The ho-ho-ho is strong with us this week as we enjoy a tasty Ch-RITA-mas Tree cocktail as a lead-in to talking about glass decanters for your alcohol. Jason enjoys the Kristoff 685 Woodlawn and Tony smokes the La Palina Classic Rosado. Finally, we reflect on investing in casino real-estate investment trusts.
In this well-lubricated episode, Jason and Tony imbibe two Cynar-based cocktails (the “Patreon Love,” so named because Tony forgot the name of it, and the “Cynar Flip”) and share their experiences with the Kristoff Brittania and the Opus X Lost City cigars. Then we begin a two-part gaming segment focused on the ways the casinos fight money laundering. Can’t miss!
We launch the show with a reminder to catch E-351 for some admin notes, if you missed them, then we dive into a review of Ancient Uncle Joe’s artisinal aged mead, a gift from Jason’s friend Eva. Then Tony elucidates his enjoyment of the Kristoff Connecticut cigar, followed by Jason’s declamations of demi-demerit for the Rocky Patel Special Edition. Kyle from Ontario calls with an intriguing idea. Oh, and we finish with sharing the American Gaming Association’s year-in-review email blast.
Tony’s back from Atlantic City! In this show, we start with a listener call and a listener email, then we sip Dow’s ruby and tawny ports.
