Politics with a Punch is our local version of "Politically Incorrect." It started in 2002 and after more than 100 shows and 13 years, it has become a local political tradition. The show is jointly produced with Steve Sabludowsky of Bayoubuzz.com and it has grown into quite a success story. Punch is a fast-paced, free-wheeling, no-holds barred discussion of what is happening in our city, state and nation. We place a premium on having a good time and expect plenty of laughs as we discuss the controversies and the outrageous antics of our local leaders and scoundrels.

As usual, we have picked an outstanding panel for Thursday night with some of our favorite all-stars plus some exciting newcomers. This program will be a very special edition of Politics with a Punch, our  2015 Kickoff Show.

Discount Tickets: $15.00 per person/$25.00 per couple.

Hope to see you this Thursday night at the EIFFEL SOCIETY!

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?
