Happy New Year, listeners! We’re ringing in 2017 (along with Mercy Street’s Danielle Stack) with 2016’s critically acclaimed The Edge of Seventeen, the John Hughes-flavored coming-of-age comedy starring Hailee Steinfeld as a particularly surly teenager navigating the rocky waters of adolescence, with occasional help from her take-no-prisoners teacher (played with cynical perfection by Woody Harrelson). Enjoy along with our custom cocktail and drinking rules!

We’re taking January off of regular episodes, but Alcohollywood On Tap and Twin Cinema will continue every Friday. In the meantime, we’ll start putting out the first four parts of Indiana Jones and the Monkey King in lieu of normal podcasts, which will keep going after we come back in February!
