In this special and glorious return to our normal podcasting schedule (because something has to return to normal in this clusterfrack of a year), Jason offers some updates plus the “new normal” for VLO before enjoying an aged Liga Privada No. 9 cigar and a bottle of Founders Porter. We wrap up with a brief recap of the June visit (with Tony!) to a local tribal casino on the first day it opened post-lockdown. You can’t miss this extravaganza of vicey goodness!
Get your autumnal groove on with a dram of the Col. E. H. Taylor Small Batch bourbon before diving into a Gurkha Marquesa and a La Palina Bronze-label cigar. We wrap up this “succinct” show with a tour of the 10 worst bets in the casino.
We pack a lot of great content in to a less-than-30-minute show! After sipping a delicious Black Manhattan, Tony briefly recounts his story of a Romeo y Julieta 1875, a Cuban he received as a gift. Jason, meanwhile, smoked the 2019 release of the Camacho Liberty Series 2012 Thowback. We wrap up with a legal-like segment about facial recognition technology in casinos.
Summer vacation is almost over, but the podcasts continue … slowly. In this episode, Jason rants at Boyd Gaming and its [insert expletive here] B-Connected program. Plus, we drink a special Angel’s Envy and enjoy an Alec Bradley Blind Faith cigar.
Jason force-feeds Tony a pair of martinis — one made with Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice gin and the other with Roku Gin from the Suntory distillery in Japan. Turns out, he liked one and hated one. Then, we talk about good conduct regarding cigars, alcohol and smartphones while you’re at the casino.
Bill returns for Part III of our foray into rum, this time touching on some overproof spirits. Then we wrap up our two-parter about state regulatory reform for the gaming industry. Tony reviews the Hoya de Monterrey Epicure No. 2 — a Cuban puro — then Jason slides into home plate with a Cigar Factory New Orleans Plantation Reserve cigar.
Jason and Tony enjoy a Cohiba Ciglo No. 6 cigar, fresh from Tony’s vacation to Jamaica. The viceroys of vice talk about selling Caesars. Then we’re joined by our friend Bill, a rum connoisseur and occasional consumer judge, for the first of a multi-part series exploring the wild, wooly world of rum. This week: An Appleton Estates sampler.
Podcast 407, 4/7/19 … Indulge your vices with a tasty, tasty VLOhattan Cocktail before we riff about the La Galera 1936 box-pressed cigar. We wrap up with the “other half” …
We spend a long, long time with the Ramos Gin Fizz cocktail before launching into an introductory Q&A about slots.
This is the Agenda for the meet-up with The Bettor Life and The Vice Lounge Online.
