Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale: God’s Spit in a Cup

Have you ever been torn between two equally good choices? Two different options that are each so good that it pains you not be able to experience both at once? On episode two of The Charlie Tonic Hour we review a drink that can solve that problem for you, at least as far as having to choose between bourbon...

Tip the Hat for Tipitina’s

I had the opportunity to spend the better part of a week in New Orleans toward the middle of May, 2005. Just a little more then ninety days later hurricane Katrina devastated the region and erased many of the sites and culture I enjoyed. During this visit I had a chance to wander and really explore the...

On NPR’s Pop Culture Happy Hour’s last podcast of the year Glen Weldon named 2011 the beginning of “The Age of Indolence.” This was the year that he was most able to get his entertainment “…sitting like a pasha on my sofa…” Music, books, movies, TV, and comics all came streaming to him with a snap of his...

Ladies and gentleman I give you:...

Borrowing heavily from Wikipedia,...

The December Salon of The League of Cincinnati Steampunks

I’ve always loved the idea of a salon in the historical sense of a regular social gathering of eminent people at the house of a woman prominent in high society. Although I can’t claim to be the host, or even the organizer, of our local Steampunk salons I like to think that I can count myself among the...
