It’s Keyword Soup Time!

with 4 comments

It’s now been three months since I started writing Startup Adventures in NYC. Those of you who know me know that I’m an analytics fiend, especially when it comes to search terms. After all, this blog started as 45% outlet for my thoughts and 45% SEO experiment. (The remaining 10% is lulz.) Thus and with limited commentary, I present The Random Shit People Type in to Search Engines to Find This Blog, in order of search frequency and with interesting bits bolded.

The NYC Startup Drink List

with 26 comments

I hosted a party with Superconductor’s Matt Brimer a couple weeks back. Since I’m more or less incapable of throwing a party these days that doesn’t turn into a NYC tech mixer, we decided to embrace it and craft an appropriate drink menu.

I wish I could take credit for more of this, but it’s primarily the work of Brimer and HomeField‘s Reece Pacheco.

[Click to enlarge]
NYC Startup Bar Drink Menu

They tried to capture the spirit / theme of each startup in the drink. Or something like that.

The Tequila shot

The Boxee: Vodka, triple sec, lime, shaken, serve on rocks in tumbler

The Beer + Shot of Bourbon, Vodka or Tequila

The Etsy: Vodka, muddled lemon, sugar, ginger ale

The Foursquare: Vodka, sour (shaken), garnish w/cherry + orange

The GoodCrush: Vodka, triple sec, lime juice, cranberry, shake on ice and strain into martini glass.

The Hot Potato: Jager-Bomb

The Hunch: Gin and tonic

The Kickstarter: Muddled bitters, sugar, orange, cherry, add rocks, bourbon.

The OMGPOP: Lemonade, Gin, Peach Schnapps, sour mix. shake. Highball or glass on the rocks.

The Muddled mint + sugar, bourbon, sour. Tumbler glass on rocks.

The Postling: Bourbon, Ginger Ale, highball or tumbler on the rocks.

The ScoopSt: Vodka, Gin, Rum, Tequila, Triple Sec, Sour Mix, Jagermeister

The SpeakerText: Tequila, mixers

The Tumblr: Vodka Cranberry with a lime.

The Yipit: PBR

It’s rare that I stumble upon a humor site that is genuinely, regularly funny. Many have glimpses or flashes of true brilliance, but few can do it almost every post. Say hello to wondertonic:

At its core, WT’s humor “recipe” often implants the grotesque into the serious or mundane. See their latest post for a perfect example:

Give her a triforce

I, for one, know that my significant other would appreciate 4chan-themed tokens of my admiration.

And certainly don’t go without paying a visit to People Sighing on Twitter.
