From the great state that brought you Sarah Palin and White Fang (it’s ok to admit the 5th grade version of you cried like a baby), comes Alaska Smoked Salmon Flavored Vodka ($30.00). We were skeptical at first too, but then we remembered how much you love a good bagel and lox. Surely if you can eat salmon for breakfast you can enjoy it in your favorite alcohol too. At least in the morning. Made with glacier ice from Prince William Sound, the premium Vodka is then infused with the savory salmon flavor. Perfect for sipping on Bloody Marys while you keep an eye on Russia from your backyard.
Even though you weren’t of moving-going-age in the 80’s, you can still appreciate the cult classics (and the junk food) from that era. Superman, The Last Dragon, Rocky, and Star Wars never get old. Big Trouble Little China ($9.00) is no exception. The 1986 comedy, directed by John Carpenter and starring Kurt Russell, is a slapstick parody of the martial arts genre. The film follows Russell, a half-witted truck driver, as he tries to rescue his friend’s fiancé from the mystic underworld beneath Chinatown. Russell’s big talk and sad game provide hilarious distraction from the Kung Fu combat taking place around him. Careful though, you wouldn’t want an ill-timed guffaw to cause the Cool Ranch Doritos and fizzy Tab party in your mouth to come spraying out your nose.
Doubles At 1000 Feet
You’ve always been that guy who pushes the limits. Waiting a full five seconds past the recommended deployment point to release your parachute, passing a big rig on a blind corner, and eating blueberry yogurt a few days beyond its expiration date. Now you can push your tennis game to new heights too. Leave the sea level courts to the amateurs and head up to the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai. The 4th highest and only 7 star hotel in the world features a Landing Pad and Tennis Court suspended 1,000 feet above the Persian Gulf. The 415 sq meter area serves up breathtaking 360-degree views of Dubai and also doubles as a heli-pad, so you can practice the blindfolded landing of your Mercedes-Benz Style EC145 Luxury Helicopter here too.
