Christmas is upon us in a mere two days, and if you’re looking for a gift that will really leave an impression on a special someone this Christmas Day, look no further than a truly special product from our friends at George Dickel. George Dickel Whiskey products are famously “Handmade the Hard Way;” they use no computers in their distillation process, just the hard work of 30 people who genuinely care about their whiskey. And just like the motto of George Dickel, we all have some people in our livesRead More
The holiday season is here. You must be prepared for an abundance of family time, rude comments from grandma, and duets with your little sister (as well as the annoyed glances from anyone in close proximity). Part of growing up means you get to get wasted during family time, so master these recipes, share with the family, and have a holly, jolly Christmas.   1. Fire and Ice 1 oz Rumple Minze. 1 oz FireBall. You’ll probably make a follow up sound similar to those in minty gum commercials.    Read More
Thanksgiving is upon us, and while your mother is obsessing over the green bean casserole and complaining that the stuffing didn’t come “just right”, you’re mentally preparing for the day. From the hangover your already dreading after tonight’s #TGE parties, to the food coma that will follow the feast, to the prodding questions about your love life and future from your great Aunt Betty. But why not spice up your Thanksgiving this year (no pun intended) with some simple and quick pumpkin-themed treats that are sure to be crowd pleasers.Read More
Unless you’re under 21 years of age or planning on spending your Halloweekend with a Ouija board in a graveyard, the odds are good that the only spirits you’ll be around are those of the alcoholic variety. Let’s be honest – Halloween isn’t your average night, especially when it falls on a Friday. So why drink ordinary beverages for the occasion? Well, you shouldn’t! Fortunately, Captain Morgan has teamed up with Vermont’s Owl’s Brew – the first company to brew tea exclusively for use in cocktails – to create some trulyRead More
National Rum day is coming up on Saturday, August 16th (that’s this Saturday!), and I for one could not be more grateful. I mean, what better way to stew in denial that the summer’s almost over, than by day-drinking my go-to summertime liquor, amirite? Thankfully Captain Morgan has come through in the clutch with their new White Rum. It’s slightly sweet with a hint of fruit, and its light and crisp flavor is perfect for your National Rum Day celebration, whether it be poolside, lakeside, or backyard-side. Okay, so now thatRead More
Young adults are becoming baseball fans, or at least going to more games. Why? Well, a recent study in the Washington Post makes note of a rise in craft beer options at ballparks. In stadiums like Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, or Safeco Field in Seattle, “the market has exploded.” Since 2011, more young people have attended games and craft sales have gone up with them. In response, Cincinnati has installed dozens of additional craft beer taps. Meanwhile, Seattle, known for being a hip, new age kind of place, hasRead More

How to Piss off a Barista

When you open the door, you’re welcomed with a cool jazz number, the overwhelming aroma of the daily brew, and the enticement of little french pastries that cost close to minimum wage. Ah, Starbucks. I spent six years calling out names, multi-tasking drink orders, donning the green apron, and being considered “stupid in three different languages.” (Thank you, everyone who finds that joke to be original.) My time as a barista with the company was nothing short of rewarding, as I was able to make solid friendships and learn theRead More
From: srm5082@gmail.com To: care@seamless.com Subject: Re: Confirmed! Randy’s Chinese Food received your order. Estimated delivery: 45-60 minutes. [12:11 a.m.] To Whom It May Concern— Please cancel this order. When I placed it mere moments ago, the Seamless website told me there had been an error, and that I should start from the beginning and order again. Being in the famished state I am, I opted to not give Seamless another try. It’d be a waste of valuable time if I were to recreate the order only to find another errorRead More
I love to travel, especially in the summer when it feels like all I should be doing is having fun, laying by the pool, and reading. Unfortunately, now that I’ve graduated and my dear mother isn’t paying my bills anymore, a whole lot of travel during the summer isn’t feasible. Yes, of course I’ll go on a couple small weekend trips, but it will be nothing compared to the month I spent in Switzerland two summers ago (although it will be infinitely better than the two months I spent inRead More
