You know what the problem with boxed wine is? Absolutely nothing, it’s perfect. But for you ladies out there who wish it looked more like a purse to, you know, class things up a bit, there’s Vernissage. Available in red, white and rose, the packaging is meant to resemble an upscale handbag…made of cardboard…with a rope handle…and a spigot at one end. Count me in. Oh what, like you never seen a man with two purses before? “Did you just sashay?” Wine makes me sassy!
Thanks to PYY, who asked if wine makes me feel so pretty then why is my head cocked and one eye half closed. God, I’m being seductive.
Us doing a cover of Poison & Wine by The Civil Wars. We had about 20 minutes in the Cochran Community House after the Davis family reunion on June 2, 2012 before they locked up so we recorded this live with just a portable Xoom recorder out in the room. There was an old piano there so this is the first time Jake has ever played keys in public. Shutup n’ Clap! is a band located in Opelika, AL. Ansley was 15 & Jake 16 at the time this video was made. Will is still in Brazil so no Stacey was used in the filming of this video. We hope you like it! Video Rating: 5 / 5Related Posts:
This is a video of somebody playing the Harry Potter theme entirely on the rims of wine glasses. No clue where the hell they got thirty wine glasses from, but my guess is somebody’s mom is no stranger to popping a bottle before noon. That’s my kinda lady. Love those red teeth.
Hit the jump for the video.
This is a Slayer branded wine named after the band’s 1986 studio album ‘Reign in Blood’. You know, because a lot of people growing up listening to Slayer are older now and have, how should I say it — more refined palates. Actually I have no clue why this exists and I showed it to my little lady and she thought it was zombie wine which 1. was cute of her and 2. A BRILLIANT IDEA. *Googles ‘zombie wine’, throws up hands* Dammit, of f***ing course ‘Return of the Living Red’ already exists.

Thanks to my buddy Terry, who once made wine out of deer blood but didn’t tell anybody at the dinner party and they all got sick and vomited. SO METAL.Related Posts:
Ever wanted to see what it looks like when a shelving unit collapses in a liquor store sending almost 7,000 bottles of adult grape juice crashing to the floor? This. This is what that looks like. Although, if it’d happened anywhere near here, you also would have also seen a guy paddle by in a canoe sucking that shit up with a wet-dry vac. You think I’m too proud to drink out of a vacuum? I’ve eaten out of them before.
Hit the jump for the Jesus could’ve done it better.Related Posts:

Like the idea of that six-pack carrier for your bike, but you’re more of a wine drinker? Son, you’re in luck. This hand-made, leather sling for wine bottles attaches to your frame and lets you cruise to your date or party — without having to steer with one hand or bring a nerdy bag to hold the wine.
It’ll run you $ 25 Canadian — at this point normally I’d make a joke about Canadian dollars, but our uppance has come on that account, so I won’t — plus $ 8 for shipping. I could really use this thing, actually.

Just how big is the new Trenta size at Starbucks? Big enough to hold an entire bottle of wine. Greatest country in history.
“Trenta?” Oh, you hadn’t heard? Starbucks introduced a new size for its drinks, and it’s the largest size in its history. Caveat: it’ll only be available for their cold drinks, so no Trenta white chocolate mochas for you.
Trenta, Italian for “thirty,” actually holds 31 ounces of liquid.
Just sit back and watch the magic.
Daytona International Speedway is synonymous with speed, auto racing, and . . . blind people? Virginia Tech’s Robotics and Mechanisms Laboratory (RoMeLa), along with the National Federation of the Blind (NFB), recently debuted its sight-optional and street-legal SUV at the famed racetrack. Dr. Dennis Hong and his students first let blind folks drive a dune buggy without the help of a sighted copilot in 2009 — as a first step to achieving the goal of a street-legal SUV for the sightless crowd. The SUV in question was designed for the NFB’s Blind Driver Challenge, and is equipped with a drive-by-wire system — also seen in the RoMeLa autonomous vehicle — that was modified for use with RoMeLa’s SpeedStrip and DriveGrip tactile interface technology. It works by using a laser rangefinder to map the surrounding area, relaying information for acceleration and braking to the driver by rumbling the SpeedStrip seat, and passing along turning info through vibrations in the DriveGrip gloves. The system was not developed solely for the purpose of getting blind drivers on the road, however, as Virginia Tech suggests that its technology could also be used in gaming applications. We’re not quite ready to see blind drivers on actual roads just yet, but why shouldn’t our sight-impaired friends get to enjoy Gran Turismo 5 with the rest of us? Video’s after the break.

Everybody is using the iPad in so many unique ways, and now businesses are doing the same. for instance, if you are dining in NYC, then check this out. South Gate restaurant is the first New York City restaurant to launch custom designed iPad wine tablets.
That’s right, the iPad is now being offered as a way for customers to navigate South Gate’s extensive wine list of over 650 bottles.
