Ya Won’t See This on the World Poker Tour!

Never lose a dime playing poker. Guaranteed!

But you could lose your life!

That’s what happened to Wild Bill Hickok today in 1876. He was killed during a poker game. He was holding a “Dead Man’s Hand”, two pair; aces and eights. I wager the Royal Flush Girls kept their smiles on the whole time though.

Going up?

Today in 1892, Charles A. Wheeler patented an escalator, instantly thrilling every slinky on the planet.

The Roller Derby becomes possible!

The world’s first roller skating rink opened today in 1875 in London.

Our Quote of the Day

One of my favorite actors, Peter O’Toole was born today in 1932. I can watch his spirited performances in LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, THE RULING CLASS, BECKETT, THE LION IN WINTER, and MY FAVORITE YEAR over and over again.

Mr. O’Toole gives us this grim piece of information; “The only exercise I take is walking behind the coffins of friends who took exercise.” TMI, perhaps.

Drink 4cast 4 2day

I’m told today is National Ice Cream Sandwich Day. I’ve got just the thing for after the parade.

Ice Cream Sandwich Cocktail

3 Oreo Cookies

1 ¼ oz. Crème de Cacao White

1 oz. Half-and-Half

2 scoops Vanilla Ica Cream

½ scoop Crushed Ice

Combine ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until smooth and creamy.

Serve in a tall glass.

Garnish with another cookie.

I scream. You scream. We all scream…

Cheers!
