September 28th – NATIONAL DRINK BEER DAY! (Seriously, what a great day)

So, the headline pretty much says it all.  It is National Drink Beer Day so you should drink some beer.  I would suggest one of my new favorites, the Sierra Nevada Tumbler. Tumbler is a nice, malty brown ale. I much prefer malty to hoppy in my beers. It is smooth, with a hint of […]

Impending Doom! Baconocolypse is coming! (Also, how to make Bacon Bourbon)

As reported all over, including here in the Examiner, an “unavoidable” worldwide bacon shortage is expected to hit worldwide in 2013. And if Dictionary.com is any guide, “unavoidable” means there is no way to avoid it. Needless to say, there is panic in the streets. The shortage has barely been felt here in North America, […]

Lokoween – Crazy, Caffeinated Halloween Commercialization.

Halloween has turned out to be the biggest adult party in a crazy sense holiday there is. New Year’s is close but is a bit more sedate and dignified. Unless you are Lindsay Lohan, but you are not (I don’t think she can read, especially since everything is blurry and spinning for her). You are […]

Strong Liquor

There was an old sailor of Crete Whose peg legs propelled him quite nete; “Strong liquor,” he said, “Never goes to my head, And I know it can’t go to my fete.”

The one who knows, knows. El que sabe, sabe.

My current favorite foreign beer commercial. For Isenbeck beer. Clearly beer is a universal language. And a universal commercial.

Berkeley Skirt Lifter Cocktail

Well, Valentine’s Day has come and gone and with it the opportunities to melt your girl’s heart with small boxes of chocolate, flowers, and mushy cards with lace and hearts and such. Oh, you can still try those things, but in many cases it will simply make her think you are cheating on her. So, […]

Ron Abuelo Rum for Valentine’s Day

Rum for Valentine’s Day?  Wuck, you say?  No, it would work out for the best.  Let me tell you a tale:   Often Valentine’s Day creeps up on us without us even realizing it.  We find ourselves needing to get a gift for a person, a romantic, wonderful gift.  And oftentimes this leads us to […]

Happy Burns Night!

Inspiring bold John Barleycorn! What dangers thou canst make us scorn! Wi’ tippeny, we fear nae evil; Wi’ usquabae, we’ll face the devil!– Robert Burns in “Tam o ‘Shanter”   No Haggis for us tonight, steak sandwiches, but definitely a dram of Scotch. I am thinking Glenlivet 18 year single malt.

"The harsh, useful things of the world, from pulling teeth to digging potatoes, are best done by men who are as starkly sober as so many convicts in the death-house, but the lovely and useless things, the charming and exhilarating things, are best done by men with, as the phrase is, a few sheets in the wind." ~H.L. Mencken

The Dangers of Thirst

"Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing." ~Jerome K. Jerome

The Jug of Empire!

"How solemn and beautiful is the thought that the earliest pioneer of civilization, the van-leader of civilization, is never the steamboat, never the railroad, never the newspaper, never the Sabbath-school, never the missionary -- but always whiskey!" ~Mark Twain
