The Weekend That Was WrestleMania 32

Wrestlemania 32 Weekend

I’ve got a rule. I won’t go to Indy for my yearly trip until I blog about the previous Pip / Chewie weekend. Well, I’ve broken that rule since I’m writing this recap after I returned to Indianapolis. What can I say… bad blogger. As I write this recap I’m realizing that not only did I not do our yearly recap, but I never even got around to writing my Beeramid recap for this year. Apologies … Continue reading

Big Trouble For The Dream Warriors

2015 HorrorHound Indianapolis - LoPan (original)

So it’s nearly WrestleMania time once again! In less than a week, Pip will make his yearly trek to Cleveland for a weekend of pretending we’re way younger than we actually are, movie viewing and general bad behavior. I won’t speak for him but I look forward to our twice yearly get togethers and I start counting down to his Cleveland trip pretty much from the time I pull out of his driveway on my … Continue reading

The Weekend That Was WrestleMania 31

Pip & Chewie March 2015

This post is LONG overdue. Like six months late. I got back Sunday from a trip to Indianapolis to visit Pip. I hadn’t been back since 2013 when we visited HorrorHound Weekend for the first time. This past weekend we returned to HorrorHound and had a simply AMAZING time. That said, I won’t post my recap for this weekend until I’ve recounted the last time Pip was in town. So here goes… Friday March 27th, 2015 … Continue reading

Meeting Robert Englund – Welcome To Prime Time Chewie

Robert Englund & Chewie

In a recent post I talked about how I got to cross off a bucket list item last month when Pip and I attended HorrorHound Weekend in Indianapolis and I got to meet Barry Bostwick.  The last line of that particular post I ended like this: “The weekend didn’t end there… I had another “nightmarish” encounter at the same show.  But that will be covered in another post.”  And finally… here’s the other post.  If you couldn’t … Continue reading

Meeting Barry Bostwick – The Good Guys Always Win

Chewie & Barry Bostwick

If you’ve read my stuff here you know that I’m a bit of a geek.  I tend to get a bit lost in my childhood and have a tendency to like some stuff that’s a tad bit out of the norm.  One example of this is my love for the 80’s action flick MegaForce.  It’s a supremely terrible film that I happen to absolutely love.  In fact, I listed is as #1 on my list … Continue reading

The Weekend That Was: Movies, Breweries & WrestleMania 29

Chewie With The Great Lakes Brewery Flight

I’m several weeks late on this post, but I wanted to make sure that I put a recap post together from Pip’s yearly trip to Cleveland.  Unlike recent years we actually had some semblance of an agenda that we miraculously managed to stick to!  I find that as the years go on I tend to look back on these posts more and more.  I’d like to say its because I want to look back at … Continue reading

Indianapolis Trip 2012 – Cover Band & Brewery

Pip's Guitar Complete With The 406

Last weekend was my yearly trip back to Indianapolis to see Pip.  As in previous years, I headed out on Friday afternoon and drove across “corn corridor”.  I had a couple of conference calls to take in the afternoon and luckily my boss was kind enough to let me do them from the road so I got out to an early start.  The weather sucked ass coming out of Cleveland but after about an hour or … Continue reading

The 2012 Beeramid

Beeramid 2012 (10)

WrestleMania 28 was held on April 1st.  And just as the WWE has a tradition of putting on it’s biggest pay per view of the year, Pip and I have started a bit of a tradition of our own… The Beeramid.  And for the 7th time we set out last Sunday night to once again attempt the mighty feat. I have to give HUGE props to my brother Marko for once again joining us for … Continue reading

Yearly Trip To Indy

Pip & Chewie At Nickel Plate

I recently made my yearly trek back to the Hoosier State to see brother Pip.  As always the weekend went way to quick, but it was absolutely awesome to see Pip and Lauren again.  I look forward to this trip every year and it had been a while since I’ve made the journey.  Last year, instead of going to Indy for a weekend, we made the trip to Bloomington to be with Matt & Lauren … Continue reading

The Weekend That Was: Opening Day & WrestleMania 27

Pip & Chewie At The Indian's Home Opener

Once again this year, Pip made his yearly trek to the Cleveland area for a weekend of reliving memories and debauchery.  This year’s trip happened to coincide with Opening Day for the Indians so we headed down to the stadium to take in a game with my brother Marko and buddy Al.  Pip had never been to the stadium so it was super cool to have a “first timer” there though I can’t say the … Continue reading
