International Beer Day. Need we say more? What about “It’s happy hour?”

Have a great weekend!

Duesseldorfer from Napoleon Lajoie’s official base ball guide 1906.

Ads for some local DC breweries from Boyd’s directory of Washington & Georgetown 1867. (FYI, the “Island” in those addresses refers to the area below and west of the old canal in DC—pretty much SW DC.)

And the remarkably beer-heavy Industrial history of Milwaukee (no surprise here) with some breweries, including Schlitz’s.

Figure skating queen Kim Yuna sings and skates to ‘Let It Go’ in Samsung’s new CF

As a true ‘ice queen’, figure skater Kim Yuna sang her own version of ”Let It Go" from ‘Frozen' as she took to the ice to showcase her grace and skills for a CF!

I’ve been waiting to see a figure skater perform to Let It Go but it turns out that we do not only see a pure skating performance Kim Yuna, but she uses her vocals for this commercial’s version of Let It Go as well!

Bill “Dollar Bill” Wirtz in an ad for Old Fitzgerald Bourbon, photographed at the Chicago Stadium, 1973, Chicago.

Often vilified, Bill Wirtz died in 2007, passing ownership of the Blackhawks to his son Peter who then shortly after, passed leadership to his brother Rocky.

Since taking the helm, Rocky has been credited with the revival and success of the current franchise.

I suddenly remembered the existence of the greatest commercial ever made and wanted to make 100% sure that you have also all seen it.

It is truly life changing.

I laughed so hard, I cried. And then I went and got my sisters to watch it.

Just about any beautiful woman could become a professional beauty–not through success at court, but in the emerging celebrity culture associated with illustrated periodicals and mass-circulated photographs. The professional beauty needed not be rich, highly born, nor well educated–provided she had sense enough to escape from committing any glaring missteps–all that was required of her was that her face should be approved by society as a great beauty and her future was assured. Recognition as a P.B. was reward in itself.
