I went to Old Dog bar for a special Diplomatico Reserva cocktail and, as I discovered, you CAN teach an old boy new tricks!
Growing up, a man has but one option. Evolve or grow old. Thank God for my constant wonder in all things new, that has kept me on my toes, eager to discover what is hot, trending, and how it all blends in with my classic favorites. Take, for instance, my affinity for double-breasted blazers. Until a week ago, I wouldn’t have thought of simultaneously playing around with checks, since I felt the blazer was busy as it was. But a simple outing for cocktails made me think otherwise. Paired with a great tie in the same, soft color, the result it brings forth is super modern and elegant. And, while I was at it with breaking my rules, why not sport a pair of derby shows with brogue details? Too much, you would think? No. Just right. Here they are, have a look yourself. Of course I went beyond my limits with the white sole but they really surprised me with how well adjusted they were with the outfit. What about the pocket square? Can’t a man have his obsessions?

DIPLOMATICO RESERVA EXCLUSIVA IS THE ONLY SPIRIT I WOULD EVER TRUST ENOUGH TO CREATE A SWEET COCKTAIL
Old Dog….or just the neighborhood dog, one of my favorite family bars. Excellent coffee, peculiar cocktails, nice eats, here they like to experiment with taste and create things based on the best ingredients they can get their hands on. Strange fruit, sacred blends, exciting spices, each recipe has a secret soul that I always love discovering.
