Our first celebrity is the story about Chief Happy Hour Officer Joel McHale (probably best known for his role in Community) - and I didn’t know a CHO was a thing until I read this story, but I’d like to become one - is now slinging drinks for Q mixers. They have a playbook with conversation starters and recipes you can make with, surprise, their line of mixers. Honestly - just seems like a good bit of fun and I’m here for it. You can download the digital booklet and find out Joe’s signature drink recipe for the “Five O’clock Fizz” at https://qmixers.com/joel-mchale-cho/

Our next celery is, well a group of celebrities: Drake’s Virginia Black Decadent American Whiskey, Bob Dylan’s Heaven’s Door Redbreast Edition, Matthew McConaughey’s Longbranch, Scottie Pippen’s DIGITS Bourbon, and Terry Bradshaw’s Bradshaw Bourbon. Between the beverages, there seems to be a clear winner and a clear… not winner. I mean they’re all celebrities, there really aren’t any losers in the bunch - but some beverages should maybe go through a rebrand or remix, or just fade away (sorry Drake fans).

And finally for the fusion I mentioned - Burlington Vermont’s Zero Gravity had a presence in the space next to it - but has now officially expanded into and taken over the space formerly occupied by the Great Northern Restaurant. It’s now a spacious beer hall with some cozy spaces, a pool table, and more. The counter-service menu is exactly the same, whether you order at the former taproom bar or at the grand antique bar on the restaurant side of the building. A wall has been removed so people can also flow between the spaces. The menu and beverages have shifted, but they still seem to offer some good choices for take-out and dine-in service. I look forward to checking out the differences soon myself.
