Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 13 December 2011 by WNST Staff

Honorable Mention: High School Basketball-Bel Air @ Perry Hall (Wednesday 6:30pm), St. Frances @ John Carroll (Wednesday 7pm); Mixed Martial Arts: Strikeforce-Gilbert Melendez vs. Jorge Masvidal (Saturday 10pm from San Diego live on Showtime)

10. Lyle Lovett and His Acoustic Group (Thursday 7pm Rams Head Live); Bret Michaels (Wednesday 7pm & 10pm Rams Head on Stage); Pietasters (Friday 8pm 9:30 Club), Virginia Coalition (Saturday 8pm 9:30 Club); Devo (Thursday 8pm State Theatre), Phil Vassar (Sunday 8pm State Theatre); Chris Isaak (Monday 7:30pm Birchmere); Anthony Hamilton “Back to Love” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

I am not a Lyle Lovett fan, but I am a human being. Because I am a human being, I am ABSOLUTELY a fan of this tune. One of the happiest days in my life may have been the day I walked off a hangover into the DC Farmers’ Market and saw a folk band playing the song. If it hadn’t been in DC it would have been the HAPPIEST…

Is there any chance I could go see Bret Michaels and skip everything besides this?

I saw the Pietasters most recently at Artscape this summer. They were fantastic. They always are.

Virginia Coalition is ABSOLUTELY the best band you’re not listening to. Unless you’re not listening to U2. There aren’t people that don’t listen to U2, are there?

9. Glenn Clark’s Christmas Party (Saturday 8pm undisclosed location in Monkton); “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” & “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol out in theaters (Friday); Christian Finnegan (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv)

This is how last year’s Christmas party ended…

That’s my girlfriend cleaning up vomit. The vomit happened to be on the ceiling. It is what it is.

Oh…and last year’s party also involved the following….

Ours were of course much manlier than this, but you get the point. This is not to be missed…like…say…ever.

Great time last night at The Original Steakhouse

Posted on 02 March 2008 by WNST Staff

What a great event it was last night at The Original Steakhouse. I can not imagine a better place to have watched the UFC pay per view last night than there. It was a packed house with not an empty seat to be had and people lined around the bar to watch the fights. The Original Steakhouse staff was a great host for the evening and kept everyone happy.
When Anderson Silva choked out Dan Henderson in the main event, the place erupted with joy while some had a look of shock on their face. There were some other great fights including Chris Leben knocking out Alessio Sakara in the first round of their fight and Yushin Okami knocking out Evan Tanner with a devastating knee. All in all it was a very solid card from top to bottom. Hopefully we can go back to The Original Steakhouse for a future UFC pay per view.
Want to thank Paul Kopelke our General Manager, Emily from WNST for all of her help last night at the event and setting the event up, Joey from Bud Light, John Rallo and his crew from Ground Control Baltimore, Thyrl Nelson and his wife for stopping by last night, Chris (The Virg), Brian who destroys me at Ground Control and his wife for coming by, Mike from Towson and the other listeners who stopped by last night and said hello. Again big thanks go to the Original Steakhouse staff for their hospitality last night.
I owe a huge thank you to Tap Out, UFC, Downtown Locker room, Fight magazine, and Bud Light, for providing us with great giveaways last night during the event. We had some fun with the trivia questions in between the fights, including a question about what sponsor was on the back of Chris Leben’s shorts last night that everyone noticed.
Hopefully we can have another event next month when Matt Serra defends his title against George St Pierre.
