Let us begin, what, where, why, or whenwill all be explained like instructions to a gameSee I'm not insane, in fact, I'm kind of rationalwhen I be asking you, Who is more dramatical?...
THE SUMMER OF 2006
So it has come to this, some BS blog like everyone else and their mother, dog, postman, and local liquor store clerk. Yes, the Man of the People has started his own ish. But I had to get it twisted just a bit; no "this is what I did today: got up, walked my dog, read this interesting/funny story (with link), ate at this crappy place, blah, blah, blah."
There had to be a challenge. What better challenge than a big passion of mine, the sweet nectar of hops and barley, the Golden frothiness, the Jamba Juice of the Mesopotamian G-O-Ds, yes, beer. How many could I suck down in a summer
? One per week? A sixer, a twelver? I decided, with my liver's objections, to try for 528 beers this summer
. Why that random number? We rest here in the Denver Metro, 5280 feet above all the seaside suckas. Sorry I cant really see me swilling that
many, so I dumped the zero and got with this hero: 528
Break it down: 14 weeks from Memorial Day through Labor Day
. That's about 38 beers per week
. Now, your local Barney at the pub may do that in his sleep. However, the kid here enjoys his pops, but he's usually a imbiber weekend style. A nice dose Friday through Sunday while kicking it at the game, the BBQ, the party, the local bar, the visit to the vet. Surely this quest will have the kid up his ante to a few more here and there.
I set a few simple ground rules for myself. A beer is a beer, whether it is a 2 liter jug or a thimble full. That's not to say I'll sit at the crib, pouring myself a "little in my hand" and get it up to 1000. Nah, that's not my style, I'm too sophisticated
as UTFO onced pined. If a homeboy/bartender/random drunk cat gives me a pint, a mega-mug, or a taster, that's one beer. The beers I down at the hizzy must be in a prepackaged container, I cant break up a standard can of beer into two beers. That being said, I can almost guarantee the reader 90% of my beers will be of the 12 ounce can variety or typical pub pint variety.That being set out, the site is going to need some Barry Bonds type muscle. Some other ish to fill the pages. That's easy for Commish CH, just add his other passions:
- Colorado Sports- Buffaloes, Nuggets, Broncos, Rockies, Avalanche, local players, and whatever else comes down the way Colroado-based.
- Hip Hop- anything related to the culure of hip hop. Remember the elements of the culture: MCing, DJing, B-boying, and grafitti. Heavy here on the MCing; we'll take a look back, a look at the present state, and a look to the future of the art form.
- More Beers and Slushy Gutter- Wack stories and the like related to beers and the some of the Kid's crew. FYI: The Slushy Gutter has been awarded yearly to the drunkest member of a loose collection of drunkards, derelicts, porn-fiends, family men, hard chargers, and sketchy associates the Kid associates with. All Slushy Gutter winners will be noted anytime they appear on the site.
The one stipulation is that any post must be related to one of the above three pillars of the Slushy Gutter Summer.
I encourage all to add their comments, beefs, suggestions, and general bullshitty to any post. Click the Slushy Gutter Summer banner or 'Home' prompts to get back to the home page. Aiiight?
Nuff Respect Due...
