About this Episode

This week Tony and Fingers asked themselves "what would be the perfect drink for Independence Day weekend?"

The answer was beer. But they couldn't get away from their bourbon roots. So, the guys decided to put it all together by drinking the Dragon’s Milk White, Bourbon Barrel-Aged Stout from the New Holland Brewing Company.

Tony Katz and Fingers Malloy host Eat! Drink! Smoke! recorded live at Blend Bar Cigar in Indianapolis, IN. Along with the Dragon’s Milk White, the guys smoked The American cigar from J.C. Newman.

There's a bipartisan movement in Congress to get the FDA out of regulating premium cigars. Tony explains why this is a great idea that is long overdue.

The restaurant owner sees the fee as a method to close the wage gap between staff who did not make tips and those who did. Will customers go along with this new fee? Should they?

Meanwhile in Texas, a restaurant chain is offering teenagers the opportunity to earn $50,000 as an attempt to lure workers to seek gainful employment. The process involves hiring teens and training them in-house to move into management. Will this be the new way business hire people?

There is a new weight loss tool which gets wired into a patient's mouth that looks like some sort of torture device. The fellas describe it, and list the many reasons why it's a bad idea.
