From Bob Carlton of The Birmingham News (www.al.com): If the economic crisis has got you down, the Silverton Cafe (3813 Clairmont Ave., Birmingham) has some food-and-drink specials that could lift your spirits. Or at least make you laugh. The Forest Park bar and eatery has come up with some tongue-in-cheek menu additions to help customers grin and bear the financial meltdown. Here are a few libations to get you started:
- Sub Prime Sangria. "Wash down that mortgage mess." (Available by the glass, or if need be, a pitcher).
- Wachovia’s Merge — Shaken, Not Stirred. "What you need while contemplating your bonds."
- Wall Street on the Rocks. "It’s like a Manhattan, just extra bitters."
- Lehman’s Lemon Drop. "Guaranteed to leave only a slightly sour taste in your mouth.
