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

Around The Campfire

Around The Campfire

We did some camp firing this past weekend and this shot that had been in my drafts for quite some time came to mind. If memory serves me correctly this was the final camp fire at our old house before we moved. We moved out in October 2014 and moved into our new home in December after a couple month stint with the in-laws. Family. Jack on the rocks. Camp fire. S’mores. Fall is right … Continue reading

Chillwave & Jack at The Tap House

Chillwave & Jack Daniel's

The Lincoln Tap House is our regular spot for Happy Hour on Friday evenings. Some nights we just stay for a drink or two and other times it turns into a longer affair. I’m not traditionally a huge IPA fan, but there are a couple of exceptions to that and Chillwave Double IPA from Great Lakes Brewing is one of them. A shot and a beer to kick off the weekend never looked so good.

Shot and a Beer – What’s Your Choice?

Shot & A Beer

I have no idea where this picture was taken. It looks like it may be either the Winking Lizard or The Annex. Either way it looks damn good and a mighty fine way to kick off whatever evening it was. What I can tell you with a pretty high degree of certainty is that the beer was either Miller Lite or Yuengling and the shot was most definitely Jack Daniel’s. That’s my go to. Are you … Continue reading

Bump & A Beer – Fat Tony’s – Kalamazoo, MI

Beer Shots - Fat Tony's - Kalamazoo, MI

It’s been some time since I did a Beer Shots piece here on the site. When I think “shot and a beer” I’m thinking Miller and Jack and here it is. Taken at Fat Tony’s – Kalamazoo, MI which is sadly now closed. A shot of Jack Daniel’s and a cold Miller Lite to wash it down. Not sure I could ask for anything more.

Throwback Thursday – Lost Wedding Tweets

The Four Horsemen

Was going through some old drafts here on the blog and ran across this beauty. I’ve live tweeted a couple of weddings in the past (Open Bar #WeddingTweets and Live Tweeting With An Open Bar Is Outstanding!) and I did the same thing during this family wedding in the Chicago area. I’ve never seen a hotter girl look more trashy. #weddingtweets It’s always super cool when the wedding party acts like douche bags when they … Continue reading

Heaven & Hell – When An Open Bar Goes Bad

It’s been a while since I’ve added a new Beer Shot to the blog here. I was going through some old photos and saw this one and instantly thought it a candidate for something I’ll call “Heaven & Hell”. I’m a HUGE fan of going to weddings (and naturally the open bar that tends to accompany them).  These pics were taken at a wedding we went to.  Sadly, I can’t remember which wedding it was … Continue reading

Live Tweeting With An Open Bar Is Outstanding!

Whisky On The Rocks With Olives

I’ve been a really bad blogger lately.  And by “lately” I mean for the past few years. I have a tendency to start blog posts and then never get them done.  As of this writing I’ve got 21 drafts in various states of completion.  This one was started just over a year ago when Wife’s cousin Kim got married on 10/13/2012.  So… I spose this is some sort of weird anniversary present to Kim & … Continue reading

Open Bar #WeddingTweets

Whiskey - Jack On The Rocks With Olives

Went to a wedding of a family friend the other night.  I (for all intents and purposes) live tweeted the event and got some pretty positive feedback.  I’m always leery of how long Twitter will keep history like this so I’m archiving it here on the site.  Oh yeah… I also thought some of the tweets (which I’d completely forgotten… you’ll know when when you start reading) were pretty funny if I do say so … 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.
