Friday OT: Manhattan

 74 replies

Cocktail Friday

2 OZ Rye or Bourbon Whiskey
1 OZ Sweet Vermouth
2 Dashes Bitters
A few Cherries

Put Rye or Bourbon, sweet Vermouth, and bitters into a shaker with ice.
Stir (do not shake) till cold
Strain into glass
Add As many cherries as you’ like (add small amount juice for flavor)

Tasting notes:
Basically all alcohol.
The choice of Rye and Bourbon changes the flavor
Rye adds makes it spicier, while Bourbon adds sweet
Many recipes add orange peel or bitters to add another dimension of taste.
As I’m allergic to orange that won’t be added
A strong, classic cocktail
Not too sweet, not too bitter. Perfection.
Cherries add sweetness to the spice (I used Rye)
They also soak up the alcohol and make a delicious treat at the end.

They are fully aware. Locally it does not seem to be an issue AFAIK, nationaly the “chop” and other things will need to be addressed.
Not all iconography is inherintley racist or even inappropriate IMHO.
Granted I am biased in this case but also open to the discussion.

From what I’ve gathered from the most anti-NA names people isn’t so much that it’s inherently racist, but because it is not our culture, we have no right to use it and by doing so it’s making a mockery of their culture.

Well and good, but what of those of NA ancestry who do not agree with such activists? The Chiefs, I understand, have good relationships with tribal organizations in the locality. How much of a say do they get?

I don’t think it’s fair to only consider the feelings of the outraged, those who do not share those feelings and fall into that category have opinions just as valid as the unduly passionate.

The problem is there will always be at least one that doesn’t like it, and they always point to “that guy”. And because the NFL is on the national stage, the opinion of local tribes is all well and good but not the only voices they are concerned with (so not much of a say at all if someone outside the local area is offended).

Don’t get me wrong, I get your point, but I’ve had this argument before and these are the angles that always got thrown back at me.

Its bullshit. I understand the Redskins problem that is a slur, a term that has always been used with a negative connotation. The name of Indians or Chiefs is not a slur or negative way to portray a group of people.

Jesus the next thing you know descendants of people involved in the gold rush of 49 will start to complain that their image is being ruined and simultaneously being used to gain money.

I have a major quibble for Ticketmaster.

I purchased 6 tickets for the Hella Mega Tour (Green Day, Fall Out Boy, and Weezer) in Houston on Saturday August 1st. Covid postponed it obviously, but they just rescheduled for a Thursday in July 2021. Naturally I am unable to attend that without taking off 3 days work because I live in southwest MO.
However the Dallas show is now on a Saturday. I tried to get them to exchange the seats on their end and even provided them seats that were available and the same price. They said they couldn’t do it and I would have to request a refund that might take 30 days, then place a new order for the other venue.

Seriously? WTF

I had just gotten back from Iraq the Tuesday before the first Fort Hood shooting in November of 2009 (which was on a Thursday, I believe). I remember the increased security, the lockdowns, and Obama’s visit. Our sister battalion was supposed to start going through the targeted building that afternoon, with our battalion going through the next day.

Rest in peace, SPC Guillen, and may justice be done.

My dad’s current wife was not at all into football (and from California) when they got married, and she asked me if the Chiefs thing was offensive. To my knowledge it isn’t/hasn’t been to the Native Americans that live in the region, and the name “Chief” derives from the nickname of the Kansas City mayor at the time that the Chiefs moved to the Paris of the Plains. All the symbols and whatnot pay homage to the Native American tribes of the region.

But then we are in the age where everything is offensive to someone.

The Chiefs seem to have a partnership with a local tribe. I have been to two games that a tribe leader performed a native american blessing on the field. I also have seen them bless the drum. As much as people want to complain about the chop, I have never met an actual native american that complained.

While I can’t comment about other teams with NA names, I’ve appears liked how the chiefs have done a lot to be inclusive and make the symbolism used to be respectful to the NA community. This makes it much more a celebration of NA culture (for the record I hate lumping all of them together), rather than a caricature.

I don’t know that a closer look would produce a good outcome, though. I won’t speak on the behalf of Glitter, but pulling his song out of Arrowhead hasn’t resulted in a good tradtion to replace it. Something just vanished.

I’m a big SF fan, and one thing I’ve learned from that and my studies of history is that all “utopias” are in point of fact dystopias – and I do not except the Trek universe in this, as much as I love the stories it told. Banning the “Chop” would upset vastly more people than it would provide any with any long-term relief.

WRT the Redskins, this is why I’ve wished aloud over the years that Snyder’d have the courage to change the name on his own – without any pressure. While changing the name’s the right thing to do, others are jumping on the momentum of that to persue agendas with less legitimacy.

DC succeeded on its own merits, but IMO few if any of the others could, so they have to steal momentum to advance their own. And while this includes the Chiefs, it isn’t limited to them. Making it so that everything derives from the popular opinions of the moment is bad policy.

As far as team names go, DC’s the only one I truly think needs to go. While it’s arguable (just barely) that the term isn’t inherently offensive, I hold that such arguments fall due to the original owner’s blatant and active racism, at least in the NFL.
