bremelogposter2Local music and arts taddle tale Bill Mickelson is spread the word about our upcoming mayoral debate/show/cocktail hour, Wednesday, at the Hi-Fi. In this week’s North Kitsap Herald, Mickelson writes that Bremelog.com has arranged “an intrinsically Bremertonian, quasi-revolutionary mayoral forum.”

Obviously, this is the nicest thing anyone’s ever said about us. It’s glad to know that 20 dollars as far as they used to.

In a separate article, Mickelson gets to the bottom of the “Why the Crap is Moen?” question, detailing the write-in candidate’s run for mayor. Here’s Mike Moen’s campaign site.

Thanks, Bill. Your check is in the mail.

mojitooooI know, the sky’s telling me it’s not mojito season, either. But this work week is telling us we don’t really care what our hooch is mixed with. Gentry’s gettin’ rid of his remaining mojito fixings on Saturday, pushing the minty beverage for $5.

Our suggestion is to go the distance on Callow this weekend:

— $5 Hot ‘n’ Ready at Little Caesars

— 5 tacos for $5 at La Poblanita

— $5 mojito at Hi-Fidelity

Just sayin’.

And by Bremerton-style, we mean mashing up music, politics, and cocktails.

So, come October 14, Bremelog.com will host/moderate a conversation between Patty Lent and Will Maupin, the two candidates duking it out to be Bremerton’s next mayor.

Boise band — and longtime friends of The Bremelogger — Finn Riggins will perform at the event.

Further details will be released soon. But, for now, plan on showing up for cocktails at 7 p.m., Oct. 14, at the Hi-Fidelity Lounge and sticking around for a conversation with the mayoral candidates and your neighbors. And stick around for one of Boise’s — and my — favorite bands.

Now some homework: I want you to tell me what you want asked of the candidates. What questions do you have? What hasn’t been addressed thus far? Send them my way or leave comments here. You’ll be hearing plenty more about this event in the coming weeks, but let’s get it started by hearing from you.

More to come.

photohifiSo, there I was, sitting at the bar at Bremerton’s Hi-Fidelity last weekend when a sailor took notice of my beverage. I informed him that it was, indeed, a gimlet: gin, sugar, and lime juice. He was intrigued, and I offered him a chance to get his lips around it. He did, and he loved it. For the next 35 minutes, he an I kept ordering gimlets and we each drank from all the glasses that came our way. A little strange, I admit.

At any rate, gimlets and cheeseburgers are flowing this weekend at Hi-Fidelity. I only order gimlets at the Hi-Fi. I mean, I have the occasional beer, but this is the only place I drink gimlets. It’s also the only place I share gimlets with sailors.
