Purely Coincidental

In Kurt Vonnegut’s (Indiana legend) final novel, Timequake, the meaninglessness he gives to characters helps them find courage, the novel states that "all persons, living and dead, are purely coincidental.” Vonnegut enjoyed a scotch and water every night and although this isn't his scotch and water, it does include his beloved spirit and hopefully fills our patrons with courage. Ball ‘n Biscuit, a quaint bar with an industrial feel, makes their "Purely Coincidental" cocktail a twist on a classic scotch and water, which happened to be Vonnegut's favorite drink. Coincidence? We think not.
