Chevy-Chase-Inn-Pappy-Van-Winkle-2

Thanksgiving is coming early this year. This Sunday, November 18, find your way to Lexington, Kentucky, for “Pappy Thanksgiving,” a bonkers event at the Chevy Chase Inn—the city’s oldest bar—where they’ll pour different Pappy expressions at cost. Yes, at cost. That means a 1.5-ounce pour of Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery 10 Year will run you $5, Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year “Lot B” will cost $6.25, 15 Year will be marked at $8.50, and 20 Year will come in at $14.25. How do you get in on this insanity? Well, it won’t be easy, as it’s not exactly an infinite supply of hooch. Doors open at 2pm and everyone in line receives a number. At 4:30pm, the Chevy Chase Inn will start selling pours, with a guarantee that the first 70 people in line will be covered. We’d be shocked if there aren’t far more than 70 people in line, so best to show up early.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
