Monday Movie Bars: We Don’t Serve Water Here

Monday Movie Bars: We Don’t Serve Water Here

Have you already guessed today’s movie?? If you’re going with Coyote Ugly, then you are exactly right! If you haven’t seen it, the first thing we need to discuss is how that’s even possible. Released in theaters back in August of 2000 with Maria Bello, Piper Perabo, and John Goodman in the lead roles, Coyote Ugly went on to gross over 100 million dollars worldwide. It’s a wild and fun romp that tells the story of Violet Stanford (Piper Perabo), a singer from New Jersey who wants to make it big in New York

Friday Musings: A Perfect Fit

Friday Musings: A Perfect Fit

Back on March 20th we had a winter storm here on the East Coast that left us with a decent amount of heavy, slushy snow. As I was walking carefully to my car that afternoon, I was rendered speechless by two sets of identical tire tracks that were shaped like interlocking hearts. I took a picture of them, and since I do admit to enjoying social media just a little bit, I quickly posted it on Instagram where it received lots of love and a number of comments. In the days that followed, I thought a lot about those

Friday Musings: Control and Surrender

I have an issue with flying. I was on a flight to Dallas when I was in my twenties that got into some trouble with a wind sheer right after takeoff, and I’ve never quite recovered from the fear. I’m well aware that I’m in more danger behind the wheel of my car than I am at 38,000 feet in the air, but for me it’s a matter of who has control. If I’m driving, then I think I’m the one who’s running the show, even though that’s nothing more than an illusion. If I’m flying, then I have no idea what’s going on in that cockpit,

Wednesday Beer Cocktails: Twisted Collins

Wednesday Beer Cocktails: Twisted Collins

I wasn’t sure of the direction I wanted to go in for my final beer cocktail of this series, but I met a Dogfish Head sales rep last week and had the opportunity to taste their SeaQuench Ale. I was so impressed with it that my wheels immediately began spinning to find ways to work it into a drink. Hailed by Men’s Health Magazine as possibly “the world’s most thirst-quenching beer,” things like margaritas and mojitos immediate came to mind. SeaQuench is a session sour, which means that it is a beer
