Moleskine is getting to the point that it’s the ubiquitous notebook. The Scotch tape or Kleenex of the written word world. We’re fine with that, but we need constant visible reminders about the important things happening today because we can’t be bothered to take said ubiquitous notebook out of our pocket umpteen times a day. The point is this – even with event reminders on your smart phone of choice, you’ve forgotten an important date by lunch time because you dismissed it. It’s not your fault, but that won’t stop the significant other from holding it against you. The solution is to go low tech. The 2011 Moleskine Desk Calendar is just a giant Moleskine notebook with detachable pages labeled with the day and date. It’s got the same standard hard cover, but this one folds open to keep it upright. And there’s no dismiss button.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
