We've all heard the stories about the time the boys in Motley Crue decided to shoot up Jack Daniels instead of drinking it. Now you can come close to such rock star shenanigans with your own IV-themed booze dispenser. It comes with a glass bottle, IV-style tube, a tabletop hanging rack, and stickers so you can personalize it. This is just for fun, though - don't try to actually take your liquor intravenously. Not only is it dangerous and stupid, you have to ask yourself...do you really want to be anything like Tommy Lee and/or Vince Neil? We thought not.

We know it's not even Black Friday yet, but we're pretty sure we've already found the greatest stocking stuffer known to man. Do you know how many times we've had a bottle of wine and forgotten to bring a corkscrew? Many times. And whether you're on a picnic, in a motel room, or just about anywhere other than home, it can be a real pain in the ass to find one. We'll never have to push the cork into the bottle with a pen again, thanks to this little baby.

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.

We just got a package in the mail, and we were pretty excited about what was inside - our very own BoozeBelly! The BoozeBelly is a stealth drinking device that you wrap around your already-prodigious gut to smuggle beer and other consumables into place like concerts, movie theaters, sporting events, etc.
The BoozeBelly reminded us of another stealth drinking device that will remain nameless, but after we thought about it a bit we think we might already like this one better. For one thing, with only a belt to go around your waist it's simpler, without a crazy harness and truss to put on. For the second thing, it's a fraction of the price of its competitor - we were always slightly hesitant to recommend the other device because we pictured some overzealous security guard impounding it and you losing your $50 investment.
Expect to see a review coming up; if you're anxious head on over to BoozeBelly.com to pick one up for less than fifteen bucks.
Note: We took the image above from Tailgating Ideas; head over there to see a full video demo of the product.

"There's no freaking way I'm drinking beer out of that."
You'd be surprised how often we hear those words or some variation in our line of work. It's not like we ask our friends, family, and interns to drink beer out of human skulls or anything, but sometimes people are afraid of what they don't understand. That was the reaction last weekend when we pulled out the Bierstick at a barbecue to try to get some other folks to try it out.
They were nervous about the syringe-y ness of it, they were reluctant to drink beer out of something that looked like it would jet beer directly at their gag button, and some of the guys balked at the phallus-like shape. But of course, that was before people started drinking. We're not sure if you know this, but copious amounts of beer tends to lower people's inhibitions. Read on to find out how our extensive testing of the Bierstick went.

Last week, we took the Web by storm with our story about the Bierstick, a mammoth syringe for getting up to two cans of beer into your system in two seconds or less. This week, we have one in our grubby paws. We can't wait to check it out, though we are a little bit concerned we'll hit our gag button with our first attempt. That's why we're planning to make one of the interns take the first swing and see what happens. Expect a review ASAP.

It seems everyone's trying to build the better beer-drinking mousetrap these days, and they're getting inventive doing so. Some of our favorites have so far have been the Flabongo and the Giant Jellyfish, but a new contender has entered the fray.
The Bierstick is a device shaped like a giant hypodermic, but no, we're not suggesting you inject booze like Motley Crue did - this hypo has a mouthpiece instead of a needle. According to the instructions, you just fill it up with beer and press the plunger to ingest it at your own speed. Seems like an interesting rapid-beer-consumption alternative to the beer bong, but of course that remains to be seen.
The Bierstick costs about $20; find out more at Bierstick.com, and we'll get a review 'stick ASAP.

These red wine glasses are based on the 7 deadly sins. Each glass encapsulates a sin, which is revealed through the ritual of drinking (something we're very familiar with here at Liquor Snob). The ‘7 Deadly Glasses’ are about celebrating passion and encouraging the user to be sinful in a theatrical fashion, and to also over indulge in whatever vice you seem to have when drinking.
If you're in London between June 12th and 19th, you can see the glasses being exhibited at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design Degree Show. If in person you seem to think you NEED seven deadly wine glasses, you can order one of the limited edition sets. They come in a mahogany, velvet and brass case, so expect the set to cost a sinful amount.

When some people throw a party, they want classy - crystal decanters, stemmed glasses, upturned pinkies. When we throw a party, we want volume - amped music, loud laughter, and six gallons of booze minimum. That's what you get with the beverage bucket - no frills, just a bucket with room for six gallons of hooch, and a spigot to pour it with. We might just keep one in the living room for when we're watching TV.
