Vodka and Cocks

Now that I’ve got your attention..

My had a little warm-up to my weekend off early on last week. I was looking at a local news site after work and discovered Dan Aykroyd (SNL, Ghostbusters, Coneheads, Blues Brothers) was going to be on a bar crawl of sorts. He was in town to promote is new vodka – Crystal Head Vodka. I loved Ghostbusters as a kid and I’m always up for a little adventure, so I checked around and found a couple friends to head downtown to try and catch him.

We went to Mad River, which I usually hate, but there was no cover on this night and it was quiet. We had a couple beers and waited…and waited…finally he arrived (about an hour and half late). He proceeded to walk around for a little bit and disappeared just as soon as he had appeared. Kind of lame, but still neat to see him for a little bit.

After Mad River, we ended up at the Blind Tiger Pub, which I really enjoyed. I definitely want to head back there soon. We tried the new vodka with cranberry juice and it was quite delicious. I would pick up my own bottle if it wasn’t like $50 for such a small amount.

This past Satuday a group of us went to Columbia to see the University of South Carolina Gamecocks take on the Florida Atlantic Owls…..but really we went to tailgate and then drunkenly enjoy a football game.

Tailgating was blast. We played cornhole, grilled some burgers, and just hung out. The game itself was decent, but I spent a lot of time watching the Owls’ mascot dance around like Michael Jackson.

The highlight of the night was probably rocking out to dmb on the way home. I feel bad for the two who tried to sleep in the back seat…

    Dan Akroyd is pretty damn awesome. But wouldn’t you prefer to move home? We have murderers who make national headlines here, and have the same name as people you graduated high school with. Duhh.

  2. Love the title. Totally got my attention. I watched SO MUCH football this past week. And there is more to come! I’m going to a Razorback game when I’m in Arkansas next month. SO EXCITED to tailgate!

  3. I recently discovered cornhole at a wedding last month. LOVE.

  4. J – Um..I’m good on the whole murderers thing

    Beth – Yay football! Tailgating is amazing and Arkansas should be a lot of fun to watch!

    LiLu – Cornhole at a wedding? That’s….amazing
