What-to-Watch-This-Weekend-Imperial-Dreams

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. This week we’re going with Imperial Dreams, a former Sundance winner that’s just been released on Netflix. Writer/director Malik Vitthal created a film that’s emotionally nuanced and full of tremendous performances, including one from John Boyega as Bambi, a father who’s just been released from prison. Tackling such big ideas as the effects of poverty and the issues of the criminal justice system, Vitthal’s first feature film will anger and delight you. Hey, there’s a reason it made our list of Netflix picks for February

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.
