It's your Festivus party; you should be out there schmoozing with guests, not stuck in the kitchen pouring drinks. With these mechanical mixologists at your side, you'll be able to pour a professional cocktail and still have time to be the life of the party.
Is there anything worse than being at a party and having someone steal your drink? Sure! Taking a long swigg on a can only to realize it isn't yours. But now you can avoid both situations with this keychain-sized stamp that lets you brand an aluminum can with a permanent message, leaving no debate as to its ownership.
Oops, you did it again, didn't you? You had to try every tasty-looking morsel at the Thanksgiving banquet and then go back for seconds. And thirds. Yeah, eventually, you're going to want to work that off
This is one of the first rivalry weekends of the college football season, and I'll be spending it in New Haven, Connecticut, for what is perhaps the nadir of intercollegiate gridiron competition: the Harvard/Yale game. Inside the stadium, the future business leaders of America will strap on the pads and play what is expected to be a high-scoring, somewhat sloppy affair; but outside of the stadium, my friends and I will look on as thousands of twenty-somethings consume preposterous amounts of alcohol in an open field. The next day, many of these co-eds (and many more of us old farts) will wake up feeling shaky, with pounding headaches, nausea, fatigue, and perhaps a splash of diarrhea. Many will swear they're never drinking again. I know I've made that promise at least a dozen times.
Wine is old as hell and probably came from Israel, based on the discovery of a 3,700 year-old cellar in the city of Tel Kabri. What did the wine of yesteryear taste like? Accounts range from "medicinal" to "hints of cinnamon."
When you consider that a flask is supposed to be a secret way to smuggle contraband libations, an NES game cartridge doesn't immediately spring to mind as the most subtle design. But maybe that's the true brilliance behind these game cart recreations that you can fill with more than your cherished high scores.
If there's one thing the Gizmodo crew agrees on, it's bourbon. Sweet liquid gold. It's pretty much the classic American spirit, and it's experiencing a massive boom at the moment. Whiskey producers are going to great lengths to keep up with demands. So we thought it was high time we took a look at how this delicate and beautiful creature is made. (Play the sexy music.)
If the only thing that gets you through a long day of work is drowning your sorrows at quitting time, this enabling timepiece is the watch for you. Five o'clock is the only hour that's clearly labeled, as far as the Ish watch is concerned the rest of the day is a fuzzy blur. But if you squint hard enough, you can make out the two moving dots that make up the watch's hour and minute hands.
There's both an art and a science to making the perfect mixed drink—it's not just the stiffness of the drink but also the flashiness of the pour. At the 2013 Barbot event last weekend, guests were treated to an evening of mechanical bartenders that put Brian Flanagan's bottle-flipping skills to shame.
