August 16, 2014: Today is Elvis Memorial Day, marking the day in 1977 when he passed away. Like with a number of musicians, I can see why people thought he was amazing, but his stuff isn’t my cup of tea. But without him, music today might be a very different thing.
Food and drinkwise, today is Bratwurst Day and National Rum Day, both of which I can totally get behind. I love a good sausage (that’s what she said), and I find rum to be one of the more tolerable spirits. I’ve even used it in place of tequila with margarita mix, to great success.
