This week I’ll be live from Lady Jane’s Hair Cuts for Men.  There will be contests, music, and giveaways including the opportunity to wine $40,000 in the dice roll game.  You had to have pre-registered prior to this Saturday to have a chance to participate.

lady janes logoDetroit-based Lady Jane’s Haircuts For Men is expanding to Wichita this summer, the West location is open and there is plans for a new Eastside venue as well. The growing company has more than 80 stores either open or in the works nationally.  The company, which bills itself as a men’s haircuttery, has all corporate stores and is not a franchise. Lady Jane’s  specializes in haircuts for men in a “sporty, friendly” atmosphere.

Services include haircuts, highlights, shampoos, coloring and waxing. “It’s not strictly just a barbershop haircut,”  says the owner.  The chain’s first Wichita store is going to go at 2556 N. Maize Road here in Wichita.  Visit Lady Jane’s and learn more.


I’ll also be talking to my good friend Marty Johnson about this years Iron Chili Head event and the arrival of fresh green chili from Hatch New Mexico.  Marty says:

“If you love Wichita’s craft beer scene as much as we do, come celebrate the 2017 JGC Chile Fest at the 5th Ever Iron ChileHead Festival!”  Local food trucks and brewers have been busy creating recipes and brewing their own unique take on yummy creations using roasted Hatch Green Chile from Johnson’s Garden Center in preparation for this competition.

Be a part of the fun on Saturday, August 19 from 12-3 PM. Tickets will include a commemorative sampling glass, an Iron ChileHead Sticker and unlimited sampling from these great brewers: Aero Plains, Central Standard Brewing, Cinder Block Brewing (Kansas City), Crane Brewing (Kansas City), Hank is Wiser Brewing, Hopping Gnome Brewing, Kansas Territory Brewing (Washington, KS), Limestone Beer Co, Norsemen Brewing (Topeka), Radius Brewing (Emporia), River City Brewing, Three Rings (McPherson), Third Place Brewing, Walnut River Brewing and Wichita Brewing.

The featured food trucks include: BS Sandwich Press, Funky Monkey Munchies, Lumpia Palooza, Drink Local Beer Truck, Kamayan Truck, Surly Mermaid, Hot-2-Trot Hot Dogs, Lolo’s Crepes, Uno Mas, Let’m Eat Brats. There is no charge for the food truck competition, except for the menu items purchased at the individual trucks.

Also back this year is live music by the Bolzen Beer Band – a party punk polka trio from Lincoln, Nebraska!

Ego Bodegas - Marionette Red 2014Good Life Guy’s Wine of the Week:
Ego Bodegas 2014 Marionette, Jumilla Spain
Rich berry and graham-cracker aromas announce a ripe, easygoing Monastrell-Syrah blend. Chewy and slightly sinewy in feel, this offers heaps of tasty but creamy oak and vanilla to go with spicy, herbal berry fruit. A creamy, thick finish is fitting for a warm-climate wine like this. Wine Enthusiast 90/100
