Many guys have a passing interest in poker that never evolves out of a few games with friends. Colson Whitehead took his neighborhood poker interest and tried his hand (solid pun) at The World Series of Poker. The author who has crafted some really solid novels in the past (you should definitely read The Intuitionist), was sent by Grantland to cover the tournament and see how he’d do. The result is a humorous, behind-the-scenes look at The World Series of Poker through the eyes of an average player just like most of us. It will make you want to break out the chips and cards and possibly go to AC or Vegas.

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.
