The Slice: Winter 2019
Cocktails on the go, must-have Flamingo swag and a psychedelic new read from Tallahassee best-selling author Jeff Vandermeer
HAVE PARTY WILL TRAVEL
Long time gastronome and former Ringling School of Design student Jill Martini tapped into her entrepreneurial skills to turn a 1978 horse trailer into a trendy mobile bar fit for any occasion. Simply provide the alcohol and the Wandering Whale will turn even the most boring corporate event into an exciting, boozy bash. In purchasing a package deal, this curbside drinkery also comes with its own Wandering Whale bartender to keep the crafty cocktails flowing. If you can’t make it to Sarasota, where the Wandering Whale roams, get inspired by Martini’s creativity. thewanderingwhale.com
ONE FOR YOU. ONE FOR ME.
VANDERMEER’S LATEST MUST-READ
Two years after Borne introduced a world devastated by a climate catastrophe and populated by fantastical rogue biotech—including a giant flying bear named Mord—New York Times best-selling Tallahassee author Jeff VanderMeer returns to that scorched, hallucinogenic terrain with his latest book, Dead Astronauts, which reveals the story of a mysterious trio first glimpsed in the 2017 novel. The space travelers have some interesting company, most notably “a messianic blue fox who slips through warrens of time and space,” among other creatures and creations of weird science run decidedly amok.
