Episode #150 The 50th Episode Spectacular!!

CW: there is a bell that is rung very frequently in this episode, so be warned if you have any issues with constant ringing bells.

In today's episode we talk about 49* memories (we really didn't keep a solid count, but it's a lot) from the first year of our podcast

We taste a gin and tonic with Chase Gin, from the UK

Finally, we discuss pretty much everything that we've experienced over the last year

We want to thank you for making our podcast a part of your lives over the last year, and we hope to continue to bring happiness to your lives in the years to come. Thank you for following us on this journey.

Best wishes for another wonderful year!

Andrea and Aaron.

Episode #149 Stacked Deck Brewing

In today's episode we explore Stacked Deck Brewing in Saint Paul, MN 
Taste some of their delicious beer
Finally, we discuss the turnover in Saint Paul Breweries

Right off the bat, 23 Skidoo means to "go away," "scram," or otherwise leave. I feel Skedaddle is better at conveying that notion, but 1920's slang was never perfect.

Not too much for notes this episode, but please do check out our teespring store and help support the content you enjoy so much!

Thank you as always for listening, and we hope that 2020 is going to be an amazing year for everyone!

Episode 148 Ox Cart Arcade and Rooftop

In today's episode we explore the retro themed Ox Cart Arcade 
We'll taste a ginger lime Hot Toddy
Finally, we learn about the history of this quirky recent revamp

Aaron searched high and low, and it appears that he threw the bag away, and all that is left are a handful of potatoes. If we ever do find out what the delicious and creamy potatoes were, we'll make sure to let you all know.

Since neither of us actually took a photo of the amazing bowling machines, we had to find one from the photos on google. Credit to Skylar Thompson for tagging Ox Cart in this wonderful pic!

Have a happy new year everyone! We thank you for listening and sticking with us in this first year of the podcast!!

Episode #145 Toilet Tourism

In today's episode we get dirty talking about terlets and what we do with them on the road

Our taste for this episode is a take on an old fashioned that has Rum as a base, rather than a whisky.

We used Lawless rum for this cocktail. If you'd like to recreate this on your own, the recipe is:

.75 Oz Lime Juice
.75 Oz Simple Syrup
2 Oz Rum
12-14 dashes of bitters

If you'd like to see the episode of How to Drink that we got the idea for this drink from, check out the link here

Episode #144 Bent Brewstillery

In today's episode we talk about Bent Brewstillery in Roseville, MN
We taste several options at their taproom
Finally, we discuss the history of Bent (and a lot of really old monetary systems)

The law in the state of MN (Section 340A.22) that governs micro distilleries is a bit circular, and has been hard to navigate for many new distilleries, as shown in this post from The Growler. The law forces only one sale per person per day on site, and limits the size of the bottle to 375 ml for on site sales. It's more complicated than that, but that's a decent start to the confusing cycle that has been created.

We here at Travel by Proxy want all of you to know about the crazy ways that currency used to be created and used, and want you to start with the Wikipedia entry on the Halfpenny, aka the Ha'penny, and for those of you wondering about the monetary system in The Name of the Wind, see the Kingkiller Wiki entry on the common currencies of the lands.

Episode #143 Tongue in Cheek

In today's episode we talk about Tongue in Cheek in Saint Paul, MN
We taste another hard seltzer from Fulton
Finally, we discuss the concept behind Tongue in Cheek, and what makes it special to us

The Photo attached is all rights reserved to Tongue in Cheek, and is included in their google photos.

We really do suggest you go to Tongue in Cheek, and if not in an area that you can get to this specific restaurant, you should find something in your local area that is similar, as the meal can be an experience in and of itself. Aaron and his wife really enjoyed their trip to Tongue in Cheek, and plan to go back again soon, and any place you can find with a similar mission will be well worth the time and expense for a nice night out.

Also, if you all have suggestions for a Brunch tour in the Twin Cities, or any locale close to you, let us know, we need more places to go to and experience for you, and give our reactions to.

We haven't taken any photos of the new PC yet, as we're waiting for the desk to be completed, and we're really excited for that to come to be.

We really appreciate you all, and hope you have a great Thanksgiving, and we really are looking forward to completing our first year as a podcast!
