Re: “Mother's ruin

I love Madam Geneva, it's a wonderful space (AvroKO again), and I've never had anything like their gin + house-made preserves anywhere else in the world.

That said, I've also never been at Madam Geneva for more than two or three rounds before some gin-loosened soul (not infrequently me) would say, "You know what would be great right now? Rye! Hey, I've got a great idea, why don't we go get a round at PDT?" And then we'd pay for our drinks and trot on up to PDT or Death & Co. or Angel's Share, which are all just a couple short blocks away.

Being gin-exclusive is neat and all, but unlike Madam Geneva, Scofflaw isn't walking distance to multiple better cocktail bars. Versatility is probably a good idea if they want to still be serving drinks this time next year.
