Harry Ellis Commemorative Punch 2 Birds 1 Stone Recipe 
DIY Whiskey Cocktails: Classics and Contemporary Recipes Using the World's Most Popular Spirit

Smoked American whiskey is a wonderful match for a citrus-oil-tinged tea like Earl Grey. Don't worry, We're not suggesting you start spiking your morning pick-me-up; this delicate cocktail proves that Earl Grey isn't just for breakfast anymore.

Bound together by homemade ginger simple syrup, the Ulysses delivers spicy, sweet, smoky, and even salty all at once. This cocktail is named for the Greek hero of the epic poem The Odyssey. Reluctant to leave his homeland of Ithaca, he pretended to be insane by sowing his fields with salt instead of grain. In his honor, the final touch to the Ulysses is a pinch of sea salt, which adds an unexpected, crunchy kick. The ingredients for this cocktail are simplicity themselves, but the sum of the parts is truly bewitching. Recipe by Warren Bobrow.

Our new favorite bourbon cocktail once relegated to cheesy weddings and bridge parties, the venerable punch bowl is making a comeback, showing up on trendy bar tops from New York to Southern Clubs. And since we're suckers for anything bourbon related, we were particularly excited to try out a recipe for a concoction called Bourbon Slush from the new book Porch Parties, by Southern libation expert Denise Gee. This particular punch-a mix of citrus juice, bourbon, and dark tea-was a favorite in Gee's hometown of Natchez, Mississippi. Recipe.

Spooktacular Art at NCMA

Who knew you could get your horror thrills at the NC Museum of Art? There's something brewing this October and we're thrilled to share them with you!

This Halloween, uncover the mysteries of one of the NCMA's most enigmatic paintings: a portrait of Reginald Scott. Reggie was known for three things: hops, witches, and magic!
Conservator Perry Hurt will give 10-minute talks about Reginald Scott, who published an influential book that argued against the existence of witches, prompting a rebuttal by King James and informing Shakespeare's witches in Macbeth. The book was also the first in English to describe magic tricks.

The Halloween event will feature beer and wine, including a featured beer by Fortnight Brewing Company, Five performers from the Raleigh Magic Club (magicians and a palm/card reader) and Talks by NCMA conservator Perry Hurt. A night you'll

Small Treasures Exhibit - October 11 - January 4, 2015 
Rembrandt, Vermeer, Hals, and Their Contemporaries - Small Treasures is the first exhibition to focus exclusively on small-format 17th-century Dutch and Flemish figure paintings. Many of the century's greatest masters contributed to this tradition: pictures by Anthony van Dyck, Adriaen Brouwer, David Teniers, Frans Hals, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Jan Steen, Gerard ter Borch, Gerrit Dou, and Frans van Mieris the Elder are featured in the exhibition.

Drawn primarily from public and private collections throughout the United States, the works in Small Treasures showcase the quality, skill, and diversity these artists brought to their small miracles in paint. Viewers encounter various portrait formats and types, including group and individual portraits, self-portraits, allegorical portraits, and tronies, a Dutch word for faces or character studies. A handful of genre and history paintings are also shown in order to provide a larger context for the portraits.

Art & Literature are Antidotes... 
On this Wednesday, October 15 at 7pm bestselling author Susan Vreeland tells how her popular historical novels find authenticity in thorough, deliberate research. With Small Treasures in mind, Vreeland discusses her Vermeer-inspired book Girl in Hyacinth Blue and elaborates on the significance of portraits in her character portrayals. Vreeland concludes with insights about her latest novel, Lisette's List.

Susan Vreeland - East Building, Museum Auditorium - Free for members, $7 Non-members. Ticket from Box Office required. 
Book signing follows the lecture; purchase your favorite Vreeland book from a local bookstore and bring it with you.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
