World Cup Soccer……

Spain Wins the World Cup!!!!!!!!! The World Cup is over and Spain sits on top of the world, literally. They have even surpassed Brazil as the number one team on the planet, doing so before the final game even started. Congratulations go out to the soccer team from Spain, they definitely were the better team in defeating the Netherlands, 1-0 in extra time.  I must say, being one of the pre-tournament favorites and the reigning European Champions, it was surprising to see how slowly they started this World Cup Tournament. While Germany and the Netherlands came out flying, ranking 1 and...

Eclipse!

Eclipse, Vampires, Twilight Theme Party AND a Drink Guy Signature Cocktail! Eclipse! Vampires, werewolves, romance and adventure! The Drink Guy team is counting down! Well, Lynn is counting down. Glenn is creating a signature cocktail for the occasion, likely so he can get through it all and not smack her. Hey! Lynn here!! Twilight rocks!! OK, yes, I am a fan...OK, I am addicted. And your point is? Just because I spent an hour using four different programs to create...this!! How cool is that!?!? Yah, OK, if any of you know of a Twilight Addiction Support Group, send me the...

Vancouver Breweries!

Vancouver, Breweries, and Beer! Vancouver Breweries...yes, despite the fact that I (Lynn) am not a beer drinker, reading about the specialty microbreweries in Western Canada and the process used, even my interest was peaked! (Especially when I found out there is such a thing as Chocolate Beer!) Of course, 5 days in Vancouver was not nearly enough, and packing in sight-seeing, wineries and time enjoying the Drink Guy's wonderful family out there, left us choosing one brewery to tour, for this trip anyway! Our choice was Granville Island Brewing , a local establishment that advertises...

A Life Coach Question, Living With Traditional Values, Good Or Bad?

Dear Life Coach Lynn, I want to know what you and your fans think about a woman taking care of her man. I believe I look after mine, cooking and cleaning, physical and emotional, as best I can. However, I am often "attacked" by others for my old fashioned attitude and living in the 1950's. What's wrong with looking after your man? I need a life coach! :-) Just call me June Cleaver ! Dear "June" , Thank you for your question! I'm sure our wonderful fans will have some thoughts, and of course I am happy to share mine with you! First of all, in my opinion, if you and your...

FIFA WORLD CUP……

The World Cup, Everyone is Watching The World Cup of Soccer, or as we real people like to call it "FOOTBALL," is once again upon us. This month long sporting event, played every four years, is easily the most watched, most exciting and biggest sporting event to be displayed on the world stage. The world cup is an event unlike any other sporting event. Football, or soccer is the most popular sport on the planet. What I mean by this is simple; whereas baseball is America's pastime, it's not too popular the world over. There are other worldwide event's for any number of sports, but...

Monday Again… Laff it Up Fuzz Ball

I Know The Feeling A guy was sitting at a table in his favorite restaurant one evening when he spotted a beautiful woman across the room eating by herself. He called the waiter over and asked for their most expensive bottle of wine to be sent over to the woman. The waiter delivered the wine saying it was from the gentleman over there. She looked at it and sent a note saying, "For me to accept this, you need to have a Mercedes in your garage, $ 1 Million in the bank and seven inches in your pants." After reading the note, the man replied with his own note, saying, "As it happens, I have...

Confused But Willing to Learn

Dear Life Coach Lynn In my relationship I am having trouble dealing with my girlfriend when she is stressed. Our relationship is great, and we really enjoy each other when things are good, but I know that if we can't work through it when things are tough than we will have difficulty in the long haul. I see couples here and there that have a great relationship no matter what they are going through, and I want that kind of life with someone, a wife who is a best friend too. If she has stress at work, or stress with her family, or just hormones (I know, as a guy I'm supposed to ignore...

Road Trip…Vancouver’s Way

A Road Trip In Style A Road Trip involves hopping in a car and heading in any direction that tickles your fancy. Well we did one better, hopped in a plane, headed to Vancouver, and then got in a killer Volvo C70 convertible for our road trip. The sites we saw, the things we did, and of course, the alcohol we drank. Wouldn't be a Drink Guy road trip without booze. The first night involved a juicy steak dinner, cooked to perfection by our host for the weekend, Miss Velvet Steele. This was accompanied by a nice Shiraz, recommended by one of our fans, but only able to purchase in Vancouver....

Suicide And Protecting Our Kids

Dear Life Coach Lynn, Suicide, and this article on it, was in the news recently, and has raised a lot of conversations in our social group of parents. What do you think? "An 8 year-old-boy in Texas tried to commit suicide after his teacher did nothing about the bad bullying he faced every day. The school’s response: have him sign a ‘no suicide’ agreement. Apparently this is standard procedure in this particular school district. Any student who tries to harm him/herself has to sign it. This kid, however, is in second-grade and is dyslexic. Would you ask your child to sign a...

