What-to-Watch-This-Weekend-Rotten

With cable, Netflix, and internet options, finding the best thing to watch during your downtime is difficult. Instead of flipping through menus all weekend and settling on nothing, turn to What to Watch This Weekend, a series in which we give you our pick for the best new show or movie available.

We’re in the golden age of documentary film. A good storyteller with some investigative chops can deliver a film that’s eye-opening and entertaining without too much overhead. This weekend we’ll all get a great example of that, as Rotten, a series about the horrors of the food supply chain, hits Netflix. Yes, we know; you’ve seen documentaries like this before. Trust us when we tell you that Rotten is the best look yet at the corruption taking place before your dinner hits your plate. It’s from the team behind Mind of a Chef and Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown, and it will give you something to chew on this weekend. Link

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.
