The mood is light and the Manhattans are stiff and bitter on an unexpected and hilarious episode of In the Drink. This week's guest is not a beverage professional, but he's easily one of the most interesting people to stop by the show. Eric Gilliland is a TV writer/producer who wrote for The Wonder Years, Roseanne, That 70's Show and Who's The Boss? While working on Roseanne, he gathered up a Peabody Award and a Golden Globe, a few GLAAD awards, and a WGA nomination. Tune in as he and Joe make Manhattans on-air, talk about drinking abroad and share some hearty laughs. This program was brought to you by Michter's.
