ORIGINAL — End of Hell


October 11, 2010 (Day 254) — End of Hell Hey, look! Another theater post! This one will be brief because we’re all worn out and ready to hit the hay. I’ll have some longer posts this week. Much love! Traditionally at our theater, we rehearse for four weeks, then have a four-week run. That last […]

Johnny Tsunami (Feat. 111 Ultra Lounge)


September 29, 2010 (Day 242) — Johnny Tsunami Still in Salina, for now, so that means we’re taking another trip downtown to find a local spot to meet some good people, relax a little bit and learn about some unique local flavors. My quest was to find something a little more low key that last […]

Tropical Heat


March 8, 2010 (Day 37) — Tropical Heat When Jenn and I got married almost two years ago (wow… already) during our honeymoon, we usually ended up finishing up our night at the hotel‘s bar. Now, that may sound kind of well… loserish. But trust me when I say the Driftwood Room was a far […]

Beam Scream


February 20, 2010 (Day 21) — Beam Scream So, I’m gunning for “party” drinks on Saturdays. Why not? It’s Saturday! But since tonight I’m going to the local chamber of commerce banquet, I’ll make it short.  Both the drink, and the post. Now that I’ve got my hands on some Hot Damn! let’s try our […]

Snowshoe Grog


February 16, 2010 (Day 17) — Snowshoe Grog Hey kids! Mr. Nomenclature here, with your new word of the day! Today’s super-fantastic-wonderful word: Grog! From Wikipedia. (And if you can’t trust Wikipedia, who can you trust?!) The word grog refers to a variety of alcoholic beverages. The word originally referred to a drink made with […]

Red Hot Martini


February 14, 2010 (Day 15) — Red Hot Martini It’s Valentine’s Day! For some, this means that it’s the perfect time of year to snuggle up with their one true love, pop some bubbly and dine on chocolate dipped strawberries while quietly thanking the heavens they made it through one more year together. For us […]

Polar Bear


February 13, 2010 (Day 14) — Polar Bear Polar bears are disappearing faster than Britney Spears’ underwear at a paparazzi convention (this cultural reference brought to by 2004). But just because they’re a rare and endangered animal doesn’t mean you can’t drink one! That’s right ladies and germs (a little topical ointment humor there), tonight’s […]

Frostini


February 11, 2010 (Day 12) — Frostini It’s eventual. With all the cocktails out there, and my limited resources in small-town America, I had to come across a foofy drink eventually. And… truth be told… between you and me (We’re friends right?) … I occasionally enjoy a foofy drink to even out all the manly […]

Turkey Peck


February 9, 2010 (Day 10) — Turkey Peck Okay, peppermint schnapps. You don’t like me and I don’t like you. But I paid good, hard-earned money for you, so by God, we’re going to get along. Or I’m going to force you down my gullet eventually. Whichever comes first! Tonight’s cocktail is something called the […]

Iceberg


February 08, 2010 (Day 9) — Iceberg Maybe peppermint schnapps in an aquired taste. Perhaps it just takes time to identify the subtle nuances of the liquor, learning the ins and outs of the various complexities of the flavors. I hope that’s the case, and there’s a flavor to it other than “mouthwash.” Okay, that’s […]
