Legend Bourbon Dinner Pairings – The Public House and Trolley Barn Fermentory & Food Hall

This is my 4th round working Legent Suntory. A true collab of east + west, this is a bold Kentucky bourbon made by Jim Beam master distiller Fred Noe, and blended and refined by Suntory chief blender Shinji Fukuyo. Legent is matured in oak and finished in wine and sherry casks. Get hints of spice and dried fruit. Two-nights back to back at some of Charlotte’s great spots; The Public House and Trolley Barn Fermentory. …

The California Takeover – SNAPCASE – EARTH CRISIS & STRIFE

In 1996, Victory Records released an iconic live album called The California Takeover, which featured recordings from a three-band bill in L.A. that boasted Earth Crisis, Snapcase and Strife — three of the most popular and influential hardcore bands of the Nineties.

Another notable work is Magdalena Abakanowicz’s …

Hello, my name is Justin Driscoll. Originally from New Jersey, I call the wonderful state of North Carolina home. 

I might have taken your photo at some point or met you at a Rock N Roll show? However, I also have many other facets of my life I am passionate about. I started this site to talk about some of those things.

Whether it be guitars, guitar gear, Harley’s, Jeep stuff, photography, vinyl or travels, I’ll be on here to chat about it.
