DnB_web_logo“Walking through the front door of Dog and Bull, I knew immediately that I was in for a treat” That was the opening line of the first review written for Dog & Bull Music and Brew House on June 11th 2012. Just 9 short months ago this establishment’s owners set their sights on some mighty goals. I’m more then happy to report that these goals were met and then some!

Not only does Dog&Bull offer the finest selections of craft beers with twelve rotating taps pleasing the palate of any craft beer connoisseur, they also aim to please their patrons who remain faithful to the “classics” offering their clientele the best of both worlds.

At Dog&Bull Music and Brew House there’s a little something for everyone. Excellent craft beer choices, the finest live music in Lower Bucks County on any night of the week including a fabulous Tuesday open mic night hosted by Angel Casiano with some of the most talented musicians I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. On any given night of the week you’re afforded the opportunity some of the most talented performers such as Jayded John, Brian Bortnick and Kenn Kweeder just to name a few . Last and most certainly not least Dog&Bull Music and Brew house has opened it’s marvelous kitchen and is now offering a delicious meal in a welcoming home town pub atmosphere.

I’ve had the opportunity to taste test some of the Dog&Bulls mouth watering menu selections. I’ve decided to try something different each time I’m at Dog&Bull. I can tell you for sure that I’ve never been disappointed. The best burgers, wings, wraps and nachos with a “special” sauce that I’ve ever tastes. On my next visit I’ve promised myself to try one those juicy entrees that I’ve heard so much about.
Dog&Bull has captured the community. A home town pub with a welcoming staff, a fresh non-smoking environment, the finest choice of libations, excellent live music and a delicious meal. A change of pace from the norm. “I’m a believer” Dog&Bull!!
Dog and Bull-Brew and Music House is located at 810 Bristol Pike (Rt. 13 & Newportville Rd.) Croydon, PA 19021

7d0ecbc43131d9f4da7c9b87aa1980fcHere at The Out On the Town, we are always working hard to bring our readers the best in local entertainment.  In doing so, we put a lot of thought into who we feature in the “In The Spotlight” segment.  It is always our goal to make things interesting and fun and we encourage you all to continue to support local music!
For this issue, we decided to feature a band that does both covers and originals, and who collectively have had quite an interesting musical past both locally and abroad.  This issue’s featured band is 44 Fridays!
44 Fridays is comprised of local musicians Keith Bucco, Shawn Johnson, Tom Triebl and Rich Stinson.  Keith, Shawn and Rich grew up together in their hometown of New Egypt, NJ and performed together in the 90’s in various bands including one called First Offense.  They gigged all over PA and NJ and even performed on local cable shows.  In 2007, Keith and John got the itch to play live again and decided to start auditioning local musicians to form a new band.  After meeting some great candidates, they stumbled upon bass player Tom Triebl, who happened to come to the auditions with a friend who was auditioning for the position of lead singer.  After hearing Tom play, they knew he had to be part of the project they were envisioning.  Tom played in many with bands in lots of clubs on the East Coast throughout the 80’s, and also toured in Europe with a band called Valley of the Kings/UK.  He also recorded several albums in the UK.  Once the three of them got together, they persuaded Keith’s and Shawn’s long time friend and former band mate, Rich Stinson to come back on drums.  They have been together every since!
For the last 5 years, 44 Fridays has been turning heads by playing a great repertoire of music that ranges from Classic and Modern Rock to their own originals.  I asked bass player, Tom Triebl what their shows were like and he told me, “With us, it’s always a high energy performance.  We treat every show like it is our last.  We have a lot of fun, while still maintaining a level or professionalism and excellence.”  These guys like to incorporate many types of music, while adding their own touch to many of the songs as well.  You can tell they work very hard at it because they have a great sound and are very tight.  They are currently recording their first original album at Hedgerow Studios, and are hoping for a Spring 2012 release!
One of the things that 44 Fridays in known for is that they take the time to not only put on a great show, but they always have crowd participation, too.  They are always doing something special at their shows, which will sometimes include t-shirt or other giveaways.  They have lots of fans and friends who come to see them on a regular basis and these guys are very professional.  Tom explained, “we will always cater to the club or bar that we perform at to give the best show.  We always hold ourselves to a higher standard.”
You can see 44 Fridays perform at some great venues including several OOT’s favorite spots such as The Roadhouse in Newportville, PA, McStew’s Irish Sports Pub in Levittown, The Stadium at 5 Points in Levittown &The Tango in NE Philly.  They have also performed at some great events such as The Que for The Troops last Memorial Day and also headlined at The Brewfest at the Sun National Bank Arena in Trenton, NJ.  Be sure to catch their next show, which will be on St. Patty’s Day, 3/17 at The Roadhouse Inn located at 2200 Newportville Road in Newportville, PA.  It’s always a great time at The Roadhouse and with 44 Fridays in the house, you know the place will be ROCKING!
44 Fridays is Keith Bucco – Lead Vocals; Shawn Johnson – Guitar; Tom Triebl – Bass; Rich Stinson – Drums.  To stay up to date with what the band is doing, go to their website www.44FRidays.com and bu sure to “Like” them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/44fridays! ;

