Pins & Pinups 2015


Guys, I’ve been MIA lately and I apologize a bit for that but for good reason…I’ve been drinking. Oops.

Anyway, Charlotte has been really stinkin’ busy with all kinds of events and on┬áMonday, the Queen City hosted Pins & Pinups with Playboy and Sailor Jerry.

12 teams competed to win a trip to Pensacola for a chance to whip up on other cities for the title of Best Bar Bowling Team in the U.S. (I don’t really know if that’s the actual title, but you get the idea).

Congrats to Tilt On Trade for winning 2nd year in a row!!! That beast of a team bowled a whopping 573 all while pounding their share of Sailor Jerry pickleback shots!!

Thanks to Playboy and Sailor Jerry for showing the QC some love, check out the pictures of the shenanigans HERE!!

End of Summer Southern Social


It’s no secret that I love music and booze and combining the two is my absolute favorite thing ever! So we’ve teamed up with the guys at the NC Music Factory to bring a fantastic show to the Carolinas.

With other sponsors like Pabst Blue Ribbon , Ink Floyd and Price’s Chicken Coop, Tito’s Handmade Vodka and Sailor Jerry are ecstatic to be a part of this amazing group of music lovers to bring you St. Paul & The Broken Bones on September 11, 2015.

Guys, not only is St. Paul gonna rock the fountain stage but we’ve got great southern cocktails like Tito’s Lemonade and Cheerwine spiked with Sailor Jerry!

The best part, tickets are only $10. Yep, 10 bones (pun intended) will get you in to see a fantastic show! Click HERE for tickets.

We’d love to see you guys out there, be sure to buy your tix early because this show will absolutely sell out!!!


My Birthday Party!!!


So I’ve been going around telling everyone that Andrew W.K. is playing my birthday party. Technically, this is not a lie, he really is performing at Neighborhood Theatre on September 10th! That just so happens to be my date of birth so you see how one would assume that Mr. W.K is indeed performing at my birthday party.

Not only that, but Sailor Jerry is a sponsor, so this means, lots of rum cocktails for everyone to enjoy. Scowl Brow and Hungry girl are also performing, so without a doubt this is going to be one hell of a celebration.

You can find tickets HERE!

You should come, not just because it’s Andrew W.K. but because I want you to! See you fools there, cupcakes are welcome!
