Samuel Kinsey, a Manhattan opera singer and regular habitué of online cocktail forums and bars like the Pegu Club on West Houston Street, traces the roots of his cocktail ardor to “being of Scottish extraction and being raised Episcopalian.” In this regard, as in his reluctance to be cast as a geek (“The word I like to use is ‘cocktailian,’ ” he said), Mr. Kinsey is something of an anomaly in geek circles.
But Mr. Kinsey, the “cocktailian,” struck a sanguine note. “I’ve been out dancing on tables at 5 a.m. and blowing balls of flame in the air,” he said. “You know, it’s booze.”