What A Lady Drinks….And More?

A Lady Drinks What? A lady drinks, generally, something a little more sophisticated or classy, compared to what a guy drinks. It's more about style when it comes to what ladies drink. With wine being the drink of choice here, red or white. There is no favoritism when it comes to wine. All a matter of preference. And unless they know you well, a lady drinks white wine as it doesn't stain the teeth or ruin your cloths if it happens to spill. A ladies drink also tends to be a little more colorful and flavorful. Cocktails and martinis are a close second to the wine. Having more alcohol...

Vancouver Nightlife!

Vancouver Nightlife, Hitting the Town! Vancouver! One of Canada's premier cities, filled with culture, beauty and fun! And apparently, nightlife! According to popular opinion, Vancouver ranks third, after Toronto and Montreal, in the top Canadian cities for the club scene. Now, I know for some people around the world, the phrase "Canadian Club Scene" seems almost an oxymoron. Yet, contrary to the sometimes frozen hick image the world has, Canadians know how to have a great time, and enjoy some of the most amazing nightlife outside of Las Vegas and Miami! Sporting a culturally...

Mother’s Day Celebrations Around the World

Mother's Day celebrations can trace roots all the way back to the ancient Greeks and ancient Romans, and although the majority of countries celebrate this holiday on the second Sunday in May, there are celebrations for Mom's from early February until early December...I guess Mom's don't like January! The ancient Greeks celebrated Cybele, AKA "Earth Mother", whose priestesses apparently led her people to celebrate with wild music, drumming, dancing, and drinking...sounds a little more exciting than our North American celebrations! In Africa there are apparently many festivals and events...

Girls Night Out!

Girls Night Out! Heading out for drinks or dinner, Girls Night Out is a phrase that can strike fear into the hearts of men and smiles on the faces of women! Of course, this phrase can mean many things to many people. A girls night out can be as innocuous as a book club meeting at a girlfriends place, or as crazy as a bachelorette party at a wild club. Speaking only for myself, they tend to lean much more to the first event than the second. Regardless of the event, if I am heading out with one or more girlfriends for some time together, I have a smile on my face! The venue...

What a Guy Drinks…..

Guy Drinks A guy drinks what ever he feels like. Beer, shots, martinis, wine, pretty much whatever mood hits him. Let's be honest about this, most of us guys aren't overly "cultured" when it comes to a drink passing our lips. I generally only see a handful of men order wine with a meal and most times it's the wrong wine with their meal of choice. I personally hate red wine, so whether it's steak, chicken or  seafood, I'm having a glass of white if I really want wine. If going out to the pub a guy drinks an assortment of beer, usually in pitchers, and depending on how many guests are...

Monday Funnies for the Ladies

The other night, Sandra was invited out for a night with the girls. She told her husband that she would be home by midnight. Well, the hours passed and the margaritas went down way too easily. Around 3 am, a bit loaded she headed for home. Just as she got in the door, the cuckoo clock in the hallway started up and cuckooed three times. Quickly realizing her husband would probably wake up she cuckooed another nine times. She was really proud of herself for coming up with such a quick-witted solution in order to escape a possible conflict with him. Even though totally smashed she...

Vancouver Wineries, A Drink Guy Road Trip!

Vancouver! Wineries and more, it is a city known around the world, especially following the Olympic Winter Games of 2010 held there this year. Vancouver has much to offer, an unusual  climate within Canada, arts and culture, renowned nightlife, and wineries! Having never ventured to Western Canada myself, I have found myself surfing the net checking out all the cool and interesting things to do there, the fun stuff to share with all the fans! I do enjoy fun and interesting trivia, and there is all kinds of it surrounding Vancouver...did you know that on Jan. 1, 1922, at 2 a.m....

Alcohol, Abstaining and Other Attitudes!

Alcohol, Abstaining and Other Attitudes! Internet Fact or Fiction is back, this time talking about attitudes about abstaining and health. In our first two segments, "Alcohol Fact or Fiction on the Internet; Is the Truth Really Out There?" and "More "Alcohol, Fact, Fiction or Fun" we established that not everything we find online is easily identified as fact or fiction. At times, the fun of the information is enough to give it value. On this topic however, I am more interested in what is fact and what is fiction. That doesn't make it an easier to find the truth though! So...

More “Alcohol, Fact, Fiction or Fun” For You!

Alcohol Fact or Fiction? Well, we have established in "Alcohol Fact or Fiction on the Internet; Is the Truth Really Out There?" that wading through the information online can present a challenge when seeking the truth. We have also established that, sometimes, it just doesn't matter! In my time online I am consistently coming across fun and interesting trivia, and wanting to share it with the awesome Drink Guy fans. If I cannot verify it, does it make it any less interesting to read, or too talk about over coffee, at the water cooler, or maybe at the bar over an after work beer or...
