Bar In Hollywood: The Spirit of a great film.  

Here at vine.ly, we love a lot of things — and great cinema is surely one of them. We wanted to hit the pause button and take a second to take a look at Once Upon A Time In Hollywood; let’s have some fun pairing some of the film’s main characters to their embodied spirits. Pull up a seat and pour up your favorite cocktail.

Types of Tequila

As with any other spirit, there are several types of tequila. There are different styles that might suit different palates, some that are better for sipping and some that are better for mixing in cocktails. So if you tried a tequila once and didn't like it, don't let that be the end of it. If your only experience of tequila was slamming shots as a student, it's time to go beyond that. Get down to the tequila shelves at the liquor store or grocery store, browse around and try a different one. Tequilas are as varied and can be as subtle as scotch or bourbon.

July 23 Santorini

Santorini & Greek Varietals

Santorini is perched high above the sea, approximately 900 feet. Access to the island is by ship and a cable car ride up to the top of the island cliff. The architecture, whitewashed cubical structures give the island a very clean modern appearance. In a way it reminds me of the adobe homes one finds on a Pueblo in New Mexico. The only difference is the sandstone hues with brown accents versus Santorini’s crisp white facades often decorated in blue trim, especially the domed roofs.
