mixtape-Lollapalooza-2012-647

Having a reason to spend one grueling weekend in Chicago trying to see fifty bands live is not something most normal consider a vacation. But let’s face it, none of us are really all that normal. If you’re going to Lollapalooza, here are a few tracks to get you pumped for the debaucherous weekend looming on the horizon. If you’re not going, this is just a small glimpse of the music you’re going to miss. We might not be able to put all the rain, girls, mud, girls, Ozzy, girls, huge speakers, girls, lobster corndogs and girls on the Internet, but you can still enjoy these 10 tracks from some of our favorite artists.

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.
