It turns out that Silver Lakers are less into post-post-irony and more keen on higher-end, higher-quality bourbon, or so goes the raison d'etre for The Thirsty Crow, a whiskey-centric watering hole opening in the former Stinkers space this Friday night.

Spotlighting scotch, rye, and bourbon, The Thirsty Crow takes its name from an Aesop's fable about a resourceful bird with a love for whiskey. Owners Bobby Green, Dimitri Komarov and Dmitry Liberman (the trio behind The Bigfoot Lodge, Little Cave and Saints and Sinners) have created a bar that celebrates the "water of life" in multiple classic cocktails, signature drinks that riff on the classics, and straight pours of the good stuff. Sure, you can get beer, champagne cocktails, and other mixed spirits, too, but when they're shaking their Manhattans, there's no need to deviate.
