First, on this Inauguration Day afternoon, a mention of drink specials in honor not only of our new president, but the former one who will make Dallas his home, oh, any day now. A few days back, Simon McDonald at The Libertine Bar forwarded us a handful of welcome-home signs, one of which appears at top, signaling the 4 p.m. opening-bell for cheap drinks, among them the Obama Slammer, the McCain Parting Shot and the Sarah Palin Designer Martini. Yes, please.
