So, I just learned that my local drinking haunt, The Blue Banana is no more. Great bar, great people, so many firstdrinks… it was ground zero to my 2012 Adventures. DC has lost a great local bar, but the memories remain.
I’ll be pulling together a “best of the blue banana” post sometime later this weekend, but until then, enjoy this moment of silence… (…)
I’m back from Ohio with 3 new posts to write instead of 5. I suck. Oh the Holidays. So I have to pen a few back-logged posts, get the Ohio posts written and then re-schedule/Skype the 2 remaining. I blame the alcohol. I was warned. I was warned.
The holidays and trying to write my blog are not jiving.
JIVING - present participle of jive (Verb)
1. Perform the jive or a similar dance to popular music.
2. Taunt or sneer at.
3. Connecting, collaborating.
So while the drinking-for-the-blog will end in the New Year, blogging the drinks pre-New Year will go a bit into January. Got that? Good.
I’m pretty pumped right now. I’m about to head over to Nanny O’Briens shortly to tape my 2nd and final podcast show over at the No Call No Show with the chatty bartending boys, Michael & Daniel. This is one of the final 10 I named “The Co-Hosts”.
My first visit was a great one (a 2-parter no less) and they asked me to come by one final time to talk drinking, blogging, and madness over my first taste of moonshine.
Dear lord, please let it be fruit flavored. With a beer back. And a juice chaser.
I’m bringing a toothbrush.
So I’ll let you all know when the podcast drops, but this is a great opportunity to catch up on some of my older posts and to hear my terrible radio voice. And by terrible I mean, not horrible, but I doubt anyone is going to call me to do voice-over or book-on-tape work. *sigh*
