The Tribe as well as the rest of us have lost one of the greats in Phife Dawg, yet somehow we are made to believe that Indiana Jones has not lost a step in his advanced age. We are watching the steady march of commercialism invade yet another holiday, and I doubt we can do much to stop it. We may have found a way to break kids of a jelly bean addiction though. Artificial Intelligence has taken another step forward, but once it really started to become human it immediately took multiple steps back. Our favorite ride sharing service may have found the key to making us fatter than ever.
This week we are visited by Brad from RVA Mag and GayRVA, and the gauntlet about whether pegged pants are coming back has been thrown down. We celebrate one of the greatest Missed Connections of all time; if you listen carefully you can still hear the name Rikki in the wind. Bike weather is fast approaching, and off colors seem to be selling well. Toots has settled out of court, and we notice he still isn't on the list of Summer concerts we are looking forward to. We learn that all fishing holes are not created equal, and neither are signature drinks.
It is a week filled with celebrations, from a 70th birthday to a drink fest in the name of a Patron Saint. The TSA did their part to hold up the birthday party, but in the end a little chicken $hit won't keep you off a plane. A Saint Patrick's party reminds us that just because a car can go on a road does not mean that it should. In an attempt to keep up with the Jones' sometimes one must build a moat. In the world of extreme sports the Iditarod has always been full of peril, but a new enemy has risen from the Tundra. And we learn that Listeria can find a new home pretty quickly, but it may not really feel at home for a couple of months.
We meet two hero's who followed the rule of Big O and Vitamin D; only to be rewarded with a pink slip. Jason has an emergency of his own, and it may have cost him his Chinese food. The "Just Say No" generation remembers Nancy Reagan, while the just say yes crowd may have found their new sunglasses (if that is you please use coupon code "ITPH" when you order them). A chicken and a pig get together at a local Hooters with unexpected results. When it is all said and done it is washed down with a Nitro IPA. Cheers
Motivational speakers can teach us a lot, some with words, and others by example. We meet one who probably wishes what happened in Vegas stayed in Vegas. The NFL Combine is here, and one NFL hopeful showed us a lot more than he intended. Bob Sagat has found his way back to the small screen, and we reminisce on his dual personalities. We discover the tropical Jager bomb for better or worse, and that all protein bars are not created equal. A nickname is revisited that for some reason will never stick...yet.
