Solid-Titanium-Pen-and-Stylus

It should come as no surprise to any of you that we have addictions when it comes to cool products. Right now, we’re hopelessly addicted to buying pens on Kickstarter. Aluminum, titanium, steel, stylus, ballpoint, it doesn’t matter. If it’s a pen and it’s on Kickstarter, we want it. There does seem to be one giant gaping flaw with all these pens though—most of them only use Pilot Hi-Tec-C cartridges. We don’t get Hi-Tec-C. The guys behind PHX, and PHX-1 have released a new pen that is easily our favorite for three reasons: it’s made of solid titanium; it has a built-in stylus; and, most importantly, it takes every refill imaginable from Bic to Dong-A (don’t ask) to Pilot to Uniball to Zebra. Until Chadwick and Joe one-up themselves again, this will be our instrument of choice in all things written.

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.
