Tonight we share a Nightcap with architect and avid imbiber – Emily Arden Wells. We were intrigued to learn about her blog, Gastronomista.com, a website focused on the culture of cocktails where Emily shares her take on delicious treasures, tipples, and trips around the world. The Gastronomista has been featured in many publications including The New York Times, Elle Magazine, Glamour, Company, Saveur, Gilt Taste, Eater, Coolhunting, Food Republic, Forbes, and much more. She was even featured in a national Blackberry Commercial with the food lovers app, UrbanSpoon and in Ms. Lesley M.M. Blume’s ode to the cocktail, Let’s Bring Back: The Cocktail Edition – Emily was named an “Epic Imbiber and Bon Vivant.” Kudos to you, Emily!

For this week’s NightCap, we caught up with Faulkner. The bi-coastal rockers (formed in Venice, CA) hit the ground running on their journey to success. Landing an unfinished demo of their song “NY Anthem” in the hands of RZA, the Wu-Tang Clan mastermind, Faulkner captured the hip-hop legend’s interest, leading to their first major collaboration. As a result, the track can be heard at New York Yankees home games. But New York isn’t the only place giving them love. Emphasizing the term “bi-coastal,” the rockers have also been featured on iconic L.A. radio station KROQ with their single “Revolutionary” as well over two million plays on YouTube.
