Babies in bars? If the baby is clever enough to sneak into a bar, it probably deserves to be there. Others see it differently. As reported by CNN.com:
Single hipsters and others without (and sometimes with) kids complain about being asked to watch their language, to not smoke outdoors near strollers and to keep their drunk friends under control so as not to scare the little ones.

Math doesn’t lie people, and the equation on this poster says it all: time travel IS possible, you apparently just need to make a cocktail with an energy drink, Crystal Pepsi in a label-less prototype glass bottle, and squirrel juice, then drink the magical elixir in a hot tub to travel back in time to the ’80s when Parker was king and Crystal Pepsi hadn’t happened yet. Wow, think about that one for a second, Crystal Pepsi being on the horizon? It must’ve been awesome when culture still had something to look forward to.

The governor estimated that a store franchise fee could bring New York $92 million in the 2010-2011 fiscal year. See the full post »
Mutineer Beer Editor Brian Kropf is headed to Haiti with the Army’s 82nd Airborne to help out with relief efforts. He recorded this Ustream video today at the airfield preparing to deploy. He’ll have his iPhone, but it’s ridiculously expensive to use, so he’ll have limited contact with the outside world. Beverage will certainly be a concern with the limited water infrastructure damaged in the earthquake. Wish him well on Twitter via @odiedog52.
Ever wonder why people go crazy at awards events? FINE BEVERAGES! For the people that win, there will be drinks of celebration. For the people that lose, there will be drinks of consolation. Everyone else gets to drink too, which means awards shows make for some of the best parties.
Nick Swardson stars in this short post-apocalyptic film about the world descending into a drunken madness. The film was directed by Nicholaus Goossen of “Grandma’s Boy” fame.
Fun fact: If you mute the film’s audio and start Darude’s “Sandstorm” when the 28 Drinks Later intro countdown hits “5”, the two sync up perfectly, creating an alternate film experience that chronicles the life and times of Mutineer Director of Ops / Energyologist Jeff Dorenbush.
