Yes, we realize it's Monday. We know the last thing you want to think about this morning is a chilly shot of Jagermeister sliding down, especially after all the evil stuff you did to your body over the weekend. But think about it for a minute...if you buy it today, there's a fair to middling chance you'll have it by Friday, when it will be EXACTLY the thing you want to think about.

We love to have the occasional relaxing night of sitting around, drinking beer, and playing video games. Actually, who're we kidding? We like to do that most nights - that's no secret. One of our darker secrets, however, is that we especially like to get liquored up and play driving games.
Why driving games? Well, it lets you test that age-old drunk's plea that you "drive better when you're a little buzzed," but without putting any lives at risk. Oh, and it's also a lot of fun to be able to drive 150 miles an hour with a beer in your hand (spraying machine gun fire out the window a la GTA is purely optional). Now, the Octane 120 Kegerator/Racing Simluator has arrived on the scene, giving us the ability to smoke the tires and drink in style.
This full-on racing simulator has a steering wheel, pedals, a kegerator in the back, two taps and a cup holder. Oh, and it also has over 200 games, a 122" screen, and home theater sound. Guess that's what you should expect for the $7,000 price tag. We also guess we'd better start saving our pennies now (and remind you all that Christmas is coming. Ahem.)

Let's face it - Halloween is quickly approaching, and you don't have ANYTHING skeleton-related from which to serve drinks at your party. Luckily, we've unearthed this great inflatable cooler, complete with blow-up skeleton hovering over it. This is the perfect thing to serve booze, beer, and plasma (for the vampire types) at your Halloween shindig. And, let's face it...you don't have to stick to Halloween. This cooler would be great for all sorts of events - bat mitzvahs, Arbor Day, and (most especially) Grandma's birthday.

Looking for ways to class up your home bar? Thinking your dorm room needs another liquor-related item to really tie the room together? Sick of drinking in the dark? If any of these questions describes you, then "Let's Get Lit" liquor bottle candles could be right for you.
Let's Get Lit makes high-quality, gel wax candles in bottles ranging from Jack Daniels to Jager to Jameson's, and beer bottles too, in odors from "beer to vanilla." The only downside we see is that these candles cost as much or more than the hard stuff that originally came in the bottles, but when we look on the bright side - at least the candle will last longer than a Saturday night and you probably won't have a headache when you're done with it.

Nowadays, everybody's got some kind of bottle opener hanging from their key ring, but they're usually chintzy little plastic things that aren't all that exciting. Plus, don't you have enough non-key crap hanging off your keychain right now? Why not pick up a bottle opener that actually looks like a key, so it blends right in until you need it? Of course, this key might not blend in with your others unless you're the caretaker of a cemetery or the keymaster for Zuul, but hey - at least it looks badass.

We don't want much out of life. All we ask, really, is to have a wall-mounted bottle opener in every single room of our house. Ask and ye shall receive - one each of bottle openers sporting logos for Guinness (kitchen), Brooklyn Brewery (back porch), Miller High Life (master bedroom, of course - it's champagne after all), Honey Brown (living room), and Coors (bathroom - hey, you never know).

Sometimes, we look at a product and just think to ourselves "Oh, man - we need this so hard." Today's candidate for our drooling affection is the Evolution Mobile Bar - a full-on bar that folds up so it's not much bigger than a rolling suitcase.
We don't have full control of ourselves right now, so we'll give you the product features right from Kegworks. If you'll excuse us, we have to go sell some organs or figure out another way to save a couple grand.

There are some days when we don't really care what booze tastes like - we're just there for the effects, and we could drink it out of a mason jar and be totally happy. Other days, however, we're in a more ruminative mood, and we look for a glass that will accentuate the odors and flavors inherent in each liquor. We're the Liquor Snobs after all, and sometimes a juice glass just doesn't cut it.
That's why we're excited to be reviewing Spirit Sippers, glasses designed for the sipping and tasting of various liquors - the Wide Mouth for Bourbons, the Glencairn for Scotch, the Flare for Rum, and the Tulips for Tequila. You can expect to see reviews of each type of glass as soon as we can carve out some time to sip and truly savor each type of spirit.
Learn more and read up on each distinctive shape at Spirit Sippers.

We can't tell you how many times we've gone to open a beer bottle, and wished we'd had enough memory storage available to carry a spreadsheet about how much we've drank. Well, maybe not, but we now have that option thanks to the TrekStor USB Stick Bottle Opener. They're available in 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16 GB models too - so keep an eye out for them to be available in October.

Long have we dreamed of pouring our black and tans through the back of a turtle. Now, we can live that dream with the Brutul Lagerhead. It's got a clever name, it's cuter than a bent-up spoon if you're trying to get your special lady into black and tans, and it has an included bottle opener. Not too shabby for ten bucks.
