Handmade Sodas At The Original

As a soda lover, I have to confess that my favorite sodas aren't anything you'll find at the store, but freshly-made, old fashioned soda jerk sodas. While I love everything from Diet Sunkist to yummy Ski, if there's a fountain soda, that's what I'll choose! At The Original, you can get delicious house-made sodas every day made fresh with natural ingredients and cocktails using these fine sodas.

Fantastic Frog Fathers

Many fathers in the animal kingdom present some pretty lofty dad goals, proving that caring fathers exist in many different species--even if it's only to ensure the survival of their own offspring. Poison frogs, or poison dart frogs, are a great example of dads who spend a lot of their time and energy ensuring their chilren's safety and best chance.

Best Episode By Season

The latest trend is to rate and rank everything on the Internet, which is fun unless you're looking to see what a movie's rating is and you need to know if it's PG-13 or not for the teenagers hanging out with your kid and all you can see is that it's got a 63% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes... Otherwise, it's really fun to analyze our media this way and see what everyone's opinions are.

Big Boss Man

For those of you who follow the Grateful Dead on Twitter, you're used to the regular treats like swag updates, concerts and tribute band schedules and, possibly the best gifts of all, links to old shows that you can watch from the comfort of your own home, often on YouTube. Today is no exception with the gift of the performance of "Big Boss Man" from the June 16, 1990 concert in Mountain View, California!

Color-Changing Cocktails

Have you ever had a color-changing cocktail? It's a feat of magic and a feast for the senses, but it doesn't have to be complicated. Empress 1908 gin contains peaflower, which gives you a really easy way to turn your drinks blue! The trick, of course, is to make sure you pour it right in front of your guests to change the color of your drink before their eyes. At the link, you can find out how to make other colors, too.
