Book Review: My Drunk Kitchen by Hannah Hart

Though I admit to not being all that well-versed in “My Drunk Kitchen” the video series, I still wanted to see how Hannah Hart’s humor translated into book form. I might have aged out of some of this life advice, but her enthusiasm and love of puns still won me over.

News in Asia is Imbibing in Spirits

Given that this space reports on news that is not so pleasant, I figured this week, in honor of how much my fellow unicorns love to drink, I’d give a brief primer on the liquors, spirits, wine and beer from a few Asian countries.
