Essay: "Mother's Ruin"

Pegged to the opening of Chicago’s its first-ever gin-centric cocktail lounge, I wrote an essay about the state of the city’s drinks scene, primarily arguing that it should take more risks. What followed was the most passionate reaction I’ve ever received from any story I’ve ever written, complete with cross-media rebuttals, mentions on the local NPR affiliate, etc. Which, in my mind, is encouraging: Cocktails are, apparently, a hot-button issue in Chicago.
