I'm in Good Company! - The late great Patrick Swayze and I have a very loose connection thanks to Pabst Blue Ribbon. And I mean loose! As in - no connection at all - but it's fun!

The great crew at Pabst Blue Ribbon pulled an old commercial from the archives and found that it contained a young Patrick Swayze dancing the night away to some SWEET Disco tunes.

I just feel like I'm in good company. Pabst had me put my culinary, and PBR love to work, by writing the official Pabst Blue Ribbon cookbooklet. The cookbooklet featured select recipes using Pabst Blue Ribbon as one of the ingredients. And, back in the day, they had Swayze make a commercial. I'm not saying I can dance, or look anywhere as handsome as Swayze could in his DISCO digs... but - we have a connection... right? Probably not.

Granted, the two things - his commercial and my PBR cookbooklet - are decades apart. And, they really have no common connection other than the PBR brand - and that I think it's pretty cool... and my wife loves Patrick Swayze movies. Sad that he left us so early.
