Our favorite Irish pub Jake O'Connors has been running a weekly promo where patrons pick the winners of that week's NFL games. They are hoping to bring in the crowds on football Sundays. I was notified, and am happy to announce, that I won this little promo -- for the SECOND time last week!
There are two reasons why this is important. First, I love hanging out at Jakes and for winning this little promo I get a meal and free drinks during an upcoming Vikings game (x2) giving me yet another reason to visit. Second, our fearless fellow blogger Rhett was with me on both occasions and obviously didn't make the grade with his picks.
Rhett may have bragging rights on his unbelievably cheap Balvenie Doublewood find but I get double bragging rights at The Pub and street cred on my football knowledge. FYI, it took me all of 15 seconds to enter those picks. Ouch.
OK, maybe I'll share my winnings with him.
Separately, we need to ping our source about potential supply issues regarding Dageo and the Caol Isla distillery... It appears we have a problem north of the border. Stay tuned.
In other news, I have road trips planned to Washington DC and Chicago. I look forward to on site blog updates.
