Things to do for July 25, 2013
Private Islands, Gin Popcorn and Brisket
A better name would have been the Weekend.
Gin and Tonic Popcorn. Have At It.
You’re a fan of gin and tonics. You’re a fan of popcorn. So you might like to know that some British popcornologists (they’re a thing in Britain) just created a batch that’s infused with real gin and real tonic. Yeah, there’s no way you’re not ordering this...
The Handsomest Koozie of All
Koozies. Great word. Even better at keeping beers cold. As for this one: it’s covered in striped canvas and insulated with red neoprene, and it has a concealed magnet so that anything metal becomes a cup holder. And that’s what’s new in the world of koozies.
You’ll Need This for the Pool
The inner tube. The noodle. The water wing. Great flotation devices, all of them. But not quite as great as these extra-large, Warhol-looking lounge rafts from the UK. They’re basically floating art installations. Plus, you get to pick the colors. Mauve. Definitely go with something mauve.
You’ve Got Mail. It’s Smoked Brisket.
There’s good brisket in Texas. That you know. There’re also good people in Texas who’re airmailing good brisket to folks who want to heat it up in their oven and eat it. You’re one of those folks. We’re sure of it.
