  • Highball: An App for Collecting and Sharing Cocktail Recipes

    Highball: An App for Collecting and Sharing Cocktail Recipes

    Sharing cocktail recipes is one of the true cornerstone of the drinker’s social life, so it makes sense that there’d be an app that tries to bring this timeless activity into the age of social networking. That app is here, and it’s called Highball. Highball is an iPhone app that’s devoted to the sharing and collecting of […]

  • ‘Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto’

    ‘Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto’

    When Barack Obama was in Austin, TX, he ate at Franklin Barbecue (he didn’t have to wait in line with everybody else, though). He wasn’t alone, as seemingly everyone in the city lines up outside those hallowed doors just to get some of that sweet smoked meat. But now you won’t have to wait in […]

    Chicken McNugget Dipping Sauce Bought in Bulk by Twitter User (Photos)

    There’s a dark secret in the world of McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets, and it has nothing to do with mechanically separated meat.

And that’s truer for Jameson than any other brand – which explains the now five-year tradition of special edition St. Patrick’s Day bottles observed by the brand. The St. Patrick’s Day 2015 special edition […]

  • PancakeBot: “The World’s First Pancake Printer”

    PancakeBot: “The World’s First Pancake Printer”

    “Reginald, be a dear and print me out a short stack.” That sentence might sound like nonsense now, but in the near future it might be a very common phrase, if the makers of the PancakeBot have their way. It’s billed as “the world’s first pancake printer,” and I’ll be damned if that’s not exactly what it […]

    Waterford Mixology Collection – ‘Mad Men’ Edition

    Ask 10 Mad Men fans to name an activity they associate with the show, and you’ll probably get one or two “fingerbanging,” a couple “quietly sobbing about your broken marriage,” and probably a few “smoking” answers, but you can rest assured that the rest will be some variation on “drinking alcohol.” Now, the people behind the Waterford […]
