Leave it to the Norwegians to do something as crazy as creating a giant sculpture that doubles as a house. Dubbed “A House to Die In,” the project combines the work of Norwegian artist Bjarne Melgaard, the Selvaag brothers (Olav and Frederik) and Snøhetta (the firm responsible for the Underwater Restaurant and Gapahuk Cabin, among others) all working together to build a private residence and atelier for Melgaard that’s also based on his work. In the seven years since the project started, the artists and architects have worked through ideas, drawings, 3D models and documents to eventually arrive at a structure with a triangular facade clad with black, burnt oak inspired by Japanese building traditions that sits on poles of white animal-shaped sculptures that really separate it from the landscape below. It’s art. It’s architecture. It’s design. It’s a desire to think outside the box when it comes to what’s possible and what a home should be. We can’t wait to see inside once it’s finished.

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.
