Trick Dog's New Top Secret Menu

Trick Dog in San Francisco is known for their clever cocktail menus launched twice each year. They've provided me with a first look at nearly all of them. Past menus have been:

Pantone, January 2013
Vinyl, July 2013
Zodiac, January 2014
Tourist Map, July 2014
Chinese Menu, January 2015
Dog Calendar, July 2015

Now for the bar's three-year anniversary, they've launched their new Top Secret menu. 

The menu is a dossier folder of mysteries including crop circles, bigfoot, and chemtrails, with much redacted information crossed out.
