KeepCup-Reusable-Cups

To say when we wake up we want a cup of coffee would be a gross understatement. When we wake up we need a cup of coffee like most characters in The Walking Dead need Rick Grimes’ blood. What we don’t need however is some lukewarm java that tastes like it’s been sitting in the office pot since the previous night. For an eco-conscious way to keep that coffee hot (or cold once it’s summer again) we’ll go with a KeepCup. The reusable cup eliminates the use of all those paper cups that aren’t actually recyclable and will keep your morning cup (and by cup we mean 3-8) nice and hot. Plus, unlike a lot of travel mugs, you can just toss KeepCup in the dishwasher and microwave when needed. Now, in the words of Will Ferrell, “Fill it up again.”

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.
