When I met John Nugent he had never been really behind a bar before. How things have changed, now headed back to his hometown of Seattle to open a new spot and keep making the killer cocktails he's been doing here in town most recently at Citizen, Silvertone and dozens of events. I'm sure he will be king of the cocktail scene there before you can say Old Fashioned Old Fashioned, but like an older brother (or maybe father) I'm going to keep giving him a hard time reminding to always be nice first and foremost- I mean, there's only so much cocktail talk I can take.
Rumor has it as one of his last acts in town John will be the MC for
The Facial Hair Fiasco at the Middle East this Saturday October 5th, sponsored by Narragansett. So, you can still see him and his beard one more time.
My toast goodbye:
I will always have a High Life on the bar for you my friend, and miss you like the deserts miss the rain.
