gingerbread martini at Starfish Asian Cuisine, Laguna Beach

Could it be true? Could my most favorite holiday cocktail in all of Laguna Beach – the Gingerbread Dude – actually be returning this Friday, Dec. 4th, to Starfish Asian Cuisine?

Be still my happily pattering heart.

Just as Frosty the Snowman promises he’ll be back again some day, our famed Gingerbread Dude seems to be planning his return appearance on the very same night that Santa arrives in Laguna Beach (that would be this Friday, Dec. 4th).

Frankly, I’m not sure which holiday fixture will receive more crowd applause and smiling faces. After all, the Gingerbread Dude, crafted by our Laguna reigning cocktail king, Neil Skewes, is one decadent, joyful tradition.

While the Dude isn’t absolutely confirmed for this Friday, you’d better believe I’ll be stopping in to check with hopeful expectations that I’ll see my old friend has, indeed, returned. Come home for Christmas, dear Dude!
