Since adding the bar cart to the den, I have been working on displaying some cool vintage finds on it, and I've decided it needs some swizzle sticks.
I mean the plastic, kitschy kind that hotels and bars used to give out freely in every mixed drink. My parents had them, and growing up I always liked to open the drawer where they were kept and look at the different designs and logos and colors. I mean, they are really cool. But, no one stocks these serviceable souvenirs anymore, do they?
Here are a few swizzle stick finds from my internet search...probably going to go digging in my parents drawer soon too.

Wouldn't it be cool if local bars and hotels and even restaurants had their own unique swizzle stick?! According to this LA Times article from 2010, swizzle sticks are making a comeback. This company is still making custom-molded and custom-printed swizzle sticks...so, how 'bout it Columbia businesses? It's pretty genius marketing, if you ask me.
