Skinnier cocktails

Bars around the metro are starting to offer skinnier versions of sugary favorites, but some cocktails have always been skinny.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
You know “skinny” is a popular trend when Cheesecake Factory adds menu items under that category. The chain best known for massive portions and the signature dessert in its name added low(er) calorie cocktails at the beginning of 2011, most notably a skinny Mojito and a margarita, classic drinks with a week’s supply of sugar in the recipe.

‘Evolution is dead'


Letters to the Editor

Steve Kern
I want to make a pronouncement in response to the growing number of responders to my letters. When I was a kid in the 1950s growing up in Scottsdale, Ariz., when it was just a hole-in-the-wall, my dad would wring the neck of a chicken, pluck it and that would be our lunch after church on Sunday.

Lawnmower man


CFN

Gazette staff
There are some things that are acceptable to do at 4:30 a.m. Nurse a hangover at Denny’s, for example, or watch “Starship Troopers” on Syfy. Mowing your lawn? Not one of those acceptable things.
