Buckycubes

You probably remember Buckyballs as the hot holiday toy for grown men this past year. They were the Tickle Me Elmo for dudes out of diapers. Now that you’ve spent almost a year additively playing with your collection, it’s time to pick up (and probably never put down) a set of Buckycubes. The flat edges make shaping the cubes into all kinds of formations easy and oddly memorizing. Buckycubes are a little like Zooey Deschanel in that we can’t fully explain our fascination with them, but coupled with hours of searching Etsy and, well, we may never get any work done again. Sorry boss.

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.
