Reserve 101 On the Map; Restaurant's Halloween Costume

NATIONAL RESERVEEater National maps where to find Pappy Van Winkle, and Houston's own Reserve 101 makes the cut. "Attention please: It's time now for an update of Eater's Pappy Van Winkle Locator map. The Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery's bourbon — often called Pappy Van Winkle or Pappy — is a cultural phenomenon. Bourbon connoisseurs have long held it up as one of the world's best, while limited production has ensured that it is also one of the world's most sought after bourbons." [-EN-]

BAR TOOLS— In honor of our continuing Cocktail Week, check out the latest Top Ten list over at the Houston Press where contributor John Kiely tells us how to properly stock our home bars. At No. 1 is the Boston Shaker: "There's dozens of exquisite three-piece cocktail shakers, but nothing beats the professional Boston Shaker. You mix the cocktail in the clear pint glass, add ice, put the metal shaker firmly on top of the glass, invert the whole device, and start shaking." [Houston Press]

RESTAURANT HALLOWEEN— Chicago's Real Kitchen dons a Halloween costume in this funny video. Eater National reports that "this version of Alinea is entirely takeout "with a weekly change-up of 45-course meals." (Don't worry, they send you home with lengthy instructions for plating.) Real Kitchen commits to the con, taking down its strip mall sign — Alinea famously has no sign — and sending up Martin Kastner's plateware designs with an intricate contraption made from a wire hanger. (See Eater's Cocktail Week interview with Kastner here.)" [-EN-]
