MEET THE KING


Jason Powell is The Drink King, and he puts a new spin on alcoholic beverages found around the world. He is a connoisseur of wine and spirits, and a master of their unique histories and cultures.

An evening with The Drink King is like no other, as he unites mixologists and thirsty guests through a little healthy competition: mixologists compete to create the best drink of the night, judged and voted on by those in attendance. A single spirit is chosen to highlight, and it’s up to the mixologists to shake it up in a modern and sexy way.

While guests enjoy a new spin on an old favorite, the Drink King paints a picture of the spirit’s

background. Combining humor and unknown facts about the beverage, the Drink King caters to the 21st-century palate while paying homage to the spirit and its history.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

  754. Nigeria plunged into a civil war from 1967 to 1970, and became a federation that was independent in 1960. It’s since switched between democratically-elected civilian authorities and military dictatorships, until it reached a secure democracy with its 2011 presidential elections being viewed as the first to be conducted pretty fairly and freely, in 1999.

  759. The result of the 1961 plebiscite created in the polity an imbalance. Southern Cameroon elected to join the Republic of Cameroon while Northern Cameroons chose to continue in Nigeria. The northern area of the country was now far larger than the southern area. In 1963, a Federal Republic was established by the country, with Azikiwe.

As petroleum sales fuelled the rise of national subventions to states, the government became the center of political battle and the threshold of power in the country.

The Nigerian National Democratic Party came to power in the Western Region of Nigeria, when elections were held in 1965.

  764. Rioting broke out in 1966, and military leaders, mostly of Ibo ethnicity, assumed control. In July, another military coup put Col. Yakubu Gowon in power, an option unacceptable to the Ibos.

Thousands of Ibos took refuge in the eastern region, which declared its independence on May 30, 1967 as the Republic of Biafra. Civil war broke out.

As oil production and sales grew, the Nigerian authorities became increasingly dependent on petroleum revenues and the international commodity markets for budgetary and economic concerns. It failed to develop other sources of the market for economic stability. That spelled doom to federalism.

In the 2014 ebola outbreak, Nigeria was the first state to effectively check and eliminate the Ebola hazard that was ravaging three other nations in the West African area, as its unique method of contact tracing became an effective approach later used by other nations, such as the Usa, when Ebola risks were found.

  1030. An imbalance was created in the polity by the consequence of the 1961 plebiscite. While Northern Cameroons decided to continue in Nigeria Southern Cameroon picked to join the Republic of Cameroon. The northern part of the state was now far bigger as opposed to southern area.

When elections were held in 1965, the Nigerian National Democratic Party came to power in the Western Region of Nigeria.
