No. wait. I meant to say, Brad Thomas Parsons (aka BTP) is totally all about the bitters. So much so, he wrote a book that should be out…any…minute…now, called Bitters: A Spirited History of a Classic Cure-All. I –and other cocktail geeks — can’t wait to get our Angostura-stained mitts on a copy, when it’s released November 1. But you can get a sneak peek, if you come out to Drink.Think on Oct. 19.
In addition to being a shiny new author, BTP also is a writer, blogger, and food and cocktail enthusiast. A former senior editor at Amazon.com, he received an MFA in Writing from Columbia University and has been a contributor to Serious Eats, Omnivoracious, Al Dente, and Seattle Met, among others. He lives in Brooklyn, New York. Visit him at www.btparsons.com.
Don’t be bitter. Come on out and say hi on Oct. 19, at Lolita Bar. (6:30 to drink; reading starts at 7pm.)
