Welcome to “The Hardy Boys Drinkbook.” I’m Charles Wefso and each episode I’m going to sit down with writers, actors and comedians to talk about a book in “The Hardy Boys Mystery” series. Each episode we have one of our favorite bartenders mix us up a signature cocktail sip while we read. It really eases the pain of being pummeled by the hamfisted prose. The drink recipe and pictures are available at www.hardyboysdrinkbook.com. The Hardy Boys Podcast is produced by Jack and Charles Wefso. Our music is provided by Danny Overby.

Episode Eighteen: The Twisted Claw ft. Brian Kusic pt. 2

Here is part two of Episode 18: The Twisted Claw ft. actor Brian Kusic! Brian suggested one of his favorite haunts as our featured bar this week. I went to Gerard's Pool Hall in RiNo, in the alleyway between Walnut and Larimer. It's by Il Posto. Anyway, bartenders Darren Harris and Stephen Claustre made me a delicious drink called "The Railbird." It's made with vodka, aperol, fresh grapefruit and lime juice and a basil simple syrup. It's like a suger-bowl picnic in a glass. The pool hall is...

It's Episode 18 of The Hardy Boys Drinkbook Podcast! It's "The Mystery of the Twisted Claw!" I'm so excited to finally have Brian Kusic as a guest on the show. Brian is an actor in Denver and one of my favorite people in the industry. He played multiple characters in an all ages show that wrote for Buntport for All Ages called "Siren Song: A Pirate Odyssey," but his best character was Toots God of Recorders. When I found out this next book had pirates in it, I knew exactly who to...

Hey everybody! Here's part 2! My guest for this episode is my brother and co-producer Jack Wefso, an actor of great regard. This is an especially great book in my opinion, because it features something that the books have been sorely lacking: a gang with a gimmick! In this stupid and pointless adventure, we encounter The Goggler Gang. They wear nylon stockings over their faces and then put light-up goggles on over that. So they're functionally blind. Watch a great web series that I write...
