Nerdy Cocktails: Pokemon Go

Pokemon. Where do I even begin? 

I actually have a very funny and relevant story about Pokemon Go. About a year ago, a good friend of mine wanted to introduce me to a game developer who, I quote, "is making an augmented reality Pokemon game that is going change the fucking world in 2016". And of course I called him batshit crazy. The meeting never happened.

Then a month ago Pokemon Go launched I laughed to myself that he was right. People were walking into potholes, into lakes, into corpses, with iPhone glued to hand.  Moral of the story? Don't doubt someone who dreams big. 

Anyways, I decided to make a few cocktails in celebration of Pokemon. In celebration of all that time I spent fixated on my shitty screen as a child .
