41: Top Halloween attractions, history of the Singapore Sling, behind the scenes of reality TV, Super NES Classic
Get psyched for Halloween! This week, we run down the best Halloween attractions that you must check out this ghoulish holiday season, including Eastern State Penitentiary’s “Terror Behind the Wall,” The Forest of Fear and Disney Halloween. With the launch of the Super NES Classic, we bitch about how hard it is to get Nintendo’s throwback consoles and ponder whether Atari is crazy for trying to release a new system with so much strong competition.
Matt Giaquinto joins us to discuss what it’s like to work behind the scenes of reality television shows and explains just how real reality TV really is. Really. Hambone talks about his favorite new comics and why buying individual issues is next to impossible these days. Finally, we go over the history of the Singapore Sling – the only pink cocktail worth drinking.
Singapore Sling (Don the Beachcomber version)
Shake gin, cherry brandy and lemon juice with ice cubes. Stir in Soda. Pour unstrained into a highball glass.
