A friend and I went over to the Giant Thrift Shop a few towns over this morning. I was there not to purchase, mind you, but to drop off the 7 bags o' shit I've purged out of my house over the last few weeks. She was there for serious shopping. So, I had a little time to kill. And I found these babies.

They totally remind me of a 1970s love nest. (Draw out the "uuuu" in love nest. Yep, you got it.) Shag carpet, Red velvet on the walls, a black laquer bar. Maybe some zebra throw pillows. Definitely a velvet painting (of a tiger??) and Barry on the LP. Or 8 track.

Aren't they perfect? I just don't know what the time-era appropriate drink is.
Something with Tab? Fresca? A jug of Gallo? (sorry, can't go there)

I need ideas. A pack of buttons to the winner in the comments below - maybe even a few 70s themed ones! Yes, people, a contest. Talk to me.

While you're thinking, I'll be working.


It's raining out and we're having company for dinner, so I'm knitting and writing away while chickens roast. The glasses are waiting.

A Brandy Alexander -- made with ice cream in the blender! I was in college in the (late!) '70's, and ice cream drinks were very cool - groovy, even...

Fresca and gin, on the rocks. At least that what I remember being drunk out of those kind of glasses...

Drink from the 70's? How about a Harvey Wallbanger, tequila sunrise, sloe gin fizz or a white wine spritzer?

Southern Comfort and Ginger Ale--though those glasses are kinda big for that if you are feeding guests who may be driving at the end of the night--Slow Gin Fizz--all ready mentioned. Kalhua and milk?
