S’mores, Sid Mashburn and the Planet Mars

The weekend may be monitored for quality assurance.

Mars. You’re Going.
MARS ATTRACTS

Mars. You’re Going.

We found a great new vacation spot. Stunning landscapes. Killer sunsets. Minus 225 degrees in the winter. Anyway, it’s Mars. We’re talking about Mars. And some enterprising Dutchmen are now accepting applications for the first human expedition there in 2023. Hopefully you’re not busy...

Adult S’mores, Now a Thing
GIMME S’MORE

Adult S’mores, Now a Thing

Sid Mashburn’s Doing You a Solid

Sid Mashburn. Real Southern gent, that guy. Reason #1: he’s currently giving you up to 50% off the lion’s share of his chambray button-downs, sports jackets and other pieces of finely hewn dapperness. Reason #2: he’s from Atlanta. Which, last we checked, is in the South.
