This week’s episode marks one year of drinking and talking about the top local stories. We recorded it at BART Arcade and Bar in the Mills 50 District and then played it in front of a live audience with happy hour-priced dranks and prizes! If you want to play along, just take a drink every time Jon says “Orlando Sentinel” or Brendan says “love.”

Please drink responsibly.

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of the adventure thus far. We look forward to another year ahead of rapping about the City Beautiful.

** Special thanks to Pinkman from Philips Phile for this week’s intro!
