#2 -The 3rd Annual Big Ten Bar Crawl is almost here and this year promises to be bigger and better than ever! The crawl starts at noon at DJs at the Garden (222 Friend St) and continues around the North Station area:
12-1:30 DJs at the Garden
1-2:30 Johnnie’s on the Side
2-3:30 The Harp
3-4:30 Hurricane O’Reilly’s
4-5:30+ The Greatest Bar
View a map of the route by clicking here
There will be souvenir koozies available (while supplies last) for $3 each at DJs!
There is a Bruins game at The Garden at 7:00pm, so we will be colliding with some fan traffic at Greatest Bar. If Greatest Bar does fill to capacity, there are plenty of establishments nearby to go to until the Bruins crowd thins out. We expect there to be a Big Ten crowd at Greatest Bar until very late in the night.
This came from Crawl in Boston
Powerball is coming to Massachusetts this weekend.
State treasurer Tim Cahill said sales will start on Sunday, January 31.
The first drawing will be on the first Wednesday. February 3.
"We're really excited. This is the first time we've been able to offer it here in Massachusetts. So now you don't have to go to Rhode Island, Connecticut or New Hampshire if you want to buy Powerball, especially of there's a big jackpot," Cahill told WBZ Radio Wednesday.
"It could bring as much as $50 million more to the state lottery," in a full year, he added.
There are also benefits to local merchants.
"If there are big jackpots, it generally brings people to the stores and they may spend not only money on other lottery products but money on other things that these small 'mom and pop' convenience stores (sell)."
Massachusetts is the last state in New England to join Powerball.
"We just didn't give up," Cahill said, noting there was a trade-off.
"We convinced the other states it was in there best interest to allow us to sell. We also will allow them to sell Mega Millions."
Call said the two games will only compete if there are two big jackpots, but they generally don't run in the same cycle.
"So if one is up, one is down and people generally buy when the jackpot is big so this means, we think, more big jackpots, which can only help the game overall."
The treasurer said lottery sales in the state are good so far.
"We're about even with last year," he said.
"I think this Powerball game will put us over last year's number at the end."
"Our goal is to bring in as much money as we can to cities and towns."

Lets see what I learned this weekend:
1. Kelly "Just the Tip" Armstrong is recently single and ready to mingle.
2. B's game Thursday, C's game Friday, B's game Saturday and then out Sunday to watch the NFL playoff games - makes my wallet puke on Monday Mornings.
3. Dorchester doorbell is no way to get picked up at midnight.
4. The stomach-butt-flu is not contagious.
5. I am contemplating switching to straight Budweiser, as my new beer of choice.
6. I have the worst phone ever. It shuts itself off for no reason and looks like this:
7. No matter how many times I drop it, kick it or turn it off and on the thing just doesn't come back until it wants to.
8. Hey Minny just remember Tails Never Fails.
9. Yes, I argued that the 10 minute conversation/argument I had about switching to Bud qualifies as an adult conversation.
10. DJ's charges a cover on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. If you are looking for young ladies, dressed to the nines, sipping on mixed drinks. Then thats the place to go.
11. Mike G thought this photo was funny enough to send around as one of his friends family reunion photos:
12. I think the 2 NFL playoff games yesterday were very exciting.
13. The Boston Bruins are in 9th place and in bigtime trouble.

WARM SRPINGS, Ga. — Police have arrested a Georgia woman who they say forced her son to kill his pet hamster with a hammer as punishment for earning a bad grade.
Meriwether County sheriff Steve Whitlock told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Thursday night that the 12-year-old boy told his teacher about the killing. The teacher reported it to the Division of Family and Child Services, who contacted police.
The pet's death allegedly took place at the family's Warm Springs home.
Whitlock said 38-year-old Lynn Middlebrooks Geter faces one charge each of animal cruelty, child cruelty and battery.
He said she was arrested last week and remained in the Meriwether County jail Thursday evening. It was not immediately known if she had a lawyer.
Meriwether County is located about 90 minutes southwest of Atlanta.
I bet this little 12 year old boy will start getting better grades now. If your mother makes you kill your pet hamster with a hammer, that bitch means business. What happens if he got sent to the principles office or detention? Would she break his hands with a hammer??

