When he poured, he reigned
We owe Mr. Rushton an apology.
We don't get out much. Sure, we'd like to, but the world is so big. And scary. And often cold. Typically, we huddle over the keyboard, one hand gripping a coffee mug filled with – on a good week – Jameson's. But to stave off the rumors of impending alcoholism, we sometimes find ourselves drinking "socially." During one of those unfortunate* outings, we discovered Nathan Rushton's former career slinging cocktails at a particular bar on, as the Arcata Eye refers to it, Tavern Row. Singularly focused as we are, we failed to delve deeper into Nathan's legacy.
For that, we are truly sorry.
Let the record show, Rushton's expansive bartending credentials include The Ritz, Lost Coast Brewery, Plaza Grill and Abruzzi. We have no doubt he makes a mean martini.
* The "unfortunate" had nothing to do with NR and everything to do with a certain blonde with a penchant for fruity drinks and maladjusted men. But we digress.
