day-at-the-beach-900

It’s hot outside. Like, really hot outside. Hotter than a Terry Richardson shoot at the beach. Ok, maybe it’s about that hot. You have two options: sit in the a/c all day and get hit in the face with a brick wall of humidity when you run out of beer, or cool off the old fashioned way with water. You’re going to be hot regardless of where you are, so you might as well work on a tan and see some pretty girls in the process. Here’s everything you need to survive a day at the beach. Just remember, beer and margaritas are delicious, but they don’t actually hydrate. Drink some fluids.

 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.
