The Kim Kardashian is sensuous, flavorful, and as unsubtly delicious as its subject. Lizzo’s cocktail is a strawberry-rhubarb sparkler certain to fill you with joy. From Alexa Chung and André Leon Talley to Coco Chanel and RuPaul, there’s a flavor to fit every mood, be it avant-garde, glamorous, rebellious, or little-black-dressy. Engaging biographies explore each person’s contributions to the field of fashion, and the illustrations are sprinkled with fun details about their lives. In addition, readers can learn how to stock their bar with basic equipment, glassware, foundational spirits, and easy-to-source ingredients that can turn a basic drink into a runway-worthy libation. Perfect for birthdays, watch parties, girls’ nights in—as well as for Instagram—this book makes finding the right cocktail as exciting and surprising as shopping for a pair of shoes to complete your look.
In 1988, Jeff and Greg Danz had a dream. They would open a store that they would want to shop. So they bought an empty turn of the century building in the heart of downtown Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The brothers spent a year restoring the building and developing the concept for what would become Zandbroz Variety. When the doors opened in May of 1989, Zandbroz was a bookstore with an eclectic mix of other inventory, an old fashioned soda fountain and coffee bar. The store was a hit and a couple of years later a second location was opened in Fargo, ND. Zandbroz Variety started in a world before Barnes and Noble, Starbucks and internet shopping were part of the landscape. That of course all changed and so too Zandbroz has evolved and changed –THIRTY years later and we are still here!
