Summer's coming, and it's time to start thinking about what you'll be wearing on your feet. Last summer our pick would've been the Reef Fanning bottle opener sandals, but it looks like the folks at Reef have outdone themselves yet again.
The Reef Dram sandals don't include a bottle opener, which could be considered a flaw until you realize what they do hold - polyurethane encapsulated flasks in each heel. They don't hold much (about 3oz each) but that's six ounces of booze you wouldn't have had otherwise, whether it's on the beach, at a party, or in the shower at the gym. The flip flops come in three colors (blue, brown, and black/white) and come with a church key that opens the flasks.

Notice anything in particular about the people in the picture to the right? Yes, they all have beers, or most of them do. Notice anything else? Everyone's wearing a glove. And it's not just any glove. It's the Beer Glove.
We're not kidding. They're selling gloves right now designed to keep your hand warm when you're drinking beer. Does this glove have any features to distinguish it solely as a beer drinking glove? Not that we can tell - except for the fact that they're sold singly instead of in pairs. It's basically a coozie but for your hand instead of the beer.
This is either a brilliant genius stroke that's way ahead of its time, or it's the worst idea since the ice cream glove pitch on Da Ali G Show- tell us straight, are we missing the upside here?
If you need to get your hand on one, check them out at OfficialBeerGlove.com.

We're not usually ones for fashion statements here at the Liquor Snob offices, but we do think there's something to be said for a good old tee shirt with a clever slogan on it. That being said, most of the "clever" shirts we see around leave us kind of cold. To paraphrase the Tap, there a fine line between clever and stupid, and most slogan tees are the latter. We did find a couple drinking-related ones we liked over at Lucky Threadz - most notably the Drinking Games Slow Me Down tee pictured here.
There were a couple other noteworthies, including the W.M.D. shirt and the Alcoholics Synonomous, and they've got some non-drinking-related ones too. Check out the full selection at Lucky Threadz, and tell 'em Liquor Snob sent ya.

A while ago we told you about Scotch scented perfume, and we guess the concept did well - or the scent industry has been spending too much time sniffing its own products. The newest product that will allow you to smell like a booze hound without actually getting drunk is a Courvoisier-based cologne, which just happens to be the drink of choice of the Ladies Man. That's probably EXACTLY the image you're going for. Plus, it luckily is available in both eau de toilette and eau de parfum forms, so you've got that going for you.
We found this snippet thanks to Days That End In "Y" and we can't help agreeing with Mike's assessment that you might as well just take a dip in the real thing - especially since this stuff costs $100 for 75ml. Hell, Courvoisier VS only costs $26 for 10x that much (Internet Wines & Spirits).

If you know us, you know we'd never tell you not to drink. It's not in our genetic makeup. But c'mon, this is a pretty funny shirt.
Should we explain the significance of the commentary on the Amish way of life? For all of you who missed Witness, the Amish don't drive more than a horse and buggy or drink more than milk. Plus, you have to admit they've had it pretty rough recently. Let's all buy their t-shirt and cheer them up.
Pick it up the Amish: Don't Drink or Drive t-shirt at Busted Tees for short money.

As a drinker, it's in your best interest to always have a bottle opener handy. Yeah, it's cool to be able to open a beer on a random object - it proves you're handy. But if you always have a real, honest-to-goodness bottle opener on you, it shows that you think ahead. Plus, you can always pull it out with a flourish when you're looking to impress.
That's where the Obey Hangover Wallet comes in - it's sturdy and looks hip, and it features a bottle opener that snaps right in. Plus, it's made by the dude that came up with all those Obey Giant stickers people put all over the place - y'know, the ones that made you scratch your head and wonder "Why the hell is Andre the Giant staring at me from that street light?"
Obey Hangover Wallet is available on Amazon

As the weather gets colder, it's time to start thinking about how you can keep your extremities warm when you pass out behind a dumpster after a night at the bar. Our vote is the Liquor Snob Hoodie, which is sexy and functional and warm as a drunken, late-night hug.
We've been excited about these things for like a year and no one's bought any to speak of...maybe that's because we haven't promoted them right. It's not like we make any money off the damn things...we just want to keep you warm.
Plus, it has a kangaroo pocket for your empties! Buy a Liquor Snob Hoodie and check out the other items in the Liquor Snob store at Cafe Press, including the Liquor Snob Intern t-shirt. Plus, if you have any great ideas for other slogans we can put on a tee, send them to us at jake [AT] liquorsnob [DOT] com. We'll think of something cool to send you in return.

What would you say if we told you there's a new perfume in the works, designed to make you smell similar to a glass of Lagavulin? Thats the rumor we're hearing about the Spirit of Scotland, a new scent from the Highlands. We have to say we're intrigued, but we generally prefer to stink of booze the old fashioned way, by drinking it. Guess it takes all kinds.
Apparently, it has smoky, peaty notes with floral overtones. Honestly, it seems like you wouldn't want to walk around smelling like whisky all day, so it's probably just as well that the perfume is not an exact match for the spirit. Of course, if you already walk around smelling like whisky and are looking for a way to hide that, this could be the perfect product.

Admit it. Sometimes you lay awake at night and fantasize about wearing a hat in the shape of a giant hot dog, full of cold beer. Or maybe it was a hat in the shape of a miniaturized motorcycle - it's been a while since we've read your diary. Either way, your dreams have come true, because we've just discovered RoFo Headgear, the hat decanter for all seasons.
Just what is RoFo Headgear, you might ask? As far as we can tell, they're basically cooler hats that come in a variety of shapes and sizes, designed to hold any of a myriad of beverages. Think of it as a stylish way (depending on your sense of style, of course) to keep hydrated (or drunk) on the go. The RoFo holds just about a six pack's worth of liquid, similar to our other favorite stealth drinking apparatus the BeerBelly, but you wear it on your head. It weighs five pounds when it's full, but what's a little crushed spine when you've got a headful of Milwaukee's Best?
We'll let RoFo inventor "Mad" Randall Flann tell you more about his interesting product:
Like sports? We have all major sports models! More traditional? Try a bowler or barrel style! Our RoFo Headgear fit in anywhere. Some of the places where a RoFo Headgear can be used are at rallies, meeting, parties, and sports events and at an intimate soiree. Hubba, Hubba, Hubba!!! At $29.95, why carry around or entertain in an old conventional, predictable method when you can add that little extra something pen Nash that can repeatedly create remarkable memories that will last forever?
To posses a RoFo Headgear makes the statements: “I own the most original recognizable unique beverage bottle known throughout the entire world. I’m a free-spirited thinker and a pretty perceptive independent consumer. I revel -- revel in my defying traditional convention of behaving!”
We're not sure what pen Nash is, but Hubba, Hubba, Hubba!! All we can say is that at $29.95, this thing seems to be just about the perfect thing to force the guest of honor at a bachelor/bachelorette party to wear. Learn more and find out how to get your own fantasy hat at RoFoHeadgear.com
