Anyone going to the Chick-Fil-A Bowl later this month?

Try walking in with one of these and see what happens.

After a particularly bourbon-soaked evening in Salt Lake City last weekend, we boarded an afternoon flight back to Reno feeling somewhat less-than-100%. Had I known that I could have brought an emotional support chicken from the Popeye's in the terminal, tha flight might have been more pleasant!

Tahoe, if there's such a thing as hard liquor in Utah, and if you're the type of person who can find it if there is...

Can we board with an emotional support pitcher of Salty Dogs?

High West Distillery out of Park City makes a pretty damn fine bourbon. Even better rye. And if you really want a fun one, they make a half-and-half "BouRye."

But we were drinking at a downtown Salt Lake City bar called, appropriately enough, "Whiskey Bar." Everything from Old Crow ($6.00) to 23-year old Pappy ($250.00) on the shelves. The only caveat is that in Utah, they are required to use a measured-pour system that restricts pours to exactly 1 fluid ounce. Or, in the parlance of Moj--a sip.

I heard they've got an in-house cocktail that's a mixture of Jim Beam and aftershave called a "Dennis Rodman".

I had 6 or 7 of those one night--woke up in North Korea in a wedding dress, made nice with a chubby kid with a bad haircut, and scored an invitation to the White House!

But were you able to rebound the shit out of basketballs?

I did pretty good against the chubby North Korean kid, and from what I understand, he holds several world records.

The kid also apparently plays golf like George Clooney walking into a whorehouse with a pocket full of Cartier tennis bracelets.

you mean he can't sink a long putt?

I just woke the kid from LOLing so loud
