The Speakeasy - Episode 80 - Cripple Creek Holiday Spectacular!
It's The Speakeasy Cripple Creek Holiday Spectacular!!! By that, we mean Damon Boelte, Aaron Polsky and Mike O'Rourke are hanging out, drinking bourbon and talking shop. Cripple Creek is a pop up bar by Damon & Aaron's - it's their vision of the marriage between rock concert and cocktail bar. The menu looks like a set list, the drinks come in plastic cups and the music is loud. Make no mistake, we're talking about the high-end forward thinking cocktails that these guys are known for. Re-imagine classy drinks on another raucous episode of The Speakeasy. This program was sponsored by Roberta's Pizza.
"We're rock n roll dudes - we wanted [Cripple Creek] to be more about the drinks and shared experiences with your frieds...getting drunk, having fun and getting sweaty." [03:00]
"As long as you have plumbing and ice you can do whatever you want." [11:00]
