    Alcohol Quest #8: Beerventure 2 – Beer Harder

    Big Dub and Widgett Walls carouse at Hotoberfest Atlanta 2012

    Having finally gotten around to putting together the video (or recovering from the activities in the video–you be the judge), we bring you the sequel to our previous Beerventure in which we went in search of the North American Red Robin Sam Adams Octoberfest Milkshake. This time around Need Coffee sent Big Dub the Mighty along with Widgett Walls to sample as many beers as possible at Hotoberfest 2012, which was held in Atlanta on October 6th of last year.

    What resulted was an increasing amount of beer, drunkenness, excess, pizza, mead and also beer. And a pair of weirdos with snifters who became increasingly incoherent as the day wore on. Spoilers: it all ends passed out on a couch. Enjoy. They did.

    DragonCon 2012: All Over Now But the Shouting (Which Never Ends)

    2012 DragonCon Fun Fest final act

    Because nothing says Happy Dance like the dance that comes from destroying a bit of cultural detritus.

    So…DragonCon. Like most years, it descended upon Atlanta and our lives like one of those motherships out of V. And like most years, our sense of time and place was devoured just like Diana from V snacking on a guinea pig.

    The strangeness of that pair of similes is testament to the slow road to recovery that all DragonCon survivors feel. Just for the record.

    Other members of Need Coffee might have different stories to share, but here’s mine:

    We started with Make the Bad Men Stop, our traditional opening panel held at Leigh’s X-Track. The podcast version is forthcoming, but suffice to say we spent a great deal of time talking about Marvel movies, DC movies, plus a bit about The Dark Tower among other things. As I warned the audience, Need Coffee panels meander from topic to topic until guidance comes in the form of input from the audience. And if you’re thinking that perhaps our regular podcasts could use such influence, remember that these audience comments form suggestions. Our chaos cannot be reliably channeled.

    Adventures at the International Market

    Mong Lee Shang Pearl Soybean Drink with Tapioca Balls and Mung Bean Flavour!

    I’m fortunate to live in an area of Atlanta that has a different international market on every corner. This opens up a variety of options to me as far as bizarre snacks, questionable ingredients and general experimentation. And I do love experimentation.

    While we enjoy the cheap meats, hard-to-find ingredients and overall selection at the markets, one of our favorite things to do is to buy something strange-looking and just try it. You never know when you’ll find that one thing that you didn’t know you loved yet and can’t live without. Personally, I tend to focus on drinks. You can tell a lot about a culture by looking at what they drink.

    For example, people in Taiwan like things that taste gross. I’m not making this up. If you are lucky (?) enough to try a delicious (?), freshly chilled can of Mong Lee Shang’s Pearl Soybean Drink (with tapioca ball) in Mung Bean Flavor, you’ll agree that the Taiwanese sure do drink things that taste like mung bean. Ahh…tastes like cultural enlightenment to me!
