As I wait for the new season of “Mad Men” to begin, I’ll share a few of the more interesting links I’ve found. Read past entries in this series here.
1. What would Don Draper do? That’s the question Vanity Fair blogger Alyssa Bereznak applies to her weekly recaps of Pan Am. In general, Don’s response to most situations would be to drink, seduce or calmly walk away.
2. Punch out your lights. The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook Blog found a holiday punch sure to lay waste to those interminable holiday office parties looming on the horizon. “Since Canadian Club is Don Draper’s preferred brand of whiskey,” they write, “we thought it was a natural for the Sterling Cooper holiday party, and we loved it too: a delicious blend of fruit juice, Canadian Club and brandy.”
3. The end forseen. Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner tangled a hint of what he imagines the final scene of the series will be: an 84-year-old Don Draper. Maybe. Maybe not. His comments were reported on the blog Grantland.
