The Richmond skyline has made quite an appearance this week, and in the process it has saved an arm from awkward stares. The days are getting longer as we head into summer, which is good because this means Troy can take three road trips in a day and still make it to the lake before the sun goes down. There is another little creature that is enjoying lakes this year as well, and the only way to avoid it is to stay in the boat. Without meaning to we learn more than we ever wanted to about purple drank, and we try another drink that is full of lies conjured up by a marketing team. We also get a visit from a new/old friend that we hope to hear more from in the upcoming weeks. Enjoy your Fourth of July and keep the difficult decisions to whether you should get your ride from Lyft or Uber.
Firefly Music Festival has come and gone, and about half of the memories still remain. A mustache feels the beat, and shows off its sweet moves. We review some of the different camping options at the festival, and get an upgrade on hammock accessories. The Yeti makes another appearance after finally proving its mettle, but the competition never rests. Why is it that the half way point of a vacation is almost as sad as the actual end? Cleveland finally steps up to the plate, and Lebron delivers on a promise that has been long overdue. We learn the trick to buying a women drinks, and it is probably not what you think.
This week we find out that an old "friend" is still up to his same tricks; keep an eye your phone because he may be calling you next. We discover a product that sums up what is great about Capitalism, and another that seems to keep on going despite not being that great of a deal. A new shoe has dropped, and the golden era of orthopedic footwear may just be upon us. Have you ever thought you have had too much to drink to be driving...we meet a guy who that never occurred to. A false alarm has one of us placed on lockdown, but in this day and age you can never be too cautious. It may be safe to go back in the water, but be careful on the beach.
When it comes to jewelry Mr. T's signature necklace is always in style, but bracelets seem to be hit or miss. We discover a very old brewery that has found an interesting way to modernize without sacrificing its past, and another beer that appears to be in the wrong industry all together. An odd talent pops up into the conversation, and gets us a bit sidetracked. The world lost one of the greatest boxers of all time, but the legacy he leaves behind is a bit more complicated than his record in the ring. We also learn that the person who finds you after you pass matters more than you might think to the legacy that you yourself will leave behind. Another conspiracy theory finds its way to the show, but this one comes from one of the smartest people on earth...and from a movie from the 90's.
This week we are joined by Terrence O'Neill of Penny Lane Pub, and we are reminded why so many people regard it as the most authentic British pub in Virginia. Over some Half and Halfs we learn a little about the history of the pub, and what makes it home away from home for many. A lesson in soccer is learned during our time, and a pitch is made to bring the uninitiated into the Liverpool camp, but we are still keeping our options open for now. We learn of a mess created by some sheep that may have been avoided if they just knew how to use a lighter. A caption contest is won, while for one of us it felt like a loss, and a new conspiracy theory is born...are you listening Google, we are talking to you.
