Whether you need a good read or just a good drink, this book on the history, culture, tradition & science of booze will loosen you right up. Written by Washington Post columnist (you know those guys hit the sauce) Jason Wilson, Boozehound does more than just explicate the world of libation, it also quenches your thirst for humor, opinion and advice.
Bearing the silhouette of a small sword, the Espada is modeled after the sabers of the Spanish Conquistadors. With its Old World looks and modern tech, like a 3.5” stainless steel blade & aluminum frame, this blade is quite the weapon. For acts of machismo like cutting chewing gum from your girlfriend’s hair or popping shotgun holes in beercans…it’s perfecto.
If a war happens to break out at the dive bar, the nightclub, or even while you’re walking the beach with your date – you’ll be ready for combat. Military styling & refined detailing, like a satin lining, will make you feel like an officer even if you’re just a private in training. At ease, soldier.
It looks like it’s from the age of steamships and railroads, but style will never go out of style. With no breakable parts like zippers or snaps, this beautifully handcrafted suitcase is made to last forever. Maybe that’s why it comes with a 100-year warranty. Made of fully waterproof, full-grain boot leather and built bombproof with classic lines, hardware & finish – Saddleback Leather Co. comes correct with this case, available in three sizes.
Get your grass in gear with these exotic Italian gardening tools. Like everything bearing the Lamborghini logo, they’re beautifully designed and built for performance. Hedge trimmers, chainsaw, shrub shears – they’ve got the whole quiver and unlike their 4-wheeled counterparts, they won’t guzzle gas. All these tools are electric or cordless-rechargeables.
Look closely, these watches from upstart-brand Mica, are made of wood. Not since the Golden Age of the Bavarian cuckoo clock has a wooden timepiece looked so cool. Mica offers four models carved from 100% maple. You better get one before the termites do.
Backpackers and minimalists alike will love this thing. Same goes for anyone who’s ever carried around their empty water bottle wishing they could just stash it. The Vapur anti-bottle does it. It’s not just BPA-free & dishwasher-safe, it’s also crushable. Packable. Finished your drink? Okay, now just squeeze it flat and jam it in your pocket, pack, briefcase, whatever and keep on keeping on.
Punk rock will never die. Especially when the guys who do it best, Bad Religion, keep making noise and pushing buttons. This seminal group – loud and political – has never shied away from their anti-establishment roots. The Dissent Of Man is the group’s 15th album and the sound remains a burning, peeling wall of angst-ridden punk rock.
There are a few key reasons why this new book, the Jimmy Page Photographic Autobiography, is epic. One: as the guitarist of Led Zeppelin, Page is a certified Guitar God. Two: the book is fine – museum-quality, with a Moroccan leather binding and 500 archival paper pages. Third: Genesis Publications is only printing 2500 of them. You better hurry.
The Jerk was a great movie – but Pizza In A Cup was an idea that just didn’t work. Boxed Water, on the contrary, makes almost too much sense. The carton is made of recycled paper. Shipping the cartons flat to the water supplier is way greener and unlike a plastic bottle, the used carton goes easily back into the recycling stream. On top of that, 20-percent of Boxed Water profits go back into supporting water and forestry foundations.
