man-2-engineering-the-alpha-book

Any book that starts talking about juice cleanses and gimmicky fitness devices belongs squarely in your trashcan. If you want a straightforward, no-nonsense approach to refining your body, check out Man 2.0 Engineering the Alpha. The book simply puts forth a 4-week diet and exercise program that will start the slimming of that double IPA gut. Based on the idea of natural hormone optimization (it’s science), the book claims that within a week it can help improve your brain function, boost you energy, and increase your sex drive . . . no problem there, am I right? High five! The best part is, it’s not as stuffy as 99% of the health books at your local Barnes & Noble.

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.
