Extra crispy chicken. Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup. Belgian-style waffles. How could it be better? Fingers has an idea that includes dessert items from a vending machine.

Millennials are most willing to purchase a haunted house. April needs her house smudged, and wait til you hear the gruesome reason why!

267 – Melania Trump wants someone fired, so what’s the big deal? Monica Lewinsky is back in the news. Does anyone really want that?

The Florida recount is a mess. Why? Because it’s not about a recount. It’s about whether or not we count legal votes alone. Tony Katz can’t believe he has to explain this to people, but here we are.

First Lady Melania Trump wants Deputy NSA Mira Ricardel fired because of the way Ricardel treated her staff, and potential leaks the deputy made that were disparaging to the First Lady.

Monica Lewinsky is in the news, making a docu-series about her sexual relationship with former President Bill Clinton. Are we supposed to care? Are we supposed to give Bill a pass? And the military needs serious upkeep.

264 – Is It Fraud In the Florida Recount Or Something Else? Big Tax Returns Set For 2019 and Nancy Pelosi Wants Your Pew! Pew! Pew!

Law professor Jon Eastman discusses the Florida recount with Tony Katz. Is it on the up and up, or is there nefarious activity taking place?

Experts say 2019 is going to be a year of big tax refunds. What is Producer Ari going to spend it on? (And all the credit to comic Gary Gulman for the “holiday sauce” reference. You’ll hear it.)

The Drink? – Col. E.H. Taylor Bourbon
The Smoke? – Four Kicks Limited Edition

Last week, SNL’s Pete Davidson was a tool. This week, he’s apologizing to Congressman-Elect Dan Crenshaw. Did SNL get the apology right?

Rep. Nancy Pelosi might get the Speaker’s gavel again, and she says gun control is her first priority. Does that also mean that babies with fake guns can not be photographed? What do we mean? Listen, and try to keep your jaw off the floor.

Eat! Drink! Smoke! was recorded at Blend Bar Cigar in Indianapolis, IN. Joining Tony are radio host Fingers Malloy and social media maven and podcaster April D. Gregory.

Also, Chick-fil-A remains the leader of the quick-service food world with the possible addition of mac & cheese to their already perfect menu line-up.

And why does everyone freak out about Daylight Saving Time?

Corruption exists in government, but some of the examples out of Oregon are downright disgusting! Speaking of disgusting, Pete Davidson of Saturday Night Live makes fun of congressional candidate Daniel Crenshaw, who lost an eye during a tour of duty in Afghanistan.

***NOTETony accidentally said Crenshaw was a Marine. Crenshaw was a Navy SEAL. The insignia on his glass eye is the SEAL Trident. Apologies for the error.***
