Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

What is in a Ceasar? I will try one.

 


The blood red color is appropriate, but the green stuff kind of blows the whole 'blood' theme. I know, lets put 'eyeball' ice cubes in the drink to give that added touch of ghoul. And, the martinis would look simply stunning with one frozen eyeball cube in each. Just put green stuffed olives in ice trays and add water and voila, eye ball ice cubes.

You probably already know this site, but I didn't know it existed. Paul gave it to out in the May Paranormal Sneak Peek thread. It gives a listing of new UF releases for the month. See Paul's post below.

All I want is to be served drinks by hot waiters, hear good music (you're in charge of that) and maybe nibble a bit.  Of course there is the floor show. You do know that Guilty Pleasures is a strip club for women featuring male strippers. Saying it's a pub it sorta misleading. I'm all for staying with the original 'males entertaining females' theme.

Instructions
  • iconRim a tall cocktail glass with the lime wedge and then Celery salt, fill with ice. Pour in Vodka and Clamato juice. Add 3 dashes each of Worcestershire and Tabasco sauce. Garnish with crisp Celery stalk and Lime wedge.

    Sometimes referred to as a "Bloody Ceasar", the Ceasar was created in Canada and apparently remains predminantly a Canadian drink. Although the drink is similar to a "Bloody Mary", the Clamato juice gives it a completely (and much better) taste. Seafood restaurants in Canada often add a Shrimp or Prawn as an additional garnish.

Here is our drink specialty from SciFiCanuck.
I hope this recipe is correct.

Re: Welcome to Guilty Pleasures: The Paranormal Pub – Off-Topic Chat Served Up Daily

line up some shots bar keep. It's Friday night and Fringe was awesome.

 

Paul, the free Friday nook book was Soft Apocalypse. Jeremy used your review on the book.

It quotes you as saying :

. In fact, Allen closes his review with an emphatic promise: “Bottom line: If Soft Apocalypse isn’t nominated for a Hugo or Nebula Award, I will eat the entire book page by page…”

 

so, of course I Downloaded it ....Did it win? or did you eat the book ???

[ Edited ]

I just bought Soft Apocalypse at a B&N store. Those with nooks should download this free e book with gratitude. I just worry that those who don't like the genre will rate the book badly because they wanted another choice for Free Friday. It's apparently happened before.:smileysad:

 

Hey, it's just past midnight, and I've been, ah hem, interviewing prospective hires. The problem is that, for some reason, a lot of them like to hide their faces. Of the guys who actually show their faces, these were some of the best

 

Darker Than Night

Winter Kiss (Dragonfire Series #4) (I know, but the chin area looks good) 

 

Soul Song

Passion Untamed (Feral Warriors Series #3)  (He needs a haircut, but you gotta admit, he's got potential!) 

 

 

There's this guy who scowled a lot and looked a bit shaggy, but also had a certain allure: 

 

Corambis  

 

 

And, I don't care what these guys faces looks like, they should be hired just for their visible assets:

Hard and Fast (Fast Track Series) 

Hot for the Holidays

Thank you!!!  I was starting to feel alone in the love if Dr. Who world.  I miss David Tenant, and Donna too.  But Matt Smith has his charms.  I do have to hear about the qualities of Amy Pond on a regular from my male geek friends...at nauseum!  Or, how she is not Martha from my husband. 

 

Seriously, I have got to recruit more geek chic's in my life!

 


I missed the whole last season.  I wasn't fond of Matt Smith....I did watch bits of some reruns and decided to give the new season a try.  BBC America is replaying the season premiere before the new episode and a special afterwards.  Of course we have to wait for the wedding reruns to stop.

Hello Susan. There's a horror movie you should probably not watch if you dislike bat caves...I believe it's called The Descent. The monsters in the movie weren't exactly as utterly terrifying and spontaneous-insanity-causing as batsquatches...but they were rather uncomfortably close.

 

But it did have a happy ending. Everyone receives cake! ^_^
