Straight-Flush-Book

The Social Network and 21 are two completely different movies, about two completely different things that both turned out, in our opinion, pretty good. Underneath the different plot mechanics (cards and social networks) and stars, though, you’ll find a vaguely similar story about empire building. Turns out the reason for that is the fact that the books both of those movies were based on were written by the same guy, Ben Mezrich. Who knew? His newest tale is one about the frat brothers from University of Montana that made Internet gambling a thing. The success of AbsolutePoker.com also kind of ruined Internet gambling too, but that’s not the point. Straight Flush goes all in (sorry, had to) with an exclusive, never before seen look behind the curtain with the guys that lived larger than Joe Francis… while it lasted. Read the book now so you’re prepared for the inevitable movie release.

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.
