If you haven’t done it, mix one part lemonade with one part iced tea. The Arnold Palmer. Delicious. I haven’t tried it with vodka yet, but it’s on the to-do list. Wikipedia: There are five alcoholic variations. The first, known as the “Tom Arnold“, consists of the original iced-tea/lemonade mixture, with vodka added. Another variation, [...]
Kansas City is giving the Kansas City Power and Light District a much-deserved scolding for its dress code, perceived by many as racist. The one time I went to the meat market district, we stood in line for twenty minutes to get into a bar. A bouncer approached a black guy behind me and told [...]
DB and I wanted to catch a Royals game Wednesday night. First, we went for drinks and food in Waldo. We had a couple of drinks at Tanner’s before heading next door for Waldo Pizza. Crap beer was $1.25. I chose Old Style. DB chose Schlitz. The Schlitz didn’t make Danny famous, but the Old [...]
Heather spilled her margarita into her Mexican food. The Mexican food was abundant. Tequila never is. Paper plates make decent cups.
We got free tickets to the Royals doubleheader last night. Geoff, Kevin, Dan and I hung out in the parking lot for the first half of the first game before going inside. My camera took a bit of a beating last night. After I took the above shot, I tried to take a timed shot [...]
We went to the Royals game Saturday night. It was cold. We tailgated three hours before the game. [slideshow=1] Highlights – A very obese, yet not quite Mangino-sized, man tailgated 50 yards away. He wore navy blue sweatpants and a matching sweatshirt. – We were at the game three hours early, yet didn’t get in [...]
Natty Light redesigned its can last summer. Within the last month, the new Busch Light cans started showing up in my 30 packs. The result is unacceptable. These cans are way too similar. The fonts are all set at the exact same angle, the amount of blue exposed at the top is almost identical, and [...]
Mike, Justin and I hit a couple of bars before the KU game Monday. Justin’s bladder is the size of a shot glass, do we had to duck into The Eldridge Hotel for a bathroom break between bars. The Eldridge is an ancient hotel, and its bathrooms are no exception. The men’s room had two [...]
April 7, 2008 – Downtown Lawrence after KU wins its third national championship.
I have some pictures and stories to share from my night in Lawrence for the Jayhawk’s national championship victory. However, I need to regrow some brain cells before I can write good. If I weren’t so confused on the definition of “irony,” I might say blogging about not blogging was ironic.
Note: Lots more words in this post than you’re used to. Don’t worry. I’ll give you a podcast version so you can rest your eyes, if need be. mp3 file (4:06) We wanted to try something new Saturday night. We decided on the Kansas City Power and Light District. Fearful of tight parking, we chose [...]
I went to Manhattan last weekend to catch up with some friends. We went to Kite’s Saturday night. I learned two main things. 1. K-State basketball fans suck. K-State lost to Baylor Saturday night. Like KU fans trying to follow football (see this post), K-State basketball fans really don’t understand the game. They jeer at [...]
Ian Guerin stops by for a podcast. Topics include: 1. The effect 25 cent PBR draws have on tipping. 2. Do restaurants spit in your food? We came up with a bit more material than I expected, so this is just a part of the conversation. I’ll post the rest later. mp3 file (14:52)
I have a new favorite study. The researchers found that playing drinking games, having a personal history of binge drinking, attending a party with many other intoxicated people, and attending a themed event all predicted higher blood alcohol levels. Maybe if these “researchers” had gone out once or twice during their college years, they could’ve [...]
A couple of weeks ago, we went to Harpo’s in Westport. Jon ditched us to hit on some 40-year-old, possible lesbians. An overhead shot of Jon with the suspected lesbians I bet he spent two hours talking to these women. He says they talked about life, love, the world — you know, all the things [...]
I went to the DMV to get my tags renewed today. My Corolla was registered in Riley County, and I needed to change it to Johnson, so there wasn’t much I could do to avoid a physical visit to the DMV. People who go to the DMV have problems. Don’t believe me? Then why is [...]
I’m shocked at the free publicity for Taco Bell’s “Steal a Base, Steal a Taco” promotion (bold mine). There has been at least one stolen base in every World Series matchup since 1990. When the first base is stolen, the unit of Yum Brands Inc, will announce a Tuesday afternoon when consumers will be able [...]
(2:18 podcast) Sailor Jerry kicked my ass into a world of embarrassment last week.
