Tufts Fail

YouTube Preview Image

A couple of weeks ago we had Entrepreneur Fail, so to get going this new feature ‘fail’ we’re writing about the school Tufts University located outside of Boston- they canceled their naked quad run after years of tradition and exploits. Sources say the police were "uncomfortable" about the event.

Fair compromise: drunk Tufts kids can run drunk and naked through the quad while cops compete to see who can hit the most students with a Taser. Everyone wins.

Beer Advocacy for Ninjas

Thirsty?A I’ve found myself kicking around this site lately, figuring about which beers to drink and which beers to try to brew.A This site lets beer drinkers give grades to their favorite, least favorite, and I-tried-this-because-it-had-a-weedleaf-on-the-bottle brands- a great resource for those interested in bears, uh, beers.A Check out

Based in Boston, BA was founded in 1996 by the Alstrom Brothers, Jason & Todd, who provide the site as a free resource to …

-Wake the masses to better beer options.
-Give beer consumers a voice.
-Empower them to learn, share, and advocate.
-Rally to support the beer industry.
-Put the Respect back into Beer.

BA remains solely owned and operated by the Bros, who in addition to providing this online resource publish BeerAdvocate magazine (the only monthly beer magazine of its kind), and organize several Beer Fests and events throughout the year.

"Respect Beer." is their motto.

Personally, I really liked the ShipYard Pumpkinhead….A They clearly hated it:

The Gourmet Ice Entrepreneur

Michel Dozois is pinning the success of his two-year old company on the dubious thrills of watching ice melt.

When courting new clients, Dozois, the owner of Los Angeles’s Neve Luxury Ice Company, sits them down for a simple experiment. He fills two Old Fashioned glasses with iceathe first with conventional cubes, the second with his company’s "ice rock," a single large cube, which takes up about 50 percent of the glassaand tops them with a dram of good whisky (his spirit of choice is Laphroig). Dozois then asks the potential clients to sit back and wait, allowing nature to take its course.

About every seven minutes, he asks the client to take a sipafirst of the conventional drink where the ice is rapidly melting, then of the drink made with the sturdy opaque brick of Neve ice. The second shows minimal dilution; it’s essentially whisky served neat, but much, much colder.

The Kalamazoo Beer Exchange

The Kalamazoo Beer Exchange, located at 211 E. Water St., formerly home of Charlie Fosters, opened last week for lunch only from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Once the Michigan Liquor Control Commission releases the license from escrow, owner James Flora will offer a unique concept for beer lovers.

Flora has 28 taps ready to host some of the best Michigan craft beer, as well as some imported and domestic brews.

His bar/restaurant features several TVs that will show the price of all 28 beers.

Depending on what customers purchase, the prices will rise or fall.

"It's an ever-evolving happy hour," Flora said.

Sabor Nacional - the History of Inca Kola

Stepping off a ship in the port ofACallao in 1910, a British immigrant couple called the Lindleys were starting a new life in the Americas. Little did they know that they'd become an integral part of Peru's national identity and create one of the greatest modern Peruvian icons.

The young couple established themselves in the historic working-class district ofARimac and got off to a great start. Their small up-start bottling business had taken off and their soft drinks were enjoyed by locals. They had since started a family and integrated well into their new homeland, growing increasing patriotic.

In 1935 when Lima was celebrating its 400th anniversary, the Lindley family decided to release a new drink that was decidedly Peruvian - they named it Inca Kola and based its flavor on a local herb Hierba Luisa, already enjoyed as an infusion. This new sugary and lightly carbonated Hierba Luisa based drink was quickly accepted. In fact, it quickly became a hit and consumption spread across most of Lima.

AgeingADon Isaac Lindley, head of the family, would manage his increasingly large bottling facility while son Johnny would drive the delivery truck from Callao to Barranco, delivering new stock to restaurants and local shops, as well as trying to secure deals with new customers.>
