BDaB #005: Bike Clubs, MMOs, and Back of the House (w/ Guests)

Welcome back! This week Dr. Xander Gerrymander was unable to join us, but we’re also joined by two guests from our Monday night gaming group, Christina and Mike. They brought delicious whiskey sours with them, made with Rebel Yell Kentucky Straight Bourbon.

In our first segment we talk with our guests about their involvement in and with the Dropout Bike Club, giving insights into Bike Club culture in the Pacific Northwest. We also speak at length about Portland’s legendary event Zoo Bomb (which you can see more about in the Veer Documentary). In the gaming segment we talk about Dark Age of Camelot, Star Wars Galaxies, and our other favorite Massively-Multiplayer Role-Playing Games from yesteryear, as well as what kind of drive it takes to be an awesome guild master in such a social scene. We close out with insights into and stories from the life of a worker in the “back of the house” of bars and dives and more.

Drop us a line! You can follow us on Twitter and Instagram as “Breakfastpuppy” or email us as either NPC, Justjacob, or DrXanderGerrymander at Breakfastpuppies dot com! We have a Discord Channel, Facebook Page, and Google Plus Community, too! And let us know your thoughts by leaving a review on iTunes! As always: Rubber Side Down, May your Dice ever roll Crits, Always Drink Responsibly, and Remember to Tip your Bartender!
