2013 Subaru BRZ

Subaru makes great cars. The WRX STi has been a rally favorite for almost as long as most of us have been able to drive, but it (along with the rest of Subaru’s line) has always suffered from one critical flaw: they’re ugly. They’ll never beat out the Cube or the Aztek in the ugly awards, but it isn’t pretty either. Now, look at the 2013 BRZ. Let that sink in for a minute. Subaru managed to take what looks like a Lexus rear-end, a Nissan midsection and a Honda grill and make it not look ugly. The Japanese auto-maker smorgasbord also includes Subaru’s new 200hp Boxer engine, 6-spd manual (or adaptive 6-spd automatic) transmission, independent suspension and rear-wheel drive. Tech goodies (Bluetooth, iPod, Sirius, GPS, etc.) and seven different paint jobs round out the package. Pick one up now before it inevitably ends up in the as-of-yet-unannounced Fast and the Furious sequel.

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.
