Inside-Out Champagne and Everything Bagels

The weekend is no stranger to the wiles of the Irish.

PERKS

1 New Perk

Now that the links have thawed, spring is springing, and you can venture outside without a parka over your parka, Perks is bringing you an invite and $25 credit to McBirdie, a new online golf shopping club, where you'll find golfing gear on sale for up to 70% off. Start daydreaming, people.

The InsideOut Champagne Glass
CHAMPERS

The InsideOut Champagne Glass

You don't mess with perfection. Okay, sometimes you do—and in the case of these glasses, it's a good idea. They're basically an inverted champagne flute. Looks sharp, sure, but it also makes sure your bubbly stays colder longer, since your hands aren't in contact with the glass. Far classier than a champagne koozie.

Everything Bagel Spice
SPICE WORLD

Everything Bagel Spice

Sometimes, you bite into a thick, juicy steak and think, "This thing could use a bit more...bagel." Finally, someone else realized that, yes, other things should have the salty/oniony soupçon of an everything bagel, and introduced a spice designed to recreate that flavor.

BUSTA RHYME

Your New Online Rhyming Dictionary

It's a common conundrum: you're nearly finished with that epic poem about Top Gun you've been slaving over, and you just can't find a final word that both captures your sentiment (the brave walk a lonely path) and also rhymes with orange.

Introducing the Bug Spray App
BUG OFF

Introducing the Bug Spray App

As the warmer months approach, they bring with them many things: poolside drinks. Frolicking in the park. Illicit glimpses of bare shoulders. (Occasionally someone else's.) Also: bugs. This app blasts high-frequency tones scientifically engineered to drive insects insane, without making so much as a peep for the human ear. Sure, you could use bug spray, but this smells better.

Woolrich John Rich and Bros. Leather Wallet
LEATHER-ING

Woolrich John Rich and Bros. Leather Wallet

We're going to be honest with you here: there isn't much backstory on this. It's a wallet. That holds money. But there's something about it—it's the kind of thing you could see Burt Reynolds handing to a cop when asked for his license and registration after speeding across county lines with a few cases of brew in the trunk, or Paul Bunyan pulling out to pay for his next axe. You know, if the wallet was really huge.
