So after very short hiatus the Freak contacted me to tell me that he is doing a dumplin eating contest in Philadelphia at Sang Keen Noodle House. He will be hanging with some of his buddies from wing bowl like Shittsburgh I mean Pittsburgh Paulie, Dave Brunelli, and for the love of god Heather Cahill. Go ahead click that link, you won’t be disappointed. The gist of the competition is to finish 58 Dumplings (48 for women) in 45 minutes, and your meal is on Sangkee, plus receive a $88 Sangkee Gift Card. So basically no chewing, just swallowing. My pick is on a certain contender that I believe can swallow all day, yup Pittsburgh Paulie. You sly fuckers, I know what you were going to say. It’s almost dumplin time.

This will not be a write up for political change, or a call to arms. I fully understand the danger of guns in this country but I also understand that we are far to gone to ever stop this Nation from having guns. The good guys will always need them because the bad guys will never put them down. I believe that part we all understand to a certain extent. The part none of seem to understand is why are people, more so children, going into schools and shooting anything moving. We want to blame the guns, we want to blame the politicians, we never want to blame the kids doing it or their parents. What are We Doing Wrong. Continue reading “What are we Doing Wrong”
Another week down and once again we had some fun. We had a decent week of work, and had ourselves an amazing weekend. I am pretty sure that I still have a football high from the birds winning the Super Bowl so it’s going to hard to bring me down. I just got an excitement boner thinking about it again. We will skip past Monday because nobody fucking likes Monday and we will move further into the week. The wife has a new job interview coming up, we celebrated her birthday, there was valentines day, I got promoted last week, and we celebrated POP’s 89th Birthday, and I remain the coolest dude ever. Continue reading “Relax It’s Sunday”
My drinking escapades began Friday night when I took the wife out for dinner to Chesapeake Inn in Maryland. I wrote about a night I had there back in June this past summer. Everyone knows I love that place. This week the main beer of my focus will be from Lake Wood Brewing out of Texas. This is the first beer in a new craft beer subscription box that I got from Craft Beer Club. I got four different beers from two companies, 12 beers in all. This takes away from me having to stare aimlessly at the beer aisle at my local LQ. I can’t figure it out I just stand there like an idiot.
Over the last decade there has been an explosion of craft beer distillers opening up every where. In Delaware it seems every other week a new one is popping up in a storage building, someones backyard, a warehouse, just about any ole place. I personally couldn’t be more excited. The best is that this has become a great form of entrepeneurship. The combination of craft brewers and food trucks has changed the lanscape for hanging out and having a good time. Craft beer distillers have an amazing impact on the local economy, plus they give locals a place they can call their own.

You know, when you have to work the weekend it is difficult to dive into the drinks as much as you want. Sure when I was in my early twenties and maybe 30 or 31 or last week I could drink a shit ton and still make it to work. (Remind me to tell you the time I slept in my car and worked the next day at the prison. Jesus help me). I don’t really know what happened to me but I know it takes like a fucking week to get back on my feet. This weekend we enjoyed some bourbon ( Woodford Reserve ) some JD, and a new beer from Volunteer Brewing in Middletown Delaware. Yes that is a Minnie Car in the background. Lets not kid, Minnie is a bad bitch. Back to the Beer. This one is coming from my buddy JD who knows whose craft beers. He picked me up crowler of the Belgian Blonde from Volunteer.
With all do respect there is absolutely no way for me to FUCKING RELAX TODAY!!!!!! The Eagles are in the Super Bowl, that’s right the Super Bowl. Today will be filled with beers, food, and a million phone calls and texts. Everyone will be on the edge of their seats during the game tonight. I will spend the majority of my day wandering around waiting for the time to pass. I have already been up since 4 this morning. I know stupid right, but I drank a ton of beers last night and passed out early. I apologize for nothing. Oh and if you haven’t seen it Brian Dawkins got into the Hall of Fame. Continue reading “Relax It’s Sunday”
Finally I am off the wagon and back to Drankin. Hell yeah it feels good, oh that wasn’t a question well fuck off that’s the answer. I have all kinds of goodies lined up for the next few weeks. There are a few new craft brewers in the area that I can’t wait to try out. My buddy JD has thrown some great recommendations my way while I was in my hiatus. I will be visiting Volunteer Brewing Company and Midnight Oil Brewing Company here in the near future. This week I am trying out Oskar Blues Brewing and Green Flash Brewing Company.
So Friday Feb 2nd was the day, Wing Bowl finally arrived. The contestants through down the best they could. How did the Freak do you ask, well he was able to cash a thousand dollar check. So he didn’t win it all but did well for a rookie performance. Wing Bowl brings out the best of the best. Molly Schuyler killed it with more than 500 wings. She’s a beast. Check out some of her finest work on YouTube. Molly Schuyler Continue reading “WING BOWL”
