Join Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Magazines, for Big Blend Radio’s Happy Hour show, featuring international best-selling author Mark Forsyth, who discusses his new book, “A SHORT HISTORY OF DRUNKENNESS: How, Why, Where, and When Humankind Has Gotten Merry from the Stone Age to the Present.” The book traces humankind’s love affair with booze, from our primate ancestors to the twentieth century, answering every possible question along the way: What did people drink? How much? Who did the drinking? Of the many possible reasons, why?

Other Happy Hour highlights include:
- How to make a Hangar Martini with mixologist Heather Witherington from the historic Yuma Landing Bar & Grill, the site where the first airplane landed in Arizona!
- The Craven Raven Cocktail Contest - how to enter and the big list of prizes!
- Music by The Cravens rock band in Florida, and Johnny Mastro & Mama’s Boys blues band in New Orleans! 

Thank you to our show sponsor, the Springfield Tourism Commission, who invites you to come visit Central Kentucky “The Land of Bourbon, Horses & History!”
