Dennis Rodman Debuts Bad Boy Vodka

The Retired NBA star has always been full of surprises. A little earlier this year, Rodman put himself squarely back on the cultural radar when he went to North Korea with the Harlem Globetrotters and ended up hanging out at Kim Jong Un’s place, talking basketball and other world issues.

Now Rodman, who never seems to shy away from a party, is back and he is aiming to be part of your party. Rodman, who has spent time in rehab (and on “Celebrity Rehab”) dealing with substance abuse, has released his own vodka, Bad Boy Vodka, that will be found on store shelves later this month,
according to the Los Angeles Times.
“A perfect representation of whom and what I am all about,” said Rodman in a press release. Not many people can say that about a vodka bottle.

Two Washington-state microbrews, Redhook Brewery and Hilliard’s Beer,
 are so excited about Washington state’s new law that legalizes marijuana that they created a beer
 in celebration. The brew will be called Joint Effort Summer Session and will be available on tap through
 the summer and then in 22-ounce bottles. It will use hemp seeds in the process and go well with any munchies.
