I just got a call from a reader who had just finished my recent article on drinking for self-improvement instead of inebriation and told me to go to Playboy.com and click on "style." No other explanation. Good way to test out the Weekly's porn-blocking software, I guess.
Lo and behold, once I bypassed the advertisements for nudies, I came across a big old photo of Murray Stenson, head bartender and muse at Zig Zag. Playboy has listed him as one of the top ten bartenders in America. (Warning: link to site with adult content.) Wonder if Hef has ever dropped in for a Manhattan?
