A sneak peak at potentially the best part of the Super Bowl—the commercials.
Soon enough it will be Sunday, and the biggest game of the year will have everyone in the country glued to the television. Whether it is the game, the food, or the excuse to get a little sauced that has you pumped for this weekend – there is one thing that we can all agree on: this marks the one time in the whole year that we actually ENJOY the commercials.
Advertisers have gotten so good at what they do that have many of us (those who aren’t Seahawks or Broncos fans) are more excited to watch the ads than we are the game. Sure there is the half time show, but Janet sort of ruined the chance of any new surprises, and for all we know the lights could go out again. So we decided to give you guys a sneak peak of the show between big show, the pièce de résistance, the water cooler material for Monday morning- after all, why should we wait?
This dog followed Sebastian Wahlhuetter for an entire week in the Himalayas.
This dog just appeared out of nowhere and followed us for an entire week during our trekking trip in the Himalayan outback. He always used to sleep in front of our tent and guarded us in the nights. When I decided to get up at 4 a.m. to climb the next 5000 m peak for sunrise he accompanied me as well. On the top he was sitting for the entire 30 minutes on this place looking straight into the countryside. I'm normally quite reserved towards dogs, but this one became a real friend to me. – S.W.
Sebastian Wahlhuetter was on the front page earlier this week. Of Reddit. But amid the wash of Redditors rushing to give the Upvote, no one knows his whole story. So, we caught up with him to hear of the adventure that went into the taking of his viral picture.

Remembering the great cold weather games on the gridiron.
The NFL has never specified a temperature at which it’s too cold for football. Which means, for a sport that starts its playoffs in the heart of winter, there have been some pretty important games that have been played in pretty cold conditions.
If this Sunday’s forecast holds, Super Bowl XLVIII will be the coldest outdoor Super Bowl ever played. While the should-Super-Bowls-be-played-in-cold-weather debate continues, we thought we’d revisit some of the big games that have been played in the most challenging of elements.
All ye beer drinkers, we give you the best hoppy, fermented festivals of 2014.
The nectar of the gods, the drink of Pharaohs, and the Sumerian celebrant, here to christen all of life’s peaks and valleys. Oh beer, we do not tire of thee, and, we thinketh, we are not alone.
But how shall we celebrate thy goodness? With giant steins of frothy fermentation, clanking together over wooden tables and foreign ladies dressed in dirndls? Or under more demure circumstances and with a scent to the nostrils and a full flush of the palate?
No, we will join together on our own soil to celebrate the craftiness of our brewmasters, and we will raise our glasses and taste the bubbly goodness in gatherings around the nation—at the very best, the absolute best, Beer Festivals of America!
As the dust in Park City settles, we troll the experts and our inner Ebert for the best films.
This past weekend, The 30th Annual Sundance Film Festival wrapped up in Park City, Utah. Sundance is the mecca of US film festivals, and it gives up-and-coming filmmakers (and actors) the opportunity to make a name for themselves on the big screen.
We were lucky enough to catch a screening of the one the most talked about films at the festival, Young Ones, but just one film left us wanting more. So, we decided to compile a list of the biggest hits from this year’s festival–the ones we missed, but will be sure to catch. So get acquainted with some fresh faces (and familiar ones), as we provide an early glimpse of the future of film.
We talk sailing, farms, and Bulleit Rye with the co-founder & CEO of Ledbury.
The fourth post in a series that's like a vulcan mind meld between us and the Tastemakers of today.
Ledbury is one of the finest shirt makers we've come across (on both sides of the pond), so we set out to get a behind the scenes look at what drives the company's cool. Co-Founder and CEO Paul Trible sat down and shared a few things that help the inspiration (Bourbon always works)…
Getting our hands tasty with the most delicious part of winter—a crab boil.
It’s the most delicious death ever—the pincers and legs disappearing into the stew of winter vegetables and bay spice. It's a crab boil, the noblest way for a decapod to die. So Consider the Lobster be damned, we had Chef Timmy cook up some crab that even DFW would have salivated over.
Chef Timmy, of Local’s Corner, wanted to do things the southern way—and his way. He stewed the traditional sausage and potato, and he laid out the newspaper on the table. But he also mixed up his own Crab Boil Spice Mix, and he added some cabbage, fennel, and herbs to the pot.
Retired train depot receives a contemporary twist in the hills of Connecticut.
Nestled into the foothills of northeastern Connecticut, the minds behind Gray Organschi Architecture had a vision. In front of them sat a retired early 19th century train depot, which, for the better part of a century, had sat crumbling from the ground up.
Ideas bread inspiration and inspiration lends a hand to progress, which allowed this neglected piece of history to be reconstructed into a stunning contemporary home.
Artists, architects, and tactical slight of hand helped American forces win WWII.
World War II marked one of the darkest times in American history. A global struggle strung across continents – the world at large, was on the brink of complete decimation for better part of a decade. However, amongst all the darkness, this war also provided one of the most creative deceptions to ever be successfully deployed: America’s Ghost Army.
Inspired by the successful deception created by their allied British troops in the Battle of El Alamein, the US Army formed a special unit of their own, the 23rd Special Headquarters. Assigned to carry out strategic operations that would provide the illusion of large American forces, the 23rd was created to out wit the enemy not out muscle them.
