Blue Moon

Blue Moon ©Kim Smith 2013For several reasons, Blue Moon is my favorite beer to order out on a hot summer night (warning to readers, I know even less about specialty and craft beers than I do about wines). The first reason being is that it always makes me think of the sweet song “Blue Moon,” written by Richard Rogers and Lorenz Hart, and covered by many artists; the second reason is the attractive label, and lastly, because it tastes pretty good!

This was intended to be a post about the 7th Wave Restaurant in Rockport. We sat down and ordered drinks, which I managed to photograph. I was just so hungry and dove right in as soon as our dinners were served. We were halfway through dinner, enjoying some very fabulous fried clams, before remembering that I had wanted to take photos–anyway, next time! I will say, they were the best friend clams of the entire summer. Craig Kimberley, are you reading this recommendation?

My favorite rendition of “Blue Moon” is Ella Fitgerald’s, but Billie Holiday’s is nearly just as wonderful and the following video has some lovely stills of Lady Day and of fashions from the 50s and 60s.

Toby Pett adds Elvis Presley’s tenderest of renditions. This video too has many beautiful photos, of The King.
