Ricki and the Flash

Who loves Meryl Streep and wants to see a new Rick-related movie?!  Surely someone.

Fair warning, the reviews so far have been pretty 'meh'

Brewery Rickoli

Hat tip to reader Erik the Red for keenly noticing a Rick hidden in his midst.

Per their website:
Our brewmaster, Rick Abitbol, has been professionally brewing award-winning beers along the Front Range for over a decade. Rick is respectful of beer styles and traditional brewing technique, however, he has long been an innovator of style and not afraid to color outside the lines. He was one of the first brewers to explore the Black IPA, which has become a mainstay in breweries and competitions alike. We love our hops! That’s not to say you won’t find any wonderfully malty creations on tap. There are many, but what you will notice is the variety in our hoppy selections. And always be on the lookout for Rick’s newest creations. In addition to brewing some mighty tasty beers, we also remove the gluten from all of our brews. We believe in making great craft beer more accessible to everyone, so we use an enzyme to reduce the gluten in our beers to under 10 ppm. We take great pride in our brewery and our taproom. Please swing by and check it out for yourself.
Their website boasts that they are the smallest brewery in Colorado, and Gluten-Free!

And here we even get a tour with some history of his story

After the jump, there's another interview with Rick himself, homebrewer-turned-businessman.  Rick discusses his beer in more detail, including a lot about the gluten piece.

Other Rick Show?

It's no secret that I watch Spike's Bar Rescue.  I like to see the concepts they come up with and make sure of the drinks they add to the menu.   The most recent episode featured a place called Brix, owned by Rick Reich, in Sunset Beach, California.  There's a good amount of Rickage already just based on that intro sentence.

Then, not two minutes into the show, I see this:
...and I was all "Oh, HELL NO".  
 Turns out, it wasn't really the Rick Show.  Just a guy with a failing bar.

There's a blog that gives recaps and post-show updates, here, if you're interested in reading a bit more

For the next couple months, you can watch the full episode, HERE, if you want.

Profiles in Rickery: the Rictal Bristle

Hold on just a second.  I know that something about the term "rictal bristle" sounds rather...shady.  But it's not.  As you can see, it's quite normal.  
Rictal bristles are, essentially, just stiff feathers found around the bill and eyes of birds.  They may be like bird eyelashes.  Birdlashes?  Beaklashes? Billashes?

 In truth, based on a minimal amount of reading I've done, it seems as though science has yet to determine what purposes they fully serve for the bird.

If you're interested in making your own judgments, you can read more in this paper entitled The Role of Avian Rictal Bristles by Roger J Lederer in 1971, which was truly the heyday for bristle-talk.  Here's another blog post about them, and another quick post here.
