For episode 34 (Brought to you by Opies GSB and Ript Apparel) my brother-in-law took me to a secret little speakeasy bar in Anaheim at the Anaheim Packing District called The Blind Rabbit! This was my very first trip ever into any speakeasy, and it was a lot of fun to find and enjoy a classic drink at. The drink Gerryme had actually took a lot of work and legit science to prepare, and the drink I had came from a 120 year old recipe!

For episode 33 (brought to you by Opie’s Gourmet STACKED Burgers) I traveled down to San Diego to Petco Park (or as I like to call it South San Francisco because of how there are always more Giants fans there than Padres fans) for a division rivalry game pitting the beloved defending world champion San Francisco Giants versus the meh San Diego Padres! This was my first time ever in this stadium and there was a lot to see there, including their beer garden and the numerous food spots attached to the stadium! Derek, a long time friend of the Ice Queen (my wife), joins me for this episode, and the ballgame. Grab yourself a cold one, crack it open, and enjoy this brand new episode!
