Luke Sikora Farewell Concert This Saturday

Cliff Berkowitz / Wednesday, July 9 @ 8:55 a.m. / Music

This morning I spoke with Luke Sikora who is heading off to the Manhattan School of Music next month to pursue his Opera Career. Although Luke has received a scholarship, he will still be about $15,000 short in covering his expenses. So this Saturday he and a full lineup of local singing superstars will be putting on a concert at the Universalist Fellowship out in Bayside. Doors open at 6:30pm the show begins at 7:30pm. Sikora has been in numerous shows in local theater, most recently in Les Miserables at the North Coast Repertory Theater. Aside from the music, local businesses have donated many items for a silent auction that will also take place at the event.

A Talk With Aaron Antrim

This morning Emily and I spoke with Aaron Antrim of Trillium Solutions. Aaron used to live in Humboldt County, attended HSU and helped found Greenwheels. Aaron was instrumental in creating the JackPass program which allows HSU students to travel on HTA buses for free (paid for through a portion of student fees). Now Aaron runs Trillium Transit Solutions which works with transit agencies across the country and the world to make public transportation more efficient and easier for all people to use in both rural and urban areas.

Once again, KHUM will provide the musical soundtrack for your 4th of July fireworks starting at 10pm Friday night, right after the South Side. Whichever fireworks display you are watching, bring KHUM along for fireworks music without the rules. No John Philip Sousa marches here, you'll hear Jimi Hendrix, Arlo Guthrie, Tracy Chapman, Ray Charles, Richie Havens and the like. So when heading out for the fireworks, remember the cooler and a radio tuned to KHUM!

Tonight's Cocktail - Rum Runner

Larry Trask / Tuesday, June 24 @ 1:33 p.m. / Cocktail

pic
Invented at the Holiday Isle Tiki Bar in Islamorada, in the Florida Keys, the rum runner harkens back to Prohibition.  The Florida Keys' close proximity to Cuba made them the perfect smuggling route for bringing Cuban rum and other Caribbean spirits into the US. It's difficult to think of a cocktail that so perfectly captures the tropical summers offered by the Keys. 

This is a complicated drink with a lot of ingredients but, as with all recipes, a skilled mixologist can find ways to make adjustments.  I'm not a big fan, usually, of blended drinks, but this one is better blended, in my opinion. Note this cocktail packs a punch. 

Ingredients:

  • Two cups ice
  • 1 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz orange juice
  • 1 oz blackberry liqueur
  • 1 oz banana liqueur
  • 1 oz light rum
  • 1 oz dark rum or aged rum
  • Splash grenadine
  • Optional: one ounce of Bacardi 151 to float on top
  • Orange slice (optional)

To Mix:

Blended:

  • Fill your blender with the ice
  • Add all of the liquid ingredients
  • Blend the contents until smooth
  • Pour into a Hurricane glass and garnish with an orange slice
  • Add the 151 floater!

Or...

On the Rocks:

Fill glass with ice. Add the liquid contents. Pour the 151 in the straw or on the top.
