THE GRIFFIN & NO NAME COCKTAIL



NO NAME COCKTAIL

( We Have Named it : QUILAGINGER )

Silver Patron Tequila + Lime + Ginger Beer


Ok We Cocktailers decided to go to one of our Fav Hoods : Los Feliz ( La,CA.) to do a Lil Sipping at THE GRIFFIN

We Enter a Corner Brick Building one level on Los Feliz Blvd & Boyce Ave to a Church / Castle Feel,
Arched High Ceilings and Open View to the BAR ( we name it The PulPit )

We have missed the Great Happy HR , but that ain't gonna stop us !

Examining the Drink Menus , We Noticed there were No Named Specialty Cocktails other than at Happy Hour Which We Have Missed, So the Bartender ask Us what are your Taste Buds  Feeling ?

In One Breath We Reply : 
" Strength of Tequila , Tart & Sweetness at the Same Time , But NOT A MARGARITA " !

So Our " NO NAME COCKTAIL " was soon presented :

SILVER PATRON TEQUILA + LIME + GINGER BEER

      *

         Now Let's Tour ~


We Have Parked and See the Sign : THE GIFFIN


Oooo , we are passing the Front Caged Patio to Enter at Side Entrance ~


We look at the Time then at the Sign and Think Maybe they Won't notice that We Have Arrived a Hour Past Happy Hour

What's On the Menu ?
