Situated on an open piece of property in Agueda, Portugal, that didn’t have much in the way of surroundings that would influence the design, this private garage from Paulo Martins is nicer than most city apartments. The private garage includes four large overhead doors to accommodate plenty of fine examples of automotive excellence, with a section off to one side for two-wheeled vehicles and plenty of storage and display areas for gear, art and tools. From the outside, the entire structure looks like a modernized version of a European service station that was converted to a bunker, but inside it’s nothing but bright light, sleek interior and an almost clean room feel. As told by the architect, “a very unique garage was born, a garage that is more like a gallery where the cars share the space with the desire to observe and study, where the hum of running motors blends with the sound system of a Porsche, giving us the opportunity to listen to great music as we sit and muse on the next journey we will be taking, sitting on an exciting Famel.” We’d probably skip the house that’s going to go on the property and just put a bed in the garage.

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.
