We’ve just received this year’s Cocktailian Calendar, published and illustrated by Jill DeGroff (wife of Dale). Locals immortalized this time around: Stanislav Vadrna of Milk & Honey, Brian Van Flandern (creator of the only Sex and the City cocktail we’ll drink), Willy Shine and Aisha Sharpe, Jim Meehan, and Charlotte Voisey, the mixologist whose $32 Eldridge cocktail recently got an “eh” from Chi Chi 212. By far our fave representation is of Employees Only honchos Dushan Zaric and Jason Kosmas, who — between the bro hug and the soul patches — come off like something out of the new season of VH1’s The Pick-Up Artist. Let’s remember, though — these guys are the masters, not the pupils.
