No doubt, we’ve all experienced this scenario: you’re happily driving down the highway, perhaps listening to your favorite podcast (DBP, of course!), and BAM! you come to a dead stop. Those dreaded all-mighty orange cones have worked their power to stop traffic for road work, and now you’re going to be late. The rage truly sets in when you notice there is only one guy working while a few stand around. We understand your frustration DBPeeps and are here to vent, discuss the purpose behind the constant construction, and even some futuristic road ideas that are being proposed (no, not hoverboards…yet!). This episode is the perfect pairing not only for our wine, Groundwork, but for your next car ride – who knows, it may be longer than you anticipate! *PSA: Stay safe and be smart, don’t drink and drive!*
Scootin’ around town has now taken a literal translation since actual scooters are suddenly everywhere! As these electric “vehicles” invade downtown areas of cities around the country, we couldn’t help but ask – What’s all the hoopla about? Well, for one (or two or three), they are cheap, convenient, and fun!! But this seemingly innocent and attractive new transit option can come with dangerous risk of serious injury or death if not used properly. Sipping on Hoopla California Cabernet, we discuss the current controversy around the scooter invasion and ponder if they are here to stay or a fad that will fizzle.
