Cooking Issues Aquavit

I know what you’re thinking: Damn.  I really want to taste that Aquavit that everyone’s talking about… but I don’t know Max! Good news, ladies & gentlemen—we have an entire list of celebrities that we would LOVE to skål.  If you happen to have a connection to one of the following celebrities and can get them to come in, you’ve just won yourself the opportunity to come in and skål with them.  If you know a celebrity not on this list who might want to come in and skål, let us know!  Also, if you’re dying to see your favorite celebrity come in and skål, send us a comment  with their name and we’ll add them to the list.  Let’s get ready to SKÅLLLLLLLLLLLL!
