The Olive Garden invites the grog back!

A few months ago LJ was nice enough to share some of her Olive Garden Fun Bucks with me which we promptly spent on a five-star lunch/dinner.  It was such a great meal that I grogged about it as soon as I got home.   Well it turns out that the local Olive Garden management were so moved by our love of Olive Garden that they invited us back and even gave us a 5$.  I am not sure which of the two occasionas had the better food, but one thing JB and I can agree on is that Olive Garden is GREAT!

Let us share our experience with yall after the jump!

Do Not Kill Me, I am with Jesus/God

Don't Shoot I'm With God showed children all over America that you can be hardcore and cool while still being a good christian.  I used to follow them around town and record some of their shows when I was in high school and I felt like it was my duty to share this inspirational (christian) music with the worldlll

State of the Union

Last night, our current president gave the annual state of the union, but we at the grog our much less interested in what our alleged president has to say about the current state of our union than we are about normal everyday folk like yall (those reading the grog, whom I consider to be the only REAL Americans out there).  Special thanks to the IUSB Political Science Club for allowing the grog access to their event  :).

So the grog crew attended a viewing of the presidents speech to ask IUSB students what THEY thought the state of the union is, and the responses might just surprise you!    After the jump!

Chicken-Gate Explained

2011 was a huge year for the protesting circuit with its success in the Occupy South Bend and its spin off Occupy Wall Street protests, but 2011 had another note-worthy protest, Chicken-Gate.  In the early part of 2011 the campus of IUSB became the battle-ground between lovers of Chicken-Filet and their fantastic chicken-sandwiches and the IUSB Protesters Union.  For all this time I had very little idea why the P.U was protesting but now Jason explains all in this exclusive groggy interview.         Unedited interview after the jumpy...

Jason and Occupy IUSB

The other day I was able to sit down with IUSB's resident protester / fighter for equality, Jason.  He is the one who began the Occupy IUSB campaign to fight against the oppressive policies of the IUSB administration.  Some folks have criticized Jason's tactics as too violent, while others say it is not violent enough.  Though many have died on both sides, on Thursday January 12th 2012 Occupy IUSB declared victory as the ruthless administrators of IUSB have agreed, after much death, to meet the demands of Jason and his movement.

Here is Jason explaining what Occupy IUSB is and his declaration of victory and a moment of silence for all those who have died in pursuit of justice.  After the jump...

A Groggy View of a OSB - GA

It has been a while since the South Bend Police Department violently evicted the Occupy South Bend folks out of the park (by South Bend Police Department I mean winter of course) and into warmer surroundings.  Last Wednesday I was fortunate enough to be able to witness the grand General Assembly, which they hold weekly at a secret location (Bruno's Pizza in downtown South Bend).  The group discussed various topics ranging from nuclear disarmament to planting community gardens to help feed hungry folk.  I was only able to stay for an hour or so before my wife called and ordered me to perform some task for her.

While the video may be groggy i hope the general feeling of what a GA is like is conveyed.

El Paraiso Taco Time!!!

Located in downtown South Bend at the corner of western and main street, El Paraiso, home of the dollar taco (on Wednesdays and Sundays, though maybe that has changed...)   that tastes like.. a 20 dollar taco or something, seriously, it is great and they have a funny commercial now so i guess the secret is out that El Paraiso has the best tacos in northern Indiana.
