This year, Milan Design Week is going to be even more interesting than usual because Toyota is unveiling a new concept unlike anything you’ve seen on four wheels. Setsuna, which means “moment” in Japanese, is a unique wooden roadster with smooth lines and construction more reminiscent of a boat than a car. With unique details like a meter designed to track 100 years of time, multiple types and grains of Japanese wood and traditional Japanese joinery techniques like okuriari and kusabi that allow the wood to be joined without nails or screws, this fully-functional concept is one of the most refined automobiles we’ve ever seen.

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.
