Guilty Displeasures: 10 Things You’re NOT Allowed to Dislike

May 9, 2016 |

About two years ago, Saturday Night Live did a taped piece about a group of austere agents hunting down any rogue person who doesn’t conform to worship Beyoncé, the “Queen B” – or is it “Queen Bee” or even “Queen Bey?”

Spelling aside, SNL’s sketch demonstrates the ubiquity of Beyoncé’s influence and the high esteem in which all people are meant to regard her. Extreme exultations spread across social media and peer groups whenever Beyoncé drops new material or asserts her authority as the queen. Casting doubt or scorn on Beyoncé worship is… socially dangerous.

You will not catch me (publicly) saying anything negative about Beyoncé. I don’t want any of the men or women of my life to see me as a renegade. But isn’t it sort of odd that there are some things in our popular culture that are expected to be unanimously beloved? Those who don’t personally care for Beyoncé’s music (or even her public image) find themselves with the opposite of a guilty pleasure – instead of something they like that they’re not supposed to, they dislike something that they’re supposed to love.

Here’s a look at a few guilty displeasures – entities in pop culture that you’re NOT ALLOWED to dislike. Read More

Event Recap | Bacon & Beer Festival 2015

November 12, 2015 | 1

If bacon is good and more bacon is better, then even more bacon with lots of incredible craft beer is the absolute best. The Bacon and Beer Festival returned to Denver on Sunday, October 8… and it was glorious. Bacon is an extremely versatile ingredient and this festival was a platform for some of Denver’s top chefs to show us its versatility. It was also a great opportunity for local breweries to show how their beers can pair with diverse swine dishes. Like last year, proceeds from the event benefited Metro CareRing and Project Angel Heart.

Revolution Brewing | Rosa Hibiscus Ale

July 1, 2015 |

While I understand that this is currently a tough-to-find-beverage, being that it’s only distributed in Illinois and Ohio, it’s well worth the mention. Honestly, when I first tasted the highly anticipated Rosa Hibiscus Ale, I came away with a different perspective. This initial judgement could have been my innate, strong affinity for copious amounts of hops in my beer, but as we all know we can’t always destroy (in the best of ways) our sense of taste with high ABV IPAs, especially this time of year, filled with hot day drinking, BBQ hopping, musical tailgating, etc. Session beers shine through. True to form with the season, like summer itself, it is best to just keep things simple. Subtle. The less is more approach.
