A beer made with GRITS?

Posted by lukelorick on July 16, 2018 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (4)

I was born and raised in SC and although I now live in Texas my South Carolina roots run deep. Grits is an iconic southern breakfast that people in the south enjoy on a regular basis. 

From eating them by adding butter, or going all out and putting cheese and shrimp in the grits there are many ways this southern staple can be prepared to please just about anyone. 

I thought I had tried beer in just about every fo...

Biggest Pizza Ever?

Posted by lukelorick on March 20, 2018 at 10:45 PM Comments comments (1)

I went out to Deep Ellum in Dallas Texas for St. Patty's Day 2018. Having a great time can cause you to work up a BIG appetite. I was lucky since we saw a sign for SERIOUS PIZZA. We ducked in to order a pizza for the 6 of us and learned it was a 90 minute wait time. Normally I would be shocked and appalled, but given my current mood and the ability to go to a local bar to kill time, it was all good. 

After downing a few beers, while waiting, we ...

TV in Bathroom Mirror

I love sports and love watching the whenever I can. Going to the restroom is necessary for many reason, but I've never had a TV in the bathroom. I recently was in Dallas TX at the Omni and saw that the mirror in the bathroom was a little different. Turns out it had a fog proof tv built in!

Now I can watch TV while in the bathroom. What a time to be alive. 

Check out the full video of it on my

CraftXbeer review

Posted by lukelorick on December 23, 2017 at 6:45 PM Comments comments (22)

I get tons of different boxes delivered to my door, but there is something pretty cool about getting BEER delivered. CraftXbeer is a delivery service for BEER. They partner with two unique breweries each month and send the beer to your door. As I've gotten older I enjoy experiencing more than just the 'lite' beers that used to be my go to's. That is what makes this service great, they find the unique beers and send them to you to try.

Chaheati Heated Chair Review

Posted by lukelorick on December 17, 2017 at 2:05 PM Comments comments (4)

Let's face it, most people tailgate in the fall. College football and NFL football bring the tailgaters out and the cooler temperatures feel great, but as we get into winter people aren't as excited to go out and be in the cold, because they are human! Humans don't like to be cold. I understand and appreciate that and at the same time I want everyone to tailgate year round. The world is a better place if people are tailgating and having fun. So aside from putting on another lay...

Mingle Easy Plates Review

When you're out tailgating it's all hands on deck. You need your hands to have fun and enjoy the tailgate, not fumble around with your food and drinks. That's why the Mingle Easy plate was invented.


The Mingle Easy tailgating plates help hold your food and drink all in ONE hand. That is correct: your food and your drink in just one hand. This leaves your other hand open to throw cornhole, play beer pong, high five your buddies or ...
