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

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.
