Blitzed Smashed and Drunk: Building Cocktails and...Originally, I wasn’t planning to write about the art of breaking down a cocktail this week, but after hearing from @'ArcherVice', I thought this might serve as a good jumping off point to a much larger topic – food and beverage pairings. Pairing food and beverages is a big deal, be it when dating,... 9 months 1 week
Blitzed Smashed and Drunk: Simple Steps to Make...There is nothing better than a well-made drink. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a perfectly steeped green tea, a glass of fresh homemade iced tea or a perfectly constructed cocktail, a well-made drink always tastes better. At the bar, it is very easy to get a well-made drink; at home, that may not... 9 months 1 week
Blitzed Smashed and Drunk: The Great American...There is something to be said about The Great American Lager. The King of Beers, except for a brief marketing ploy at the turn of the millennium, has been the title held by AB/Inbev’s own flagship beer, Budweiser since the 80s. I’m not necessarily one to disagree with the moniker for marketing... 9 months 2 weeks
Blitzed, Smashed and Drunk: The Last WordI thought it would be a cold day in hell before I wrote signing praise about something from Detroit. While the city may be a mess and rife with crime, the public pension totally shot, and home to sports baseball and football teams who haven’t hoisted a championship in over 50 years, it is home to a... 9 months 4 weeks
Blitzed Smashed and Drunk: A Guide to My Favorite...Now that the fall is “officially” here since Labor Day has passed us by, and much to my disdain of Season Creep, fall beers have officially been stocked in so many beer stores around the US. In honor of the fall drinking season, I wanted to discuss my favorite beers of the fall. Just to be up front... 10 months 3 days
Blitzed Smashed and Drunk: Cocktails to End the...Labor Day marks the end of the “Summer Season”. No more white after Labor Day. The Seersucker Suit gets put back in the closet. We may still have an Indian summer to prolong the warmth and feel of the summer before slowly easing us into the fall. The start of the NFL Season is right around the... 10 months 1 week
Blitzed Smashed and Drunk: Season Creep, Pumpkin...Over the last few days, I’ve noticed something in my local beer store. Maybe you guys have noticed it too. Pumpkin Beers are slowly appearing on the shelves. Pumpkin beers mean the season is changing. Except when I look out the window, read the thermometer in my car or even look at the calendar, I... 10 months 3 weeks
Blitzed, Smashed and Drunk: A Guide to...I’ve never been a big fan of ridiculous cocktail menus. Actually, that’s not quite true – I happen to love a ridiculously huge menu because I find them thoroughly enjoyable to peruse and really figure out what I want but I don’t like it when I’m out with a group of friends. While I tend to be that... 10 months 4 weeks
Blitzed, Smashed and Drunk: Skittlebrau and the...Flavor is everywhere. From high end dining to even a cheap bottle of Mad Dog, everything has that taste which we mentally attach to something. Everything begins with a blank slate and a clean canvas. When it comes to alcohol, there is only blank canvas. Beer and wine both have strong flavor... 11 months 5 days
Blitzed, Smashed and Drunk: A Beginners guide to...Making Alcohol can definitely be a labor of love. It is definitely labor intensive. It’s a time consuming process. It can be financially intensive and the economies of scale don’t always favor the small producers. It takes a long time to perfect and if you make one mistake, it can ruin everything.... 11 months 1 week

Series Exam QuestionsHere's the answer. Spend as much or as little time as you feel like you need to study and pass. I would recommend reading the whole Series 7 book. Despite the fact that you think you know the parts of the book already, the book will have the tidbits of legal and regulatory shit you should be aware... 5 days 3 hours
Laid off - how to positionWell, disolved doesn't mean the group as a whole was eliminated. They could have restructured the group so that it is part of a larger group in which case they need significantly less coverage to handle that space. Lets say you were in a group that dealt with originating, pricing, and advising... 1 week 4 days
Laid off - how to positionI don't even think you need to note it. I'm sure you've taken your FINRA exams, so I'm certain you have a U-4/U-5. If it comes up, tell 'em the truth, the group was disolved as a result of firm restructuring and you were let go. Assuming you weren't fired with cause, your U-4/U-5 will reflect that... 1 week 4 days

Goldman Tells Summer Interns To Go Home Before...This is exactly what it comes down to. Goldman does a damned good job at managing Reputation Risk extremely well. The will not let some shmuck kid who violates their policy get an offer because if it accidentally leaks out that they hired an intern who broke the rules, it goes back to square one... 2 weeks 4 days
Goldman Tells Summer Interns To Go Home Before...I'm gonna respectfully disagree. I think, given the current climate, anyone caught swiping out way too late of swiping in on Saturdays will be reprimanded and appearances will be kept up. This is not a hard policy to enforce and because it's in the spotlight, Goldman has to keep appearances,... 2 weeks 4 days
Doctor or Lawyer? Really... asking whether a physician who completed a residency in Internal Medicine is or is not more prestigious than a lawyer who graduated from a Top 5 Law School... What a rube! What a maroon! I'll make this simple... You, sir, are an idiot. You are comparing Apples to Oranges. Doctor vs.... 2 weeks 5 days
Why do summer interns at BBs get fingerprinted?Whether it's the FBI or not, I don't know (but I wouldn't be shocked if it were ran against a national database), they fingerprint interns in order to run a background check on them. Instead of searching for you as "John Smith" and every other variant of your name, they use your fingerprints since... 1 month 2 weeks
Series 7/63 AdviceThat's only good once you've gone through the material. Once you understand the material, then you can really burn through the tests and take them. As I said, you want to take all of 'em and then take 'em out of order the second (and third if you have the time for it) times you take 'em. 1 month 3 weeks
