Alright folks, for those of you who haven’t noticed the new mini-tab in the navigation, I’ve got a new feature down in ReynolÃ©s Galley, the Galley Cam!
Powered by a Microsoft LifeCam VX-3000, and streamed via Ustream.tv, I’m giving you all a little glimpse into the Galley for events, mixological exploits, and whatever else comes to mind. I’ll be sending out broadcast updates via twitter. With the UStream chat, you can chat with me, and I’ll respond. I’d love to be able to have you talk too, but, well, if anyone’s got a suggestion, I’m open to it.
I’m hoping to be able to open the Galley once a week or so to the internet, so keep reading and see you soon! Well, you’ll see me… at least.
Just a quick note, a new feature has been added to the Galley.
Leaping forward into the year 2008, I have installed a computer in the Galley!
What does this mean for the bartender and bartendees?
- Music Playlist Management without having to synch an iPod, thanks to iTunes sharing!
- TV/Movie nights, now without having to tire the bartender from going up and down stairs!
- A menu that people can actually read!
- CocktailDB at my sticky, booze-soaked fingertips!
- A soon-to-appear webcam (and possibly brief nudity)!
- Updating from the bar!
I think the most exciting thing about this is setting up a cocktail menu in PDF format for patrons to browse through. My current menu system is… well, dim, multi-colored lighting and an 11 point font just don’t mix.
Along with this, I’ve got a new section coming up for the site, Concoctioneering! Think of it as a one-stop shop for all your syrups and mixers. If you’ve got something you’ve got questions on, let me know and I’ll cover it. Just finished a few batches of fun stuff, some Blood Orangecello, Meyer Limoncello, Ginger and Rhubarb Syrups, and even packed about 2 liters of Falernum (spirit, no sugar) into a barrel for aging… expect some interesting notes on that one.
Time to go whip up some more Pa’avaetuli! Company is coming, and there is drinking to be done!
