Copenhagen was already on our list of favorite places to visit, but these clever island parks just make us love the Danish capital that much more. Each handmade wooden platform will serve as a public space you can paddle out to. The first, CPH-Ø1, is a wooden structure with a single linden tree at its center. We imagine scoring many date points with a picnic on it. Dubbed a “Parkipelago,” the island serves as a place to chill in a city filled with hustle and bustle. There are more coming, however, and each will have something unique. A floating sauna is on the way. A swimming platform is on the docket. Even a fishing platform is set to be built. The floating islands can come together when weather is less than ideal so traveling between them isn’t much work. Put them on your “To Do” list the next time you’re in Denmark.

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.
