Sad news last week of the passing of Lauren Bacall, so on this edition of the Cocktail Nation we will take a look at her life and times. News on what they call the “Steve McQueen effect”, news on a classic Cadillac dealership in trouble in Los Angeles, and I will take a look at what is happening on the neo lounge music scene from across the globe.
