Summer Megaparty: Kool-Aid, Pokemon, Beer, Blah.

I finally decided to clean the tick-infested Kool-Aid Section, and in celebration, there’s a brand new Kool-Aid review. Don’t get too excited…it’s just “Slammin’ Strawberry-Kiwi.” While lacking the cultural punch of a Purplesaurus Rex, the stuff tastes so good that … Continue reading

Summer Megaparty: Theater Edition Luke Skywalker!
