Give Cider a Twist with Hot Ruby


I'm a huge fan of ciders – there's just something about them that hits the tongue just right. From going to the Farmer's Market as a kid and picking up some refreshing cool cider to a warm mug on a crisp winter night (or like a "chilly" 65 degree night here in Texas), it's all good.



That's why I was excited when Hot Ruby sent me some of their cider to sample. Made from a special family recipe, this isn't your typical cider, this drink is made out of cranberry, pineapple and citrus juices along with an exquisite blend of spices. I'm not even particularly a fan of cranberry juice and I was digging it, so if your Thanksgiving meal NEEDS cranberry sauce, this will definitely be right up your alley. There aren't any dyes or preservatives in here, either, which is a big plus.

For your more adult drinkers, this is a really good mix with spirits, too. And of course, the aroma of hot cider can't be topped. So this holiday season, give Hot Ruby cider a try and put a twist on an old fall classic.

Dave Chappelle Delivers One of the Best Opening Monologues in SNL History


Having Dave Chappelle handle the opening monologue for Saturday Night Live seems like a bit of a gamble, particularly when the episode he's hosting is the first one in a world where we know Donald Trump is going to be our next President. But while you never know what Chappelle is going to say, you know it's going to be poignant. That was certainly the case on Saturday night, and his monologue is well worth watching. Let's get more monologues like this, please, SNL.

This SNL Sketch Is Just Too Funny


Benedict Cumberbatch hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend, and while many of the sketches were uneven, this one cracked me up. Cumberbatch plays a college professor who gets a little too enamored with Chad, the delightfully ignorant character Pete Davidson plays. Chad has made an appearance in SNL once before, as Julia Louis-Dreyfus' pool boy, but he's even better here, despite having an even more limited vocabulary. The juxtaposition of the two characters is wonderful, and makes for a delightfully entertaining few minutes. Enjoy!

Budweiser Commercial Has Harry Caray Calling Final Out of the World Series


In case you missed it, the CHICAGO CUBS WON THE WORLD SERIES. That hadn't happened since 1908, which is crazy to think about even though everyone from Chicago (and probably the baseball world as a whole) has known about it forever. 

One of the biggest Cub fans out there was Harry Caray, the team's longtime play-by-play announcer. Caray died in 1998, so he never got to see the Cubs take home the title. But thanks to the magic of editing, Budweiser has given us a taste of what it might have been like if Caray was calling the final out of this year's Series. And it's magical. Enjoy.

Louis C.K. is All In on Hillary


Election Day is just a few short days off, and while many Americans have early voted (and you still can through tomorrow), there are still plenty who haven't yet made it to the polls. Louis C.K. has some advice for you: "If you vote for Hillary you're a grownup; if you vote for Trump you're a sucker; if you don't vote for anyone, you're an asshole."

Regardless of who you vote for, please go out and do it. Exercise your right to try and make your country better.
