The official site of "The F***ing Epic Twitter Quest of @MayorEmanuel"

The book features the feed, extensively annotated, plus an extensive epilogue about the story, and a foreword by Twitter co-founder Biz Stone. Added bonus: you don't have to scroll so much.

The Book Comes Alive--Drinking the Carol Marin

One of my favorite moments in the @MayorEmanuel feed is when, after a particularly harsh debate moderated by Chicago news legend Carol Marin, he concocts a drink he bequeaths with her name:

"Drinking the Carol Marin: bourbon, lemon syrup, bitters, sparkling wine. Delicious, and it'll kick your fucking ass."

So tonight, at the book event at the Museum of Contemporary Art and thanks to the efforts of my wife, who went to a liquor store and consulted with their experts (seriously, THREE PEOPLE helped), we were able to present Carol Marin with a gift basket with the ingredients of her drink.

And for you, we present the official recipe for "The Carol Marin":

  • regular bar glass with ice
  • 3 shakes of bitters
  • .5 - 1 oz limoncello
  • 1-1.5 oz bourbon
  • top off with Prosecco
  • Add a lemon twist

Added bonus: at the exact same time as the live Q&A happened, an interview Carol and I taped for Chicago Tonight aired:
