If you were hoping for someone to bust my balls, you came to the right place! Episode 25, brought to you by RiptApparel.com and The Old Familiar Comb Company, features my very beautiful fiance the Ice Queen (her take on me being my name being “The Cold One AC”). Trust me, her nickname is fitting! Hahaha. She has never before ever wanted to go on air with me, but after I did an Irish car bomb with her, she opened up to the idea and let me press record! In this episode we went to Fanny Anns Saloon, a five-story bar in Old Town Sacramento. This bar is pretty rad with tons of stuff to look at all over the place, including a horse drawn carriage hanging from the ceiling! Do yourself a favor, crack open a cold one, sit back, relax, and enjoy listening to my beautiful fiance lay into me!

Episode 23 (brought to you by RIPTapparel.com) takes me and my friend Dom (Caesar Black) to the San Francisco bar Finnegans Wake located in Cole Valley and known for it’s bloody mary, so naturally I had to try it out! With us both being wrestling managers on the California scene and both being in the elite stink face club, we naturally had to talk about that! Don’t worry though. The conversation moved onto other interesting topics, such as Caesar being kept in the corner of the bar during football games for being a Raiders fan, as well as him sending his DNA away to Ancestry.com to find out his true heritage. There is even a possibility he could be Canadian. If he is though, I believe it is his duty to buy and wear a Canadian tuxedo (Jean jacket with matching denim jeans, with jean shirt). I’m just throwing it out there now! Anyways…grab yourself a nice refreshing cold one and crack that bad boy open and enjoy the show!

This is stop two of the day out with Kevin Gill and it takes us to a rad bar on Polk Street in San Francisco with fancy looks, and a musical history! I’m talking about the Hemlock Tavern! This bar/venue has had many smaller acts come through and play their stage and it is also where the Old Firm Casuals with Lars Frederiksen played their very first show! Here we chat it up about some of our favorite music, as well as some musicians we don’t feel we would normally be categorized as being a fan of! I also tell a fun story about my mom taking my favorite cassette tape away from me as a child. I’m not gonna give any spoilers. You just got to press play and listen for yourself!
