Wall of fish, and the Chicago cocktail

From Lincoln Park Zoo. It's meant to represent life in the waters of Lake Victoria.

You may have a little drink, too, since it's ages since we tried a new one. Here, from our Calvert Party Encyclopedia (1960), is the Chicago Cocktail.

Chicago Cocktail

1 and 1/2 ounces (1 jigger) brandy
dash curacao
dash bitters

Stir all ingredients well with ice. "Frost" the rim of a champagne flute by dipping it first in water, then in sugar. Strain the drink ingredients into the flute, then fill with more champagne.

Admire the view.
