Airports embracing craft beer

 

A visit to the airport bar is a common practice for many boozing travelers but the selection at such establishments is not always the greatest. Macro beers with a few imports and your average run of the mill cocktails. That being said, some airports are taking efforts to improve the drinking experience of their passengers by embracing the craft beer movement.

Here is a list of airports that have added craft beer bars and pubs to their locations, all of which are operated by HMSHost.

Hopefully if this trend continues, a beer traveler can grab a refreshing taste of local beer without having to leave the airport. Know of any other airport craft beer bars we might of missed? Let us know in the comments below.

* Cigar City Brewing at  Tampa International is the only place in the world where you can taste the Tony Jannus Pale Ale which is brewed on airport grounds.

Warcraft to try to take on Star Wars?

 

Duncan Jones’s Warcraft movie looks like it will battle Star Wars for the top spot in 2015.

Not really sure this is a battle but more of a horrible idea!

 

Warcraft‘ is looking to join the fray of 2015′s big movies, and has announced a release date of December 18, 2015.That’s a bold move as ‘Star Wars: Episode 7‘ has yet to announce their release date yet, but word was that the film was eying a December launch. Might there be a release date war for December 2015 already?

 

The Hobbit‘ finishes up its trilogy, and will be released around the same time those films were, and will likely have some elements in common (studios often think “if it worked before…” when it comes to release dates).

 

Friday 13th’s next installment to be a found footage film?

 

Earlier this summer, it was announced that the 'Friday the 13th' franchise would be returning to Paramount Pictures, its home throughout the original run of movies. Many classic horror fans hoped this would be a good thing as the franchise left the hands of producer Michael Bay (who released a reboot at Warner Bros.) and would return to its home.

But, it looks like the studio behind 'Paranormal Activity' has some new ideas for Jason Voorhees that classic horror fans probably won't like: found footage and the return of Michael Bay.

Pacu UPDATE:

 

 

The Nut biting fish is being found all over the country now!

Although it's native to the Amazon, a testicle-eating fish species called "Pacu" has been turning up in places including Denmark, France and Illinois.

Now, a large Pacu has been found in northern New Jersey, just more than 10 miles outside New York City.

Retired bus driver Tom Boylan hooked a 10-inch-long Pacu on Saturday at Third Ward Veteran's Memorial Park in Passaic, N.J., according to The Bergen Record, which posted a photo of the fish.

Pacu have wide teeth shaped like molars and strong jaw muscles that allow them to crack open tree nuts and other tough aquatic foods. Somewhat terrifyingly, however, the fish have been known to mistake human testicles for tree nuts. Two men in New Guinea reportedly died from blood loss after a Pacu chomped on theirs.

The exotic fish, which migrate upstream in order to spawn, can weigh up to 55 pounds and grow up to 3 or 4 feet in length.

“Most likely, someone had [the 10-inch Pacu] in their fish tank and it grew too big, so they dumped it,” Pat Egan, manager at Absolutely Fish, told The Bergen Record after the store identified the fish. “We call them ‘tank busters.’ We don’t even sell them because they grow so big."

While the news of a Pacu in Passaic County is likely to scare some local residents, the good news is that the fish reportedly can't survive cold temperatures, so swimmers should be safe by spring.

   

Still, it might be wise to keep your swimsuit on.

 

Pacu discoveries in the United States have been reported in Alabama,[10] Arizona,[11] Arkansas,[1] California,[12] Colorado,[13] Georgia,[14] Iowa, Idaho,[15] Illinois,[16] Indiana,[17] Kentucky ,[18] Maine,[19] Maryland,[20] Massachusetts,[21] Michigan,[22] Minnesota,[23] Missouri,[24] Missouri,[24] Nebraska,[25] New Hampshire,[26] New Jersey,[27] New York,[28] North Carolina,[29] North Dakota,[30] Ohio,[31][32] Oklahoma,[33] Pennsylvania,[34] South Carolina,[35] Texas,[36][37] Utah,[38] Washington,[39]Wisconsin,[40] and Wyoming.[41] [42] State wildlife authorities typically advise home aquarists who wish to get rid of overgrown pacu to cut the heads off the fish and dispose of them as garbage.[40]

Pennsylvania haunted house issues 'Naked' challenge

 

SINKING SPRING, Pa., Sept. 23 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania Halloween park is challenging visitors to pass through a haunted house in the nude for the "Naked and Scared" challenge.

The Shocktoberfest attraction in Sinking Spring said guests can pay $20 after midnight, once the park's regular hours have ended, to pass through the haunted house for a challenge inspired by the Discovery Channel's "Naked and Afraid" reality show, WKYC-TV, Cleveland, reported Monday.

