Chilewich-Faux-Bois-Placemats

We don’t remember much from French class outside of “oui” and “Grey Poupon” but we know that when we hear the word “faux” we usually don’t get too excited. Who wants a fake anything?  Well, when the faux version is more practical and far more useful we can make an exception. This is the case with these Faux Bois Placemats. Translated as “fake wood,” these digitally printed mats resemble actual wooden eating stations. Plus, since they are digital prints (though you can’t tell til you get up close) you can use them both indoors and outdoors and easily wash the spilled BBQ sauce right off. They come in birch, driftwood and walnut and will add some rustic appeal to whatever your next meal may be, even if it’s McDonald’s take-out or SpaghettiOs.

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.
