A trip to Hawaii is not complete without a visit to arguably the number one brewery in the state, and so we went to the Kona Brewing Company for Episode 28 (brought to you by Beardhead.com and RiptApparel.com). Joining me this episode is the mother of my soon to be born nephew, Cynthia! Naturally we talked about our day out at Hanauma Bay, potential baby names, and Cynthia gets to stand by and watch me drink all of my delicious beer while she is reduced to drinking milkshake!

The whole reason for this Hawaiian vacation is to celebrate my future mother-in-law Doris’ birthday, and in Episode 27 (sponsored by Ript Apparel and Moose Stache Wax) that is exactly what we are doing! No first time vacation to Hawaii is complete without attending a luau, so we decided to take Doris to the west coast of Oahu to the Paradise Cove Luau in Kapolei! In this episode we talk about some of the vacation highlights including our impromptu making of a music video to Nicki Minaj’s song “Anaconda.” I also tell the story of when the Ice Queen and I met the super diva. Do yourself a favor and get yourself a nice tropical drink (or a beer of course) and take in the luau experience with us and hit play!

We head to Hawaii for episode 26 (Brought to you by RiptApparel.com and Moose Stache Wax)! I am joined by my future brother-in-law for a fun day of beach drinking and site seeing! Although we didn’t know the name of the beach we were on while there, a simple google search told me we were at Eternity Beach, just outside Honolulu! If you ever head over to the island of Oahu, I highly recommend finding this beach (and bringing along a cold one or two)!

It is a little hike down to the private beach, but well worth it!
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!

See! Told you there was a carriage hanging from the ceiling! You should definitely check this bar out if you ever are in Old Town Sacramento!
In Episode 24, brought to you by RiptApparel.com, I am joined by my friend John Madden at arguably the best pinball parlor in the Bay Area (and beyond) Free Gold Watch! It is quite the rad spot to get nostalgic as it has some of the best pinball games (Medieval Madness) and classic arcade games such as Ms Pac-Man to play. Seriously there is such a large collection here that if you are in the area, you are doing yourself a disservice is you don’t stop by. Join in on the fun by grabbing yourself a cold one and click play!

See! We weren’t making it up!
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!

In case you were wondering what the bloody mary I drank looked like, here you go!
Episode 22, brought to you by RIPTapparel.com and Pabst Blue Ribbon, is here to please your ear holes! 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!

Told you it looks fancy on the inside and that there is a lot of wood! Also, here is proof that the Hemlock Tavern is a PBR hub in SF!
