Richmond Brunch Weekend is on the horizon so naturally we brought in Sara and Cazey from the As Told Over Brunch blog to get us up to speed on all that is going on. While they were here we took advantage of having them in the room to help us answer if cheap champagne or expensive champagne makes a better mimosa. A couple of us even treated ourselves like lab rats to test the latest in hangover prevention.
A trip to New Orleans has once again brought the story of Dan Dan the Shoeshine Man to the show as yet another friend has fallen prey to his scam. A new Uber scam has come to the forefront, and we learn of another Uber rider who managed to scam himself. Enjoy the episode; I have to run I have a phone call at the bar.
When it comes to drinking most people think that the company you keep and the venue are the most important factors, but the argument can be made that time of day is just as important. Daydrinking with your B Squad can still be the best time ever and sometimes better than night drinking with your first teamers. Not this episode though because we recorded it late at night.
Dreams are coming true for Olympic athletes from all over the world, and we also see a dream realized by one of our own. Speaking of dreams come true we hear the story of a man who actually met the greatest baseball player to ever wear a Yankees uniform...you guessed it he met...Mack?
This week we are joined by An Bui from The Answer Brewpub and Mekong restaurant. When you have one of the most sought after beer lists in the country we come to you, and that is exactly what we did. No Zima's were consumed, but An made sure that nobody was lacking for a great beer at anytime during our conversation. Cheers!
The NFL season has come to a close, and it was Vegas that ended up losing money on the big game. Elon Musk on the other hand knew exactly how to line his pockets with fresh cash, and outfit the world with the perfect tool to melt the winter snow. Now if only this bathing suit had pockets for me to put cash in so I could afford all of the things in my Amazon cart.
The hype for the big game is at a fever pitch, but true to form we are focused on all the wrong aspects of the game. We may have found the perfect beer for your party though. We revisit a competition that has been lopsided for many years now, but we will know soon enough if the tables have turned. On top of that...yet another pillow.
We have choices when it comes to where we shop for our food. The reasons we choose the stores we do vary almost as much as the stores themselves. What is often overlooked is how the foods in those stores are affecting the world around us and to what degree.
This week we are joined by The Progressive Liberal Wrestler. If you don't know who he is you will soon enough, because he has the most interesting persona in professional wrestling today. Depending on your political leanings you will either see him as the worst kind of villain or an outspoken hero, and both sides of the fence are showing up to his matches to let him know where they stand. One thing is for sure, the Progressive Liberal Wrestler is coming to a town near you to drop some hard left leaning shots on whoever gets in the ring, or sits outside of it.
This week we get a recap of the Ghetto Ski Trip, and if you stick around until the very end...redemption.
The weather has dipped to all time lows and for many of us this means it is time to plan a trip to the mountains for some boarding and skiing. For others planning a trip to Disney sounds like a much warmer idea. Regardless of where your mind wanders in this cold weather we may have found a coffee that can warm you up. This week we also take a peak beyond the Uber curtain and realize Troy was right all along.
Another year is coming to a close, but just because the celebrations are winding down doesn't mean winter drinks are going anywhere just yet. The gauntlet has been thrown down again and we will see who makes the best winter drinks this time around. If your New Year's Resolution was to drink more calorie laden adult beverages you are in luck. Cheers!
Tis the season for dreaming about the possibilities of the year ahead. Many dream of enduring peace, greater clarity of thought, spending more time with loved ones, or any number of well intentioned desires...others dream of cars. Be careful not to dream your days away though or you may find yourself on the wrong end of a Viking Funeral at a water park.
Winter is here and it came by way of the south, and brought some serious travel issues. At least the Griswolds of the world already had their lights up before the mess came so we can all bask is their glow. Through it all we are reminded that Nashville still has a few musical tricks up its sleeve, and some elves get broken legs.
After a month of giving to others we find ourselves on the receiving end of many a gift. The gifts from unknown sources are a blessing, while the gift from the known giver...not so much. The season of gift giving is upon us so hang your Christmas lights, and let the joy of unlit bulbs wash over you.
Our mustache team has reached the last mile on the road to a better place, and riding shotgun with us this week is fellow grower Joe all the way from KC. We encounter a homeless dog along way, and find a car leasing service that may have the right idea. We have also noticed how beer companies are using nostalgia to sell us beers, and one must wonder when we are going to start seeing pull tab cans again.
We have a lot to be thankful for, and because of this we have an opportunity to help others that may not be so fortunate. Raising money for charity is not necessarily a new idea, but we think we may have found a new way to do so this week, and settle an argument at the same time.
This week we are joined by our friend Mike Jackson to talk M4K Richmond, and he regales us with a story that really brings the power of many charitable mustaches into focus. A gauntlet that was thrown down a while back is revisited, and we may have our answer very soon. That gauntlet will not be filled with Hardywood's Gingerbread Stout, but we did make time to try this seasons release. We also solve the mystery of Rick Flare's two missing robes.
November is finally here, and that means it is the time of the year that mustaches wake from their yearly slumber to roam the wild and collect money for good causes around the country. One of these post hibernation biscuit ticklers has found a home with one of our own so we are going to embrace the challenge it has presented us with. We heard reports of many more being found in Asheville, and at a furry party in Jellystone. Tis the season.
Another Myrtle Beach golf trip is in the books, and Myrtle beach continues to live up to its reputation for better or worse. Some people will see the good in it while others will just see the bad. It is like a trampoline park that brings smiles to many, but leaves others crumbled in pain.
Nature is both awe inspiring, and at other times just plain confounding. This week we are confronted by two mysteries of nature that fall in the latter. You may never look at the sport of fishing the same again, and I am sure you are going to start checking yourself for ticks.
Crashing a wedding seems like a great idea in principle, but this week we meet a man who really misunderstood the concept. We also are reminded that some upgrades come with a price. A record breaking DELI is realized, and it feels a lot like the latest Chipotle experiment. Drive safe my friends.
Not all fedoras are created equal. This week we learn about one that is both sentimental and cheap all at the same time. Not all gift cards are created equal either even though they are designed to have value. One thing for sure is it is always exciting to get a new phone, unless of course you had a new phone that that only makes it a little past the 57 minute mark.
For some shopping is an art, for others it as hassle, but no matter where you fall on the spectrum finding a deal is the goal. When shopping for a car the negotiating process can leave you feeling like you got a good deal even if you didn't. A great price on a leather jacket or a watch may seem like a lucky break, but there are always other factors to consider. Golf courses range in price dramatically, but sometimes any price might just be too much. One deal we can all agree on is beer showing up on your front porch is always better than shopping for it yourself.
This week we are joined by our friend Tyler from Cut The Cord Live. The latest iteration of his show is up and running on a new platform and in a new studio, and we learn about the journey that brought him there. We also learn about some things that a return policy should never cover, and how not to position your rental property to a potential renter. We also discover that how you treat someone's porch furniture can have an impact on the rest of your evening; in retrospect we should have seen that one coming.
