Zima: RIP

And once the ladies took a shine to the stuff, the guys avoided Zima as if it were laced with estrogen. from The […]

Friday Night

Went to see the Fab Four at the Canyon Club tonight. They were pretty awesome (as far as cover bands go). They changed costumes a few times and played probably two dozen Beatles songs. They weren’t the Red Elvises or anything, but it was a good show and a lot of fun. There’s not much […]

Thursday Night @ the Roxy

Another Thursday night, another becky show at the Roxy. This was — if I remember correctly — the tenth Thursday in a row (excluding St. Patrick’s) that I’ve been there.

Keg Beer

note to self: It is never ever never under any circumstances no matter what a good idea to drink keg beer. We did have a blast at Mike‘s party last night. Keff and Matt left before Sylvia, Ryan, Brown, Kim, and I got there, though.

Beer Solves Problems

haHA! On the cover of this month’s issue of Men’s Health: FIX EVERY PROBLEM WITH BEER


When I went to LA in June of ’99, Jorge and I bought a few 20-packs of Budweiser longnecks. I was surprised to see the 20-pack boxes out there. I had never seen them anywhere outside of New England. They are pretty economical; a 20-pack is around $12 while a 12-pack is $8.50. The case […]


Okay: What freak-o brought Heineken to the party Saturday night? There’s one sitting in the bottom of the fridge …


Well … now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall … Sylvia and Bhrett are in route to India. Their plane left Orlando around noon today. Sylv called from Newark (Queen of Our Cities), NJ sometime around 4 pm EST. They should be landing in Paris soon and then on […]
