It should come as no surprise that we love a good cocktail. There are plenty of easy cocktails that don’t suck. But when you want to recreate something super fancy from your favorite cocktail bar, you’re going to need to step up your ingredients and, just as importantly, your hardware. That’s where the Poor Man’s Kitchen Kilpatrick Fine Strainer comes in. Made by bartenders, for bartenders, this professional grade tool combines the iconic Hawthorne strainer (the flat disc with the big spring on the bottom that you probably got in a cocktail kit and never use) with a fine mesh strainer. It turns a two-step process into a single step, which saves time, reduces hardware and also makes cleanup easier. It’s such a simple, brilliant and well-executed idea that we can’t believe it’s a product that didn’t exist already. The project has already crushed it’s funding goal on Kickstarter with an estimated delivery in October of this year.

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?
