Let’s all raise a glass and toast Chubby Checker on his 72nd birthday.  Such an auspicious occasion calls for an equally special libation.  Luckily, the good people at Big Star have just the elixir.  For a limited time, thirsty customers can order the well-named Blue Line Swinger: Rittenhouse Rye, Amaro Nardini, Dolin Blanc Vermouth, and coffee bitters, garnished with an orange peel.  One sip is sure to have you exclaiming “patterns of sound are my bag right now.” And nobody with a conscience will want to stop at one, because the proceeds from the Blue Line Swinger are being donated to the Lynn Sage Foundation supporting the fight against breast cancer.  Bottom’s up.
