I suppose if I drank alcohol and actually went to New Years Eve parties then this Original Trav•L•Bar suitcase would've really made me THE life of said celebration. Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of drinking or partying, so my $40 will just have to go towards something else even more wonderfully kitschy, --though I will admit that this is definitely one cool little take-out tavern! The original box art is pretty neat, with a wonderfully old timey, traveling sales wagon motif, plus a great double sided, martini shaped tag danglin' from the handle. I guess my favorite thing of all about it though is the monocled mascot, he's definitely giving Mr. Peanut a run for the rummy. I also quite like the fake transistor radio place holder, not to mention the even faker bottle of Southern Comfort. The recipe booklet is pretty nice too, but I didn't get to take many photos of it before the antique mall employee walked by and gave me a look like I was possibly three sheets to the wind. Yep, The Original Trav•L•Bar by Ever-Wear from 1973 --don't leave home without it! *hic!
