This is the day we've been looking forward to: A special edition of Satellite Room's weekly Wu-Tang Wednesday party celebrates the 20th anniversary of "Enter the Wu Tang (36 Chambers)." DJs will be leaning pretty heavily on the Wu's debut album all night, but the bartenders are also getting into the act with a Wu-Tang-inspired cocktail menu for the evening. Here's what you'll be pouring out for ODB tonight:

$7 Cocktails
Supreme Clientele (Amaretto, orange juice, sour mix, grenadine)

Hot Nikkels (Old Overholt, ginger ale, dash of bitters)

Ol' Dirty (Vodka, gin, rum, tequila, triple sec, sour mix, ginger ale)

It's Yourz (Bombay Sapphire Gin, splash of St. Germain, lime, club soda)

$5 Cocktails
Wu-Tang Forever (Surprise)

Now, we can't help but think they missed a few tricks here. The Ol' Dirty cocktail should have been called the Staten Island Iced Tea. Since Satellite Room is known for its adult milkshakes, how can they not have a Hennessy-spiked "Ice C.R.E.A.M. Float"? And in honor of Method Man, the kitchen should have come up with a "I'm gonna keep feedin' you, and feedin' you, and feedin' you" all-you-can-eat buffet. (Skip the green eggs and ham, though.)

If you came up with a Wu-Tang related cocktail, what would you call it?
