board-games

We’re all about the latest and greatest, but sometimes it’s fun to look back at the vintage stuff that started at all. Angry Birds might occupy every moment we spend ruling from the throne, but it will never be Risk or Clue. Tim Liddy understands the nostalgia high we get from everything vintage, so he set about recreating from GI Joe Operation: Southbeach (yes, that was actually a game from someone’s childhood) to Clue in all their vintage, discovered-at-a-yard-sale glory. Except, instead of actually making the games themselves, he uses oil paints and enamel to make paintings you can hang on your wall. Each piece is unique, pretty freaking expensive and painted on copper. We know what you’re thinking and yes, we want them all too.

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.
