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.

As much as we love watches with dozens of complications and functions, there’s something to be said for a simple and understated design. The Nixon Patrol watch is a modern interpretation of classic designs that has everything you need and nothing you don’t. Made with a no-nonsense 42mm stainless case, a rock-solid Miyota quartz movement and a stainless 3-link bracelet, it’s as clean and slim as it is durable and attractive. Add in the bold indices on the face to complete the sleek and stylish look. This is the watch for the makers and doers.
