A Surprising But Welcome Email – AMC Is Back On Dish!!!

DISH Customers - AMC Is Back

I received an email yesterday afternoon that shocked the hell out of me.  In fact, when I first read the headline I thought it may have been a prank: “DISH Customers: AMC Is Back!” I immediately did some Googling and sure enough found out that the legal battle between DISH Network and Cablevision which had caused AMC to be removed from my channel lineup had in fact been settled!  So I’m getting back one of … Continue reading

Cleveland Browns Opening Day 2012

Chewie & His Wife

So this post is way overdue, but I’m going to do it any way.  The Wife and I had an opportunity to go to the first Cleveland Browns football game of the season a couple of weeks ago.  Opening Day for the Browns is typically the best day of the season seeing as by week 5 or so they’ve lost all their games and people are already talking about the next quarterback, coach or draft … Continue reading

Running Out Of Gas In A Traffic Jam

Out Of Gas

So the other night I was driving home from work and I noticed that I was getting a bit low on gas. When I get below a quarter of a tank or so I start thinking about where/when I’m going to fill up next. (For iPhone users out there, check out the app GasBuddy. It’ll save you a TON of money at the pump.) I was running a bit late as the wife had to … Continue reading

Progressive Field – Baseball & Beer

Progressive Field - Day Game Outfield

It’s been a while since I’ve put together a Beer Shots post though that’s certainly not because I haven’t been taking them.  As I was going through my pics to be added to the site, I realized that I’ve got multiple shots from some of my favorites places – The Annex & The Winking Lizard immediately spring to mind.  With that being said, I made the decision to move away from my normal “one image per … 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

My First Trip To The Horseshoe Cleveland

Horseshoe Casino Cleveland

After many years, Cleveland finally has a casino!  Just last week, the Horseshoe Casino opened up downtown and so far it’s gotten rave reviews.  There were people lined up around the block to get in and there were lines to get into the place for quite a few days after it’s grand opening.  I’m not going to bother rehashing all of the political maneuvering it took to get it here.  Suffice to say it was … Continue reading

Cleveland Indians Opening Day 2012

As I do just about every year, last week I attended Opening Day for my beloved Cleveland Indians.  I managed to take one picture as I walked into the stadium.  If you’d like to see more, check out my post from last year.  Our seats were essentially the same and with the exception of Pip, so were the people. Once again, the Tribe managed to lose the opener, but this year they did it in … Continue reading

Petrus At The Winking Lizard

Petrus At The Winking Lizard

If you’ve never been to the Winking Lizard (@winkinglizard on Twitter) you’re missing out.  They’ve got some of the best wings in Cleveland, have several locations to choose from and have a TON of beers for your tasting pleasure.  This year, I’m participating in the 2012 World Tour of Beers.  This Petrus was #32 on the year.

Thomecoming At Progressive Field

Welcome Thome!

My all time favorite baseball player is Jim Thome.  When he left my beloved Cleveland Indians in 2002 it was a very sad day for me.  So when I heard the news the other night that the Indians had claimed him off waivers from the Twins you can imagine how I felt… I wasn’t sure if I was dreaming or not.  I was elated when I woke up the other morning and read the news … Continue reading
