    Hey there! I recently wrote a fun post for the music site Tunigo and thought I would share it here with you:

    “Life’s a bitch and then you die” they say.

    What I want to know is, who is the dimwitted “they” and why would they start such an ugly, self-defeating rumor? Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m not perfect and ashamedly admit the phrase has stumbled its way out of my mouth a time or two (along with some colorful words that would turn a truck driver’s head). And anyone on the outside looking in would fully (click here to read the full post on Tunigo)

    How fun! Now you can order a Happy Bitch right off the menu at Cosimo's Trattoria and Bar in Poughkeepsie, New York. The new menu was introduced Friday and rumor has it the ladies are having a ball ordering it. Notice it comes complete with the nuts. I love it!

    Thanks again to all of you who submitted recipes and who helped us taste (I know, it was a tough night).

    A very special thank you to Carlo Citera and his team at Cosimo's for giving all of us access to a taste of happy. You guys rock!

    What a fun night! The Happy Bitches came out in force last night (along with some fabulous guys). Cosimo's Trattoria took amazing care of all of us, keeping the final four cocktails poured for everyone to taste. All votes tallied and the winner was drink #4.

    Oh, you want to know what's in it? OK, here's the winning recipe: 

    2 parts raspberry vodka

    1 part amaretto

    2 parts cranberry juice

    generous squeeze of fresh lime

    garnished with 2 blanched almonds

    We really wanted this martini to represent what a Happy Bitch is about. She's strong, yet sweet. She's pretty in pink and a little nutty. And here's the best part: continue »

    This doesn't count as this week's post. I promise to have some juice for you before the week is out. But I didn't want you to miss out on this.

    If you are in the area, please join us on Thursday, June 24 from 6:00 to 8:00pm at Cosimo's restaurant in Poughkeepsie. You may have seen on my Happenings page that we are creating a brand-spanking new pink martini called the Happy Bitch. Join us on the 24th, taste the finalists and vote on the winner. Boys and girls are welcome, but you do need to be on my "in" list. Go to and click on "Get Happy" to join.

    Just imagine, before long, you'll be able to order up a Happy Bitch right from the menu. How fun!

    Oh, and if I'm feeling happy enough, I just might give away a prize that night. We'll just have to see.
