GIVEAWAY Saddleback Carbon Black Briefcase

At one point or another in each of our lives we’re forced to accept the fact that we need to grow up. Sell the IROC and buy a minivan. Give up on your dreams of being a male porn star and get a real job. Trade in your backpack for a briefcase.

News flash people – Porsche makes a 4 door, the iPhone 4 makes anything possible, and Saddleback Leather is still making briefcases. At first, you might think the Saddleback Leather Carbon Black Briefcase isn’t as impressive as a performance-tuned German automobile or a phone with limitless amateur porn potential – but you would be wrong. If anything, the fact that you’re going to be carrying this every day makes the full grain boot leather, lack of breakable parts, and 100 year warranty (yes, it’s warrantied until well after you are) all the more important. Unlike a certain unnamed mobile device manufacturer, Saddleback believes in function as well as form so this converts to a backpack as well.

Anything more impressive than a Porsche and amateur tube sites is going to come at a pretty steep price, right? Not this time gents, not this time. Saddleback Leather sent us one $519 Carbon Black Briefcase to give away gratis. Here’s how you win:

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.
