Whiskey is smooth and brown. Beautifully translucent with a million subtle secrets in each pour. It’s the stuff of Irish writers and subliminal ads from the ‘60s charged with sex. Bananas are funny, curvy and yellow. You can slip and break your pelvis if you step on a banana peel that’s been left on the floor. Bananas are the comedic foil to whiskey’s straight man—the Jerry Lewis to whiskey’s Dean Martin. Our best work has traces of whiskey and bananas all over it. It’s our opinion that the world could use more whiskey and bananas.
Footnote: There’s an interesting back story to Whiskey and Bananas that involves Tom and Matt, Amazon.com and a corporate apartment building in San Francisco. Next time you see Tom and Matt, ask them to tell you the full story.
