Johnnie Walker

I've never been good at filling these things out, but here it goes. I like long walks in cold mountain air, preferably with snow on the ground. I enjoy drinking fine soda by the crackling fire, and deep tissue massage. I hope to one day grow up an become and astronaut, so I can fly to Venus to see if that's really where women come from. If it's true, I'll bring one back for you, too. Unless it's a dude you want, and then you're out of luck...sorry. My favorite month is October, because Halloween is the best holiday ever! It allows me to openly proclaim my love and obsession with scary movies without being seen as some sort of lunatic. Okay, not too much of a lunatic. I'm a huge fan of rock and metal music, and you'll often hear me blasting the control room speakers into oblivion every night during my show. My engineer doesn't like me very much, since he has to fix them. Sorry, Mike.

Hot Chick Hitting on Straight Women Scores More Often Than Guys Will [Video]

Guaranteed, if you or I stood on the street, randomly asking out hot girls as they passed, we'd be arrested probably within minutes.

ReVamp Shares Behind the Scenes Footage from Their Grand Rapids Show and More [Video]

On April 4th, Iced Earth, Sabaton and ReVamp kicked off their US tour here in Grand Rapids at the Intersection.  They all played amazing sets, even with the equipment problems ReVamp had during the day.

Apparently, their gear didn't arrive in time for the show, so they had to get some rental gear to play the show, and it pushed the show start time back a bit.

Check out the beginning of the behind the scenes video for some footage backstage at the Intersection.

These aren't just hot, medium and mild buffalo sauces.  They're serving up a Honey Bourbon Sauce, Carribean Jerk, Chipotle BBQ dry rub, and Honey BBQ.
