Collision Bend Brewery

My brother and I attended Wizard World Comic Con back in March and then stumbled on to an outstanding brewery in Cleveland – Collision Bend Brewery. Collision Bend is located at 1250 Old River Rd which is sort of an out of the way spot for a brewery but it’s well worth your time to check it out. They had a slew of beers to choose from and their flight prices were outstanding. They had a … Continue reading

12 Years Ago Today… I Took Control

July 24th is a day that I’ve always got circled on my calendar. It’s the anniversary of the day that I took my life back. 12 years ago today, I quit chewing tobacco. For nearly 18 years I chewed Kodiak, Skoal and Copenhagen on a daily basis… sometimes more than a can per day. Quitting was at the same time one of the most rewarding and most difficult things that I’ve ever done. My wonderful … Continue reading

7 Cocktails With Whiskey That Will Blow Your Mind

Whiskey

Parties are incomplete without cocktails. Any generic alcoholic drink having two or more than two ingredients earns itself the title of a cocktail. Does not matter if you are a professional bartender, or assume the role of one for your house party, you should absolutely be familiar with the nitty-gritty of some drinks. From sweet to dry, hot to icy, stirred to shaken, the number of cocktails available today is overwhelming. Selecting a few out … Continue reading

Money In The Bank (2018)

Money in the Bank (2018)

Last Sunday night, the WWE held its annual Money In The Bank event live on the WWE Network at the Allstate Arena. It was the ninth event under the Money in the Bank chronology. I’m thrilled to say that WWE is back to monthly PPV shows rather than the oppressive twice a month schedule. That said I’ve cut WAY back on my wrestling viewing for a variety of reasons including being just too damn busy and quite frankly wrestling has … Continue reading

The Whiskey Wedge = Great Gift

Whiskey Wedge

Yesterday was Father’s Day. As they always do, my family treated me to an awesome day with some outstanding gifts (a new Cleveland shirt, Tribe hat, etc.) I was surfing Facebook this AM and ran across a friend who had received this product and I figured this was a great day to feature it on Beer Shots. The Whiskey Wedge helps you achieve a nice cold pour while avoiding watering down your favorite libation. I got … Continue reading

Praying to the Porcelain God

Heather Toilet

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Pic From 406 entry and I figured this was as good as any to get us kickstarted again. This week’s entry for Throwback Thursday was originally posted to the site the week of January 1st, 2002 with the following caption(s): Top 5 Captions: 5. Someone’s in my bed, so I had to find some place to crash. 4. Damn, I dropped my keys… 3. Might as well paint … Continue reading

Bumblebee (2018) Trailer

Bumblebee Teaser Poster

Every Journey Has a Beginning I’d heard rumblings but if I’m being honest I either A) didn’t think it would really happen or B) forgot about it. The first trailer for Bumblebee (2018) just dropped and it shows the loveable Bee in all his Generation 1 Volkswagen Beetle glory. Bumblebee is directed by Travis Knight and written by Christina Hodson. It is centered around the titular character and a prequel to the events of the Transformers film series. It will star Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg … Continue reading

Hawaiian Vacation 2003

The Big Island of Hawaii is in the news with the recent eruption of Mount Kilauea.  Wife and I visited the back in 2003 and were lucky enough to be able to get up close to the ‘regular’ eruption which has been going for years now. Figured now was as good a time as any to finally get these pictures migrated from the old 406 server which has since been decommissioned. The images and descriptions here were … Continue reading

The Older I Get – Falling Down

The Older I Get - Falling Down

I ran across this meme the other day and it really struck me. If you’re not familiar with Falling Down it’s 1993 thriller directed by Joel Schumacher. It stars Michael Douglas as William Foster, a divorced and unemployed former defense engineer. He treks on foot across the city of Los Angeles, trying to reach the house of his estranged ex-wife in time for his daughter’s birthday party. Along the way, a series of encounters, both trivial and provocative, cause him to react … Continue reading

Red Solos at The Annex

Red Solos at The Annex

The last time I added a Beer Shots entry here on the blog I started out the post by saying, “It’s been forever and a day since I’ve added a new Beer Shots entry.” That was 14 months ago. Needless to say I’ve not been keeping up my promise to myself to be a better blogger. That said, back again tonight with a pic that… well… just feels right. The last pic was from The Annex and … Continue reading
