Snooty drinks

I went into a fancy bar in Portland some years ago and ordered a scotch on the rocks. I took a little sip of my drink while I was looking around the room at the decor and I felt quite a stinging sensation in my nose. I looked at my reflection in the mirror behind the bar and saw that I had a small gold and silver flecked swizzle stick protruding from my right nostril. They usually just put stirring sticks in mixed drinks and I didn’t expect it. Incidentally, it is very difficult to act nonchalant while you are extracting a swizzle stick from your nose.
