What’s Up Peekskill? Did someone say Gin Day?

Saturday is International Gin Day! Did you know that gin is actually quite healthy for you? (Like you needed an excuse to have that martini.) But it is! It helps with arthritis pain, cleans your liver and barrel-aged gin has tons of antioxidants. Now, I’m no doctor, but that sounds pretty good to me. And how do you think Humphrey Bogart dealt with Katherine Hepburn on the African Queen – what a nag!
