“I will teach you how to eat and drink properly. Well, not “proper” proper, but how I like to do it.” – Sammy Hagar
Singer, guitarist, and connoisseur of all things rock and roll lifestyle Sammy Hagar has a new book coming out this September titled Are We Having Any Fun Yet?: The Cooking & Partying Handbook. AWHAFY, published by Dey Street Books (formerly It Books), will be hitting the stores on September 15th, and is a guide to all the things that you will need to cook, and more importantly drink, like the legend himself. From recipes and pairings, to some of his stories behind the foods, Hagar will be expanding on his already successful foray into the food and drink industry. Seriously, this dude already has his own brand of tequila, Cabo Wabo, which is something I just learned and will be on the lookout for, as well as his own chain of Wabo Cabo Cantina restaurants, and even a brand new rum- Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum.
The book is available for pre-order now.
