Proof
I read a book called Proof: The Science of Booze . I happen to love science and drinks, so when I found out about it, I couldn't resist a trip to the library. The book goes from yeast to fermentation, to distillation, to tasting and smelling, and ends with ...

the Tron movies are more like big budget pop art experiments than narrative films, which is why I like them and why I welcome Scrillex and any other weird ideas the film makers dream up.

Financial Wellness
I hate thinking about money. My way of money management has always been one of least resistance. Oh, there's some kind of savings plan through the company? Fine, take some of my paycheck. I can split up my direct deposit into a savings and checking account?...

I Found 52 Bottles of Belle Epoque
My boss gave me our dead stock list and said, "see what you can do with this, bud." It was divided into liquor/beer/etc., and I went straight for wine. One of my favorite bottles of Champagne jumped out at me: Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque . And you know what?...

Dino's Lounge
Some people think my life is fancy. It is pretty glamorous. But I also love 24-hour dive bars if they have character. I don't like going to some random shit hole, mind you, but if there's a place boasting character and history , I'm probably totally into it...

Hahaha. The shit people think they'll get away with. One thing we hate in this town are stiffs. Pulling that kind of shit is also dangerous because management and everyone else in the club wants security to get as rough as possible with slime like that.

I wish you'd do one about douches bringing tall cans into lounges and clubs thinking that's cool. Is that ok anywhere?

Long time no see SkyJack! Welcome back! Bringing in drinks is not cool anywhere because the club wants you to buy drinks there....I've confiscated and thrown away many drinks of potential customers at the front door!

Ellis Island
Ellis Island  is a brewery in Vegas, but who cares? They're not winning any awards any time soon; so what?  They're selling their brews for $2.00 , and some guy who sounds exactly like R. Kelly is on stage singing Karaoke. A couple guys sit with me at the b...

I went to Atomic Cocktails, and this is what happened.
I was really excited about this one. One of the bartenders at Herbs & Rye suggested it as an after-hours spot (they're open until 4), and I love Herbs & Rye, so why wouldn't I love this suggestion? I went to their website and...
