To whom it may concern,
We are very, very sorry we missed your party. Luckily, thanks to the fine folks at Sorry I Missed Your Party, we will have the opportunity to see all the photo evidence you're kind enough to take. We won't be there, but at least we'll get to see you dancing like an idiot, ingesting legal and illegal substances, and generally making an ass of yourself.

We know that tax refund you just put in for is burning a hole in your pocket, so what better way to celebrate than by buying a mysterious cocktail shaker made by Faberge. It looks like it might be made of silver of some kind. All we can say is, for the kind of money they're charging, it better make our drinks taste like Scrooge McDuck's vault.

Gwen from Intoxicated Zodiac just let us know about a cool project she put together including three things we have long thought belonged together - liquor, fire, and astrology. She has created 12 eco-friendly candles (soy wax, recycled glass, the whole nine), one for each astrological sign, and developed accompanying cocktail recipes to go with them and round out the whole experience.
Seems like a great gift, especially if you do the one-two punch of whipping up the cocktails that accompany the candle the first time you light it for the full experience. From Gemini's "Wicked Way" vanilla/tobacco sazerac to Capricorn's "Black Magic" Fennel Orange Espresso-tini, these are intriguing scent and drink combinations, no matter how you slice it.
Read more about each sign and its accompanying Celestial Cocktail Candle; if you need some more convincing before you pony up, read Gwen's How Do Cocktails Have Zodiac Signs? page.

Since our fearless leader can't drink right now, we're looking for a way to help him still have a vice. We were thinking about getting him one of these bad boys - for strict tobacco use only. We just want to keep him off the streets while he can't drink, not turn him into Amy Winehouse. We've tried some crazy flavored tobaccos through a hookah - anyone have any recommendations or tips?

This will go perfectly in just about any bar you'd choose to put it in - especially your own. Just plug it in, pull the string, and your open for business.

We've been trying to class things up around here, and everyone knows the best way to do that is by adding leather and velvet. Oh, and boobs. To that end, we've discovered the greatest coffee table book in the universe, one which will make a great conversation piece at your next party. The book? Oh, it only contains over 700 pages and every single Playboy Playmate that ever existed. You are very welcome.
