Weekend reads: Hurricane cocktail recipe & more in honor of Irene
- I’ve seen a lot of requests from people for a good Hurricane Cocktail Recipe over the past couple of days. I’m pointing you to Emeril Lagasse’s. The Hurricane Cocktail is synonymous with Louisiana and so is he. If you have a well-stocked bar, you shouldn’t need to run out and get any unusual ingredients for his version.
- If you’re power goes out, and you’re looking for some no cook recipes, we’ve got a few here on MNN. Check them out now, though. Because if you’re power goes, out, you probably won’t be able to get to them!
- Business Insider has the 13 Funniest Tweets about Hurricane Irene (so far at least).
And the funniest (and yet totally poignant) Facebook status that’s going around:
As Hurricane Irene prepares to batter the East Coast, federal disaster officials warn that Internet outages could force people to interact with other people for the first time in years. Residents are bracing themselves for the horror of awkward silences and unwanted eye contact. FEMA advises: “Be prepared. Write down possible topics to talk about in advance. Sports...the weather. Remember, a conversation is basically a series of Facebook updates strung together.”
Be safe, stay dry, and enjoy your weekend!
