FEATURED: It’s Worn

Yo!

We got featured over at “It’s Worn.” It’s worn is a great curation of jeans, shoes and items that look good with some age to them. I love those Sperrys, man. I still rock them. Thanks, It’s Worn.  Look out for some future submissions!

HAVE: red wing boots

It was literally my lucky day as I strolled into Halls (downstairs) looking to clean up on some stagnant fall & winter sales.  Low and behold, a pair of Red Wing 8878 Lifestyle Java boots were the last ones left in my size.
  Regular: $235, Sale: $78

I somehow had made it through this winter so far without a pair of great boots. I mean, I’ve got an old beat up pair that look dope from the many years that my dad wore them. However, I wanted a pair of my own, some that I could break in myself. These are a staple in your wardrobe, gentlemen. Go look right now because the winter sales are closing soon with the sizes being snatched up.

BADASS MONDAY: Scott Avett



I am a huge (HUGE) Avett Brothers fan. Their recent rise to popularity first struck a bitter chord to me (I’ve been a listener since 2005 – I was 14) and I became protective of their music and my own fanhood. I’ve grown out of that stage, however, and I’m glad to share them with the rest of the world, mostly because I think everyone should know how incredible their music is. Somewhere in there, though, I think everyone should have the chance to stare at Scott Avett. Aside from playing banjo in the Avett Brothers, Scott enjoys painting, making prints and posters for his own shows, and (not) grooming his beard. If I could have the pogonotrophy of any other human on the face of the Earth, it would be Scott. Also, born in Cheyenne, Wyoming, raised in Concord, North Carolina – Scott Avett is the definition of Americana. What is more American than a banjo? You’re right, nothing.

Deborah - and he is amazingly gorgeous!

United States of GOOD Beer // good.is

Representing the better half of the state of Missouri, Boulevard Brewing Company took the title. As a local Kansas City native, I’m glad to support our local brewery that consistently produces amazing craft beers. Although, I do love a summer Weach from O’Fallon and I’ve got some Coffee Stout from Schlafly in the fridge right now, I’m glad my hometown took the title. So far I’ve drank beer from Alaska Brewing Company, Nimbus, New Belgium, Dogfish Head, Landshark, Free State, Abita, Flying Dog Brewery, Bells, Big Sky Brewing Company, Granite City and Full Sail. I think that’s about it… Dogfish Head and Bells are among my other favorites that I’ve had.

I’ll go ahead and tack this map on my wall alongside my “To Drink:” list.

Allegra - As a (temporary) Floridian, I’d have to say that, to me, Landshark doesn’t compare to Lagunitas (lil sumpin wild being my favorite). It’s very smooth, and while I tend to be one that prefers a porter or a stout, I’m quite a fan of this little number (although it’s not all that wild).
I will say that I am EXTREMELY disappointed that I can’t seem to find a bottle of Miles Davis- Bitches Brew anywhere. Supposedly, it’s delicious.

jeff - @Glen You’ll be eating those words when I tell you that I drank a Boulevard Chocolate Ale last night. Mark my words, Glen. One of the best beers I’ve ever had. It’s not a stout my friend, which you would commonly associate with chocolate flavors, Oh no. It’s a Chocolate Ale. Completely different taste. Your welcome.

Glen - I think the list should probably be “the United States of well known about better than decent beer.” There are some much better brewery’s out there that take a little more effort than “What can I find from each state on the shelf of my local Whole Foods?”
It is a travesty to put New Belgium on this list, especially with all of the phenomenal micro-brews in Colorado… And Boulevard? Well, I don’t really know what to say about that.

Oh well, Cheers from London where the stouts run like the salmon of Capistrano
