Drinks on me

Sort of.

Remember when I told you about this event?

WW

Walt and Bowery Collective are doing it again. Whiskey Washback, the next edition, will take place on Friday, October 24 at the Bowery Hotel.

(AKA my favorite place.)

If you like whiskey and bourbon (or you want to learn more about both), here’s your chance: Bowery Collective is bringing back Whiskey Washback on Friday 10/24 at Bowery Hotel.

And if you think the brown spirits are a bit scary (you shouldn’t–trust me), know that there will be cocktails available in addition to straight tastes.

This awesome event will sell out so if you’re interested, get tickets here ASAP.

To get 25% off your ticket, use promo code JEN. See you there!

Twitter Spotlight: Ty Bentli

Eventually, my goal is to include the whole crew from Sarah, Ty & Mel show in the Twitter Spotlight.

I was off to a great start with Sarah. Later, I featured Samy. And now, here’s your chance to get to know Ty.

Look out, Mel. Resistance is futile.

Twitter Spotlight: Carol Blymire

I am so impressed by entrepreneurs. The courage it must take to strike out on one’s own!

Carol Blymire is one of these brave souls. She has her own business.

But thanks to Twitter I also know that she was in a Rush cover band, practices Transcendental Meditation and has a super-cute dog, Dexter.

Twitter Spotlight: Captain Lee of Below Deck

First, let me get the bad news out of the way: Captain Lee is spoken for. As in married.

The enigmatic silver fox is pretty dreamy so I wasn’t all that surprised. Who doesn’t love the strong, silent type!

Anyway.

I became a fan of Bravo’s Below Deck at the gym. Marathons of Season 1 made my time on the treadmill and eliptical go by much faster. I wasn’t aware of yachtie culture and quickly got hooked on the ups and downs of crew members. Who’s flirting? Who’s fighting? And most importantly, how big was the tip?

Chartering the Ohana is out of reach for me (can you imagine how fun that would be?!), but I’m still hoping I get to meet Captain Lee for prime rib and Cabernet some day.

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@CaptHLR: She needs to be my best friend, and my wife is. She also needs to be a beautiful person, not the beauty that only your eyes can see. She needs to have the beauty that radiates from within. I’m fortunate that my wife is both.

Twitter Spotlight: Samy K

When I listened to the Kane Show on Hot 99.5 during the years I lived in DC, I never thought I would have the chance to feature The one-and-only Samy in the Twitter Spotlight.

But then I connected with Sarah Fraser and fell in friend-love with her while she lived in the NYC area. Sarah has since moved back to DC where she has returned to the radio via 107.3 FM’s Sarah, Ty and Mel Show. And guess who recently joined the fun? Yep, Samy.

“You’re in love with that cat!” my then-girlfriend Margot once accused me. To be fair, she was a very attractive cat.
