ATG 2012 Finals and Teddy’s Famous Spicy Bloody Bertha Vampire Cocktail

UPDATE: 9/14/12…The Olate Dogs WON! Wow what a surprise! When it came to the top four it was a difficult choice but hey, everyone likes dogs (or they should – and I’m more of a cat person – but dogs are awesome!)


ATG 2012 Finals and Teddy’s Famous Spicy Bloody Bertha Cocktail

Wednesday is FINALS Night of America’s Got Talent! Woo Hoo.

(That could also mean that fall is finally here. Thank goodness the nights are cooling down!)

We’ll all be there watching to see who does well and who completely blows it.

The SIX Finalists are….drum roll please…

David Garibaldi & His CMYK’s – We love this guy and his cute friends. Art for everyone! We also love the fact that he is a local boy (Sacramento, CA)

Joe Castillo – I feel he is a long shot. Love what he does with sand. It is amazing but he’ll have to come up with something that has a super WOW factor tonight.

Olate Dogs – What can I say? They are sooooooooo cute. A million dollar winner? I don’t know but I adore them!

William Close – This guy is amazing. I’d love to see him live. I’d also love to see his studio where he builds this stuff.

Tom Cotter – My bet is on him for winning (but you never know – the dogs and William Close could also win). Perfect timing. Always entertaining. A true professional.

The Untouchables  – Cute kids but I feel they are being exploited by their handler who has an ego the size of Nebraska. The way these kids jiggle and cry is too scripted. There is something very very wrong in this picture.

So let’s watch and see who wins! I’ll update the blog later tonight and share our thoughts – and don’t forget to vote.

In the meantime Teddy is glad the show is almost over. Of course he has been happy with BOTH Baseball (Go Giants) and Football (Go Niners) is on now! Woo Hoo. In the meantime he is fixing cocktails!

Teddy’s Spicy Bloody Bertha

  • 1 (46 fluid ounce) can vegetable juice (like V8 or you can use tomato juice)
  • 16 oz blood
  • 8 oz vodka (or more to taste)
  • 1/2 (10.5 ounce) can condensed beef consomme (find it in the soup section)
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 tablespoon celery salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper

Note: If you aren’t a vampire you can leave out the blood.

Mix everything together, pour over ice, add pickled green bean or green olive stuffed with onion or blue.

And remember – never drink and drive. A buzzed drive is just the same as a drunk drive!

America’s Got Talent – the Vampire Family votes! And Werewolf Cocktails of course!!!

Monday is here so of course that means the Vampire Family is watching America’s Got Talent.

Tonight was a fun fun show from New York featuring some of the TOP 48. Best of all we FINALLY got to vote. So many, in fact most of the acts crashed and burned. Sorry but I don’t think little kids bopping around need to get the votes. We figured that we could go to the skate rink or any of the local high schools and pull kids out and they’d do BETTER than most of the acts tonight. But a few stood out for us. Two REALLY stood out.

Our choices for the top 4 are:

Juliette: David Garibaldi and his CMYKs (Sacramento Boys!!!!), The Scott Brothers, Todd Oliver for the top 3. If I had to pick a distant 4th it would be Nikki Jensen.

Garrett:David Garibaldi and his CMYKs , The Scott Brothers, Todd Oliver for the top 3. Then as a distant third Nikki Jensen.

Clara: David Garibaldi and his CMYKs , The Scott Brothers, Todd Oliver, Shanice and Maurice and Jarrett & Raja.

We’ll find out tomorrow who wins!

Teddy refuses to vote so we vote for him. He liked our top three too.

In the meantime he made cocktails.
