Drink Tom and Jerrys at Fort Defiance Tonight

Better than the cartoon.

Legends of bartending Robert Hess, Audrey Saunders, and St. John Frizell will converge tonight at Frizell’s Fort Defiance in Red Hook to make (and serve) one last big batch of classic Tom and Jerrys to the drinking public starting at 11 p.m. Be there if (a) you just can’t get enough eggnog, (b) You need closure to the 2012 holiday season, or (c) If you are thirsty. Oh, and hey, one last thing: The drinks will be free.
