With the announcement of his new Virginia Black Whiskey, Canadian rapper Drake serves as the latest Hip Hop artist to try their luck in the world of spirits. Details on this Lushworthy venture have gradually been revealed through Drake’s social media accounts and on the Virginia Black Whiskey website.
Most recently, Drizzy posted a promo video for the whiskey on Instagram. In a caption for the teaser, Drake revealed that the whiskey is “good for your soul.” That’s pretty much most whiskeys, sooo…yeah. Regardless, I’m quite intrigued by Drake’s boozy venture, which is described as “a personally selected collection of two, three and four-year old bourbons finished with a decadent profile.” Yummy.
A release date and a price point for Virginia Black Whiskey remain unknown, but I’m sure we’ll receive that info in the very near future.

When you’re wedged between two people on a cross-country flight, a free cocktail can be a godsend. But wait, how does one acquire this free drink? Well, there’s actually a number of ways to score a free drink on your next flight. Check out my personal tips for getting you hands on a free drink while flying the friendly skies. Cheers!
Hope For The Worst
This may seem a little backwards, but I’ve scored several drinks on flights because of ill circumstances. Both incidents were on Southwest flights. The first was because our flight was delayed by about an hour. And I’m pretty sure the second was a pity drink. A friend and I found ourselves seated in the second to last row on our flight. Trust me, you never want to find yourself in the second to last row. That’s where they seat toddlers accused of murder and other hooligans. Okay, not really, but it is pretty rough. You do highly increase your chances of a free, pity drink though.
Join A Rewards Program
While it may seem like eons before you can score a free flight through a rewards program, working your way up to a free drink or two isn’t nearly as hard. Rewards programs do differ depending on the airline, so be sure to ask your preferred airline about any boozy perks linked with their rewards program.
As the city of Atlanta continues to thrive as a top food and drink destination, the number of food and drink festivals hosted in the city are steadily increasing. I’m definitely not complaining. In fact, at this point I think I can officially add “attending food/drink festivals with the homies” to my list of hobbies. Right next to visiting MJQ bi-yearly and pigging out at Fellini’s.
With my newfound hobby and all, I felt compelled to create a list of my favorite, Atlanta food and drink festivals. Check ’em out below!
Atlanta Food & Wine Festival – Although the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival (AFWF) is only in its sixth year, it’s fast becoming the G.O.A.T. of Atlanta food and drink festivals. The tasting tents alone have proven to be the it place to see and be seen (and to grub out like there’s no tomorrow). There’s also plenty of knowledge dropped during one of the many seminars and workshops that take place during AFWF.
Atlanta Taco Festival – Trust me, I know that attending a food festival for the first year can be a little scary. There’s about a bazillion things that could go wrong. But I’ve got a really good feeling about the inaugural Atlanta Taco Festival. I mean, we’re talking about tacos here, people! TAHHH-KOESSS. Oh, and if you purchase a VIP pass, there’s also The Lunazul Tequila Experience. A win, win, for sure.
If you’re like me, you’ve probably pranced around your house singing “Peeno noir, smoke a cigar, revenge can be spectacular,” on numerous occasions following an “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” binge-watch. Well, I came across some really cool news via Instagram today. Tituss Burgess, the actor who crafted that amazing song and plays Titus Andromedon on “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” is releasing his own wine! The wine is fabulously titled Pinot By Tituss, and is currently available for pre-order (shipment for bottles will begin on March 14).
“To be enjoyed by all the fabulous Kings and Kweens. Pinot makes things fun. xo Tituss #PinotMakesThingsFun #PinotByTituss @PinotByTituss www.pinotbytituss.com,” Tituss wrote in the caption to an Instagram post promoting Pinot By Tituss.
I knew watching DJ Khaled on Snapchat at five in the morning would eventually pay off one day. In a recent Snap from DJ Khaled, which featured French Montana, the rapper revealed that Ciroc French Vanilla will be the newest flavor from the vodka brand.
“Look out for the new French Vanilla Ciroc,” French Montana says in the Snap.
I haven’t heard any news of Ciroc French Vanilla, so this is either super exclusive info or French is pulling our strings. Given that the rapper is a Ciroc Boy, it does seem somewhat believable. At the same time, his name is French Montana, so his comment could be a play on that.
Other flavors from Ciroc currently include Pineapple, Apple, Amaretto, Red Berry, Peach, and Coconut. If the news is true, how do you feel about French Vanilla as the newest Ciroc flavor?
While a number of people plan on smooching it up with their boos this Valentine’s Day, fans of “The Walking Dead” will spend their V-Day in walker bliss thanks to the mid-season premiere of “The Walking Dead.” I’m sure the premiere will already be amazing, but if you really want to take things to the next level, check out my “The Walking Dead” drinking game. This particular drinking game involves various shots and sips, as well as one shot/sip combo (let’s hope we don’t have to drink to a character death).
If you plan on partaking in my “The Walking Dead” drinking game, be sure to drink responsibly. Cheers!
