Eat, Drink, and Listen

Just another WordPress.com weblog

Welcome to Eat, Drink, and Listen

Hello. Welcome to the launch of Eat, Drink, and Listen. This is a website about food, beer, wine, and spirits, and good music. 

I live in Wisconsin so a lot of the restaurant and beer reviews may be Wisconsin-centric, but that will only be a small part of this site.  I will post recipes (both mine and links to others).  I will try to do a weekly Brew Review where I review some type of a beer.  I will post comments and news on the Wisconsin Dining scene as well as on national things of interest. When I hear or read something really interesting or good elsewhere on the web, I will post a link.   I will rant about the Food Network from time to time as well, but only because it is a requirement that all food bloggers post at least one article ripping a Food Network personality once a year. I don’t know shit about wine, but I enjoy it so I may write about good wines I taste as well, just don’t expect much insight beyond “this shit is pretty fucking good for 5 dollars!” Oh yeah, and if you are offended by swear words and the occasional mention of disgusting acts like the dirty Sanchez (can you fucking believe some girl not only fucked Screech on video but them let him giver her a dirty Sanchez?  What would Mr. Belding think about this?) then this site is not for you.

As for music, my tastes lean towards independent rock, punk, early 90s alternative and Britpop, and good hip-hop.  I hope to do record reviews, concert reviews, lists, and other interesting stuff.  One of the things I hope to accomplish is to go through my old and very large 7” vinyl collection and revisit some of the best punk from the 90s.  I tend to get nostalgic when talking about music, reminiscing about the good old days like I was some washed up jock talking about his glory days on the High School football team like Uncle Rico in Napoleon Dynamite.  Oh I also think that the Rolling Stones are overrated and I cannot stand their “music”…ok I think they fucking suck. Now that that is out in the open we can move along.

Anyhow watch for some posts to appear shortly, including an account to the new Whole Foods on the East Side of Milwaukee.

Thanks for reading

  1. Just want to thank you for keeping at this and say how much I appreciate your clear and comprehensive comments. I missed the Richmond connection in the original Nation article. Really do hope and expect that someday soon we’ll be reading your work, or something comperable, in the RTD. In the meantime, I’m glad we can read it here.