The Red Cross in the southern city of Augsburg says that 10 boys, aged 13 and 14, drank the sauce Wednesday morning, apparently in school.
The German news agency DAPD quoted the Red Cross as saying the boys complained of feeling sick, and eight were taken to a hospital. They were to be kept in overnight for observation.
The Red Cross said that on the Scoville scale, which measures the hotness of sauce, the sauce measured 535,000 — compared to 2,500 for normal Tabasco sauce.
These kids are all pussies. I mean I ate some of the Pasta from Hell that has the bhut jolokia (aka the ghost chilli, a chili pepper commonly recognized as the hottest in the world) in it:
In 2000, India's Defence Research Laboratory (DRL) reported a rating of 855,000 units on the Scoville scale, and in 2004 a rating of 1,041,427 units was made using HPLC analysis. For comparison, Tabasco red pepper sauce rates at 2,500-5,000, and pure capsaicin (the chemical responsible for the pungency of pepper plants) rates at 15,000,000–16,000,000 Scoville units.

Hard-drinking The Pogues star Shane MacGowan has turned to alcohol to make sure he always has a full head of hair - he regularly washes it in Guinness.
The Irish singer insists men losing their hair would be wise to follow the Irish custom of running Guinness through their follicles.
He says, "They sell all those lotions to cure you of baldness... They don't work. There is only one way to cure baldness - you pour Guinness over your head, collect it in a bucket, and drink it in the morning.
"It's proven to work."
And MacGowan refuses to wash his hair when he's not at home in Ireland: "I don't wash it - only in Tipperary water."
I am not going bald but I would try Shane MacGowan's method if I were. I love how he washes his hair in Guinness, collects it in a bucket, and drinks it in the morning. I mean waste not want not right?
High Support for Medical Marijuana
ABC News/Washington Post Poll: 81 Percent Support Legalizing Marijuana for Medical Use
Eight in 10 Americans support legalizing marijuana for medical use and nearly half favor decriminalizing the drug more generally, both far higher than a decade ago.
High Support for Medical Marijuana ABC News/Washington Post Poll: 81 Percent Support Legalizing Marijuana for Medical Use
With New Jersey this week poised to become the 14th state to legalize medical marijuana, 81 percent in this national ABC News/Washington Post poll support the idea, up from an already substantial 69 percent in 1997. Indeed the main complaint is with restrictions on access, as in the New Jersey law.
Fifty-six percent say that if it's allowed, doctors should be able to prescribe medical marijuana to anyone they think it can help. New Jersey's measure, which is more restrictive than most, limits prescriptions to people with severe illnesses. State health officials can add to the list.
DECRIMINALIZE? – Apart from medical marijuana, there have been recent efforts to decriminalize marijuana more broadly in some states. A preliminary vote on one such measure is to be held in the Washington state Legislature this week. In California organizers say they've collected enough signatures to hold a statewide referendum on the issue next fall. And a separate proposal in California to legalize and tax the drug cleared a legislative committee last week. A Field poll there in April found 56 percent support for the idea, which its backers say would raise $1.3 billion a year.
Nationally, this survey finds 46 percent support for legalizing small amounts of marijuana for personal use – the same as it was last spring, and well above its level in past years, for example 39 percent in 2002 and 22 percent in 1997.
GROUPS – Age is a factor. Just 23 percent of senior citizens favor legalizing marijuana for personal use; that jumps to 51 percent of adults under age 65. There are political and ideological differences as well: Thirty percent of conservatives and 32 percent of Republicans favor legalization, compared with 49 percent of independents, 53 percent of Democrats and more than half of moderates and liberals alike (53 and 63 percent, respectively).
Medical marijuana, for its part, receives majority support across the political and ideological spectrum, from 68 percent of conservatives and 72 percent of Republicans as well as 85 percent of Democrats and independents and about nine in 10 liberals and moderates. Support slips to 69 percent among seniors, vs. 83 percent among all adults under age 65.
There are similar divisions on whether medical marijuana should be restricted or made available to anyone a doctor thinks it would help. Overall, 56 percent, as noted, prefer no restrictions, while 21 percent say it should be limited to terminally ill patients and an additional 21 percent say it should be limited to those with serious but not necessarily terminal illnesses.
Liberals are 23 points more apt than conservatives, and Democrats 20 points more likely than Republicans, to oppose restrictions. There's also a difference between the sexes, with men 10 points more likely than women to say the doctor should decide.
But the main difference is whether people think marijuana should be permitted for medical uses in the first place. Among supporters, 63 percent would rely on the doctor's discretion. Among those who oppose medical marijuana, 75 percent say that if it is allowed, it should be limited to seriously or terminally ill patients.
New Jersey passed its medical marijuana law this month and outgoing Gov. Jon Corzine is expected to sign it tomorrow morning, his last day in office. Medical marijuana first became legal in California in 1996, followed by Alaska, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington state.
METHODOLOGY – This ABC News/Washington Post poll was conducted by telephone Jan. 12-15, 2010, among a random national sample of 1,083 adults, including landline and cell-phone-only respondents, with an oversample of African Americans (weighted to their correct share of the population) for a total of 153 black respondents. Results for the full sample have a 3.5-point error margin. Click here for a detailed description of sampling error. Sampling, data collection and tabulation by TNS of Horsham, PA. - ABC news
I am sure everyone and their mother has an opinion on marijuana, weed, chronic, skunk, bud, mary jane, sticky-icky, or whatever else you may call it. Here is mine - legalize it and tax it. It seems like it would solve 3 problems. The first being money, it would raise a shit ton of money of you could go into a store and buy a pack of joints for 20 bucks, most of it going to taxes. The second being taking some of the action that the drug dealers get from their weed business. Thirdly it would stop lots of the frivolous court expenditures due to prosecuting someone with a dime bag. Let me know what you think.

