Genesee and Jack at The Annex

Genesee & Jack Daniel's

It’s been forever and a day since I’ve added a new Beer Shots entry – all the way back in August! To be fair, I haven’t been all that good of a blogger recently at all. With that being said, what better to get back into it than with a shot from one of my favorite dives on the planet… The Annex. I went to The Annex a while back to get a burger for … Continue reading

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

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

The First Non Sudsy Beer Shot – Bushmills Irish Whiskey

Bushmills Irish Whiskey

I started the Beer Shots category here on the blog as my response / version of all the “foodie” blogs on the web.  I’m a huge beer fan and not just for the “Let’s go out and get hammered” aspect… I genuilly love the stuff.  In addition to beer though, I’m a HUGE whiskey fan.  So… as of this post, I figured I’m going to expand Beer Shots into all things drinking in the world … 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

Potential Agenda For Mania Weekend

The Potential Agenda For WrestleMania 29 Weekend

As I get older, I tend to actually “plan” things less and less.  Actually, now that I think about it, age really has nothing to do with it.  Ever since I got married I rely on the Wife for my planning needs.  I’m not quite sure where I’d be without her. That said, when it comes to a Pip / Chewie weekend I’m pretty much on my own.  I’m guessing that ever since Pip got … Continue reading

Father’s Day 2012

Breakfast In Bed For Father's Day

Sunday was Father’s Day and I wanted to make sure that I get this posted before I forget the details of a glorious day.  I was woken on Sunday morning the sounds of the boys downstairs.  I was in and out of sleep, but that’s pretty normal on the weekends when Mom & Dad tend to sleep in a bit and the boys are raring to go.  Through my sleep haze, I could have sworn … Continue reading

The First Annex TweetUp

The First Ever Annex Tweetup

I’ve never been the type of guy to go to “the club” for a night out.  When I go out with my friends, I’d much prefer a place where you can have a few (dozen) drinks, some good bar food, fire up the jukebox and have a good old bar conversation.  Luckily, Cleveland’s east side is home to the absolute greatest bar in the world for just such a night… The Annex. I’ve been a … Continue reading

A HUGE Oversight – The Annex

The Annex Bar & Grille

I was reviewing my Beer Shots earlier today and I realized that I’d made a grave mistake by inadvertently omitting the greatest bar in the world.  The Annex Bar & Grille is the best “home town bar” you’ll ever run across and it’s my #1 choice when I’m headed out.  In addition to probably the greatest decor ever, you want a great burger?  Good lord… this is the place to be.

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
