Micah’s 2018 New Year’s Resolutions

by: Micah Jacobs
December 27, 2017

Everyone thought 2016 was a dumpster fire until 2017 came along with the classic “hold my beer” move. 2018, can we catch a break? Or, at least our breath?

I looked back at my resolutions from last year I kept almost all of them. While I didn’t travel to Europe as I had planned I did go to more festivals and spent a lot more time strumming on the guitar. 2 out of 3 ain’t bad.

Stay Home

Yup. I need to stay home more. I have already started working on this resolution ever since my new cat, Allan, came into my life. I’m not going to stop going to shows (August Burns Red is this weekend and, we just scored tickets to Kesha and Macklemore in Hershey at Hersheypark Stadium July, 21st) but, I find myself longing for my sweatpants and couch more nowadays. My bank account will certainly thank me.

Give Back

Maybe it’s the holiday season that has me thinking about it, but I do not spend enough time helping charities and non-profits in Harrisburg. That is going to change. I recently signed myself up at the Central PA Food Bank to volunteer and look forward to working with other organizations through the year. During the warmer months, I like to volunteer with the state parks and do trail clean up. It’s a great way to get out in the woods and help preserve our lands.

Move

I recently renewed my lease on my midtown loft. I love the place and Harrisburg has been great to me, but I will not be renewing it again. Tying in with the above mentioned staying home more resolution in an effort to save some cash, it is because I plan on moving.

There are no definite plans and I guess you could say this is a goal more so than a resolution but next fall I will be on the West Coast (cue Sara cussing). There are a lot of opportunities in the Pacific Northwest for Environmental Health and Safety — that’s my day job — and I’m going to have to move out of Harrisburg to reach some of my long-term career goals.

2017, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

by: Jimi The Intern
December 22, 2017

Finding cocktail recipes that are both tasty and not too difficult to make can almost seem impossible.

Some recipes call for ingredients you can never find or require too much effort.

Who has time to muddle sugar cubes when you’re too busy shopping, wrapping gifts, and entertaining family members?

With that in mind, we picked out a few Holiday cocktail recipes that are delicious and relatively easy to mix up.

BONUS: Enjoy these while wrapping gifts and playing our Hallmark Christmas Movie Drinking Game.

Bulleit Hot Toddy

After a long day of shopping or shoveling in the cold, a Hot Toddy can be an ideal remedy to help you warm up and relax.

Recipe

Combine all ingredients in your favorite mug, stir, and enjoy.

Still shopping? Be sure to check out our gift guides for loads of ideas for anyone on your list.

Dam Good Cranberry

Cranberries are a wintertime delight. This sweet and tangy fruit is a staple on most Holiday tables and is great for a Holiday cocktail.

Recipe

Combine the vodka and cranberry juice and pour it over ice in a rocks glass. Top it off with fresh cranberries and a splash of ginger ale.

Peach Party Punch

This one requires a little more effort, but it makes a whole batch so you’re not constantly mixing up new drinks during your holiday party.

Santa-Clausmopolitan

Cosmos, anyone? Shake things up and serve up this Holiday twist on a classic cocktail.

  • 1/2 oz Russian Standard Vodka
  • 1/2 cup of cranberry juice
  • 1/2 cup of white cranberry-peach juice
  • 1 oz triple sec
  • Flaked coconut for martini glass rim

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well, and pour into a martini glass rimmed with coconut.

Cheers!
