Tony free styles this blog post with vice-y goodness!
Cigar Smoking & Camaraderie
Things to consider before lighting up in your car!
Be glad and rejoice, for today’s podcast begins with the “Jason Coffee Special, Fall Edition 2012” (we’re trying Microsoft-style naming conventions for our new signature adult beverages); this tasty drink features medium-roast coffee, Carolans Irish cream and hints of ground cinnamon, blue agave and Grand Mariner. Then, Tony shares some legal-beagle insight into The D’s cancelation of sports-bet tickets on the Jets/Packers game. The Princes of Podcasting then wrap up the episode with some reflections on cold-weather cigar smoking. Cheers!
Michigan residents might get some their freedom back!
All vices are vices insofar as they’re under control. When you lose control and become addicted — to gambling, to smoking, to drinking — you put yourself and others at risk.
Jason and Tony talk about the upcoming opening of Revel in Atlantic City, and what it means about casinos’ shift from gaming to incidental destination services like spas and restaurants. Then the guys share some tips for smoking a cigar so that you don’t look like a newbie. Jason then wraps it with a review of five classic cocktail recipes.
Podcast #33, recorded 8/28/11 — Jason and Tony talk about Social Security cards and numbers when winning big at the casino, then discuss a Michigan initiative among more than 500 bar owners to bar entry to state legislators until the state smoking ban is repealed. Then they guys talk about the Saint Luis Rey double corona, share thoughts about regional brewers and distillers, and give a shout-out to some of our recent Twitter friends.
In this week’s episode: After trying unsuccessfully to heckle Jason’s professional podcast introduction, Tony discusses “cheap” (and ethically questionable) ways of building comps. Then the guys discuss the evolution of their cigar preferences, and wrap up with a grab-bag of tips about alcohol consumption.
