Attention New Yorkers: Do you have a fond Thanksgiving Day tradition that you would like to share, and potentially have archived in an exhibit at the New York Public Library?  

The New York Public Library is soliciting submissions for recipes, photos, stories, videos and audio clips of everyone’s turkey day traditions to create an exhibit slated to open in 2012. They want to know everything from the planning details, the prep work, to the trials and tribulations and they state that “Whatever your tradition, it’s part of the melting pot that is lunch in New York, and we will gobble it right up.”  Now is the perfect time to submit your traditions as you’re planning for next weeks feast. More information on the exhibit and how to submit can be found here. (image courtesy: nypl.org)

Were you looking for the perfect recipe to make that classic cocktail that was so good they named it a “Manhattan”?  Who better to go to than New York Restauranteur, Bobby Flay.  According to Bobby, it will only take you 5 minutes to prep after you close on that home of your dreams that you found on halstead.com.   Enjoy and please drink responsibly.


3/4 ounce sweet vermouth, 2 1/2 ounces bourbon whiskey, one dash of Angostura bitters, 2-3 ice cubes, 1 maraschino cherry, & 1 orange peel twist.


Combine vermouth, whiskey, and a dash of bitters with 2 to 3 ice cubes in a mixing glass. Stir gently so as not to cloud the drink. Place the cherry in a chilled cocktail glass and strain the mixture over the cherry. Rub the cut edge of the orange peel over the rim of the glass and twist it over the drink to release the oils, but don’t drop it in.
