Instead of a review today in the Post-Gazette's Weekend section, I focus on Dutch DeVries, the cocktail aficionado who is influencing how Pittsburgh drinks.
Mr. DeVries has a terrific home bar in the Strip District that rivals those at some restaurants. He's a fan of whiskey and rye in particular. He likes classic cocktails.
This week, he been more animated than usual. He played with fire at Bar Marco in the Strip as he made Blue Blazer cocktails. And he cut a rug with his girlfriend at last night's Repeal Day celebration at Salt of the Earth in Garfield.
Below are some photographs from the shoot at Mr. DeVries home as he smoked the cocktail I wrote about here.
