The Embrace Heard Around the World

By now, you have probably heard (or seen) “The Embrace” that involved two parties that no one thought would ever come together. If you haven’t, you are clearly living under a rock.
There were talks about it in 97’ but it ended up not happening.

The coverage of the event this time was unbelievable and at some points, overwhelming. The pictures are almost comical with one figure towering over the other.

With that aside, the event was historic and a first of its kind.
People from both sides weren’t sure how to feel about what was going on.

“I think it’s a good thing. It’s the first time either side has had a chance to come away victorious. We know there will be some push and pull and one side will, undoubtedly, get the better of the other.” – Jason F.
“I haven’t stopped drinking since its conclusion. I still can’t believe it happened.”  - Alex O.

Those are just a few of the reactions after this historic event.
Who knows what next year has in store for us. For now, just be happy you were able to be a part of history.

And if you are in Washington, enjoy it while it last.

Vegas 182

Vegas Baby, Vegas!
In two weeks, myself (Ken) and an STOB fan favorite, Mr. Online; will be heading out to Las Vegas.

We are heading out west with hopes of getting drunk, winning a jackpot or two and sitting by the pool at The Linq. I’m pretty sure two out of three of those agenda items will be easily accomplished.

Drinks are never hard to come by and the pool at The Linq is always a good time.

It doesn’t end there though.
While we are out there, Blink 182 will be playing their 2nd weekend of shows for their first ever residency at the newly renovated Palms Casino.

I’ve been a fan of Blink since middle school, so I do feel old as hell now that they are the new Celin Dion’s of Vegas. Either way, I’m going to the show. I have to.
The Pearl Theatre is a smaller venue so that alone makes it worth the ticket price (Anywhere from $50-$100). You might think that price is steep but its Vegas. A bottle of water is $9.

Even though it’s not the “original” lineup, my money is on it still being a really good show.
They are promising to play tracks that haven’t been played in years and longer sets as well. And who knows, there might even be some special guests that show up.

Go to the Palms website and buy tickets. Also, go to the Linq website and book a daybed or cabana for this summer, you won’t be mad about it.
Well that’s it for now. I’m sure I’ll get bored within the days leading up to us leaving and post something us.

Until then, cheers.

Ken & Sam Ep. 20 - “La Croix or La Crap?”

Ken and Sam drink some La Croix and talk about random crap.

Listen to it here.

Advice for All Guys - Urinal Etiquette

It happens all too often – The odd number of urinals situation.
We have all been there before. It sucks. It’s frustrating. It’s insane. It’s annoying.

I think I’m come up with a rule that could prevent this situation from ever happening again.

That rule? If you are the only person in a restroom where there are an odd number of urinals, DON’T USE THE MIDDLE ONE!

I get it; you probably suck at math.

To help you, here is a simple example:
“Use…DON’T USE…Use”

If that’s not simple enough for you; perhaps you should just stay home and away from the general public. I’m sure there is a surplus of empty 2 liter soda bottles near your futon that you can wiz in.

I mean honestly, why do men continue to screw this up? Are too many options causing them to freak out and forget common sense? Do they enjoy the “thrill” of having a person walk in, look at the situation and seeing said person end up using the stall?

What is it!?
Figure it out guys.

2018 French Quarter Fest - Review

Last month myself and Mr. Online ventured down to New Orleans, LA for our 1st experience with the amazing French Quarter Fest.

Simply put, it was awesome.

Live music everywhere, delicious food around every corner and southern hospitality everywhere you were.

All of the music and sight seeing was free. Food and drink were VERY reasonably priced for such a large event. Even if they charged a cover it would be well worth it.

All of the food and music were provided by local artists and restaurants. Why wouldn’t it be? The city is known for both!

The weather was also delightful (Minus the rainout on Saturday). 

As far as festivals and events go, this one is going to be hard to top. I’d say book your room and flights as soon as possible and get down there in 2019.

If for some reason you don’t have fun, just stay home on your couch forever.
