A Scottish Play

Jordan Deis’ “Layover in Glasgow” is a riff on the “Paper Plane,” itself inspired by the “Last Word.” Jordan’ s version at the Hotel Fontenot’s lavishly decorated Peacock Room returns the drink to its Last Word origins, subbing the Paper Plane’s whiskey for gin, along with a variety of unusual modifiers.

An Untraditional Thanksgiving

Many people think of Jan. 1 as the time to set resolutions to be a person completely different than the person they actually are. To exercise. To organize. To give up cherished vices.
