If you’re like us, when you leave a Japanese restaurant, the sleeve your chopsticks came looks like shitty origami. Maybe it’s because we’re fidgety, but we can’t help but mess with that piece of paper. Turns out we’re not the only ones. Japanese Tip is an exhibition that includes over 8,000 chopstick wrappers left behind by guests at restaurants around Japan. The idea is that of Yuki Tatsumi, a waiter who noticed customers were playing with the bits of paper, who collected over 12,000 little creations. While the exhibition has closed, you can still see many of the sculptures on the Japanese Tip site. Then steal some inspiration for the next time you have sushi.

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.
