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

When it comes to cookbooks, you can never have enough if they involve alcohol, popular condiments or meat. We never thought we'd get to the point that we would actually enjoy reading or using a cookbook, but when the subtitle is "From IPAs and Bocks to Pilsners and Porters, 100 Artisanal Recipes for Cooking with Beer," ... continue reading

The Wire Poster Project

The Wire was the best television show of all time. There, we said it. Listen, we loved Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, and Animaniacs as much as the next guy, but when it comes to our favorite, we still have to go with McNulty, Omar, and the rest of the gang. In honor of the HBO classic, hang a piece from The Wire Poster ... continue reading

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

Louis CK – Oh My God

Coming up with a great stand-up bit can take years of perfecting the wording, timing and delivery. So when someone comes up with a bunch every single year, uses them and then tosses them out and starts all over again, you know the guy is good. Louis CK has been doing this with his material for a while and his latest ... continue reading

Only God Forgives

We feel like we're somehow obligated to tell you that we'd see just about anything that Baby Goose was in. Drive is still one of our top movies of recent memory, and the soundtrack is as good now as it was when it came out. Somehow we missed Only God Forgives in theaters, but we're first on the list to correct that ... continue reading

The Wes Anderson Collection

This book is obviously about acclaimed director (and men's Halloween costume idea mill) Wes Anderson, but before we get into that we're going to talk about the book's author, Matt Zoller Seitz. Seitz has produced, edited and directed a number of things, but he's most known for his work as a critic (for everything from ... continue reading

Pacific Rim Special Edition DVD

Do you remember the 80s B movie Robot Jox? Pacific Rim is kind of like that, except it looks a whole helluva lot better, the giant robots are battling aliens that came through a trench in the ocean instead of each other and, oh yeah, Guillermo Del Toro. Having giant robots in common with an awesomely campy 80s action ... 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
