“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” F. Scott Fitzgerald’s words have resonated with readers since the book’s publication in the mid 1920’s. The Great Gatsby follows the lives of Long Islanders in the summer of 1922. The main character, Nick Carraway, moves to the Island for the summer and reacquaints himself with his cousin Daisy and is introduced to his neighbor, Jay Gatsby, a young and mysterious millionaire. He and Daisy share a past that reveals itself as you turn the pages of this classic.
As part of our ongoing Year of the Author series, we celebrate Fitzgerald’s depiction of the roaring 20’s in Quill at The Jefferson with our F. Scott Fitzgerald cocktail, made with Bourbon, Punt E Mes, Sweet Vermouth, a dash of Peychauds and served in a martini class garnished with Sage and an Orange Peel.
“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” We look forward to celebrating the change in seasons with you at The Jefferson, DC!
