Things to do for March 17, 2011

The Weekender

Six-Packs, Slinkys and Mixing Drinks with a Drill

The weekend isn’t wearing much under its kilt.

Blending Drinks with Power Tools
ONLY A DRILL

Blending Drinks with Power Tools

If you’re going to do something, you might as well do it with power tools. Especially making a drink. At least, that’s the logic behind this power drill/blender. It’s the best invention since the cordless screwdriver/coffeemaker.

Carrying Beers with Your Bike
PRECIOUS CARGO

Carrying Beers with Your Bike

If there’s one thing your bike needs, it’s more beer-friendly cargo space. Enter this handsome leather contraption, built for suspending a six-pack from the bike’s crossbar. Hey, it’s this or a straw basket.

15% Off Your Next Tie (or Slinky)
SALE-ING

15% Off Your Next Tie (or Slinky)

If St. Patrick’s Day is known for one thing, it’s chambray scarves. So in that spirit, Hickoree’s is offering 15% off everything in stock through the end of the day, including square-end ties, Slinkys and, just in time for Opening Day, Big League Chew.

Two iPods, One Speaker
IN THE MIX

Two iPods, One Speaker

It happens. She wants to listen to Feist. You want to listen to... well, anything but Feist. At last, a compromise: a dock that will make playlists from two iPods, according to how much of each pod you want to hear. Now all you need is a DJ name.

Military-Grade Duffle Bags
IN THE BAG

Military-Grade Duffle Bags

So you have this road trip coming up. And not to spoil too much, but let’s just say your path includes... hostile terrain. What we’re saying is you need a bag, a tough one, like one of these, made using military surplus canvas. You can also get wallets and, crucially, log carriers.
