21+ Screenings at Arclight

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.

Mickey’s Is Onto Something Here

Other Beverage

Mickey’s Fine Malt Liquor has outdone themselves with an “under-the-cap puzzle creator” that allows users to make their own psychedelic visual puzzles under the cap.

Here is the web ad that rocked my world:

The Legacy of Papa Pinot


David Lett

We were saddened to hear that ‘Papa Pinot’ David Lett of Eyrie Vineyards passed away on Thursday. I never met David in person, but I did get the opportunity to know him well through his wines and contributions to the wine industry. I met with his son, Jason, in August to research an article on Eyrie, which was included in the last issue of Mutineer Magazine.

If you haven’t had a bottle of Eyrie Pinot Noir, do yourself a favor and track down a bottle.

Here is a link to the obituary in the LA Times.

Pocket Shot: Another Piece of the Puzzle of Our Own Self Destruction


Pocket Shot: Fishing

This just in from Beer Mutineer JJ Bagley at the Great American Beer Festival in Colorado: They’ve taken Capri Sun juice box packaging and applied it to alcohol. I guess the old standard “mini-bottle” commonly found in airplanes and hotel rooms doesn’t provide the stealth-ness or usability for “consumers with an active lifestyle”. See the full post »

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.

The Epic Task of Parking in Los Angeles

Beverage News

Parking in Hollywood

The greatest adversary of Mutineer Magazine is not the crumbling economy, nor is it the Wine Spectator. The greatest adversary of Mutineer Magazine is the army of meter maids in Los Angeles. We collect parking tickets like ’05 Bordeaux, and I must say it is starting to take a toll on morale around the office. See the full post »

We’ll Be The Judge of That


JJ Bagley

We don’t rate beverages at Mutineer Magazine; however, we are happy to lend our palates to a festival by way of judging. That is precisely what myself and Beer Mutineer JJ Bagley did at the Yakima Fresh Hop Ale Festival. See the full post »

Sub Rosa Saffron Vodka


Sub Rosa Spirits

Sub Rosa’s Saffron Vodka is INSANE. Can you drink it straight? Sure, but only if you like drinking vodka straight. I personally don’t, so I look to cocktails to be the vehicle that brings me to the land of saffron awesomeness. See the full post »
