A Cold One w/The Cold One Ep.33: Petco Park, San Diego, CA


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!

A Cold One w/The Cold One Ep.30: Chomp N’ Swig, San Francisco, CA


For episode 30, brought to you by RiptApparel.com, I decided to do something I rarely do; do the episode with someone I have never met in person! The stranger this time is Gordon, the Northern California beer rep for the Coronado Brewing Company! I gave him free reign on where to meet and he chose the rad, small bar and restaurant Chomp N’ Swig in San Francisco! We chatted it up about numerous topics, from sports, to categories of brewing companies, Jack In The Box munchie meals, the World Beer Cup, and of course some drinking stories!

I’m Back with Episode 29 (brought to you by RiptApparel.com)! My wedding just wrapped up and I still had some family and friends in town that wanted to take in the sites of the Bay Area. One of the main touristy stops that we generally take people to is Pier 39 in San Francisco. While on the pier we decided to go beer hunting and came across Mangos Taqueria and Cantina, and we got adventurous trying drinks that we have never tried before; Indio Beer and Micheladas! In this episode Heather and I chat it up about numerous topics including the new tourist attraction The San Francisco Dungeon, beer, other touristy stuff, and yeah….BEER! Go ahead, hit play, and make your ear holes happy!

A Cold One w/The Cold One Ep.23: Finnegans Wake, San Francisco, CA


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!

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!
