Breakfast Beer and Christmas Movies

Some would say my mind is like a roving Internet Movie Database (IMDb). Ever since I can remember, I had absorbed movies like they were food; from when we got our first VCR (for the young ones, that is a Video Cassette Recorder) to downloading movies to my iPad for a long trip. Especially anything […]

Kraken, the Rum of Writing

An academic. I’m not sure growing up anyone would ever classify me as an academic. In my small New Jersey town, you would typically find me in a field on a Friday or Saturday drinking cheap beer with good friends talking a massive amount of sh*t. My grades were not stellar at all, quite frankly, […]

40′ Somethings, Old Bust Head, and a Smooth Pour

Old Bust Head Brewing Company – Warrenton, Virginia What a great time with friends at Old Bust Head Brewing Company in Warrenton, Virginia! My friends, avid drinkers and sh*t talkers in their 40’s, had visited Old Bust Head numerous times before tonight and had only great things to say. My expectations were high. Old […]

Caboose Brewing Company-Vienna

My first introduction to the Caboose Brewing Company came as I was riding my Old-Man-Comfy-Seat-Bike (OMCSB) down the Washington and Old Dominion Trail*(W&OD). This was my first venture up the trail toward Vienna, a cozy Virginia burb nestled about 10 miles’ straight line from Washington DC. As I made my way through Vienna I noticed […]

What? The Moscow Mule is from Los Angeles!

From Moscow with Love When is this guy going to write about BEER!? Well, after a little post about another up and coming drink…the Moscow Mule. Believe it or not, the Moscow Mule doesn’t originate from Moscow and isn’t up and coming, it was created sometime before 1941. In 1941, John G. Martin, an east […]

Getting a Job! Stand Out!

The day after Halloween and what am I writing about; getting a job!  Why?  Why not.  You put on a mask to reinvent yourself for the night; why not reinvent your resume to get yourself a “dream” job or a better position where you are at.  This is the first part: Make Yourself Stand Out in […]

Let’s do this!

  I’ve been kicking around the idea of writing for a while now.  I wanted to create a place to push out ideas, get feedback, talk about; the Beltway life, beer, rum, tattoos, jeeps, coffee, geek stuff, and life in general.  I’m not a big fan of talking politics or religion so don’t expect much […]
