Southside, anyone? Head to the Island this weekend @jaynesgastropub

Above: McMansion anyone? Summer in the Hamptons means its time for a Southside, one of Jaynes new specialty cocktails. Photo via the mildly hilarious Guest of a Guest.

You can argue about it until you’re blue in the face or blue blood: some claim the Southside cocktail comes from the tough streets of Prohibition-era Chicago, others point to the Hamptons where it has become THE quintessential drink of the glitterati. The Journal (that’s the “Wall Street Journal” to those of you who don’t summer on the Island) even devoted an entire article to the origins of this “particular privilege of the privileged class,” a tall cooling drink of gin, lemon juice, mint, and soda.

We debuted our Southside this week @jaynesgastropub. If you’re not heading to the island this weekend, please drop by and try one with us (happy hour 5-6:30).

This weekend our menu will be featuring local, shucked-to-order Kumiai Oysters and our irresistible Buttermilk Fried Chicken.

P.S. We’re going to begin closing on Sunday starting this Sunday. We will be debuting our NEW SUMMER BRUNCH next weekend for father’s day with ongoing Sunday brunch beginning in July. Stay tuned for details!

And if you’re not already following us on Twitter, please come join the party!
