Abbey Road vs. Kirkwood Ave

Pip Anniversary

So my good buddy Pip celebrated his 9th (!) anniversary yesterday! To say time has flown by is an understatement. I remember his wedding like it was yesterday and thanks to Facebook I got to look through those memories and photos again today. One of my all time favs is this one from photographer Stephenie Cobb Knoll who awesomely re-created the Abbey Road album cover on the corner of Kirkwood Ave in Bloomington. In case … Continue reading

Official WrestleMania 35 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 35 Logo 2019 Square

WrestleMania 35 will be held on Sunday, April 7, 2019 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. As of this writing I’m not sure if Pip will be joining me this year. If I had to guess at this point I’d say no. That said for the second year in a row will be my brother Mark and I (and my kids) watching the show. I don’t even think I did a Beeramid recap … Continue reading

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

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

Official WrestleMania 34 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 34 Logo Square

WrestleMania 34 will be held on April 8, 2018 at Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. Sadly, Pip won’t be joining me this year so it will be Mark and I (and my kids) watching the show. As I’ve outlined earlier this morning I doubt we’re going to make an attempt at the Beeramid this year but I’ve had several questions on if we were going to put our list out this year so here … Continue reading

The WrestleMania 33 Beeramid – The Last Ride?

WrestleMania 33 Beeramid

Father Time is undefeated. He quite literally never loses. At WrestleMania 33 last year we saw what was presumably the final match of The Undertaker’s career (until they decide to roll him out again in the next six weeks in preparation for WrestleMania 34). For over a decade now Pip and I have been building the structure known simply as “The Beeramid” while we watch WrestleMania. Several years back we started to produce our yearly … Continue reading

Official WrestleMania 33 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 33 Logo (2017)

WrestleMania 33 will be held on April 2, 2017 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. Once again this year, Pip, Mark and I will renew our feud with the most fearsome structure known to guys who pretend they’re much younger than they actually are… The Beeramid. Starting way back with WrestleMania 25 Drinking game in 2009, we’ve chronicled our rules here on the site. It’s pretty tremendous to be able to look back at the … Continue reading

The WrestleMania 32 Beeramid – Return To Form

WrestleMania 32 Beeramid

WrestleMania 33 is just a matter of weeks away taking place on April 2nd, 2017. As has been the case for the last several years Pip will once again make the trek to CLE and we’ll rekindle our relationship with the one and only… Beeramid. As we do every year we’ll also come up with a drinking game to help us along the way and as I sat down tonight to start putting that together … Continue reading

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
