3 Speed Riding Lawnmower DUI

Beverage News

You can either handle your liquor or you can’t. Steve here clearly cannot. Steve’s story begins when he is pulled over while driving his riding lawnmower to the store to pick up beer for his lady. He politely pulls his Craftsman over to the side of the road, and powers down the precision machine, a clear gesture of peace as this beast will not take kindly to starting up again. When asked what he is doing riding his lawnmower on the highway wasted, it is clear he is motivated by fear. “My wife said if I don’t get her another beer, she’s gonna stab me in the face.” You got a keeper there Steve.

Beverage News

If you saw our post about the Star Wars PSA, you know how powerful and awesome a PSA can be. This example, however, is the most un-powerful and un-awesome PSA ever created, with a shout out to the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission for using tax dollars to put it together. See the full post »

Star Wars Warns About Drunk Spaceflight

Beverage News

Star Wars

Check this out from 1979 – It is a public service announcement from the fine people at Star Wars. It features a bunch of psychedelic alien creatures in the Mos Eisley Cantina pounding drinks and looking for trouble. One of the aliens drinks a little too much, and requires some intervention from one of his psychedelic alien friends to call it night. “When friends drink too much, even in galaxies far, far away, friends don’t let friends drive drunk.” Well said…well said.

Sticky Prices?

Beverage News

Beer in the Store

No, I’m not talking about the market for sweet Australian “sticky” wine; I’m talking about the story on CNN.com last night that explored the phenomenon of food and beverage prices remaining high rather than decreasing with inputs such as oil and wheat. See the full post »

21+ Screenings at Arclight

Beverage News

21+ Arclight Screenings

Arclight Cinemas is my theater of choice in Los Angeles. You can reserve your seat online, they usually have movie props set up in the theater, and most importantly they offer “21+ Screenings” in which alcohol can be consumed.

Good thing too, because the two movies being featured as 21+ movies at the moment are “Rachel Getting Married” and “The Duchess”. Much alcohol will be needed to survive. “Rachel Getting Married” claims to contain “brief sexuality”, so I’m proposing that we take a shot each time this “brief sexuality” rears its ugly head.

The Modern State of Tipping

Beverage News

We Do Not Accept Tips

Check out this wonderfully written story on tipping in the New York Times Magazine. It starts off by examining the Linkery restaurant in San Diego and its no-tipping policy, making many great points for how tipping has corrupted America’s restaurants.

I couldn’t agree more with this idea, and feel that the focus on restaurants is all on food and money, with service being an afterthought. Restaurants should be all about food and service, and it is a shame that the bar for service has been lowered as much as it has.
