Why Bingo isn’t just for older ladies

man-1205084_640

Say the word Bingo and the image that will probably spring to mind is that of older ladies sitting in a hall ticking numbers off a card, but that image could not be more wrong. Bingo has been enjoying a revival, thanks in part to the availability of online and mobile versions of the game. Gaming for guys does not always have to mean first-person shooters.

Drink of the Week: Rye’d N Dirty

Rye'd N Dirty.In the U.S., whiskey cannot be sold as rye unless it is distilled from at least 51 percent rye grain. In Canada, there is no such rule. Therfore, as I understand it, a lot of what we call Canadian whiskey over here is known as rye north of the border, even though corn and other grains may be a great deal more dominant. For this reason, American rye has long had a more distinctively peppery flavor than it’s Canuck cousin. Lately, however, Canadian brands have been getting into the act with ryes that pass stateside muster.

And so it was that I was turned on to today’s fine cocktail by my friends at Canadian Club…and they really are my friends, as they sometimes send me free stuff and tasty cocktails, in this case their new Canadian Club 100% Rye. Often sold for less than $20.00 a bottle, this all-rye rye is a worthy alternative to such value priced standbys as Pikesville and Old Overholt. Comparing it to regular, blended Canadian Club, it’s less mellow, hotter and spicier, though not as peppery as some of the pricier ryes. It definitely makes for a bold Old Fashioned or Manhattan.

The CC 100% also definitely works pretty brilliantly in our Drink of the Week, which features a burst of additional heat and spice from a non-whiskey source.

Product Review: Sub-Ohm POD-MOD Vaporizer

Mistic 2.0 Pod-Mod

Have you ever vaped? Sure, I had seen friends and neighbors carrying around their personal vaping devices, but had never used one myself.

If you’re an adult vaper, you probably like to switch between a variety of flavors but don’t like the hassle of cleaning or filling your tanks. As I discovered, with most vaporizers, this is the norm. But one vapor company has reinvented the vaping experience. Mistic has just rolled out the 2.0 POD-MOD and, having never vaped before, I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

I’ve seen the clunky, behemoth vape my neighbor Bob lugs around while he’s doing yardwork. But by improving ease of use with the new Mistic 2.0 POD-MOD, it enables Bob to quickly and easily change flavor tanks using the company’s pre-filled pod technology.

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton in line to win first ring

8 2016 Gatorade POY

NFL.com may not be a football betting website, but if NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt’s predictions are to be credited, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton tops the list of quarterbacks who could win their first NFL championship ring in 2016, surpassing the likes of Carson Palmer, Andy Dalton, Alex Smith and Teddy Bridgewater. Newton may have retired the ‘Dab’ and sport a new look with a blonde goatee and straw hat, but if he keeps up his gridiron performance from last season, he may very well be set to disrupt the dominance of Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger and the Manning brothers – who have won 10 of the past 15 Super Bowls.
