WEBSTER HALL BRINGING A LITTLE COUNTRY TO THE CITY

EAST VILLE HOEDOWN ON SATURDAY, August 16, 2014

Hot damn I know where I will be at this Saturday! That’s right folks, they are doing it AGAIN!  Not too long ago there was a rompin’ stompin’ good time at East Ville de Folies and East Ville des Carnivale events. After the rip-roaring success of the last East Ville event, Webster Hall will host its 1st annual Beer, Whiskey, Moonshine, Bacon and BBQ event – called East Ville Hoedown. The countrified event is scheduled to take place on August 16, 2014 encompassing all four floors of Webster Hall!

YEE-HAW!

Now, I am the type of guy that enjoys a cold beer. Listens to live bands. Kicks back with a tasty whiskey now and then. Has partaken in a shot of moonshine or two. Of course, I love my bacon and BBQ! Yet, who has time to stroll out to the country? So, these good folks decided to bring the country to the city! It will feature your favorite Americana beers, the best whiskeys, bourbons and white lightning Kentucky and Tennessee has to offer. The event will also enable consumers to taste bacon in ways you never imagined along with mouthwatering BBQ. Hot dang! I am already drooling as I am typing this! Bacon!

Well, that was something out of the ordinary! When going away on vacation the majority of normal people out there do something relaxing and fun. You know, the normal stuff like laying on an island beach, going on a cruise, doing Vegas or Disney, maybe even jetsetting to Europe to see the world. Some even do the staycation thing or hang out visiting family. Nope, not me being the mildly disturbed individual that I am. For some idiotic reason I decided to train for months to start my vacation off with a Tough Mudder which is one of the more grueling events one can partake. They even make you sign a “Death Waiver” to be allowed to participate. Not only is it physically demanding but also mentally taxing especially when running it solo as I did. I targeted the July 12th Upstate NY event. For months leading up to this my nights and many mornings included jogging for miles, lifting weights, and basically living in a gym. Eating healthier. I can’t say that it was a total waste of time as it sure paid off! In fact, I had a blast at the Mudder and actually did pretty well. Other than some minor injuries, bruises, and scrapes I walked off that course feeling like a champ and exhilarated. It was an amazing feeling knowing that I succeeded doing something I set out as a personal goal, and overall not many people can claim to taking on the challenge of this event and conquering it. Definitely not a walk through the park.

I am now a proud member of Mudder Nation! Continue reading I conquered Tough Mudder and lived to tell about it! Hoorah!

50 Shades! The Musical. Raunchy, filthy, sexy fun in NYC.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

Laughed our asses off from start to finish. 50 Shades! The Musical is an absolutely hysterical skewering of the book 50 Shades of Grey. This was a total raunchfest with so many funny lines, zingers, and double-entendres throughout. The songs were brilliant on the scale of the dirtiest South Park comes up with. Sharp writing and brisk direction made this 90 minute show breeze by. So many laughs. So much fisting!

Eye candy for the ladies, and some eye candy for the men. Even a really funny full-on banging simulated sex session in the middle of the audience that took everyone by surprise and elicited uproarious laughter! Continue reading 50 Shades! The Musical. Raunchy, filthy, sexy fun in NYC.

Cirque du Soleil – Amaluna under the Grand Chapiteau in NYC!

Both my gal and I have seen many Cirque Du Soleil shows over the years and I can undeniably say that I am a big fan. So when we were offered the chance to attend the premier night event and afterparty of course we jumped at the opportunity as we had not seen Amaluna before. We knew we were in for a special evening for as soon as we stepped inside the big top tent were were greeted by servers in costume handing us glasses of champagne. Yes, please! Sure, I’ll have three or four of those. There was a terrific mix of people in attendence to see the show and everyone mingled among the exhibits, performers, and interactive showcases for the hour before showtime. There was a feeling of excitement in the air, and as we were led into the main seating area surrounding the stage everyone was taken in by the colors and sounds our senses were treated to.

We were now in the world of Amaluna – a mysterious island where beauty and courage await! Continue reading Cirque du Soleil – Amaluna under the Grand Chapiteau in NYC!
