Q: Any pointers for bastard-worthy Halloween costumes? And I don't necessarily mean best-in-show stuff here, just a good (and basically last minute) get up. In case it matters, the party is at a country club.

A: Ben, if it's at a country club, we recommend going as any character from Caddyshack: Ty Webb, Al Czervik, Carl Spackler, or Spaulding Smails will do nicely. Just make sure your date goes as Lacey Underall (if she doesn't have that Fila outfit, at least have her go braless please).

For everybody else out there, your question has given us an opportunity to do one of our favorite things: create a pseudo-scientific chart.

  • 1 raw sugar cube
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 3 oz bourbon

On bottom of Old Fashioned glass (what else?) dribble bitters on sugar cube. Muddle. Fill with ice, then with bourbon. Garnish with lemon twist. No, not a thick orange wedge, handful of cherries, or a cup of fruit salad. A simple lemon wedge.
