Happy Repeal Day! On this day in 1933, Congress ratified the 21st Amendment to the Constitution—which repealed Prohibition.
If Repeal Day puts you in the mood to indulge in some “drinkable delights,” you will enjoy this Food & Drink roundup in the December issue of BookPage. In this feature, reviewer Eve Zibart recommends two boozy books. (Okay, I’ll stop with the alliteration.) One is The Great American Ale Trail: The Craft Beer Lover’s Guide to the Best Watering Holes in the Nation.
The other is See Mix Drink: A Refreshingly Simple Guide to Crafting the World’s Most Popular Cocktails. (Wanna be on “Mad Men” when you grow up? This book is for you!)
Non-drinkers out there—and those underage—will enjoy reading about Balzac’s Omelette: A Delicious Tour of French Food and Culture with Honoré de Balzac and The Table Comes First: Family, France, and the Meaning of Food—which also happens to be today’s Book of the Day.
