Each day you turn the page to find another gorgeous shot that will make you long for a wave ... continue reading

Breaking Bad: I Am The Danger

Sunday is now officially our least favorite day of the week. The only thing that even came close to filling the blue meth sized hole in our heart left by Breaking Bad was that other soap opera with zombies, and now even that's on break.

The Modern Day Whole Earth Catalog

The Curious Bartender

If we're being completely honest, we don't make classic cocktails at home. Neat, on the rocks or out of the bottle are just too easy and satisfying to warrant keeping two kinds of vermouth, simple syrup and bitters on hand at all times. Normally we'd prefer paying a little more and getting it from the hand of an experienced ... continue reading

The Craft Beer Cookbook

Mast Brothers Chocolate: A Family Cookbook

In our opinion, no one does chocolate better than the Mast Brothers. Apparently we're not alone because awesome chefs like Thomas Keller, Dan Barber, Daniel Humm, Alice Waters and Alain Ducasse insist on using their chocolate for cooking because of its distinctive taste and purity. It makes sense then that a collection ... continue reading

A Cycling Lexicon

Before this book came across our proverbial desks we never really thought about bicycle headbadges. The tiny addition to your bike headset kind of gets lost in the grand scheme of everything else about the bike, but it shouldn't. These little works of art generally predate car badges, and collecting them feels like ... continue reading

Beautiful LEGO

Most of our LEGO constructions consisted of poorly designed cars and houses severely lacking in windows. Mike Doyle and the other artists featured in "Beautiful LEGO" have gone far beyond that. The book features 400 photos of work from over 70 artists who use the classic toy brick as their medium. Inside the 280-page ... continue reading
