A Feel for Cocktail Fodder

A martini glass. Accentuate it with your mind.

Here at Cocktail Fodder, we debated whether to jump right into substantive material or to present our new readers with a inaugural entry that gives them a feel for what we’re trying to do with our nascent blog. As you can probably tell from the title of these ramblings, we chose the latter route.

Chances are, you don’t talk about only one subject with your coworkers, friends and family but rather span a vast array of nuggets of knowledge you collect reading, conversing with others, traveling, surfing the web,watching TV, etc. Keeping that in mind, everyday of the week Cocktail Fodder will be centered around a new theme….

Mondays:  “International Intrigue” – We’ll try to present you with the hottest headlines, or most unique, in the international infosphere. One week may look at the drug trade in West Africa and the next might delve into the British election system. We’ll try to stay varied and constantly viable.

Tuesdays: “Domestic Diary” – Tuesdays will bring you the must read stories of the past week’s domestic politics. From Tea Party rallies to unbalanced budgets to the upcoming November elections, the Domestic Diary will look towards Washington with a critical and, hopefully, vigilant eye.

Wednesdays: “20 Somethings Eating Well” – The vast majority of twenty somethings, including your own Cocktail Fodder authors, live on a budget. A budget that doesn’t often include the culinary accutrements that they would like to treat themselves to. On Wednesdays, we’ll try to bring to light new culinary trends, off-the-beaten path wines and budget recipes to eat like the culinary expert you are at heart.

Thursdays: “Not Your Average Sports” – The word shmorgishborg does not begin to describe the litany of sports blogs at the disposal of the average net-surfer; specifically the average American internet user. On Thursdays, we’re going to try to feature a new take on the weeks news stories in the American and international sports scenes. Be forewarned though, we are soccer fans, enthusiasts if you will, and we will invariably bring the joy of the beautiful game to you.

Fridays: “Week In Review” – This is not a unique idea, we’ll freely admit that. But everyone needs a trusty and compelling week in review to get their intellectual juices flowing before well deserved weekend laziness. We’ll try to give you that in an idiosyncratic manner that will leave you wanting more Cocktail Fodder.

So that’s it. That’s what we’re starting with. It could change, but this is our raison d’etre. We hope you enjoy the reading and come back for more. We also want to hear from you. Comment, email us at cocktailfoddertalkback@gmail.com or tweet us. Let us know what we’re doing wrong or what we should try. No suggestion or comment is a bad one.

We start daily blogging on June 21st. Get ready.

    For your food posts check out the new restaurants/back yard dinners people are hosting all over the country. I heard people are building pizza grills in their backyards and serving six course dinners to Facebook friends…a new dining trend?
