TBT – Floyd’s Wedding

Welcome to today’s Throwback Thursday! The timing of this one is sort of ironic as 406 Founding Father Floyd just celebrated his 14th wedding anniversary yesterday! Here’s the original album that we shared on the site way back when he got married. It just goes to show you that whether at “home” at 406 or out on the town, these folks know how to party! Congrats and happy anniversary my man! Do you have any other 406 … Continue reading

TBT – Gookins’ Wedding

Gookins Wedding (8)

Welcome to today’s Throwback Thursday! Our good friend Ryan Gookins spent many a days and nights at 406 (seeing as he lived right across the parking lot). Here’s the original album that we shared on the site way back when he got married. Gotta love drinking directly from the Bud Light tap and (Pip?) double fisting bottles of booze. That needs to be your profile picture everywhere sir… Do you have any other 406 related photos? Send … Continue reading

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

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

It All Comes Back To Pro Wrestling

The Mountie

In case you’ve been living under a rock there was a wedding this morning.  Prince William married “commoner” Miss Catherine (a.k.a. Kate) Middleton.  I’m happy to say that I completely ignored the hype for this story.  I didn’t give a shit, didn’t set my DVR, and didn’t stay up late to watch it.  However… as I was kissing the wife & kids goodbye this AM I turned on the TV and the live coverage happened … Continue reading

You Really Can’t Go Wrong With Some Kenny Loggins

Kenny Loggins Album

I’ve said it time and time again… I’m a geek. 80’s movies are my wheelhouse ranging anywhere from science fiction to action movies to horror. Many times these movies come complete with some cheesy soundtrack and when we’re talking soundtracks no one does it better than the man… Kenny Loggins. I’m Alright – Caddyshack (1980) I can’t embed it here, but if you want THE edition of this song you’ve got to check it out … Continue reading

Team Pip Adds A New Member

Lauren & Pip's First Kiss

So if you’ve been keeping up here, you know that ol Pip went and got himself married this past weekend.  The wife and I went back to my old stomping grounds of Bloomington, Indiana to partake in the festivities… and partake we did! We rolled in on Friday evening just in time for the wedding rehearsal and dinner.  The Pips decided to get married at a BEAUTIFUL facility on the south side of Bloomington called … Continue reading
