Before it even got a chance to run the drunken streets of downtown, the LA Beerathon was cancelled by the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. Yikes, party foul much? Continue Reading
It’s hard to drive around LA and not visit some place that Magic Johnson has his name on. From TGI Fridays, AMC theaters, Burger Kings, Starbucks and 24 Hour Fitness – Magic Johnson has done a good job in getting his hands into all facets of LA life. Not only is he a Los Angeles Lakers great, but he was a former owner of the team as well until he sold his shares to one of the richest men in Los Angeles two years ago.
His reasoning for parting with the Lakers franchise – he wanted to be like Mike (Michael Jordan that is) and own one himself. According to NBA regulations though, you can’t have partial stock in a team and own another. After the sale though, little was mentioned from him in regards to owning a NBA team and the new buzz in the streets was that Magic really was interested in helping to bring a NFL team to Los Angeles ; and owning it. Even though things seemed promising with people chattering about the proposed building of Farmers Field next to the Staple Center; two years later, the talks about bringing a football team to LA have died down – though Magic’s interest in owning a team didn’t.

Ever wonder what it would be like if really hot girls acted like total bros and if all boys ever wanted to do was dance? Continue Reading
It’s about time that a female basketball player is doing something impressive. Though I played basketball myself, I never was into watching women’s games because of the fact it was well, boring. It amazes me how many of these women are averaging 6’4 but for some reason never make an effort to have the same showmanship as their male counterparts. I know the ability is there – heck at 5’10 I was able to grab rim so someone 6 inches taller should be doing a whole lot more than me.
923 days and 27 tournaments later (but whose counting) Tiger Woods has finally won his first golf tournament since 2009 on Sunday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational . I think Tiger can now breathe a sigh of relief. Though it took him almost 3 years, it’s refreshing to finally have his name in the press for something other than his never ending list of ladies.
While bartending at the Anthill Pub this week, my ears perked up when I heard a male voice ask for the “Trois Pistoles.” I whipped my head around and my gaze fell on two guys nonchalantly leaning over the bar, inquiring about ordering a bottle of dark ale. I was impressed, to say the least. Think of it in terms of donning a slick and tailored suit: Your beer preference is part of your style, an indicator of your level of debonair. So here’s a quick rundown of why men who drink good beer are oh-so sexy: Continue Reading
Lacing refers to the foam that clings to the sides of a glass of beer. Beer enthusiasts often associate a brew’s quality to how much of the web-like foam is left after you’ve finished your drink. The more lacing, the better the brew. If you find yourself staring at an empty glass void of the desired beer lattice, it’s probably due to a lack of care taken during the brewing process or the use of low-quality ingredients. That, or you just have a dirty glass. (An oily glass will prevent the foam from sticking to the sides.)
Note: Some beers like lambics, are excused from this rule due to low head retention. Continue Reading
