Type: Beer

So before I tell you how I feel about the beer, let us see what the bottle has to say about itself…

“La Cerveza de Barcelona: Since 1876 when August Kuentzmann Damm arrived from Alsace, Estrella Damm has been brewed as a premium quality beer in Barcelona. Estrella means star in Spanish and its name suggests the brand has become a star to the people of Barcelona. It has evolved with the city reflecting its character – sophisticated and passionate yet at the same time relaxed and welcoming. Estrella Damm is THE BEER OF BARCELONA”



The Great American Rite of Passage

In some parts of the world what marks you as an adult is some long standing tradition driven ritual, in the USA where cultural ties don’t go far beyond French fries or pizza we only have one rite of passage. When you turn 18 you can buy a lotto ticket, a pack of smokes and go to a strip club, while all those things are great you are probably still in high school or just recently graduated and still not treated with all the adult privileges. That’s right, you still have one more bigger better birthday down the road that will make you into a real adult – your 21st.

It’s a wine I know, kind of threw you off with this one. What you don’t think a monkey can have a refined taste to enjoy and critique wine? Typical human, now I really know how that cave man guy feels on those GEICO commercials.



Valentine’s Day Music Playlist

Greeting to all of you Valentine’s Day love birds. I decided to share some musical delight off of a playlist I’ve created especially for you. I’ve highlighted artists like R. Kelly, Isley borthers, LSG, Tyrese, 112, Beyonce and Alicia Keys all of which provide a great list of, how do you say, umm “Slow Jams” yeah that gave you a little smirk I know it did.

Unfortunately due to the fact that wordpress doesn’t allow you to embed anything into your post you will have to go to my There is however one song that I was regrettably unable to add Isley Brothers – Move Your Body. This is a classic but I couldn’t find a URL to add it to my Valentines Playlist.

If you already have your own account be sure to add me as a friend.
