A Tea announcement more than 2 hours beforehand? What's this?

It's a Martini, people. It's time for the Martini to make a comeback, if only to celebrate our golden 10-days-in-a-row-off-in-May-extravaganza.

We'll have both Lemonade and real (with-an-olive) Gin martini's available.

Of course, for those not quite so civilized, there will also be the makings of Orange Blossoms and Gin and Tonics available, too.

Victual accompaniment to be determined later.

To get us in the mood, here's a little something from Ogden Nash:

”There is something about a Martini,
A tingle remarkably pleasant;
A yellow, a mellow Martini;
I wish I had one at present.
There is something about a Martini,
Ere the dining and dancing begin,
And to tell you the truth,
It is not the vermouth -
I think that perhaps it's the gin.”
