Episode Five - The Christmas Party

Welcome to "Live from the ManCave!!!" This time around we actually have a legitimate Christmas-themed episode. We figured now that all your decorations are down and the tree is in the garbage, we can help you with those post-holiday blues by celebrating with your favorite podcast like it never ended! And to think you say we never gave you anything...

In this episode, things start out great as CraigMakk discusses some insane and potentially deadly family holiday parties from Christmas' past; Serious Jest does his best to prove that he's not cheap with regards to gift-giving, he's just frugal and more about the thought than the gift (i.e. cheap); and even Chewie makes a couple of key yet suspect appearances from his company holiday party!

Then things quickly go to hell (or is it heaven?), as Jest preaches his most inner beliefs about spotlights from heaven, the meaning of love conquering all, and why God doesn't have to play by his own rules....all while INCREDIBLY inebriated from SoCoEeNo (you'll have to listen to know what that means).

Throughout all the insanity, you will have heard about a bunch of great gifts to give or receive, the ManCave's favorite Christmas movies of all time, and some of the best holiday beers on the planet...all while teaching you the all-new "ManCave Drinking Game!" See, that's why you listen! So sit back, grab a (holiday) drink, and welcome to "Live from the ManCave!!!"

Beer of the Show: Noel Baladin, an Italian Christmas Ale, and apparently Jest's favorite beer ever.
