JUNE 1: Skate Sensation Landon Swan

  Our guest on June 1st will be “The Skateboard Kid” Landon Swan. He’s not really called that, but we are trying to start something, you know? He’s what you call a “sensation” – he’s only 12 years old (in the 6th grade) yet he’s already lighting up the leader boards. Born and raised in […]

Hurricane Grill & Wings (Longwood): Burgers

When the gang wants to unwind with a few hand-crafted beers, watch some sports on TV and chow down on some of the best wings this side of the Mississippi, we make tracks to Hurricane Grill & Wings in Longwood. Chris dreams of that big plate of steaming wings soaked in the sauce du jour. […]

Between A Rock And A Hard Place

And now for the Picture Of The Week … This intense sport is known as rock crawling. Using heavily modified trucks to climb nearly impossible inclines and traverse tight canyons and river beds, these guys (and girls) push the limits of man and machine. It’s really an amazing shot. It was taken by retired amateur […]

Terrorists & Tea Parties

This week was an unusually boring week in the life of this crazy white boy, so this blog will be short and sweet … I watched a movie this week on Netflix streaming, a Kevin Smith film called Red State. It features John Goodman and a few other known actors. The movie was inspired by […]

Jason’s Deli SODO – Garden Fresh Salad Bar
