I Think We Survived the Apocalypse (End of the World) I Think!


Well I went to an end of the world party last night.  It was a lot of people from work.  We mostly talked about two other people from work.  Gossip, Gossip. I drank some delicious Anchor Porter.  It is in my top 10 favorite beers.  It is chocolaty goodness.

The party started at 6. I woke up at 6 and it was an hour away.  This basically equals I am not going to stay until 12 and see the end of the world.  Erin asked me if we would just sleep through the end and I said I hope so.  She said I want to see it, so I hit her in the shoulder hard and said it might hurt like that.  LOL.  Erin: ok i should sleep through it I guess.  Although tired as shit I said that we had to have sex because I am not dying without going out with a bang, I will use this line again tonight.  I think maybe the Mayans were just trying to get everyone laid.  I mean think about it.  Last night you could have went to a bar and used the Pitbull line “Can’t promise tomorrow
But, I promise tonight”.  So if you didn’t use this line last night it may still work tonight.  I can’t promise anything but its worth a try.

So I am now writing this blog so I lived through it.  Oh but maybe it ends tonight.  I am trying to figure out what cigar in the humidor would be appropriate for the end of the world.  I did buy some Zaya rum to have with it because I have heard good things but I have never tried an aged rum.

I will be making a Podcast tonight so look for it tomorrow.


The Humidor Has Arrived


I got my Humidor which I purchased from Premium Humidors.

They even engraved my initials into it.  I started it off with 3 cigars. Gurkha Ghost, AVO Uvezian, and a Sencillo.  I also have 4 more on the way from a groupon offer that includes a Gurkha Beast (6×50), Titan (6×50), Grand Reserve (6×50), and Vintage Shaggy (6×50).  It has been 2 days and I am having a little bit of trouble keeping it at 70%.  it is about 68% humidity.  If you have any suggestions please let me know.  Also please comment any good cigars you have had.


Friday Night Chill

Friday night I first met up with my brother and some friends at Mellow Mushroom.  This place has a great happy hour, great pizza, and great beer.  Oh but they got rid of Rouge.  That sucks.  Rouge brewery is my favorite and they carried quite a few of their beers.  Oh well we decided to go to BevMo and pick up some Cigars and Liquor and chill at home.

The night was going great I got a Cigar ahead of time at Ambassador Cigars.  These guys were extremely helpful and friendly.  They had a huge selection as well.    I got an Angelenos I think it was the Grand Toro.  It was a mild and very nice cigar.  I had alongside some Knob Creek Bourbon.  We were having a great time singing songs and making videos.

Oh yeah I broke this by accident and then destroyed it on purpose.

Then the bitch neighbor called the cops.  Why not ask us to quiet down first?   Oh and by the way We were listening to Pandora B.B. King and Elton John channels.  Come on.  Its friday night granted it was 10:00 but I think 1 warning first would be nice.  She hate us so much that she can’t even say hey could you quiet down.

The officer was very nice although my brother was trying to hassle him a bit but in the end he just asked us to bring it inside.

Later Erin arrived and joined in with some nice Martinis although she forgot that she gave blood earlier and ended up a little more intoxicated than she intended.  Her next day was not good.

This wonderful neighbor moved in about a year ago and was a bitch from the beginning.  Let me explain something.  If you have problems with your neighbors talk to them about it.  She always goes to the owners of the condo who like us so that doesn’t help her or attempts to go to the HOA which found none of the problems she described to them.  This is a mother of two that never leaves the house.  She works from home and only leave to take the kids to school.  I did find out and I can not say what is happening yet but karma is coming to her soon.   A little birdie told me a secret and I am so excited.

Saturday was pretty awesome Goaz Motorcycle dealership had a nice customer appreciation day with free food music and a fashion show.  I wish I had some pics to show you the models were off the chain but the will probably post them on their Facebook page soon.

Sunday I was back on the Duc.  Drew and I went up to Natural Bridge State park.  I was a bit of a cold ride on the was up but we had a great hike and warmer ride home.

Puff, Puff, Pastry and Pizza


Last night was a nice guys night.  It started out with a Papa Murphy’s pizza that I transformed in to The Man Pub’s pizza.  I added puff pastry to the top.  BAM


We also started out with some Deschutes Obsidian Stout which is just an amazing beer.  It is not a super thick stout but it has a full flavor of chocolate and espresso.

Next it was outside to enjoy a couple of cigars, Glemorangie Scotch, a local beer from Sleepy Dog Brewery in Tempe, AZ.  Another great beer that Drew picked out.  

I had a Gurkha Grand Reserve Cigar which was awesome.  it is a light cigar that is infused in cognac.  Drew wanted a more full body cigar, so he thought.  He was at a cigar bar and they wouldn’t even let him buy a full body cigar because they said he wouldn’t like it.  Of course now that’s all he wants.  I got him a medium-full body cigar, a Cubita Spanish Market Selection Churchill.  It was a bit much.  I mean he thought it was ok but he really liked mine.  I didn’t enjoy the Cubita it was just over the top.

My friend came over and told us a story that happen earlier that day.  He went on a call to replace a toilet in a brand new house.  He asked why and she said one of the workers make have used it.  Where do these bitches come from?  What  if she is out in public and has to take a shit?  Does she go on vacation, what then?  Another good night!

This morning I was up early to enjoy the Phoenix Mountain on the RIP 9 with my friend Tommy.  We had a great ride with great climbs and awesome downhills.  It was a little cooler but the humidity was up to 57% which in the desert is pretty high.


Amazing Night w/ Romeo y Julieta and Glenmorangie


So Erin and my sister Ashley are out for the night at the Miranda Lambert concert.  My brother Drew and I decided it was time to relax so we went up to Bevmo and got Scotch, beer, and cigars.  What a perfect night.  Drew and I bought Cigars (I got a Romeo y Julieta 1875) 

This was a very nice mild cigar.  I have not smoked many cigars and I did enjoy this one.  I also had some of my favorite Scotch (Glemorangie).

The combination was amazing.  Drew and I had some great conversation and just relaxed in the Phoenix heat with the misters on.  Drew enjoyed a honey flavored cigar and a Decade Imperial IPA which was to die for.

We were even listening to Sound Tribe Sector Nine or STS9 which my sister in-law is in love with and was so proud of me for listening to.  After the Scotch it was time for one of my favorite beers St Peter’s Cream Stout.

I think this is as good as beer gets.  It was a great ending to a relaxing night.  I also am finishing off with some Elton John on Pandora.  Sometimes life can be so simple and simple can be amazing.  Cheers to simple.
