May 28, 2019

We celebrate Jake's thirty-something birthday with some LSM Absinth as we discuss the spectacle that is Eurovision, with potentially some planning for next year, and then move on to Männertag, the drunk and rowdy "Man's day out" that is set to take place next weekend. 

On this episode, we are drinking LSM Absinth - The Leipzig Absinth is distilled from a total of 14 herbs in a copper distillate. Vermouth, fennel and hyssop form the basis of flavor. Regionally produced honey in combination with licorice, clover and cinnamon complete the strong-aromatic profile of this extraordinary absinthe. Through herbal extracts, it receives a slightly bitter note and the beautiful color to look at. Vermouth, catnip and clover, as the ideal companion for crazy moments, give it the finishing touch. To the bat country!

The Leipziger Spirituosen Manufaktur, a young Leipzig company, stands for uncompromising quality, sustainable raw materials and artisan art. All their products are hand-crafted with the aim of sourcing all raw materials from sustainable and regional sources - out of conviction. Sophisticated production methods and great attention to detail make their spirits a special taste experience, developed and produced from a combination of passion and science.

Eurovision Recap - After our Eurovision Viewing adventure, the guys break down their take on the event itself, including the underlying politics of the voting, Madonna's awkward appearance and performance, and the broadcast production itself. 

Männertag - Germany's "Man's Day" has nearly enveloped Father's Day with it's critical mass of debauchery. We discuss ways it is participated, what to look for and what to avoid, and discuss ITASAT's own participation in the future with early discussions about our plan for a Leipzig Drinking Olympics!
