Happy Friday everyone! It is a weekend jam-packed with fun things to do so let’s not dilly-dally shall we? Saturday is full of adventure. Of course we have the League of Cincinnati Steampunk’s monthly salon at Arnold’s Bar and Grill. As usual we will meet for food, drinks, and pleasant...

Secret Pop Culture Crushes

Since so many of its articles involve random scientific facts, pop culture references, and immature sexual innuendo it’s no surprise that the writers of Cracked are a frequent source of inspiration to Charlie and me. This week I read an article called 6 Pop Culture Icons Nobody Admits They Were...

The Quaker Cocktail

Quakers are not known for their cocktails, they tend to be more microbeer kind of people, so I am assuming that this cocktail was named after a location rather than after the Religious Society of Friends. This is a classic cocktail was found in The Savoy Cocktail Book, first published in 1930 in London, as...

The Church of Annie Dillard

It’s been awhile since I’ve given you a good book recommendation. In Episode 32 Charlie and I discuss spirituality so I thought it would fitting to share a book by a woman who is probably my favorite writer of all time. Although I am not as big a fan of her fiction, her essays capture...

Pandora Society Update

News from Across the Pandora World Aloysius, Charlie and myself are out-of-town so we don’t have any fun events going on to invite you to but if we were in town here are a few things that we would be doing… Tonight is the Cincinnati premiere of new independent film Derby Baby! For the first time...

Unsentimental Love Songs

  In Episode 31 of The Charlie Tonic Hour, Charlie shared Tender Trap by Joan Armatrading. He explained that one of the reasons that he likes the song is because it deals with the little everyday moments of love rather than the big dramatic declarations that most love songs rely on. That reminded me...

La Fin du Monde

  This week on The Charlie Tonic Hour we bring you a drinks segment that we recorded live at Habit’s Bar in Oakley. In this segment we tried four different beers but I believe that the one that came out with the highest rating from our group was La Fin du Monde by Unibroue Brewery in Canada. Upon...

The Midsummer Masquerade 2012

The 3rd Midsummer Masquerade at Loveland Castle is behind us and I have to say that I think this year was the best so far. The weather was perfect, the performers were top-notch and the costumes were out of this world. In addition to magic and sideshow feats from Pickled Brothers Circus and Robbin Marks...

From 2008 to the end of 2011, he produced 300 episodes of his signature Related Recap podcast. In...

A Musical Explosion in Cincinnati

This past weekend was the kind of weekend that makes me proud to live in Cincinnati. It can be easy for Cincinnati natives who look around at the wider world to feel that their modest sized city with a national reputation for conservative policies is missing out on all the fun that other cities are having....

The Prairie Fire Shot

  Feeling brave? On Episode 30 Charlie shares one of his classic drinking stories from college that had to do with this shot. To get the story you will have to wait for the podcast but you can try this drink  yourself while you are waiting. It’s super easy to make. As a bonus I decided to include...

What is Your Security Blanket?

There is a fun little website called Proust that helps you build your own autobiography by asking interesting questions and letting you answer, add pictures and share with friends. I thought it would be a fun thing to take some of those questions and answer them with you here from time to time. What is Your...

The 48 Hour Film Project Awards Show

It was red carpet night for Charlie and I last night. The Cincinnati 48 Hour Film Project held their awards show last night at the 20th Century Fox Theater in Oakley. This was the 10th year of Cincinnati’s participation in this international filmmaking competition and from what I saw, the quality of...

Chocolate Shop Wine

I can still taste the chocolatey-goodness on my tongue from trying this wine for Episode 29 this week so  I thought now would be a good time to go ahead and write up my review of this wine. Chocolate Shop wine is a sweet red wine that is infused with dark chocolate. When I first tried this wine at a happy...
