The guys have two segments they were able to hold on to for future podcast needs. You get to hear them this week!
So in this solo show, Jason explains the value of attending trade events at your local tobacconist. Then Jason and Tony (in an homage to pre-recorded drop-in segments) conclude our Beers of Europe tour in merry ol' England with the Samuel Smith's Taddy Porter. Finally, Jason demystifies some of the very basic mechanics of casino comps.
Jason and Tony embark upon the third of our four-beer Tour of Europe, this time stopping in Bavaria for a sample of the Weihenstephaner Original premium bavaricum. Then Tony offers a redux review of the Davidoff 2000 followed by Jason's satisfying encounter with the Rocky Patel Fifty Five. We then circle back with Tony's travel tips -- especially helpful if you're a n00b traveler.
Get through your early-summer "meh!" thorough us, as Jason and Tony are neither happy nor sad with the Dragon Lady doppelbock from Lithuania and the Raices cigar from Alec Bradley. We liven it up a bit, though, with a refresher about tipping at the casino and some etiquette points for joining a new-to-you table game.
In this episode, we begin a four-part tour of European beers by enjoying Switzerland's Holzfass. Tony shares his disappointment with the Gran Habano Connecticut No. 1 while Jason elucidates his better experience with the El Gueguense cigar--a Nicaraguan puro. Wrapping it up, Tony talks about the new-to-him slots from 360VV4 and explains the mechanics of winning a hand-pay jackpot at a slot machine.
Whilst sipping from a generous pour of Macallan Amber single-malt Scotch whisky, Tony regales Jason with his tales of big wins and big hangovers that accompanied his 40th birthday in Las Vegas amid the festivities of 360Vegas Vacation IV.
This week we drink two different Ron Diplomatico rums, we review the Gran Habano Connecticut and finally discuss a northern-IL casino!
This week we drink three different types of whiskey from the Journeyman Distillery collection, we smoke a Punch Bareknuckle & Por Larranaga cigar. Finally, we finish up reviewing a Supreme Court case of Lewis v. Clark which address Indian Tribal Immunity.
This week we drink St. George gin, smoke the Arturo Fuente & Asylum cigars and discuss the American Gaming Association
We drink Saki this week! That's a rarity for the VLO Boys. See if you agree with our assessments of three different types of Saki in the sampler pack, Tony bought. Next, Tony will discuss the Davidoff Art Series 2016 cigar, while Jason discusses the value of boutique, off-brand smokes. Finally, we pull the curtain back and share with you the 4-types of patrons in the casino!
Launch your weekly voyage into the manly vices with the La Lousiane cocktail. Sip it while Tony praises the Arturo Fuente Rosado Sun Grown cigar and Jason vilifies the Pinar del Rio Liga Cubana No. 5. Then learn about the proposed Nevada legislation to confirm the legalization of pari-mutuel betting for e-sports and whatnot. Finally: You'll be updated on the expansion of the Gun Lake Casino, the tribal casino closest to Jason's home in lovely Grand Rapids, Mich.
No outtakes in this show, because the show IS the outtake! We review the Chicago cocktail, Tony covers the A Turrent Six Generations Corona Gorda, Jason speaks to the Alec Bradley Fine and Rare Third Issue, then your generals of gaming discuss the slow evaporation of poker tables in Clark County.
In this exciting but somewhat stitched-together Frankenpodcast, Jason and Tony sip the Godmother cocktail while pontificating about the Rocky Patel Zen by Nish Patel and the Gurkha Cellar Reserve Hedonism cigars. Then your gurus of gambling review the sad case of Jan Flatto, whose friend pushed the button on a slot machine -- and then walked away with a $100k jackpot.
Happy Easter! When you've had your fill of chocolate, pivot to the tasty 1835 Texas bourbon graciously sent to us by listener Danny Z -- and pair it, perhaps, with a solid Don Diego Privada No. 2. After you've digested those reviews, you'll hear your gurus of gamblin' pontificate about a couple of Vegas-related things (the Raiders move, resort fees, 360Vegas Vacation IV). Can't miss!
In this shorter and slightly less focused episode, Jason and Tony begin with seven tips for managing flaming cocktails. Then Tony discusses the Laranja Reserva cigar, followed by Jason's review of the Inch by E.P. Carillo. Then your patriarchs of podcasting pontificate peerlessly about protections for psychological problems in the PPACA -- and how they might change for gamblers under Trumpcare.
