The best superhero of all time (and I'll fight anyone that argues this — KAPOW!) celebrates his first appearance in Detective Comics #27 with a cocktail-fueled birthday bash at The Last Word
(229 E. Houston St., 210-314-1285) on Saturday, May 14. The party will double as The San Antonio Public Library Foundation's monthly 1st Edition Libation and Literary Party.
Themed cocktails will include “Joker Venom” of Fernet Vallet, pisco, orgeat and lemon; “Ivy’s Kiss” with gin, Giffard Pamplemousse, lemon and Montenegro; “Knightfall" of bourbon, habanero grenadine, lemon and sugar; and finally a “For Alfred” which combines an Alamo Beer with a Shot of Fernet Branca.
The party starts at 9 p.m. and costumes are strongly encouraged.
