Yes, pomegranates are awesome. We picked one up to snack on the other night at the Mutineer HQ and decided to blog about it for people who may not be familiar with fresh pomegranate. There may be more “correct” ways to prepare a pomegranate, but this is what we did. See the full post »
This is the closest anyone has come to publicly posting a picture of Agent Red of The Wine Spies on the Internet. I’m pretty sure that device in his hand is some sort of spy camera. Agent Red is one of several special agents working behind the scenes at thewinespies.com, with others including Agent White, Agent Sparkle, and Agent Green (I’ve even heard rumors of an Agent Grenache).

Hey!…..Vodka! This commercial straddles the line between psychedelic and terrifying, with both roads eventually leading to uncontrollable seizures. The only thing that could possibly make this more in-your-face would be 3-D glasses, which would probably cause the viewer to lose control of all bodily functions.
Playboy is teaming up with wineries to get Playboy cover girls from the 60’s and 70’s onto wine labels. This idea sounds infallible to me. Winery partners include Schug, St. Supery, Gargiulo and Janzen. See the full post »

There is adequate focus on the logo and concept behind this new product, but little else. Have we entered such an era of Branding that we’ve lost sight of what is important? See the full post »
I mean, beyond Disneyland, the beach and incredible clubs, Southern California has the caliber of weather to support this kind of beverage ninja-ness. Not much more to say about this, the video really speaks for itself…
For me the beach has always signified relaxation. It just so happens this is the home of Beachwood BBQ. The signage atop the door reminds me of 60’s pop culture, inviting and colorful. Twenty-six taps and thirty-eight bottles available now and Chef/Proprietor Gabriel Gordon tells me that about twenty more bottles are coming soon. Click here for beer list. See the full post »
