Captain's Blog, Stardate 092023.25: Broadway in a Glass: The Intersection of Cocktails and Showtunes
Welcome, Fandom Community, to another exhilarating evening at Millennium FANDOM BAR, where we're celebrating the magic of Broadway! Adding to the sparkle, we're officially launching our New Signature Cocktail: THE HAMILTON. "Don't throw away your shot, this drink is Revolutionary!"
The Broadway Experience
Broadway musicals are more than just shows; they're experiences that plunge us into different worlds—from the streets of 1776 New York in 'Hamilton' to the mysterious Opera House in 'Phantom of the Opera.' But what really makes these shows special? It's the perfect blend of storytelling, music, and choreography that hooks us from the first note to the final bow.
Fandom Factoid: Broadway Edition
Did you know? Broadway theaters must have 500 seats or more to be considered a Broadway theater. Anything less and it's referred to as Off-Broadway!
The Hamilton: A Revolutionary Drink for a Revolutionary Show
Introducing THE HAMILTON, our new cocktail that’s a creative twist on the classic Hurricane. Made with Hamilton 87 silver rum, Hamilton pimento dram, Sailor Jerry spiced rum, orange juice, pineapple juice, lime juice, grenadine, and garnished with an orange slice, this drink truly embodies the revolutionary spirit of the Broadway hit it’s named after.
Fandom Factoid: Mixology Edition
Did you know that cocktails have their own version of “Broadway”? The “IBA Official Cocktails” are the world standard for cocktails, much like how Broadway shows set the standard for theater!
Other Musicals That Deserve a Cocktail
Ever thought about what a 'Phantom of the Opera' cocktail might look like? Perhaps a gothic blend of black vodka, cranberry juice, and a dash of absinthe? Or maybe a 'Chicago' cocktail with rye whiskey and a hint of sass? The possibilities are endless, much like the worlds these musicals transport us to.
Fandom Factoid: Karaoke Edition
Musicals dominate our Thursday karaoke nights! The most popular song requests are often tunes from iconic shows like 'Hamilton,' 'Les Misérables,' and 'Wicked.'
The Role of Fandom in Broadway
Broadway and its fans share a symbiotic relationship. Cosplayers bring to life characters like Alexander Hamilton or Elphaba, creating a unique subculture that enriches the Broadway community. Whether you cosplay as a Schuyler Sister or not, your fandom adds a new layer to the Broadway experience.
Join us on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, for a night that promises an unparalleled Broadway experience, right here at Millennium FANDOM BAR. And remember, "Cosplay or not, Let's Fandom!"
What better way to celebrate the magic of Broadway than by raising a glass of our new signature cocktail, THE HAMILTON? Let your fandom shine, and join us for a night of musical splendor. RSVP now and make sure you don't throw away your shot!
