We like our cups purple, and our drink bubbly. Ladies & Uglymen, this is the Purple Cups & Champagne Podcast.
Just a few family members discussing everything under the Sun; music, sports, relationships, memories of yesteryear, that weird splashing all over the place thing that happens when you try to pee after sex, you name it - we cover it all.

Episode 104 | Tres Poderes
The three-headed monster (pause) is back to it like you're used to it!
Let's keep the description light. This time it's just us talking our sh** discussing what we love, and giving you that classic purple cup love!
Episode 103 | Constantly Create Shop
Continuing our entrepreneur circuit this time around we got to visit the Constantly Create Shop out in New Hyde Park, NY. It was a dope experience and right from the gate the shop's founder, DJ Kinslow, surprised us with some fire hoodies for this episode!
DJ dived into his beginnings as a car salesman (a la Handsome) with a dream, a dream he worked on and toward every waking day. As he saved up from every car sale and invested in his then side gig, designing and printing tees. Inspired by Kobe's last game and his obsession with sports memorabilia, he realized he could do better then most vendors out there. The rest is history.
Sit tight and enjoy this episode. It's one full of dreams, dedication and grind.

Episode 102 | W.A.R.
The world of American sports has been stagnant for a long time. Aside from MMA and the UFC, no one has been able to keep up with the big four (NBA, NFL, MLB & NHL) - but that's about to change.
This week we had the honor of sitting with not only an amazing entrepreneur, but also a Queens NY born and raised go-getter, Chris Viso. Some might recognize his name from the Miami party scene as he's been the brain behind many top businesses out there, including; The Franklin Hotel, Bacon Bitch, Drunk Bitch, and his pride and joy, Shh, one of Miami's top night clubs hit by the pandemic.
We sat to discuss Chris' past. His humble beginnings growing up in Queens, raised by a single mother on the beat, to being a server at STK before the world really knew what it would become. To working on Wall Street without a college degree. He studied many of these spots and gained experience that would one day lead to him owning multiple restaurants and even his own hotel.
After 6 years of making miracles happen and living the life many can only dream of, at the young age of 32, Chris decided to retire. A move that left many, including his own childhood friends in disbelief. And fortunately for us, this is where the story truly begins.
Chris has finally decided to come out of retirement and discuss with the world his newest game changer... W.A.R.
We won't get into it here, but watch the show and in the second half get ready to have your mind blown. The scope of competitive sports is about to turn a whole new leaf. Ladies and Uglymen, enjoy!

Episode 101 | Veterans Minimum
This week's episode was an honor, something that's been in the making on our end for a hot minute. Thanks to our colorful guest, fam of the show - Stephanos Groutas (@StephGrout), we finally got Mr. Veterans Minimum himself, Nick Dais (@nickdais10) to stop by and join the Purple Cup gang!
Nick is the creator of the long running and well praised show, Veterans Minimum (@VeteransMinimum). Twice a week he gets on there and without fail delivers hard hitting content surrounding sports, sports betting, life and more.
We dove into his beginnings (after he stunted on us letting the crew know he was 2000+ shows in), the ups and downs of podcasting, what drove him to really get into high gear, becoming part of one of the top creator networks, Blue Wire, and more. We talked NY sports, the impact of betting on fandom, where he sees his show in a few more years, and he joined in on some Purple Cups #BrunchBanter fun.
This was a very fun and natural episode, leaving us with the hope that he'll be returning for more down the line. Ladies and Uglymen, enjoy and please remember to subscribe and give Cheddie some feedback (he thrives off that type of sh**).

This day took loooong to get to when looking back. We knew when we embarked on this journey it would come with ups, downs, and turn arounds - and we learned to weather each storm on the fly.
Won't make this long and drawn out. We just want to thank all who've supported, still support, and will support. You are greatly appreciated.
Ladies & Uglymen, for the 100th time - ENJOY!
Episode 099 | Cuz & Fren
Gang gang! (Dear feds; I am not gang-gang, I do not gang-bang) Hogwash is back in the mix! We get the new daddy for a second time to join the cast again as he just wants to make sure he's included in Episode 100! (Recording June 13th from the world famous Queens Bully restaurant).
The guys chime in on recent audience comedian attacks and the toxicity plaguing the circuit now thanks to the moves of overly sensitive William Pinkett. We also get into the recent string of celebs getting their cards pulled for being cheap tippers, thanks to social media!
Joshie's REAL intent behind making it to this episode was none other than this segment... MR. MORALE AND THE BIG STEPPERS!! We go into depth on this AMAZING work of art by the young prophet of our time, Kendrick Lamar. The guys discuss the impact of such art at this point in time, what kept Kenny at bay for so long, how he did when it comes to the "Big 3" and much more. We also get into YSL and their Rico charges as well as hater a** Nick Saban trying to make Deion look bad now that the youth has incentive to go to other colleges outside the big few.
Keep it coming
Love the energy and the topics. Keep it coming
Who ever comes up with the topics, and yo, I need to make him my mad
