Como Does Sake

Just because you’re in Search for Como doesn’t mean you have to smile.

Here’s Matt with a fan at a sake bar in godknowswhere NYC.

The admirer had this to say:

“It was great seeing him, and obviously all my friends and I were completely starstruck, but at the same time it was a little uncomfortable!  He wouldn’t smile for pictures. Not even a half-smile!

And the demands he made!  He insisted that we’d scream (and I mean SCREAM) sake chants and bang on the table as hard as possible each time we’d be about to chug.

He didn’t even do it himself!  He just watched us.  He had so much control.  We all felt like his puppets, and I think that’s exactly what he wanted.  He didn’t even drink the sake…in fact, I’m pretty sure he ordered a gin and tonic.  Who does that at a sake bar? Seriously, who does that?”

As per the fan’s request, I made sure to blur out her face and cover up her name in the above image in order to protect her anonymity.

I know I’m just an intern, and I can’t really speak up and express my opinion, but if she wanted to remain anonymous, it didn’t make much sense for her to have posted this to Facebook for TJ and Mike “like” it.  But, what do I know?

PODCAST Episode 27 – I Like Your Tonic/Do You Mind If I Sit?

Matt and Mike go a bit deeper than usual on this podcast. Drunkenly, not philosophically.

The high-and-mighty social media intern tried to stop the two of them from finishing a fifth of gin, but he failed miserably and is now set to receive zero credit/compensation for his summer internship.

Anyway, Matt and Mike get a bit nostalgic and meticulously detail a past night out with the Como gang and its satellite bubs.

This is probably the least focused and directed podcast to date, and, in all honesty, it’s pretty difficult to write any sort of relevant description. The cover image for this podcast should be more than enough.

Drinking Ain’t What It Used to Be: The De-Inebriation of Society with Its Dishonorable Alcoholics and Their Partiality towards Substandard Drinks

What are you doing right now?  Seriously, think about it, what exactly are you doing?

Let’s go through it together: You’re on your computer/phone/tablet. You’re using the Internet.  And, you’re searching for Como.

Real cool, bro, get in line…

I think we can all agree that “get in line” was absolutely not the right phrase for the above sentence, but don’t rule queuing up out of the question.  Mike, TJ, and I have spent many hours building up this site with bandwidths upon bandwidths of exclusivity, so if we want you guys to wait out in the cold for a few hours before even catching a glimpse of Como, y’all better not complain.

This making sense?  I mean, it shouldn’t, but back to my point from before: if you’re going to be searching for Como, you better have had as many gin and tonics as I’ve had before starting this explorative writing regarding society’s repulsion towards boozers and the damaging effects this has had for all of us, drinkers and teetotalers alike.  Speaking of “starting this,” let’s get to it.

Okay, so for all our returning devotees, by now, you know all about initiating orgies, calculatedly slaying poon, and communicating with girls afflicted by some degree of daddy issues.  For those unfamiliar with these Como-specific topics, please immediately read our earlier blogs and listen to all our podcasts so that you’re caught up to speed.
