grabbit-ipad

Andrew Tang and Roy Gilsing need your help. The American Architect and Dutch Industrial Designer have teamed up to design what we feel is one of the best iPad cases to almost hit the market. The project, on Kickstarter, combines a thermoplastic, two-part hardshell body with a leather handle that reminds us of that stick and catch tennis ball game we used to love. Slide your hand into the leather handle and your iPad becomes truly one-handed. Which leaves your free hand open for page-flipping, angry birding and that other thing you do with one free hand and limitless video possibilities. Since it’s a hard shell case, you don’t have baby your iPad as much as you’re used to either. Now, the bad news. The project needs another $5k in funding by January 13 or it won’t get produced. Get in on the ground floor for $49 and you get a Grabbit.

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.
