There are two certainties in life–age brings wisdom, and we all get old. When we do, we end up sitting on barstools sharing dirty stories from our glory days our wisdom with other old folks over cocktails like Satan’s Whiskers, the Singapore Sling, and the Rusty Nail. The bad news is, shortly after all this, we die. The good news is, someone has written a book so those of us who thankfully haven’t reached that stage of life can still glean the wisdom and the drink recipes. Old Man Drinks: Recipes, Advice, and Barstool Wisdom is a compendium of good drinks, sage advice, and wisdom for the common man. Basically it’s all the important bits, but without the price of getting old and incontinent.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
