He Wins! He Wins!

23 May

Well friends, we have a winner! That’s right, our Steamy Steam Whistle contest has drawn to a close, with lucky winner @bunkerton taking home the Steam Whistle prize pack of two tickets for a tour of Steam Whistle, a bottle opener, a Steam Whistle iPod cover, and any extra Easter chocolate we have.

This brainy winner won with his haiku below:

Here is a haiku

Of Mike Burns’s love for beer

Steamwhistle is great

Love it Mike Burns, just love it. Leave us a comment as to how you’d like your prize delivered, or email us at hishersandtheirsblog@gmail.com, if you’re going to you know, send us personal deets and stuff. Like your credit card number.

SPEAKING OF CREDIT CARDS – guess who’s credit card got used for a fraudulent charge? Mine. It blows. I called Scotiabank and they’re “looking into it” for me. Gee, thanks. However, on a secondary call to them, they let me know that they had neglected to tell me it could take 90 days, and I would have to pay the fraud fee and they would refund it. Whaaaat. It hardly seems fair. And the Scotiabank rep hung up on me. I was so mad, steam came out of my ears. Which reminded me to write this post.

If you stole someone’s credit card info, I would also advise not buying something called “Hotfile” with it. They’re bound to notice. Do something simple, like buy groceries at Loblaws or something.

If you punked someone’s card, what’s the first thing you’d buy with it?

A Steamy Steam Whistle Adventure

30 Apr

Congratulations to me! Yesterday I found out that I won a contest on The Indie Machine and totally won a Steam Whistle prize pack. It was awesome. I signed up for the contest in early April, so I had totally forgotten about it when they emailed me.

That’s how He and I found ourselves heading down to the brewery last night for our special tour. I also won this sweet prize pack below:

The tour itself was great. Both He and I had already had the tour twice, but it’s still interesting because the different tour guides tell you different facts about the beer, the brewery, and the owners. If you haven’t been on the tour and are in the Toronto area, it’s definitely worth checking out. Plus, you get a beer – oh yeahhhhh. Spoiler Alert – keep your eyes peeeeeeled, ‘cus this week we’re having a contest where you can win your very own Steam Whistle tour prize pack! Whoop whoop! 

One of my favorite parts of Steam Whistle that I haven’t experienced on the other tours I’ve been on, is their photobooth. You take a beer in, the camera snaps, and you chug like an animal. However, cans don’t work too well:

As part of the prize pack, we also got to hang around for the Unsigned Series show. On Friday night’s, they will sometimes have bands down to the brewery to play. You pay $5 and get to see three (usually) awesome bands, and drink some beer – it’s not a bad deal. Two of our friends who work at the brewery were also around that night, so it was nice to see them as well.

The bands playing tonight were Freedom or Death, The Darcy’s, and Wildlife. Having not really heard of any of these bands before (at least me), I was excited to check them out. I spent the afternoon at work listening to Wildlife on headphones, and I was really into their sound. I listened to The Darcys while getting ready, and they were… okay.

Freedom or Death opened the show, and He was into them. I was not. Nothing against the band, just not my preference of music. The crowd seemed to really be digging them though – I was surprised at how many people came out, it was a really decent sized crowd. The Darcys were next, and they were pretty good. We didn’t end up staying for Wildlife, but they were the band we were both most eager to see. Oh well, we’ll always have their Myspace.

If we hadn’t won the prize pack though, we would have been at the Free Whiskey show at the Silver Dollar, which is hopefully where you were if you weren’t at Steamy Steamwhistle. I cannot stress how awesome this band is, and not just because they’re friends of ours. Keep an eye on their tour page and go see them when they come to Toronto again – in fact, we’ll go with you and make a date out of it. They’re playing TO May 28th and June 5th – so go! go! go!
