Yamaha-PDX-11-Portable-Speaker

It’s been a long time since there was a product we were willing to buy 6 AA batteries for. Once you hit a certain age in life (post GI Joe/Transformers/TMNT) you don’t even really expect Christmas presents to need batteries. Yamaha is going old school with the boom box style PDX-11 Portable Speaker. Load up the stage-light-style PDX-11 with 6 AA batteries, throw your iPod/iPhone in the dock connector and get down. The acoustic experts at Yamaha understand the importance of bass, so they somehow managed to pack a 4″ woofer along with their unique two-way speaker system into the roughly 9″ x 9″ x 9″ package. There’s also a remote and four different colors available so you can customize your impromptu dance party to your liking.

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.
