I'm ending the discussion about Starbucks. Though I still feel they're bamboozling people, I concede that Starbucks sells more than just coffee and that it's a debate that needs to be reframed.

This past Saturday I had the opportunity to taste homemade oak-infused and partially distilled mead (that's me on the left) at the Upstate Brewtopians Annual Oyster Roast. I also enjoyed several other quality home brews as well as bashfully shared a few of my own with the seasoned brewing veterans there. Oh and Meg and I won a Party Pig! Thanks to Vladmir for documenting the whole event.

Coudal links to a Flickr set of ill-advised business names, but I loved several, including but not limited to:

  • Capitan Santa
  • Stuff Mart
  • Guns & Ammo Barbque
  • Just Another Saloon

Remember that kid who had a furry mustache in the 6th grade? Well, our friends at NCOVER just put that kid to shame.
