Never Order a Black and Tan in Ireland

I believe that I have already confessed that despite loving their commercials and their record book, I don’t actually care for the taste of Guinness. It’s one of those drinks that I want to like but just haven’t developed the palate for it. In the past though, I have enjoyed drinking a Black and Tan. To the...

Tattooed Love

Charlie here and I’m writing today to say, “I love tattoo art”. There, I said it. When I see it on others it not only intrigues me but I find it sexy and often comment on designs I really like. Quality art and the commitment to place it on your body for life (or at least until you face a fairly painful...

But this week is different. While you will hear some of the ingredients of the lovely dueling drinks Delicious Aloysius and Sex...

Bockfest Cincinnati: Goats, Beer and More Beer

  What do goats, lent, spring and beer have to do with Cincinnati? A lot apparently. Cincinnati has a long and glorious tradition of brewing and drinking beer. In the late nineteenth century Cincinnatians drank more beer per capita than any other city in the country, by a measure of more than 2:1....

The Singapore Sling

This week we are presenting yet another historic cocktail: The Singapore Sling. As you will hear in Episode Nine of The Charlie Tonic Hour, it is a favorite of our house band, Doctor Bombay and the Atomic Bachelor Pad.

How to Host a Happy Hour and Save Your Sanity

As you will hear in Episode Nine of The Charlie Tonic Hour, this year I’ve been spending my Thursdays with a remarkable group of friends for “Happy Hour.” Like traditional happy hours, our gathering is centered around having a few drinks and complaining about work. We save money by meeting at one of the...

You are Where You Eat: The Rookwood Bar and Restaurant

Sometimes it can be hard to show off Cincinnati to people who are visiting from out of town. There are so few nationally known landmarks or culturally important areas. When my British friends are visiting us, the people they meet here always seem mystified as to why on Earth anyone would choose to visit...

America’s Oldest Cocktail: The Sazerac

  I love a good, strong cocktail. There is a certain mystique that is associated with mixed drinks that you just can’t get from wine or beer. Mixing a drink makes you part chef, part historian and part alchemist. Like jazz and free public libraries, the cocktail is a home-grown invention that makes me...

Mardi Gras Magic Comes to Cincinnati

The Voodoo Carnival 2012 Where can I start when describing this event? The wonderful performers? The amazing costumes? The beautiful facility? The incredible crowd? The near constant flirtation? I think that all of these things were intrinsic to making it a night to remember so I will have to go through all...

Schlafly’s Reserve Barleywine Ale

  For those of you who are unfamiliar with my drink reviews, it has long be established that I am far from an expert. There are plenty of very good and informative beer reviewers out there who know what they are talking about. I am here to give the enthusiastic amateur’s opinion about drinks. In...

Valentine’s Day Advice

On Episode Seven Charlie and I give some of our thoughts and advice for Valentine’s Day but unfortunately that episode doesn’t go live until tomorrow and you need to get laid tonight. Therefore before all of our horny listeners head out for their Valentine’s Date let me pass on this little...

Weekend Wrap Up: Blogging, Beer and a Go-Go Emergency

I’ve been out in public in a corset and bustle. I’ve danced in public with my underwear showing. I have publicly declared myself a romance aficionado and re-named myself after a cocktail that I don’t even drink. But this weekend marked a new step for me. This weekend I publicly declared myself a blogger....