The park said participants can go either "nude" or "prude," an option to leave one's underwear on during the challenge.

Officials said only guests over the age of 18 will be allowed to participate and they will undress in a "semi-private preshow building" to keep them out of view of minors and non-participating customers.

The park's website said the attraction is not meant to be sexual and "no sexual misconduct, inappropriate or disrespectful behavior will be tolerated."

Georgia man's obituary: 'He attracted more women than a shoe sale at Macy's'

 

A Georgia man who died last week might not have been a living legend. But his obituary is already legendary.

 

"Men wanted to be him and women wanted to be with him," William "Freddie" McCullough's obituary, published Saturday in the Savannah Morning News, reads. "Freddie loved deep fried Southern food smothered in Cane Syrup, fishing at Santee Cooper Lake, Little Debbie Cakes, Two and a Half Men, beautiful women, Reeses Cups [sic] and Jim Beam. Not necessarily in that order."

 

The 61-year-old Bloomingdale, Ga., father of six and grandfather of seven "hated vegetables and hypocrites" and was "a master craftsman who single-handedly built his beautiful house from the ground up."

 

McCullough "was also great at growing fruit trees, grilling chicken and ribs, popping wheelies on his Harley at 50 mph, making everyone feel appreciated and hitting Coke bottles at thirty yards with his 45."

 

He loved to tell stories, "and you could be sure 50% of every story was true. You just never knew which 50%."

 

"Freddie adored the ladies," the death notice, written by his son, Mark McCullough, continues. "And they adored him. There isn't enough space here to list all of the women from Freddie's past. There isn't enough space in the Bloomingdale phone book. ... He attracted more women than a shoe sale at Macy's."

 

According to his obituary, McCullough "was killed when he rushed into a burning orphanage to save a group of adorable children. Or maybe not. We all know how he liked to tell stories."

 

The obituary has generated more than 150,000 page views for SavannahNow.com, and many readers who signed the online guestbook said they didn't know McCullough but would've liked to.

 

"Freddie, I did not know you, but wow," one wrote. "I'll bet that Jim Beam is now served in heaven. Ladies in heaven ... he has arrived ... enjoy!"

 

"After reading Freddie's obit, all I can think of is Tanya Tucker's song 'I Wish I'd Known The Man,'" wrote another.

 

"I reckon Freddie was a hell of a guy," a user identified as "stinky" wrote. "But when I cash my last check, I would sure like whoever wrote this obit, to do mine. Nobody will believe it, that really knew me, but it will be a good read. I'll be having my funeral in a phone booth, so there will be standing room only. I'll see you up there Freddie."

 

One reader, identified as “Trooper Andrews” of Knoxville, said he did know McCullough:

 

I had the pleasure of arresting Mr. McCollough in Tennessee when he and his girlfriend were in Knoxville. They both had too much to drink and were arguing over Marlboro points when they were in town looking for the hotel where Hank Williams Sr. died. He asked me if I would keep his goat for him while he was in jail. I did. Willy and Freda both left town on bond and never came back. He would call a couple of times a year to check on his goat. The goat died five years later, but Willy still called to say hello at Christmas. I still have his Zippo lighter he left in the back seat of my patrol car.

 

Loose baggy pants foil Florida church robbery suspect's getaway

 

By Barbara Liston

ORLANDO, Florida (Reuters) - A robber who was running away with his hands full of loot from a Florida church was caught when his baggy pants started slipping off, a sheriff's spokeswoman said.

She said the man, Anthony Jason Garcia, 31, had been praying in the sanctuary of a large Catholic Church near Walt Disney World on Wednesday when he arose, went into the gift shop, grabbed the cash drawer and ran toward the courtyard with church maintenance director Joe Larkin in pursuit.

As they ran, Garcia's baggy pants began to fall down, said Orange County Sheriff's spokeswoman Jane Watrel.

"So here Garcia is, both hands holding the cash drawer and trying to pull up his pants. So he (Larkin) sees an opening," Watrel said. "He plunges for him and pulls his pants down further which trips up the guy."

Larkin put Garcia in a wrestling hold called a "cradle" until deputies arrived a few minutes later, Watrel said.

She said 12 customers and four clerks were present at Mary, Queen of the Universe Shrine during the robbery, but most of them did not immediately notice what was happening because Garcia was so quiet and did not use a weapon.

Garcia was arrested on a felony robbery charge. He remained in the Orange County Jail on Thursday.

Church officials say the church gift shop is the largest in the southeastern United States. The sheriff's office said it was its policy not to disclose the amounts of money in robberies.
