After a few comments/suggestions from listener(s), we needed to throw out a disclaimer about the facts that we blurt out of our mouths. We are in no way experts, we just play them on a Podcast.
We drank several Old Fashioneds and Hoover breaks down the history of the drink, really interesting story. We made these semi-traditionally. Normally they’re made with Canadian Rye Whiskey, these were made with a Kentucky Rye.
By the way, I ramble on again about this amazing Scottish Pub on Oregon City, OR called The Highland Stills. One of my favorite places I’ve ever been. HANDS DOWN. Holy crap, they have Red Breast too. You know what, here’s a few pictures of their Wall o’ Whiskey and some of their dishes…
Pint of Speckled Hen and a glass of Red Breast. PHENOMENAL!
Baked Mac and Cheese, Sausages and Artichoke Crab Dip. Once again, incredible.
The Whiskey Bible I mention is written by Jim Murray. I’ll follow up with my review when I finally get a copy.
We watched the great Stand-Up comedy Documentary, I Am Comic and Robocop 1 and 2 with their Twitter Bots. NEWS UPDATE! As I am writing this little blog post, there is a lot of Twitter chat about a Robocop statue that will be erected in Detroit. Seriously. Look.
I retell a story about when I got to see/meet Mitch Hedburg.
We ate at the “Bowling Galley“, a food truck extravaganza at Lake Forest Lanes. Hoover gushes over The White Rabbit food truck’s carnitas, The Burnt Truck’s sliders and Hulking out on people over food. BTW, get into Crepes Bonaparte while you’re there…! And I mentioned Kogi BBQ is amazing, though they aren’t part of the Galley, they’re still amazing.
