Followed by “Frat Party Got Out Of Hand Friday” and “Shh Don’t Tell Our Girlfriends Saturday.”


Eventually Evan Williams branched out of its traditional flavor and offered up new varieties in cinnamon and honey. With these new flavors on deck, Evan Williams was pretty self assured in its ranking over human companionship:
