Crown-Royal-Texas-Mesquite

We normally wouldn’t reach for a glass of whisky on a hot summer day as we man the grill, but Crown Royal is making us rethink that stance. The distillery’s latest release sees the classic profile of Crown Royal blended with the smoky goodness of Texas mesquite wood. The result? Something smoky, smooth, and spicy. We imagine this one is good for cocktails, lending a great deal of flavor to any beverage, so maybe that’s the route to take when the sun’s out and you want an adult beverage. Regardless of how you consume it, if you’re a fan of the intoxicating scent of a roaring grill, and you happen to enjoy your Canadian whisky, Crown Royal Texas Mesquite has your name on it. 

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
