The Friday Read: Recuerdo Mezcal, The Strokes & The Best Double-Breasted Suits

My friends, it might be hard to believe, but if you follow me on Instagram, you know it’s the case — I’m on the road once again, and on my second jaunt to Mexico in just about six months! It’s a far cry from the pandemic times of last year and the year prior, and it’s every bit as exciting as my November trip to Tequila with Jose Cuervo. In fact, it’s different and yet the same, in some ways — I’m on the road to Oaxaca to experience the delight that is Recuerdo Mezcal, and I’m excited to take a deep dive into the brand for Maxim.com. That’s worthy of a toast, is it not??

Prior to this trip though, I simply had to add in another dash of Mexico-centric fun, and it had everything to do with one of my favorite bands: That’d be The Strokes, as I wrote about for Esquire last fall. As luck would have it, the famed NYC rockers just so happened to play in Mexico City last nite, the absolute perfect way to kick off a momentous Mexico trip. Suffice to say, it’s a show I’ll never forget. And again, that’s worthy of a toast, is it not?? With that being said: I’ve got some mezcal to taste and plenty of fun on the horizon. Cheers and thanks for reading!
