Smartmouth-Brewing-Lucky-Charms-Inspired-Beer
We’re honestly not sure what’s driven the recent popularity of alcoholic beverages inspired by breakfast cereals. We’re also not quite sure we really care because breakfast is the most important part of the day. Also, who doesn’t to drink a cocktail driven by the flavor of Cheerios or this beer that’s inspired by Lucky Charms? Yes, you read that correctly. Lucky Charms beer. Well, kind of. The brainchild of Virginia-based Smartmouth Brewing, the limited edition Saturday Morning IPA is “brewed with house toasted marshmallows and cereal marshmallows in the mash, hopped with Galaxy and Calypso, and dry hopped a whole lot more.” Is it as magically delicious as the breakfast cereal that inspired it? Find out this Saturday when it will be available on draft at both locations (Norfolk and Virginia Beach), and in 16oz cans for a limited time in Norfolk. All we can say is, they better have Saturday morning cartoons playing at both locations during the release.
Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
