LETTER: Thirsty for Gwar 

While weeping gleefully at old videos of Gwar on Youtube (“The Gwarchive,” Fall Arts Preview, Sept.11), it occurred to me that some place in Richmond ought to have a drink called a Sleazy P. Martini, in honor of Gwar’s legendary manager. If anyone can tell me this, I thought Jack Lauterback of “Punch Drunk” must be the man.

Brian Benson, Henrico

Editor’s note: A few days after you wrote, Calendar Editor Chris Bopst, who happens to be a co-founder of Gwar, commissioned bartender Sean Rapoza to create just such a drink for a Gwar record-release party last week at Balliceaux, where Bopst is a promoter. So ask Rapoza for a Sleazy P. Martini next time you’re there. It’s made with: vodka, blood orange liqueur, fresh lime and blood orange syrup.
