Chicago-style Ecto-Cooler makes it big on Internets

If you follow PC on Facebook, you’ll recall awhile back we posted a link to Dan Shannon, of the Chicago Division Ghostbusters, and his as-good-as recreation recipe for Ecto-Cooler. Well, that recipe is getting a lot of attention lately.

For starters, the CDGB’s posted a video how-to on the drink, which ended up on Fark, which in turn put it basically on everyone general interest pop culture webblog out there.

Earlier in the week, Dan sent in this clip of Brad Jones of Cinema Snobs trying their recipe out at Flashback Weekend.

What can I tell you – more and more the verdict on the recipe is coming in as “Holy crap, that’s perfect!” So, try it out for yourself before the Summer weather packs it in entirely.

Chi-Town GBs patches – get them while you can!

With the spectacular increase in GB franchise teams around the world in recent years, comes a spectacular increase in GB franchise logos. Some teams have even gone so far as to get those logos turned into patches for their uniforms – you can blame the Arizona GBs for that. And HawaiianGB too, as both were arguably the first to get patches made. And to a lesser degree, Proton Charging, for boldly messing with the logo and then advertising it for 15 years.

The Chicago Division of Ghostbusters undertook some custom patches and were offering some for sale, to help offset some of the cost – I got two, they look so snazzy. And word is, there are only a few left, so if you’d like one, and swear to wear it proudly, contact them through this GBfans thread, which also contains information about the cost, etc.
