The Mad Men Effect?


We have all officially become obsessed with bar carts (me included). Does that mean we are all alcoholics? Just kidding. Did this craze begin with Mad Men? I feel like it's an nod to The Graduate era when everyone had a bar cart, and maybe we are all just growing up and that is what you do. Drink. Responsibly. From your bar cart. I love a good drink at the end of the day to relax.

What do you drink at the end of the day? 
Wine? Martini? Margarita? Something on the rocks?

I'm definitely a wine at the end of a workday type girl. Preferably pinot noir :)

I was thinking the SAME thing about the bar carts. We are moving and now I definitely want one! Or a tray with neatly organized liquor as shown above. I think it's a nice formality that has disappeared over the years. A nice hostess touch.

I don't like many wines but I will drink Moscato to relax. I save the vodkas and fun drinks for Friday/Saturday nights ;-)
