Drink That Milk or Go To Jail? It's Not You, It's Utah Corey O'Brien |

Drink That Milk or Go To Jail? It's Not You, It's Utah

Someone at Newscastic's Utah feed had some free time on their hands today. That or they made some stuff up, but after the story yesterday about the Utah's alcohol police possibly yanking the beer out of Oktoberfest, I am willing to believe these anything, even the laws on this list, which are supposedly on Utah's books.

If you ask me peeing on a toilet seat or not flushing in a workplace bathroom should get you a hefty fine. Perhaps a law punishing food establishments that put cheese on your food when you asked for no cheese, twice. I could support that legislation.

Check you the 19 laws such as "not fishing on horseback" and how much you can get fined for throwing snowballs in Provo by clicking here.

Bill Murray Crashes Bachelor Party Corey O'Brien |

Bill Murray Crashes Bachelor Party

Strippers, alcohol, loose morals, golf!?! Well, some bachelor parties are different than others. Especailly, when Bill Murray comes along with some advice for the groom and guests.  This happened at a Bachelor party in Charlotte over the weekend.  According to Deadspin:

"Over Memorial Day weekend, 20 of my buddies from Boston College got together in Charleston for our friend EJ's bachelor party. At one point during dinner at a steakhouse, one guy goes to the bathroom downstairs and sees Bill Murray sitting with some people with a fishing vest on. We talked to the waiter to see if we could send him some drinks, to which Bill declined. One of my buddies then went down and asked if he'd come up and say a few words for EJ and got a "No thanks." My buddy comes back up dejected and tells us it's not going to happen. Two minutes later, Bill fucking Murray walks into the room and gives this speech."

Some people have all the luck.  Watch the video here.

Ok-Sober-Fest?!? Corey O'Brien |

Ok-Sober-Fest?!?

The 90 and 100 degree Summer days start to end as you look to the lovely mountains. The Alpenhorn echoes down the canyon and you can nearly hear it. Maybe it’s just in your heart. It’s probably because you know it’s time for some bratwurst, Perogies and your choice of chilled brew in a tall stein while taking in the visions of majesty Snowbird has to offer. Well don’t let the sound of that giant needles scratching a record pull you away from your Fall-time fantasy…or do.

If the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control or UDABC follows through on its new policy, it will be a dry Oktoberfest. At that point I am not even sure what you'd call it. You can ask, “Do you really need beer to have an Oktoberfest?” Well, you don’t have to drink it, but it flies in the face of anything called Oktoberfest. Are we now going to let them water down a tradition that has been going on at Snowbird for decades become as watered down as the suds flowing out of those keg trailers? I, for one, hope not. 

According The Salt Lake Tribune's article, “the state liquor commission is getting tough about granting single-event permits to business.” A slippery slope this could be indeed for those who enjoy their social lubrication at some of the state’s events throughout the, well, event season. Could this mean no libation for events such as Pride, The Utah Arts Festival or The Living Traditions festivals? Could this attitude leak over to events like The Big Ass Show or Summer Jam? Twilight?

According the to Trib’s article, the state uses a two-tired test to determine who gets these single-event passes: One, one-time or unique event that lasts only a few days and used by a civic or community group to promote a good cause. Basically, they are talking about non-profits. Perhaps a celebration of a German tradition doesn’t serve the common good in the eyes of the DABC. It’s always made me feel pretty good. Will the people raise their voices or just empty steins?

Todd's Demolition Derby Report

I freaking love a good demolition derby. I've been a fan since I was a little kid...and apparently, I haven't grown up yet. So when I had the chance to go into the pits at Stirrin' Dirt Racing's May Mania and interview some of the drivers, it was like I was meeting rock stars. As it turns out, the drivers I spoke with, Dalton Gullo and Butch Johnson, won the main event. Check out the video and enjoy the crashing cars. And remember to click it or ticket!

Who Could Possibly Hate Sofia Vergara? Corey O'Brien |

Who Could Possibly Hate Sofia Vergara?

I can see hating Chevy Chase or Anne Coulter, but Sofia Vergara?  She is so cute!  Her accent.  Her smile. Her...assests.  Not to go full-on objectifying her, but my eyes have done seen the promised land! She is a globally powerful and sexy woman who genuinely seems happy and comfortable in her success.  In that regard she's like Bryan Cranston or Dave Grohl.  Those two.  Have you ever seen two happier people? These are people who have internalized they station in life and seem to truly appreciate where they have made it to. Most of us, myself included, could win $250,000 and complain that it wasn't a million.

So, here we are.  Chapter 7 of Jimmy Kimmel's "Celebrities Read Mean Tweets."  Some people have such random hate in their hearts.  Don Cheadle?  He's Iron Man's sidekick.  How they hell can you hate him? 

I will say, I had to watch the Andy Garcia one about 8 times.  I've never said "f*ck Andy Garcia" ever.  Not once or 100 times, but I remember "The Godfather 3" and we are all entitled to probably say it at least twice after those credits roll. If you made it that far.  Then again, Mr. Garcia is another seemingly happy guy.

America hates happy people. 

People just hate.
