St. V Day Massacre Party help?

The ginger / ginger ale recipe sounds great! I imagine it'll work really well as a punch. Any suggestions for types of fruit to freeze for ice cubes? Limes and maraschinos?

Gin punch for V Day Massacre Party?

Thanks!

Do you think that would translate well to a punch? I think I'd like it, but I wonder if it'd swing for a crowd. Any suggestions on how to adapt the measurements?

I'm intrigued by Amada. Any recs for "must have" food or cocktails there?

And any other suggestions are still welcome. Thanks for your help!

St. V Day Massacre Party help?

I'm having a St. Valentine's Day Massacre potluck and Masquerade in a couple of weeks, for which I'll be making a Maryland-style crab boil (because seafood, I think, is appropriately lusty, and 'Crab Boil' has the kind of grossly lecherous ring I'm looking for with this event).

I'd also like to serve some kind of Prohibition cocktail, maybe a punch to keep things easy with a crowd, and I'd love any suggestions. I would like to use gin (though not of the bathtub variety), and ideally, I'd like to use as few different types of alcohol as possible, to keep the cost reasonable.

Any suggestions?

Any other ideas for suitably sexy / dangerous side dishes to keep with the theme?

Hi! I'm a new poster but longtime lurker, and I'm hoping some Philadelphians can help.

A friend in I are meeting in Philadelphia this Friday and Saturday. Neither of us has been to the city before, and we're looking for delicious, fun places to eat, on a fresh-from-college sized budget.

We're thinking of trying a Restaurant Week venue for one of our dinners (if we can find a spot), but we have a pretty undefined schedule.

Inexpensive is good. Inexpensive happy hours are great.

We'll be staying in the Old City area, on Chestnut.

Thanks for your help!