Vince is Goin for the Gold

Vince is pokin around in Rite Aid and discovers a new brand of condoms called Olympic Condoms. Clearly impressed, he buys a pack and rushes home. Once there he tells Joanne about the condoms he just bought. “Olympic Condoms?”, she blurts out, “What makes them so special?” “They come in three colors”, Vince replies, “Gold, Silver and Bronze.” “Oh yeah, and what color are you going to wear tonight?”, Joanne asks cheekily. “Gold of course”, says Vince proudly. Joanne responds really? “Why don’t you wear Silver? It would be really nice if you came second for a change!”

Quick Thinkin Rich

Nervous as hell, Richie Hump walks up to this girl in at Redz and says, “Would you like to dance? ”
The girl smirks and says, “I don’t like this song, but even if I did, I wouldn’t dance with you anyway. ”
Stunned however always quick with a comeback, Rich smiles and replies, “I’m sorry, you must have misunderstood me, I said you look fat in those pants. ”

Don’t Mess With Anna
After patrolling the streets of Mayfair all night, Anna came home and found her husband Ken blow drying his junk! Stunned, Anna asked, “Ken – What the hell are you doing?!?!?” When Ken woke up in the hospital he quickly realized that “Heating your dinner” was not the right answer.

Mia’s da Boss
While playing in the playground, young Thomas turned to his brother Sam and says, “You know what Sam … I think it’s about time we started cussing.”Sam agrees and nods his head in approval”
Thomas continues,”When we go in for breakfast, I’m gonna say something with hell, and you say something with ass.”
Sam likes the plan agrees with enthusiasm.
When their mother Mia walks into the kitchen and asks the Sam what he wants for breakfast, he replies, “Awww hell Mom … I guess I’ll have some Cheerios.”
WHACK!!!
Sam flies out of his chair, tumbles across the kitchen floor, gets up, and runs upstairs crying his eyes out, with his mother in hot pursuit, slapping his rear with every step.
His mom locks him in his room and shouts, “You can stay there until I decide to let you out!”
She then comes back downstairs, looks at Thomas and asks with a stern voice, “And what do YOU want for breakfast, young man?”
“I don’t know,” Thomas blubbers, “but you can bet your fat ass it won’t be Cheerios!”
Ironic?
The food stamp program, part of the Dept of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever.
Meanwhile another government agency, the Park Service, has signs posted everywhere stating “Please Do Not Feed the Animals as they may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves.”

Finally

First off, PROPS to everyone who came out and made Mayfair’s Shamrock Shuttle a huge success! You guy’s came, you partied, and you respected the neighborhood. Thank You! As a result of the Shuttle’s success, we’re already planning on another similar event in May called the Mayfair May-Fair. Stay tuned!
As far as Patty’s day plans, I’ll be headin to Redz to catch Boss Hydro and Rev playing some killer music along with their Green Bikini Contest. If you’ve got a hot frame, strap on your best bikini cause the winner will be walking out with an extra $500 in their pocket! This contest is no joke! PROPS to Redz for hosting it!