Onto what I learned this weekend:
1. The crowd for Mariah Carey down the casino was a mixture of young and old but people were not happy that she showed up at 9:20 for an 8:00 show.
2. Sometimes Mikey Layden's apprentice must use Mikeys brain at work and not his own.
3. There are 450 hot dogs eaten every second in the US.
4. Chuckie is looking to give away his bull dog mix which happens to be "Knee high and muscular very happy and energenic".
5. Nick Cannon was DJ-ing at Shrine and the line was out the door and then some.
6. Chrissy wears fancy shoes.
7. Yesterdays is hosting a poker tournament Sunday at noon.
8. Mikey Layden says he would grow a mullet but he is afraid he would have "homosexual hair". (I have no idea what that consists of).
9. One of my friends stashes his empty beer bottles in 4 different boxes so his wife doesn't know how many he has drank in one sitting(Brilliant).
10. Scott Brown's supporters seem much more down to earth than Martha Coakley's.
11. Craps is fun as hell to play but you can't win money playing it unless you have a ton of money on the table.
12. The Fours in Quincy is a good place to watch a game as long as you are sitting at the bar because standing around there sucks.
13. No matter how much you explain that the Pasta from Hell is THAT hot people still want to try it:

Chrissy ordered the Wings of Ass Destruction (7 Bombs) plus the Pasta from Hell (9 Bombs)(Please Take Us Seriously When We Say DO NOT Order This Dish). Welchie ordered up the Masala Rubbed & Spit Roasted ½ Chicken (3 Bombs). Smiddy ordered the Pampas Style Grilled 16 oz Sirloin with Cherio Chimichurri (5 Bombs). Jeffrey and I both ordered the Chipotle Braised Pork Shank with Salsa Fuego (4 Bombs).
I sampled everything but Welchie’s chicken. The best thing was the steak. It was so good that Jeffrey started chatting up the grill guy and scored us a free steak. The pork was alright but I wouldn’t order it again. Then there were the wings. At first you take a few bites, and think “After them hot deviled eggs this is pussy shit (at least that’s what I thought)”, THEN IT HITS YOU! Your lips get numb and then the burn starts. Needless to say I only had one wing. Lastly, Chrissy’s Pasta from Hell came out. I think calling it Pasta from Hell is being nice actually. It could be called “This Shit Will Burn Your Lips, Your Mouth, Your Soul, and Lastly Your Ass Hole” because that is exactly what it did. Chrissy took a first bite, then a quick second bite and everyone at the table started nodding that maybe it isn’t so hot. But when he took that third bite it was all over! The sweat started and the waters couldn’t come fast enough. After eating some of Jeffrey’s steak, I decided I had to try the Pasta from Hell. BAD IDEA… If you can imagine the hottest thing you have ever ate then multiply it by 100 then all of a sudden someone sticks a red hot poker in your mouth - that is probably half as hot as that pasta was.
The only thing that comes to mind when talking about this Pasta From Hell is this scene in Armageddon(instead of an asteroid its a plate of pasta):
Oscar: Ok, Mr. Truman, let's say that we actually do land on this. What's it gonna be like up there?
Truman: 200 degrees in the sunlight, minus 200 in the shade, canyons of razor-sharp rock, unpredictable gravitational conditions, unexpected eruptions, things like that.
Oscar: Okay, so the scariest environment imaginable. Thanks. That's all you gotta say, scariest environment imaginable
That little quote sums up my whole feeling on the Pasta From Hell.
